Industrial and Commercial Applications

Foamspray Insulation Industrial & Commercial Applications

Spray foam insulation has been used extensively within the industrial & commercial market since the early 80s for both insulation and condensation purposes in both new- build and existing structures such as:

  • Factories & office blocks
  • Warehouses & industrial units
  • Workshops & garages
  • Schools & hospitals
  • Retail & storage units
  • Swimming pools & municipal buildings
  • Car parks & concrete soffits

 The material can be applied to almost any surface: 

  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Asbestos sheeting
  • Breezeblock and brick

 The variety of uses of spray foam insulation means it is frequently specified on new build projects.

In some cases it is used in older buildings purely for the encapsulation of asbestos sheeting. Its ease of application means that large areas can be covered within minimal timescales with little or no inconvenience.

Pre-1970s buildings suffering from inadequate insulation can be brought up to today’s specifications by using the appropriate thickness of insulation to comply with required U values and building regulations, providing a cost effective solution.

The spray foam is applied in liquid form, directly onto the back of the sheeting, enabling the insulation to seek and seal all air leakage, reducing heat loss, cutting down on carbon emissions and saving money on energy costs.

The energy efficiency of existing buildings can easily be raised to meet today’s building regulations. Cost effective structural upgrades are delivered by our trained, approved installers.


Fire Resistance

Pirthane® ‘O’ is an insulating system with excellent fire resistant properties. It complies with the requirements for a Class 0 surface as defined in Paragraph A12(b) of Approved Document B ‘Fire Safety’, to the Building Regulations 1991. It has a Class 1 surface spread of flame when tested to BS476 Part 7 1997; when tested to BS476 Part 6 1989 the material achieved a fire propagation index (I) of not more than 12 and subindex (i1) of not more than 6.  

PIRTHANE® ‘O’ comprises of a low thermal conductivity insulating foam.

 Duratherm® OS is an HCFC AND CFC FREE two component, 1:1 ratio, rigid foam system which produces a rigid foam of approximate density 40kg/m3  with exceptionally good compressive strength. Service temperature range -15°C to 70°C. When tested to BS476 part 7 the foam achieves a Class 1 surface spread of flame.

 Vapour Control Layer (VCL)

Used in conjunction with Duratherm® OS, our sprayable vapour barrier coatings have Class 0 compliance and therefore dry to form a flame resistant finish.


Condensation problems

Buildings suffering from poor insulation are prone to issues with condensation. Applying a minimal thickness of 30mm of polyurethane spray foam insulation, will ensure a condensation free environment. 

With spray foam insulation there is no need to compromise on insulation standards or energy efficiency in either retro-fit or new build projects.

Customer Feedback
Thank you Jerry, for your professional service levels you provided from start to finish. Being flexible to my moving build schedule and other trades around site. I cannot believe how foam spraying and painting has transformed the warehouse into a first class workshop and show room. I would highly recommend Foamspray Insulation.
John Mason, Mason Woodchippers, Barton Park, Darlington
Many thanks for your help in the job completed last week. The work was well organised and the workmanship was excellent. Well done!
Steve Britchford Senior Partner, Polycote UK, Bedford
We were very happy with Foamspray Insulation. They provided a very competitive and prompt quote using the dimensions we provided. They had a no nonsense approach that appealed and were attentive and helpful with our questions. The job went smoothly, they got a very large shed done in a day and to a high standard. We are looking to use them again.
James Young, Buggy Baby Letheringham, Suffolk
We used Foamspray Insulation in our main storage building and were 100% happy with the job. No mess, no hassle, just the way it should be. We would certainly recommend.
