Blog Archive Advantages of Insulating Storage Containers and Nissen Huts We look at the advantages to be had from installing insulation in storage containers/nissen huts. Helping Businesses with Condensation Issues We have great experience helping business properties with condensation problems. This post looks at one of our installations for insulation to help a UK company with condensation issues. Spray Applied Foam and its Benefits One of the major benefits of spray applied polyurethane foam is its ability to eliminate unwanted air leakage and produce a seamless blanket of insulation, which is joint free, bonding strongly to most building materials. Otherwise jointed systems give rise to potentially weak points, leading to a significant loss of insulation value and a route to water vapour. Spray Foam for New Build In new build the use of an insulating material can be sprayed readily to any chosen depth, is ideal in achieving the higher values required and eliminating air leakage Spray Applied Foam Polyurethane is a high performance insulation material which will reduce heat loss, from households, more effectively than most materials. Extra savings of some 40% can be achieved over cheaper forms of insulation. High Performance Insulation Best for Reducing Heat Loss Polyurethane is a high performance insulation material which will reduce heat loss, from households, more effectively than most materials. Construction Industry Recognises Benefits of Modern Polyurethane Technology Cost effective, worthwhile insulation is increasingly being recognised as a core ingredient of climate change is to be tackled through the reduction of C02 emissions. Meanwhile rising fuel costs have made improvements in energy efficiency in all types of buildings. Polyurethane Technology Set To Become Insulation Measure of The Future Spray applied or injected polyurethane foam is a chemically modified polyurethane foam, which can be applied to roofs, walls and ground floors to meet and surpass the insulation requirements of Building Regulations. In this respect the process with be much in demand following the Governments move towards its target of zero carbon emission homes by 2016. A timetable is underway for the progressive tightening of Building Regulations Part L in 2010, 2013 and 2016. POLYURETHANE FOAM WORKS TOWARDS REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS Building control officers, architechts and builders – or indeed all those involved in the energy efficiency of buildings – will undoubtedly be exploring the most effective means of meeting the constantly increasing thermal insulation demands set out under Government legislation to meet the UK’s carbon saving commitments. Flat Roofs and Polyurethane Whilst buildings are estimated as being currently the source of some 21% of total global carbon emissions, within the more specific UK PULIC SECTOR context, it is estimated that some 40% to 45% of total emissions (Carbon Footprint) relate to buildings, of which some 65% are entirely or partly of flat roofed construction. Many of these units are buildings (offices, schools, sports facilities, storage blocks etc) constructed between 1960 and 1990, when insulation requirements were significantly less than those currently being insisted upon.
