Since the early 1980s spray foam insulation has been recognised as the most effective way of insulating new & existing agricultural buildings suffering from little or no insulation.
Spray foam from Foamspray is applied in liquid form directly onto the back of the sheeting, enabling the insulation to seek and seal all air leakage, forming a continuous layer of insulation and eliminating condensation. Its ease of application means that large areas can be covered within minimum timescale with limited disruption. The resultant reduction of costly energy bills for heating and cooling makes spray foam insulation a firm favourite with today’s UK farmers for both new build and existing agricultural buildings.
Buildings suffering from poor insulation are prone to issues with condensation. Applying a minimal thickness of 30mm of polyurethane spray foam insulation, will ensure a condensation free environment.
- Reduces heat loss & fuel costs
- Protects crops from frost damage
- Eliminates condensation
- Maintains constant temperature control

Pirthane® ‘O’ is an insulating system with excellent fire resistant properties. It complies with the requirements for a Class 0 surface as defined in Paragraph A12(b) of Approved Document B ‘Fire Safety’, to the Building Regulations 1991. It has a Class 1 surface spread of flame when tested to BS476 Part 7 1997; when tested to BS476 Part 6 1989 the material achieved a fire propagation index (I) of not more than 12 and subindex (i1) of not more than 6. PIRTHANE® ‘O’ comprises of a low thermal conductivity insulating foam.
Agrispray® is an HCFC AND CFC FREE two component, 1:1 ratio, rigid foam system which produces a rigid foam of approximate density 40kg/m3 with exceptionally good compressive strength. Service temperature range -15°C to 70°C. When tested to BS476 part 7 the foam achieves a Class 1 surface spread of flame.
Vapour Control Layer (VCL)
Used in conjunction with Agrispray®, our sprayable vapour barrier coatings have Class 0 compliance and therefore dry to form a flame resistant finish.
Crop Storage – Ambient & Cold storage
Highly efficient spray applied polyurethane foam is a cost effective insulation material. Foamspray Insulation works in two ways, by keeping the storage area cool in the summer and warm in the winter reducing temperature control costs and providing a cost effective solution to the problems associated with condensation. It is an ideal solution for ambient and cold storage.
Conversions & Upgrades
Spray applied polyurethane foam provides the ideal solution for upgrades and conversions. Buildings that are already insulated can be brought up to current standards with one simple application.
With the ability to completely seal buildings by providing a seamless blanket of insulation, the polyurethane spray foam allows you to control both ventilation and temperature.
A simple application of 30-35mm of polyurethane spray foam applied to the roof and walls will ensure a condensation free environment. The foam when applied to arena style areas can be applied to 50mm to create a more ambient temperature and is often used to reduce the noise that rain can create when landing on tin clad roofs.
