Opryland hotel uses SPF foam for lightweight structural enhancement
The recent renovation of the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center in Nashville incorporated spray polyurethane foam (SPF) to insulate guestroom walls and create a new bar and lounge. Led by DF Chase (general contractor) and Insulation Solutions of Tennessee (SPF contractor), the Building Team chose CertaSpray closed-cell foam insulation to cover exposed brick during wall system renovations in guestrooms. Redesign of the hotel’s Cascade Atrium also featured closed-cell SPF. A new bar and lounge, called The Falls Bar, uses the product to support the bar’s weight and anticipated live loads of the bar area.
