No brand, it comes in long rolls that they put down as the roof goes on. It does not have a very high R value, just enough to prevent condensation.
Yes. Typically, they roll insulation out between the trusses and steel.
Might need them because the price would indicate someone pooping money.
Avoid metal grates if you value your horses teeth.
Line-X is the way to go on the spray in, just no comparison from what I have experienced. Ditto the issues with any type of soft liner, it will flop.
After the fact, you have a few options. Insulating during construction would have been best. I would look at cutting and placing rigid pink foam between the trusses or having foam sprayed.
Makes it darn near impossible to build any type of barn or arena in our county now. Anything over 5,000 square feet of disturbance, or 100 yards of dirt moved (50 yards out and 50 yards of fill...
If you open the image in my previous post, you will see it goes a bit beyond concern. We were fine for a long period with the grates, and then over a short period, had several horses with severe...
See, no problem....
Yep, it is not a problem until you trash your horses teeth, then it's a problem.
There are holes in their program that are readily exposed by spending time with someone who actually learned from Tom and Ray.
Dumbing the horse down to the human's level is not a training program.
Our horses are out 24/7/365 unless, -40F, ice covered ground, severe thunderstorms. We never unplugged our fence, but in hindsight, that might have been helpful. We only use electric fence to cross...

It would be nice if someone made a double wall, insulated trough with a chase for the cord to run through.
I have heard old chest freezers make good cold weather troughs.
Driving on just the front wheels is an adventure all should experience.
Really, the extra height costs almost nothing. You can always make it longer, but wider and taller are impossible after the fact.
I am not sure anything will truly protect against a direct strike. We had one a few years ago, exploded the charger, destroyed every GFI on the property, literally exploded the conductive wire...
It's doable, but not with 100' setbacks.
Be very specific with the county about your zoning. Get the ordinances and make sure what you want to do is possible. Check your setbacks for building an indoor and what the thresholds are for...
16', no problems roping or jumping.
That seems a bit optimistic. I bet you are closer to 3,000lbs.
I would still have them do the CPS, if not done, and keep a spare.
