Polyisocyanurate Insulation Job Site Storage Guidelines

Winter is right around the corner, which means, delivered materials may need to be stored for longer periods of time on jobsites. 

Units of polyiso insulation are particularly difficult to relocate from a jobsite due to size and qualities. As polyiso insulation bundle packaging is intended for transportation only, the following precautions are required when outdoor storage is necessary:

  1. Store bundles flat and upright with the bottom of the bundles elevated (2” or more) above a finished surface.
  2. Slit the bundle packaging vertically down the center of the two short sides to prevent moisture accumulation within the package.
  3. Completely cover the bundle with a waterproof tarp and secure to prevent wind damage and/or displacement.

As always, if you have any questions, please contact your local Carlisle rep to discuss in further detail.
