Floor over unconditioned spaces such as crawl space, basements and cantilevered floors

When the space below is unconditioned and there isn’t sufficient insulation, a floor can become uncomfortable because of the temperature difference. The floor finish may also be damaged in a humid climate. Using Icynene spray foam insulation on the ceiling of the space under the floor can help solve these problems.

Results of using Icynene spray foam insulation

  • Even floor temperatures for added comfort
  • Quieter spaces on main floor
  • Minimised potential for buckling of hardwood floors

ECO Spray-Foam Systems Ltd uses the Icynene Insulation System. Icynene produces a series of soft, flexible spray foam insulation products that deliver up to 50% greater energy savings when compared to other insulation products. Icynene is perfect for loft insulation, cavity wall insulation, timber frame and dry-lining insulation, sound insulation, and more.

When sprayed in place Icynene expands completely filling all cavities and voids creating a sealed building envelope which eliminates air leakage/infiltration. Air leakage/infiltration accounts for up to 50% of heat loss from a building. Unlike other foams, Icynene’s unique polyicynene formulation is 100% water blown and therefore contains no harmful agents, volatile organic chemicals, HCFCs, HFAs, HFCs or formaldehyde.

Icynene has been successfully tested and certified for applications directly to the underside of breathable and non-breathable roof membranes and felts and recently received BBA certification for this application. Icynene absorbs the lowest amount of moisture and has the highest level of vapour resistivity of any soft foam on the market.
