The iconic National Museum of Women in the Arts in Washington, D.C. is home to more than 6,000 works of art, including pieces dating back to the 16th century. In 1907, this historic building was constructed with terracotta brick and steel but it lacked adequate insulation compared to modern buildings. The lack of insulation made it difficult to maintain consistent temperature and humidity levels to protect the artwork.
To improve energy efficiency and create an optimal environment for the storage and display of art, spray foam insulation was the perfect solution. The museum chose to retrofit its walls and roof deck with Enverge® NexSeal 2.0 Closed Cell Spray Foam for its air sealing, moisture resistance, and thermal performance.
