Ecofoam specialises in the supply and installation of Spray Polyurethane Foam (SPF) insulation systems for, inter alia, the Agricultural Sector. The applications are not only limited to new builds but include existing structures. These systems provide an exceptional insulation solution for poultry, pig, and cattle houses as well as for storage sheds and barns.
Ecofoam has, over the past 10 years, invested substantially in state of the art, cost efficient SPF application plant and equipment that has been contained in vehicles and mobile rigs to facilitate fast response and turnaround times across the country and in sub-Saharan Africa.
Our SPF systems are designed to outperform and outlast other types of traditional insulation products. The products we use are of superior quality and have been carefully selected to ensure compliance with environmental and statutory requirements.
SPF applications form a durable seamless skin that insulates and air seals buildings, in one step, and prevents any condensation from forming. It can be applied to any type of roof and wall surface, both on the interior and the exterior, as well as to floors and wall cavities.
Polyurethane foam is made by mixing an A-side chemical (isocyanate) with a B-side chemical (polyol blend or resin) in a REACTOR at a determined pressure and temperature. The result is a reacting liquid that is transferred through HEATED HOSES to a FUSION GUN which is then sprayed or dispensed and expands up to 30x into a solid foam product when it hits a surface.
Polyurethane foam systems are installed directly onto the surfaces or into the spaces to be insulated using a spray or dispensing process. At the end of the reaction phase, the foam cures and turns from a gel into a rigid material that forms a continuous, even insulating layer with no joints or gaps, eliminating those thermal bridges that normally allow heat to enter.
This is unlike traditional blankets or sheets, e.g. polystyrene, fibre glass, mineral wool, cellulose, etc., that are positioned alongside each other and leave gaps for air to escape or infiltrate.
Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is the ideal solution for a very wide variety of surfaces and shapes because the material adapts to any profile and, due to its excellent adhesion properties, does not require any fastenings which eliminates the potential for thermal shorts or bridges.
Polyurethane foam is an insulation product that seals and protects the interior environment from infiltration of hot air, cold air, moisture and sound. Its R-value reduces conductive heat transfer. Additionally, it creates a seamless air barrier, lowers the impact of radiant heat transfer and does not degrade, settle or sag over the life of a building. Because the foam is applied directly onto the substrate, it eliminates condensation thus helping to prevent the growth of mould in these areas.
