Five Counties Insulation provides spray foam insulation to domestic, commercial, industrial and agricultural properties. Spray foam insulation is the industry leader in modern, energy efficient insulation options.
We provide spray foam insulation options that are uniquely tailored to different buildings. From smaller domestic properties to large-scale agricultural buildings, you can be assured that our professional team of technicians will provide clients with the right insulation for the unique energy needs of their building.
CPI Spray Foam Insulation
Spray foam – or polyurethane spray foam as it sometimes is known – is a widely used product thanks to its superior insulating properties.
As an insulating material, Polyurethane spray offers unrivalled airtightness.
It expands to completely cover all gaps leading warm air to be trapped inside the property while preventing cold air from entering the building.
Open Cell and Closed Cell
Foam insulation is differentiated into two categories. Open cell insulation and closed cell insulation.
Both these types are created when the two compounds: polyol resin and isocyanate are combined by an exothermic reaction. This reaction happens as the foam leaves the tip of the spray gun creating either open spray foam or closed cell foam.
The type of foam formed after this reaction is based on the type of polyol resin.
Attic Insulation Foam
Five Counties Insulation provides all our attic clients with certified E 500 open cell spray foam.
This type of open cell foam insulation expands to over 200 times its original size, effectively sealing all gaps, nocks and crannies.
Once expanded, the spray foam creates a fully airtight seal, which stops heat loss and helps prevent damp and mould growth. A properly insulated attic can lead to a 35% saving on property heating costs.
Breathable Vent Card
All domestic buildings produce water vapour due to showering, cooking etc. Even breathing and exercise can lead to water vapour accumulation inside the home.
If this vapour doesn’t escape the property it will eventually form damp and mould. Mould can potentially be extremely hazardous to human health.
As such Building regulations in Ireland state that a 50mm air gap or void be maintained between the insulation material and the roofing deck.
Five Counties Insulation provides our clients with the breathable vent card system. This ridged and permeable vent card is attached to the rafters, creating an exact 50mm gap from the felt. This is installed before the spray foam is applied.
This system allows water vapour to pass through the foam, preventing damp and mould.
Our Shed insulation is designed to eliminate condensation and damp. Closed cell foam is often used in commercial sheds as it helps to reduce the condensation build-up; it is also used because of its superior thermal properties.
Closed cell spray foam is suitable for industrial sheds, agricultural sheds and commercial sheds. The unique properties of closed cell foam allow it to be used on any concert or metal structures.
Closed cell foam is not breathable. It is a rigid and dense material that helps strengthen the integrity of the structure's build.
