Demilec provides sustainable solution for urban restaurant focused on fresh environments
CEA Farms, an urban farm in rural Virginia, has created a farm-to-fork experience with its new restaurant, The CEA Grill. The farm's challenge, however, was to construct the restaurant's building with environmentally responsible materials to preserve its mission of serving food in a highly sustainable environment.
As a solution, Demilec, one of North America's largest manufacturers of spray foam insulation and polyurea products, provided its new closed-cell spray foam system (ccSPF) formulated with Honeywell's Solstice Liquid Blowing Agent (LBA) to insulate The CEA Grill with a hydrofluoroolefin (HFO)-blown spray foam that lowers greenhouse gas emissions, according to a press release.
"We are committed to providing sustainable solutions to our customers in the building envelope, specifically in the insulation and air barrier market," said Doug Brady, vice president of strategic marketing at Demilec.
Demilec's new ccSPF product was applied to the exterior walls of the restaurant structure, as well as under the roof deck from the inside, the release said.
The new closed-cell spray foam system was designed to enhance the application process by allowing minimal temperature adjustments required, lowering odor and reducing clogging of the spray gun. In addition, the system provides better foam consistency for a smoother finish.
