Roof Insulation & Stabilisation

Roof Insulation

Spray applied foam helps to meet Building Regulations Approved Documents L and F (England & Wales); The Building (Scotland) Regulations 6.1(b) and 6.2; and The Building Regulations (Northern Ireland) 39(a)(i) and 40(2).

The foam can be applied to various depths and has a K-value in the range of 0.025 to 0.028W/mK. When sprayed to a depth of 85mm the U-value of a typical roof with 100mm fibreglass at ceiling level is reduced from 0.34W/m2K to 0.16W/m2K, surpassing current Building Regulations.

Benefits:

  • High Insulation values
  • Systems can be applied to various depths and have K-values in the range of 0.025 – 0.028W/mK
  • Brings thermal performance up to current Building Regulation requirements
  • Save the equivalent of more than one tonne of CO2 per annum by reducing energy consumption
  • Prevents condensation: complies with Approved Document F ‘Alternative Approach’ for non-ventilated roofs. Calculations are made using the method in BSEN ISO 13788:2002 (and BS5250 Appendix D): Code of Practice for Control of Condensation in Buildings
  • The foam acts as a protective barrier, preventing the ingress of wind-driven rain and snow
  • Will provide more resistance against storm or impact damage – increasingly important with the onset of erratic weather conditions

Your chosen installer will perform a survey prior to installation to check suitability, i.e. the roof should be structurally sound with any defects resolved prior to installation.

Applications:

  • Residential roofs
  • Steel, asbestos, aluminium roofs
  • Flat roofs

Stabilisation

When spray-applied foam is applied to the underside of the roof this bonds slates and tiles to each other and to the structural or supporting timbers.

  • This is particularly beneficial where there are signs of nail fatigue
  • Great for weatherproofing (against ingress of rain, storm damage prevention, etc)
