Spray Foam Insulation
A spray applied expanding polyurethane foam, for use as an in -situ thermal insulation system in new or existing soffits, tiled and slated pitched roofs, flat roofs, including hybrid roofs without a roof tile underlay .
The WALLTITE spray foam insulation air barrier system eliminates clod bridges and uncontrolled air leakage by providing seamless, monolithic construction, complete system continuity, superior effective insulation R -value and virtual air impermeability to reduce energy consumption by up to 40%. The System outperforms traditional insulation materials in all areas of testing.
WALLTITE technology uses zero -ozone -depleting blowing – agent technology, emits no volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and is one of the most environmentally responsible and lowest lifecycle cost systems available. By eliminating condensing surfaces and offering no food source, it also helps to resist mould, mildew and pest infestations, contributing to a safer, healthier indoor environment.
WALLTITE® makes a significant contribution to a comfortable indoor environment for building occupiers by creating a draft free climate that prevents the infiltration of pollutants, toxins and allergens. Maximising the energy efficiency of the thermal envelope also allows HVAC systems to operate more efficiently.
Choosing the right material is as important as investing in insulating our buildings in the first place – there is little point doing it if the insulation can’t offer good enough performance to really make a difference, or isn’t going to be up to the job in the long term.
Specifiers need to understand the differences if they are to make an informed choice about which insulation material to use in order to do the job they want and get a good return on their investment.
The illustration compares the thicknesses of some commonly used insulation products to achieve a comparable thermal performance. It is evident that the polyurethane significantly outperforms the alternative products.
It is clear to everyone today that there is a finite limit to fossil fuel sources. Natural gas has recently become a focus of speculation.
Faced with these facts, various concepts and strategies for sustainable protection of the environment and climate, for the future, have been put forward. A key approach is improving thermal insulation in buildings.
A concern for property owners is energy conservation measures and the costs entailed. The technologies and materials required, have been available for some time and can be very cost effective. In many cases, investing in thermal insulation measures pays for itself in less than ten years, and in many countries grants and attractive loans are being given. Get on board!
From a structural point of view, roofs are the most exposed parts of a building. They have to withstand heat and cold, wet and dry conditions, storms and snow, and even decades later still be water-tight and provide reliable thermal insulation. WALLTITE® represents up-to-date, environmentally- and energy-aware and economic insulation.
According to the EU directive, energy certification aims to create incentives to carry out renovation measures.
It gives information on the energy rating of buildings and is intended to be given to potential buyers or people renting property for construction, purchase.
