Project Profile. Metal Building Insulation

For a couple of years Go-Devil Boats, based in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, had been facing issues with their existing insulation which was falling and causing a mess. High-R Metal Building Solutions came to the table with a cost-effective solution to solve their insulation issue and improve the aesthetics of their facility.

With over 30,000 square feet of area to install, High-R called upon Kinzler Construction Services of Ames, Iowa and Garland and Jones Insulating of Tyler, Texas to attack this project with a high level of experience and professionalism. While installing the new RetroPan system, the High-R crews worked safely around the employees of Go-Devil Boats on a daily basis, and kept up the production rates of both companies.

The project was completed in approximately 5 weeks, coming in on schedule and budget, without any major setbacks. With a satisfied customer and a great looking facility, this is just another success story for the High-R team.

Curtis Sturgill gets published by Metal Construction News

Curtis Sturgill, National Sales Manager for High-R Metal Building Insulation, a patented product owned and offered by Kinzler Construction Services, published an article titled “Retrofit Insulation, What Should You Know?” on Metal Construction News’ website in September.

Below are some key points and several quotes from Curtis Sturgill that appear in the article.

1.Air Sealing:

“No matter what type of insulation system you decide to use when retrofitting your structure, if it is not properly air sealed you might as well light your wallet on fire.”

2. Cavity Insulation:

“Attempting to get a fiberglass batt to fit in an existing cavity with no air pockets for condensation to occur is like finding a needle in a haystack.”

3. Retrofit Thermal Blocks?

“With an existing building it is next to impossible to add a thermal block unless you address the topside of the roof in some manner.”

4. Return on Investment

“There is a lot to be said for material R-values and installed R-values, a big misunderstanding by a lot of consumers and even some in our industry.”

5. Choosing the Right Company

“With the hassle of working around existing equipment and mechanical units, limiting downtime or slowed production of your employees, it is just as important to choose the right company as it is to find the right product.”

Project Profile. HIGH-R Metal Building Insulation

Marion, North Dakota

Winters in the upper Midwest can be unpredictable which can present a challenge when insulating steel buildings.  A-Line Builders of Fargo was selected as the general contractor and steel building erector for this project and selected us as the subcontractor to complete the insulation scope of this 45,000 ft. metal building.  With winter quickly approaching traditional insulation methods were not ideal so A-Line and Kinzler worked together to set a schedule to get the structure dried out so that we could insulate the buidling from the inside.  Insulating the building from the inside once the structure was dry saved substantial downtime that snow, rain, or ice could have caused.  High-R Metal Building Insulation was installed after filling any condensation prone areas with blown fiberglass.  Then, Kinzler spray foamed around windows, doors, eaves, and gable ends to properly air seal this space.  Since purlin depths ranged from 10″-12″ we were able to achieve R values of R-40 on the ceilings and R-30 on the walls.  A big thanks to A-Line Builders of Fargo for allowing us to help you on this project.  For more information on HIGH-R, visit www.high-r.com
