R-9300 Continuous Insulation Block Series

In cold-storage and industrial facilities, LAST-A-FOAM® R-9300 Structural Continuous Insulation construction blocks create an insulation envelope from the building roof to below ground. Combining their high-strength structural support with a thermal barrier stems energy losses at the slab, walls and roof. Architects, engineers and other design professionals use them to fulfill a full range of applications
