Corpus Christi School contracted Isenberg Spray Foam to insulate their gymnasium in the spring of 2012. The gym was built in the 1930s and had no insulation in the roof decking or crawlspace, where all the ductwork and infrastructure were located. After years of being unable to heat or cool the building efficiently, they called Isenberg Spray Foam. Our crew first tackled the crawl space, spraying 1" of Closed Cell Foam on the foundation walls and band boards, creating a conditioned crawl space.

After the crawl space was addressed it was time to attack the roof decking. With over 6000 square feet of decking almost 30' off the ground, the job provided more than a few challenges. Because half of the gym had permanent bleachers, we brought in adjustable scaffolding to apply in those sections. Over 8,000 square feet of plastic sheeting was used to protect the gym floor, exterior painted brick wall, basketball goals, stage, bleachers, and lights.

The decking was sprayed with 1 inch of Closed Cell Foam. Only 1" of foam was used as the exterior of the roof already had 1.5 inches of closed cell foam (not applied by Isenberg Spray Foam). The Closed Cell Foam in the decking was also covered by DC315 Thermal Barrier Coating to to meet Fire Codes for Commercial Buildings, DC315 is a IBC Code-Compliant Thermal Barrier (NFPA 286). On a side note, the Thermal Barrier was white which really helped to brighten the look of the old gym, as you can see in the before and after pictures. With all the prep-work, spraying, and applying of the coating, Isenberg Spray Foam completed the entire application in 2 days.

With the school's choice to insulate with Isenberg Spray Foam their gymnasium can provide many more years of service to the school and the town of Simpsonville.
