Spray Foam Insulation

Spray foam insulation is the most versatile insulation material on the market today. Spray foam comes in 2 forms open cell which is typically used in homes or offices and closed cell which is used mainly on metal or concrete wall and roofs.

Open cell spray foam insulation is used in residential applications, attic insulation, floor insulation and wall insulation. Open cell spray foam fills every nook and cranny expanding to over 200 times it size and creates an airtight seal when applied. By sealing your home with spray foam it stops hot air leaving your property and stops cold air from entering your property. Therefore, reducing your heating bills and keeping your home warmer for longer.

In residential applications especially in the attic, moisture and dampness is a hazard unless the moisture is able to escape. Irish building regulation state that a 50mm air gap must be maintained between insulation material and roofing felt, We achieve this by using the breathable vent card system, which enables moisture to pass through your rafters and foam to leave the building by passing through the foam into a 50mm air gap.
