Architectural Specifications

Recent innovations in the design and construction of bespoke projects by architects for high-end bespoke projects have seen a significant rise in the preference for sprayed foam insulation over more conventional PIR boards resulting in a ringing endorsement of the product when specified for their scheme.

The building was designed and completed by renowned architect, AUB alumnus and Honorary Fellow, Professor Sir Peter Cook RA and his office CRAB (Cook Robotham Architectural Bureau).
This distinctive new building is based on a steel monocoque structure. There are no straight lines anywhere and providing a consistent, reliable insulating layer over an interior surface crossed and re-crossed with ribs and beams could only be achieved with a sprayed product.

Isotech Sprayfoam Ltd was recommended to main contractor Morgan Sindall as approved installers of material manufacturer BASF’s BBA (British Board of Agrément) Certificated Walltite and Elastospray closed cell sprayed in-situ polyurethane foam insulation systems.

We were also engaged to undertake the insulation requirement to a similarly complex structure for the newly created entrance foyer to the iconic Churchill War Rooms in London and the rebuilt mews of the multi-million-pound redevelopment of a Grade 1 listed property in Belgrave Square, also in London.

Our record of customer satisfaction and continuing commercial success is based on high standards of personal attention from initial consultation and site visit to final contract completion.

The material is based on a CFC free two component polyurethane foam supplied to us by the most respected manufacturers in the industry. We are approved installers of their British Board of Agrément and Local Authority Building Control certificated systems.

It has a Class 1 surface spread of flame rating and conforms to all relevant British standards.

We have developed a close working relationship with the technical services department of our suppliers and they are pleased to be involved when additional information and advice is required, such as U-value calculations and condensation risk assessments.

Data sheets, COSHH assessments and Isotech’s Health and Safety Policy and site-specific RAMS are always available. All our employees have CSCS (Construction Skills Certification Scheme) accreditation.

The material is processed through a Gusmer proportioning pump fitted in our van. This machine is driven by compressed air from our towed compressor and requires an electricity supply to power switches and the internal heater block.

A twin heated hose (210 feet maximum length) is fed from the van to the point of application. The two components mix at the tip of the spray gun under pressure and are reacting as they are applied to the roof or wall substrate.

The flow of the rising foam seals gaps in the structure and has exceptional bonding characteristics. The closed cell foam sets hard in minutes with a core density of 32-36 Kg/m3.

The depth of the foam can be varied from 25mm for anti-condensation treatments to in excess of 100mm, where very high levels of insulation are required.
