Our Product #: PWFOAM

Product Description

Constant exposure to severe climate conditions - very high daytime temperatures, heavy wintertime snow loads, routinely high winds, etc. - can shorten the life of your POD observatory, just as it can shorten the life of any outdoor equipment or furniture you might have. One of the options available to strengthen and extend the usefulness of your POD observatory is to have the POD bay and wall panels filled with Ecomate hardened polyurethane foam insulation at the factory when your POD is constructed.

Ecomate is an ecologically-sound (non-ozone depletion potential/non-global warming potential/Kyoto Protocol Compliant) material that makes the already strong double-walled wall and bay panels incredibly strong. In addition, it is thermally efficient and cuts out infrared radiation, ultraviolet radiation, and visible light. The thick insulation helps keep the outside's hot and cold temperatures where they belong - on the outside of your observatory dome - in extreme environments. The Ecomate insulation adds 8 pounds to the weight of each wall panel.

This insulating package includes Ecomate foam installed in all wall and bay panels of each POD.

This foam insulation package must be ordered at the time your POD observatory is ordered so it can be installed as your POD is being constructed. It cannot be added after your POD is built.

Review by:
I have the SkyShed POD XL5 and all bays have this insulation. Besides the great effects of having insulation it also helps make each bay more rigid and strong. It adds more to the total weight but that's a good thing.
