We strive to make new buildings designs more energy efficient and Eco-Friendly, as architects are constantly going beyond the boundaries in architectural design creating beautiful homes.
Within the Roofing structures it is very difficult to achieve an Air tight solution. Our Spray Foam Insulation solves this problem by filling in all the gaps and cracks where conventional insulation products cannot.
Our Spray Foam Insulation can offer high “R” values and an Airtight package.
An insulating material’s resistance to conductive heat flow is measured or rated in terms of its thermal resistance or R-value, the higher the R-value, the greater the insulating effectiveness.
Types of spray foam:
Open Cell Spray Foam:
Great acoustic qualities and very good thermal values. As the name suggests, it expands at a rate of 1:100 times its volume and allows water vapour to pass through. Open cell foam is generally used in attic, under floor and roof insulation where water vapour needs to exit the structure.
Closed cell spray foam insulation:
Expands at a rate of 1:25 times its volume and is more compact and rigid. Typically used for all commercial applications, such as warehousing, workshops, men sheds and concrete applications.
It is also used in roof applications (internal or external), encapsulates asbestos fibres, stops condensation and stops vermin.
There are various densities of closed cell foam, a standard closed cell foam is 35kgsm3, where exterior roofing foam is 50kgm3 (where it is so rigid that it can be walked on).
