AIRTIGHT OPEN-CELL SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

AirTight open-cell spray foam insulation is a spray-applied, half pound density, non-structural, thermal insulation material used in wall cavities, floor assemblies, ceiling assemblies and in attic applications. Open-cell foam insulation is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

Building envelopes with increased insulation levels are becoming standard practice. Consumers are increasingly involved in the selection of green building products due to rising energy costs and the recent availability of tax credits and energy rebates. Open-cell spray foam technology is a cost-effective solution to improve the energy efficiency of a building. The material expands 120 times its initial volume and fills cavities of any shape providing a continuous, protective air barrier that helps to minimize air leakage and air intrusion.

SPRAY FOAM PERFORMANCE & PRICE

Spray foam insulation can be added to your existing home replacing the current insulation, or it can be applied to a new home being built. Lapolla’s energy efficient spray foam, when properly installed, deliver energy savings of up to 45% for the life of your property. Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch. Open-cell spray foam is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

CLOSED CELL SPRAY FOAM INSULATION

Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch.
The description “closed-cell” comes from the cell structure of the finished insulation material. One cubic inch of polyurethane sprayfoam insulation contains millions of tiny plastic closed cells filled with Enovate® 3000, a non-ozone depleting blowing agent.

commercial closed cell spray foam insulation

The blowing agent is captured within the cells which contributes to highly efficient insulating properties. In addition, closed-cell foam provides an inherent air barrier with low moisture vapor permeability, and excellent resistance to water. The density for closed-cell spray foam is approximately two pounds per cubic foot. The medium density foam provides sheer and racking strength to wall assemblies in building applications.
Small imperfections in the building envelope (holes, cracks, gaps) not properly sealed will eventually lead to poor building performance or worse, moisture accumulation, allergen/pathogen growth, and very possibly structural failure. The solid nature and sealing capability of closed-cell spray foam, inhibits moisture-driven elements. Two inches of closed-cell spray polyurethane foam insulation will minimize air infiltration, exfiltration, convection, conduction and control solar driven moisture in the building envelope.

Closed-cell spray foam insulation systems, when properly installed, deliver energy savings of up to 45%!

Common Questions


  • WHY DO I WANT OR NEED LAPOLLA SPRAY FOAM INSULATION?
  • HOW IS LAPOLLA SPRAY FOAM APPLIED?
  • WHAT EXACTLY IS SPRAY FOAM?
  • HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO CURE?
  • DOES THE FOAM HOLD MOISTURE?
  • IS IT FLAMMABLE?
  • WILL IT CAUSE ELECTRICAL WIRING TO OVERHEAT?
  • WILL IT SHRINK OR DETERIORATE OVER TIME?
All buildings show expansion and contraction due to environmental conditions, like changes in temperature. Traditional insulation materials cannot adapt to these conditions. Spray foam insulation benefits from an open cell structure that can air seal your building at a lower cost. It is permeable in nature allowing moisture to be removed. The flexible nature of the substance allows it to expand and contract as your building does in different climate zones maintaining the air seal created.
Our fully trained specialists spray the product into what is known as your building's envelope. This is your studded walls, ceilings and floors. If you are renovating a premises our Lapolla LD-CP-50 our foam is used. We inject this directly into small holes drilled into your internal plaster walls or alternatively from the exterior wall. It is a safe product to use directly onto electrical and plumbing apparatus.
Generally it is a liquid made from polyurethane that is sprayed through a spray gun apparatus. When introduced to the atmosphere in a spray, the foam expands gradually up to 100 times its original volume. It is used in areas such as your roof space, either at joist or rafter level. This helps keep warm air in during the winter and helps your house stay cooler during the summer. The added benefit of this type of insulation is the benefit of sound insulation, thus reducing noise pollution.
It only takes a few minutes to cure. Upon spraying, it expands to 100 x its starting volume.
No it is a hydrophobic material, meaning it repels water. It made wet it dries quickly and the insulating properties remain. If for some reason water is forced into the foam, it will drain with no adverse effects.
It doesn't contribute fuel in any event of a fire and it will not continue to burn if the flames dissipate. It can be consumed by fire and gypsum board or other accepted thermal barriers are required by applicable building standards.
Simply put, no. It has been rigourously tested and is not a concern to electrical authorities. If being retrofitted you should have wiring checked so that any work needing done gets done and if being applied to a new build, the electrician should be informed that any non service area electrics will be encased by insulation.
No. Due to the chemical make up of the compound, Lapolla is stable. The reaction created is irreversible.

Residential Spray Foam Applications

AIR BARRIER

Spray foam insulation seals the home to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills.

INTERIOR INSULATION

Spray foam insulation seals the home to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills.

ATTICS

Spray foam insulation seals the home to stop conditioned indoor air from escaping and prevent unconditioned air from entering. Air exchange in and out of a home is a leading cause of escalated energy bills.

EXTERIOR SUBGRADE

Closed-cell spray foam is recommended for exterior subgrade foundation thermal and moisture management systems. This application damp proofs the foundation and adds to the energy efficiency of the building.
