Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation (polyurethane) that adheres tenaciously to framing members and substrates, when installed following application guidelines.

Closed-Cell Spray Foam

As a component of a “systems approach” to proper building envelope construction, AirTight™ closed-cell spray polyurethane foam provides exceptional performance in minimizing heat transfer, moisture gain, air leakage and improving racking strength. It provides an energy conserving solution to most structures.

Open-Cell Spray Foam

FL 500 EU forms a completely sealed air barrier in wall cavities and can be used to fill 2″ x 6″ stud wall construction in a single application. Its performance is superior to commonly used fiber-glass batt or blown-in insulation. Furthermore, it adheres well to most building materials and will provide a continuous barrier against air filtration for the life of the building.

As a component of a “systems approach” to proper building envelope construction in both residential and commercial construction, AirTight™ FL 500 EU provides exceptional performance in reducing heat transfer.

More About Closed-Cell Spray Foam

Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch.

The description “closed-cell” comes from the cell structure of the finished insulation material. One cubic inch of polyurethane foam insulation contains millions of tiny plastic closed cells filled with Enovate® 3000, a non-ozone depleting blowing agent.

The blowing agent is captured within the cells which contributes to highly efficient insulating properties. In addition, closed-cell foam provides an inherent air barrier with low moisture vapor permeability, and excellent resistance to water. The density for closed-cell spray foam is approximately two pounds per cubic foot. The medium density foam provides sheer and racking strength to wall assemblies in building applications.

Closed-cell spray foam insulation systems, when properly installed, deliver energy savings of up to 45%.

Small imperfections in the building envelope (holes, cracks, gaps) not properly sealed will eventually lead to poor building performance or worse, moisture accumulation, allergen/pathogen growth, and very possibly structural failure. The solid nature and sealing capability of closed-cell spray foam, inhibits moisture-driven elements. Two inches of closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation will minimize air infiltration, exfiltration, convection, conduction and control solar driven moisture in the building envelope.

More About Open-Cell Spray Foam

AirTight open-cell spray foam insulation is a spray-applied, half pound density, non-structural, thermal insulation material used in wall cavities, floor assemblies, ceiling assemblies and in attic applications. Open-cell foam insulation is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

Building envelopes with increased insulation levels are becoming standard practice. Consumers are increasingly involved in the selection of green building products due to rising energy costs and the recent availability of tax credits and energy rebates. Open-cell spray foam technology is a cost-effective solution to improve the energy efficiency of a building. The material expands 120 times its initial volume and fills cavities of any shape providing a continuous, protective air barrier that helps to minimize air leakage and air intrusion.

Reduce your carbon footprint by securing energy savings and lowering your energy consumption by up to 45%.

The average family home generates an estimated 10 tons of carbon dioxide every year. Properly insulating your home is the best way to reduce your energy usage and carbon footprint.

Did you know the average U.K. family spends about £1,344 a year on home utility bills?

“Each year, energy generated for a single home by fossil fuels puts more carbon monoxide into the air than two average cars.”

Air moves in and out of a home through every hole, crack, and crevice. Heating and cooling (space conditioning) accounts for approximately 56% of the energy used in the typical U.K. home. Roughly one third of air infiltrates through walls, ceiling, and floors.

An environmentally friendly home is a great benefit for you, your family and the environment. Take an active role in helping reduce greenhouse gases, thus slowing the effects of global warming.

By properly sealing your home you reduce the amount of oil that is needed to produce electricity and the carbon emitted into the environment.
