SPF Enables Timely, Cost-Effective Renovation at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center
During the recent renovation of the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, spray polyurethane foam (SPF) was used in two different applications to solve unique problems. The first involved insulating a number of guest room walls with CertainTeed’s CertaSpray® Closed-Cell Foam Insulation. The second utilized CertaSpray’s structural properties to create a new bar and lounge in the Cascades Atrium.
Exterior Wall Renovation
Renovation of some of the guest rooms required the tearing out of both the fiberglass insulation and the exterior fiberglass-mat faced gypsum board sheathing, leaving exposed brick. Replacing the exterior sheathing would have required removal and replacement of the brick, and expensive proposition. Rather, the general contractor DF Chase and Insulation Solutions of Tennessee developed the idea to use closed-cell SPF with a baffle system.
