FOR THE WORLD’S TOP CHEESEMAKER, BARRIER STANDS ALONE
COLD STORAGE FACILITY, HILMAR CHEESE
Long before construction began on the facility, Barrier consulted with the design team to develop an insulative roof system that was specific to the unique needs of the world’s largest privately-owned cheese manufacturer.
- Applied 3” Isoboard (R21)
- Used spray poly glue foam adhesive, not fasteners, to avoid thermal bridging
- Applied 2” foam (R14) elastomer vapor barrier, and urethane hard top coat
Barrier was able to apply the system outside of the building instead of inside, which was not only cleaner for the client, but also provided enhanced insulative value. The result was 30% more efficient than the typical solution, and all parties felt that Barrier’s contribution to the consultative process was a success.
