Barges – Floating Platforms of Any Type:

  • New Barges / Platforms -Going in harms way? Possible future interactions with sharp rocks or other puncture possible obstructions? Protect your investment or the investment of your customer by filling as many flotation chambers with Empire Foam Solutions’ 2.0 Flotation Foam as necessary to create an absolutely guaranteed sink-proof structure. Very cheap insurance that your insurance company would be very happy to hear about, being included in the design.


  • Old Barges / Platforms – Way past their prime? Above the waterline the metal is solid but so thin below that a major, very expensive/extensive re-plating is required? Do the numbers, see if installing Empire Foam Solutions’ 2.0 Flotation Foam isn’t a much more cost-effective option and can also put your asset back into service many weeks faster than the re-plating. Calculate the below the waterline volume in cubic feet. Multiply by the installed cost of our Flotation Foam (call for details) and see how it compares. We believe you’ll be quite encouraged by the very major cost savings.




  • Old Docks – Old flotation failing? Rip it all out, box in the space with some polyethylene sheeting and shoot in our foam. Will form to any shape and give you approximately 59 lbs of support per cubic foot of submerged foam.


  • New Docks
  • 1) Building new dock and need a foam that’s going to really last? Many ways to skin this cat, as it were. Get the thinnest, cheapest, roto-molded forms and fill them with our foam. Instantly super strong and 100% sink-proof.
  • 2) Create any custom shape you want with the cheapest of materials, line with polyethylene sheeting to keep foam form sticking. Shoot in our foam and pop out of mold, peel off the poly and coat with our Spray Polyurea and you’ve got a flotation system that is amazingly strong, impervious to salt, oils, anything your dock will ever see. Or just paint with any marine anti-fouling bottom paint for a very cost effective float.


Empire Spray Foam can set you up with local installers to help with your project or sell and train you and your people all the equipment necessary to do the job on an ongoing basis. 


Boats & Ships:

  • Why more boat and ship builders/owners aren’t installing or demanding sufficient Flotation Foam be designed into their vessels seems kind of hard to understand. Accidents, Mishaps, Acts of Nature happen and boats and ships suffer hull breeches and even worse things happen after that. If you design it right and have sufficient Flotation Foam installed in the right places, not only will your vessel not sink it won’t capsize either. The increased cost for the Flotation in the comparison to the costs that people and companies can suffer after an unexpected incident are miniscule. Just saying….. Call us for the numbers.
  • Additionally if your boat or ship has needs for climate control for habitation or cargo, our spray foam insulation can create huge savings in energy and create major improvements in comfort. Or 1.8 Closed-cell Bio-Renewable Spray foam insulation has an R-Value of 6.5 / inch and it will not only insulate it will simultaneously add 59 lbs of positive flotation force for every cubic foot of installed product.
