Agricultural Insulation


A History of Ontario Excellence

When it comes to new barn builds, milking parlour installations, or existing building retrofits, Great Northern Insulation are the experts in assessing and addressing the need for insulation on the farm. Canadian owned and operated for over 38 years, Great Northern Insulation is Ontario’s insulation provider of choice. We are proud to offer a huge variety of insulation products and installation services, including products that are Zero ODP or EcoLogo certified, for peace of mind when it comes to installing products that utilize no ozone-depleting blowing agents, a guaranteed percentage of recycled content, or meet the rigorous requirements for the Greenguard Children & Schools certification to ensure indoor occupant safety through improved air quality. 

A Solution for Every Farm

Great Northern Insulation's most commonly encountered agricultural buildings include dairy, hog, goat, swine, and chicken barns, as well as stables, sheds, barn offices, and manure enclosures. Improved insulation in any agricultural building can help prevent crop spoilage, increase the lifespan on farm equipment and machinery, reduce structural deterioration, prevent freezing, control moisture spread, humidity levels, and overall temperature.

Improved insulation can also affect the overall health and well-being of livestock by controlling humidity and temperature to reduce heat stress, prevent mold growth, and provide a moisture and vapour barrier while encouraging proper ventilation. 

For most modern builds, Great Northern Insulation recommends a spray polyurethane foam as the preferred insulation product. Thanks to its spray-in-place application, spray foam is able to be used in practically any scenario, from barn office walls for insulation and air sealing, to outdoor manure pit walls to prevent freezing. Some of the benefits of spray foam insulation include:

  • One of the highest R-values per square inch.
  • Provides an air and vapour barrier to the entire surface.
  • Adds structural strength to the installation area.
  • Does not absorb water or moisture and prevents condensation.
  • Does not attract or encourage vermin to nest.
  • Can be applied to nearly any application space, regardless of size or shape.

Agricultural-Specific Insulation Benefits

  • Heat Stress Prevention

Better insulation in your barns means less heat stress for livestock due to a more controlled temperature indoors.

  • Certified Safe and Environmentally Friendly

EcoLogo and Greenguard-certified products are available for peace of mind when it comes to air quality and recycled content within your buildings.

  • Condensation Prevention

Prevent condensation on interior walls or ceilings to reduce humidity and building deterioration, as well as prevent mould growth.

  • Air and Vapour Barrier

Certain types of insulation, especially spray foam, provide an air and vapour barrier on their own and do not require a separate barrier to be installed.

  • Vermin Resistance

Unlike other insulative materials, spray foam prevents vermin from nesting. No barn cat required!

  • Prevent Freezing

Improved insulation prevents freezing on dairy or glycol lines, as well as other freezing-prone areas on the farm such as manure tracks or pit walls.

  • Add Fire Resistance

GNI specializes in adding fire resistance wherever possible, mitigating risk and reducing flame spread.
