How Thermal Acoustic Insulation Will Save Your Facility Money During and After the Fireproofing Process
Proper insulation is essential for protecting your facility, maintaining the internal climate, and keeping out unwanted noise. Like any other building improvement or necessity, however, installing thermal acoustic insulation can incur high short-term costs. When applied properly and carefully maintained, however, these short-term costs are outweighed by various long-term benefits. When it’s time to update your facility’s fireproofing, for instance, having optimal thermal acoustic insulation can streamline the process and maximize safety. Likewise, you don’t want new insulation to hinder or undo your current fireproofing. Here’s how Kaloutas’ thermal acoustic insulation installations can save your facility money both during and after the industrial fireproofing process.
How Thermal Acoustic Insulation Saves Money
Kaloutas Operates on Your Schedule
At Kaloutas, we always aim to both improve our clients’ facilities thermal efficiency, minimize interior/exterior noise, and save them money wherever possible. We achieve these goals by fitting our services into our clients’ schedules to avoid downtime and minimize interference. When applying new thermal acoustic insulation or fireproofing, for instance, we will suggest the most optimal sequencing to create a plan of attack. Coordinating with other trades for the most efficient install and also limiting potential repairs is a timing challenge, and our teams can help navigate that challenge. If applicable and necessary, we’ll work outside of your business hours to get the job done. Otherwise, we’ll strategically break up the installation process so parts of your facility can remain operational while another is being worked on. By working the way you work, we help you avoid costs associated with temporary shutdowns and restrictions.
Fiberglass Thermal Acoustic Insulation Is Compatible with Fireproofing Products
Our teams install fiberglass-based spray-applied thermal acoustic insulation products for insulation and sound reduction purposes. One of the reasons we opt for these specific products is because they’re highly compatible with fireproofing. Other types of insulation and fireproof paint, including intumescent paint, are not always compatible with fireproofing or vice versa. Manufacturers warranties can be jeopardized, and simple qualities, such as weight, can present long-term potential failures. This creates a trade-off between these two essential protective features. Kaloutas helps you achieve the right balance between insulation and fireproofing while streamlining the fireproofing/insulation process. The ease of installation combined with proper protection results in cost savings during and after the project.
Highly Durable and Effective
Fiberglass insulation products aren’t just compatible with fireproofing — they’re also dependable, providing strong protection against ultraviolet (UV) exposure, moisture, and other hazards. This durability translates to fewer repair costs down the line. Our thermal acoustic insulation solutions also deliver adequate noise reduction, keeping external sounds out of your work area and vice versa. Keeping noise to a minimum allows employees to better concentrate on their work, increasing productivity across the board.
The Bottom Line
Achieving optimal thermal performance and fireproof insulation is a key long-term investment. Maximizing your facility’s R‑value (thermal resistance) ensures your building’s overall integrity. Kaloutas’ fiberglass spray-applied thermal acoustic insulation doesn’t settle or loosen, and it doesn’t interfere with existing fireproof materials. In the end, you’ll save your facility money by reducing maintenance and repair costs, increasing productivity and morale, and reducing the time it takes to fireproof and/or insulate your surfaces. Kaloutas can help you further save money by working according to your schedule and providing a single point of contact for your facility renovation needs.
