Convenience Products, the manufacturer of Touch ‘n Seal insulating foams and sealants, recently donated almost 4,500 board feet of spray foam insulation to aid in rebuilding Elks Lodge 1721 in East Central Missouri. The Lodge was destroyed in a fire last December when a truck collided with the building and struck a gas line.
As rebuilding efforts got underway, Bruce Dement, an Elks Lodge 1721 member and Convenience Products employee, decided to approach his employer to see if they would consider selling the Elks chapter a substantial amount of foam insulation at a discounted price. Dement’s request was denied. “For a moment, I was taken aback….until they told me they would be happy to donate the product,” says Dement. “And, on top of that, the company also volunteered to send a team of their skilled applicators to come out and install the foam for us.”
Using Touch ‘n Seal’s CPDS Series 2 Constant Pressure Dispensing System, a self- contained, portable, constant pressure spray foam system, company volunteers were able to air seal and insulate the entire Elks building with spray foam in less than a day. “Our CPDS unit is perfect for foam insulation projects like this. It allowed us to quickly and efficiently complete the job,” says Michael Sites, Marketing Manager at Touch ‘n Seal.
The CPDS Series 2 delivers both open and closed cell, Class 1 fire-retardant foam and is designed for use in residential and commercial sealing and insulating applications. Using an adjustable constant delivery rate, the CPDS operator can apply polyurethane spray foam to horizontal or vertical surfaces. Hoses up to 150’ long allow for jobsite portability and versatility. No chemical calibration is required. With an empty weight of less than 155 lbs., and a 24” x 33” footprint, the CPDS Series 2 fits in the back of a standard truck and easily navigates through standard doorways and entrances.
Touch ‘n Seal also supplied Touch ‘N Seal Gun Foam II Fire Blocking Foam to provide additional protection for electrical, plumbing and other through-penetration areas, and Touch ‘N Seal No Warp Window and Door Foam to provide an air tight seal around doors and windows.
“We were happy to supply these product donations and volunteers to help the Elk’s rebuilding efforts,” says Sites. “And, because spray foam insulation creates a barrier that holds in heat in the winter months and keeps structures cooler in the summer, we’re also happy that the Elk members will enjoy a comfortable, energy efficient building year-round.”
