Commercial & Industrial Applications

Industrial & Commercial Applications

Spray foam insulation has been used extensively within the industrial & commercial market since the early 80s for both insulation and condensation purposes in both new- build and existing structures such as:

  • Factories & office blocks
  • Warehouses & industrial units
  • Workshops & garages
  • Schools & hospitals
  • Retail & storage units
  • Swimming pools & municipal buildings
  • Car parks & concrete soffits

The material can be applied to almost any surface:

  • Metal
  • Wood
  • Concrete
  • Asbestos sheeting
  • Breezeblock and brick

The variety of uses of spray foam insulation means it is frequently specified on new build projects.

In some cases it is used in older buildings purely for the encapsulation of asbestos sheeting. Its ease of application means that large areas can be covered within minimal timescales with little or no inconvenience.

Pre-1970s buildings suffering from inadequate insulation can be brought up to today’s specifications by using the appropriate thickness of insulation to comply with required U values and building regulations, providing a cost effective solution.

The spray foam is applied in liquid form, directly onto the back of the sheeting, enabling the insulation to seek and seal all air leakage, reducing heat loss, cutting down on carbon emissions and saving money on energy costs.

The energy efficiency of existing buildings can easily be raised to meet today’s building regulations. Cost effective structural upgrades are delivered by our trained, approved installers.

Fire Resistance

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.

 Duratherm® OS 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 Duratherm® OS, our sprayable vapour barrier coatings have Class 0 compliance and therefore dry to form a flame resistant finish.

Condensation problems

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.

With spray foam insulation there is no need to compromise on insulation standards or energy efficiency in either retro-fit or new build projects.

Client Testimonials

Ian Hills, HSH Productions / Heathrow Sound Hire Sunbury on Thames

We chose Foamspray Insulation after receiving 3 quotes to insulate our warehouse, of which Jerry’s was the best price by far. Communication from the start was quick and easy and there was no pressure to book.

Jerry and Paul arrived when they said they would and set to work straight away.
The application process took 4 days and went smoothly. We also had the white Stay Bright paint applied.

We now have a bright, white, insulated warehouse which will enable us to work at much more comfortable temperatures.

100% recommended!

Geoff Brighty, Environmental Sustainability Associates Ltd. Wilton, Norwich

Foamspray Insulation took on the job of insulating a former agricultural building which we were converting into a workshop and car storage barn. The building was in poor condition, comprising mainly asbestos sheets.

It’s no exaggeration that the foam covering has been transformational – changing the look of a dirty, dingy building into a fantastic workspace, and the white painted finish has made it bright and far more useful as a workshop. The barn is now even substantially cooler in the 30 degree hot weather of 2020.

Jerry was very responsive to all my information requests in setting the job up and delivered a very professional job to a very high standard, showing his knowledge and experience to address some issues about the site and building.

The materials used and finish are excellent and the price very competitive to other quotes I requested.

I would wholeheartedly recommend Jerry and Foamspray to deliver an excellent foam insulation service.


I would like to thank Foamspray Insulation for the insulating and painting of our workshop. This totally transformed a dreary cold place of work into a bright temperature controlled work space.

The workmanship that you guys did was fantastic. Many Thanks again.

We were very happy with Foamspray Insulation. They provided a very competitive and prompt quote using the dimensions we provided.

Thank you Jerry, for your professional service levels you provided from start to finish. Being flexible to my moving build schedule and other trades around site.

Paul Parker, Mead Storage, Ashburton Devon

Foamspray have just completed two jobs for me. The first was to insulate an old asbestos roof on an agricultural building to be used for a storage building and the other job to insulate shipping containers. The advice Jerry gave me on how to prepare the asbestos roof before his arrival was excellent. Jerry and Steve made an excellent job for a reasonable price and I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
