Insulation Accessory Types
As a leading distributor of insulation accessories in the nation, we have a wide range of supplies to fit your project needs.
Barriers & Facings
Barriers and facings are generally used to restrict or prohibit vapor, wind and water transmission between conditioned and unconditioned spaces. These products include poly film, kraft paper and composite materials. Requirements and applications for barriers and facings vary based on general building codes as well as local code requirements.
Foam, Sealants & Cleaners
Service Partners has many types of foam sealants that can be used in residential and commercial applications. These include both one-part and two-part foam sealants that are used to insulate, air seal and fireblock in new construction and retrofit projects. We also sell the tools, applicators, supplies and cleaners used along with foam sealants.
Insulation Support Materials
Insulation support materials are designed to keep insulation in place. Insulation support materials can be used in both horizontal and vertical applications. Mesh or netting can be used to provide a semi-rigid surface to fill open cavities with loose-filled insulation. Mesh and netting can also be used to support insulation so it does not move out of place due to gravity.
Insulation machines can be used to improve overall efficiency of installing spray foam and blown-in insulation. Insulation machinery includes power generation products, blowing wool machines, spray foam rigs, and spray foam equipment. Spray foam and blow-in insulation are often utilized in roofs, attics, ceilings, walls, and fireproofing.
Tools & Equipment
Service Partners sells many different types of tools and equipment used for the installation as well as the removal of insulation. Tools are used to cut, fasten, adhere and spray insulation or other materials. We also sell equipment used to pneumatically blow, mix or spray insulations requiring pressures or other applications that cannot be performed by hand.
Fire Proofing Products
Fire protection systems are used to seal openings and joints in fire-resistant walls or floors. They should be used in all structures to slow and stop the spread of heat, smoke and fire. They provide extra time for building occupants to safely evacuate in case of emergency. Fireproofing products include supplies like firestop and fireblock, fire-rated cable pathways, composite sheets and more.
Baffles & Vents
Baffles and vents are used to promote airflow in an attic space. Rafter vents channel the air from the soffit through the insulation. This keeps attics cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. Baffles and vents prevent the build up of moisture and are easily installed in traditional and finished attics as well as cathedral ceilings. We sell ProVent, Durovent and cardboard baffles.
Service Partners offers a comprehensive line of safety and fall protection products suitable for both home use and contractor use. Our product lines include dust masks, respirators, hard hats, glasses and goggles, ear protection and foot protection. We also sell fall protection equipment including harnesses and lanyards. In case an emergency does arise, you can be prepared with a first aid kit and a portable eyewash station.
Adhesives & Tapes
Adhesives are most commonly used to adhere insulation to a substrate such as wood, metal or concrete when fasteners like staples or nails cannot be used. The most popular adhesives are spray adhesives that are applied before installation of insulation. Tapes are commonly used to seal seams, gaps and tears in barriers or facings. Service Partners selection of tapes varies in strength and color.
Caulks & Sealants
Caulks and sealants both seal cracks between similar or dissimilar building materials. Sealants like silicone are more elastic and maintain a more effective seal when weatherproofing a building. While caulk does not provide as sustainable a seal, it can be painted and is much easier to clean.
Weatherization or weatherproofing is the practice of protecting a building and its interior from the elements. These elements include sunlight, precipitation and wind. Weatherization also refers to the modification of a building to reduce energy consumption and to optimize energy efficiency. Accessories in this category include door sweeps, backer rods, sill sealers, sealants and other items designed to inhibit air movement.
