Project Description

Badger State Fruit Cold Storage

Nearly 2 million board feet of Foam-Control flat roof insulation and over half a million board feet of Foam-Control perimeter and underslab insulation were used in the construction of the new cold storage facility.

The new cold storage facility had to be built to withstand many years of operation. The owner required a way to keep their operating costs on the new cold storage facility low while achieving the very demanding temperature control requirement.

The choice to use Foam-Control insulation evolved out of the plant manager’s research into materials that would meet performance, cost, constructability and environmental criteria. It couldn’t break down underground—it had to hold up for years of operation and not become damaged by moisture.

While researching, the plant manager learned that Foam-Control insulation does not lose R-value over time and that Foam-Control provides a 100% R-value warranty. With environmental considerations in mind, they were looking for insulation that also contained recycled content. Foam-Control insulation contains up to 15% recycled content and is recyclable by Foam-Control locations.
