General Plastics R-9300 Thermal Isolation Blocks are a high-density cellular polyurethane material. They are designed to support heavy structural loads while insulating a building interior from the external elements. They are commonly used as column-bearing blocks for storage facilities.
*Compressive strength for vertical loads (parallel to rise) with 2% allowable defelection at 75°F. Minimum values.
Used inside a floor panel for walk-in coolers and freezers, these lower density blocks, cost-effectively support shelving as well as provide a valuable thermal break to prevent the transfer of thermal energy between the floor and ground. The insulating qualities minimize costly energy losses. General Plastics provides blocks to your specified dimensions.
General Plastics offers its LAST-A-FOAM® R-9300 Column-Bearing Block Series for the following applications:
Placed on top of the building’s roof, these insulating blocks support HVAC and other heavy equipment while preventing radiant heat transfer to the building’s interior. This added insulation keeps the building interior cooler and reduces the load on cooling equipment, lowering utility costs.
These sturdy blocks are a key component of a commercial or industrial roof safety system. Our 9300 Series polyurethane blocks are custom-cut with pre-drilled anchor-bolt holes for securing to the surface of existing roof structures. The high-density material provides greater load-bearing ability and durability than wood.
Our 9300 Series provides thermal isolation when installed under pre-cast and tilt-up concrete walls.
