Why Insulate Industrial Buildings?
You often hear today about the importance of making sure your home is properly insulated, and the benefits that come a long with having sufficient insulation in place. Everyone knows the importance of having a properly insulated home, the added warmth and the money that will be saved. So the question needs to be asked, why more isn’t being done to insulate industrial buildings? The benefits are exactly the same as insulating a domestic property plus many additional benefits, including better storage conditions.
Obviously not all types of insulation are appropriate for insulating industrial buildings but a polyurethane spray foam insulation such as our Agrispray® Product would be.
It isn’t only domestic properties that can benefit from being properly insulated, many commercial buildings can be insulated using spray foam including; factories, warehouses, retail/exhibition spaces, offices, soffits and agricultural buildings. For many of these spray foam will also help prevent surface and interstitial condensation which provides benefits for the use of these buildings.
Spray foam is extremely versatile and there are a comprehensive range of different insulation products and techniques designed to meet the needs of a whole range of property types and project needs across a variety of different sectors.
Why Choose AGRISPRAY®?
There are many reason as to why you should choose to use Agrispray® to insulate industrial properties, the first being the money saved on energy costs. By having Agrispray® insulating a building you can save up to 75% on energy costs. This is obviously a big boost for any business as it will keep expenditure down, which is something every company is looking to do. Another reason why to use Agrispray® is its excellent adhesion to any surface meaning it can be used in a number of places or on a number of different sites on one project. Agrispray® also offers fantastic structural stabilisation which means it can be used to insulate industrial buildings which may have otherwise needed structural repair, proving Agrispray® to be a much more cost effective means to solve the problem, thus saving a company money which would have otherwise been spent on alternatives which could be much more expensive.
Another reason why you should choose Agrispray® to insulate industrial buildings is the speed of installation, because it can be sprayed directly on to the roof or walls of an industrial building and as already mentioned its excellent adhesion to any surface, spraying a building takes very little time at all in comparison to other forms of insulating where the process may not be as simple. This is important as limits disruption to a business meaning work can begin or resume quicker.

Spray Foam Overview
Spray foam insulation provides rapid efficient insulation with no mechanical fixings. Excellent adhesion to any surface ensures seamless thermal insulation for even complex and irregular structures. Spray foam provides both structural stabilisation as well as draught proofing. Robust and durable Isothane’s range of spray foam insulation offers high performing long lasting solutions.
Our spray foam insulation range, includes our LABC accredited and KIWA approved products; Duratherm® our closed cell system and Isothane WBF our open cell system. Across our spray foam range we can provide the best thermal insulation, draught proofing & building stabilisation in one application. In addition to its thermal properties, spray foam also provides a degree of sound insulation by reducing the transmission of air borne sound.
Our polyurethane spray foam insulation products are suitable for domestic, industrial and commercial properties. They are also suitable for other structures including marine applications. The closed cell structure of some of our foams means that they provide buoyancy and waterproofing where required and are ideal for use in areas prone to flooding or wind driven rain. The application method enables them to be used to insulate irregular shapes and surfaces.
Our approved installers can overhaul your roof and by then applying spray foam to the underside of the slate, this will secure the slates preventing future slippage. Furthermore this will insulate your loft and by preventing the ingress of wind-blown rain, snow and dust, will create a clean and dry useable space at a fraction of the cost of a new roof.
No, the foam can be cut or trimmed to form openings for windows etc. Any resulting gaps may be filled with a proprietary aerosol foam.
Yes, our foam products have a zero ‘Ozone Depletion Potential’ and the insulation properties of spray foam significantly reduce CO2 emissions (and fuel bills) making them beneficial to the environment.
Yes, our spray foam insulation can be applied directly onto roofing felt, breather membranes and tile or slate without the need for a ventilated airgap thus enabling the foam to be installed in accordance with Building Regulations without protruding into the living space as much as board insulation alternatives and by sealing all the gaps has the added advantage of eliminating Air Leakage.
Yes, spray foam insulation can be applied directly to the internal surface of the asbestos cement sheets, where it cures to form a rigid insulation barrier which will also encapsulate and seal the asbestos cement sheets preventing any unwanted fibre release.
No, Duratherm does not absorb water but it does allow water vapour to pass through the foam.
Our systems achieve a Class 1 Surface Spread of Flame when tested to BS 476 Part 7.If Class 0 is required then our Pirthane 0 product achieves this when tested to BS 476 Part 6 and Part 7.
