The high cost of energy is a major consideration in the cold storage industry. Foam applied to the roof and walls offers added insulation to provide considerable savings. The system renews the existing vapor barrier and bright-white top coating complies with Title 24 requirements for Cool Roofing.
Central Coating completed its first cold storage roofing and insulation project in 1969. Central Coating Company's proprietary Freezerthane™ System, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) and vapor retard coating system has proven performance on hundreds of cold storage facilities. Put our years of experience in the cold storage industry to work for you to eliminate water and vapor barrier leaks while saving energy.

Here's what the facility engineers have to say:
From Union City:
As soon as they finished installing the new foam roof we were able to shut down one of our 200 H.P. screw compressors.
It's only 3 months and already the ice on the ceiling is dissipating.
From Union City:
This foam really works, the temperature has dropped 5 degrees in the Phase II area.
