Performance & Price

  • Lapolla spray foam

    Spray foam insulation can be added to your existing home replacing the current insulation, or it can be applied to a new home being built. Lapolla’s energy efficient spray foam insulation, when properly installed, deliver energy savings of up to 45% for the life of your property. Closed-cell spray foam insulation is one of the most efficient insulating materials commercially available, with aged R-Values above 6.0 per inch. Open-cell spray foam insulation is a performance upgrade over conventional insulation that leads to energy efficiency, improved occupant comfort, a cleaner indoor environment and greater noise reduction for building/home owners.

  • Eco Insulation

    Lapolla is the first in the world to commercially release Solstice LBA – an earth friendly spray foam wall insulation that reduces the carbon footprint of your home allowing you to literally Live Green. Every Day.

Ty Pennington - Live Green. Every Day.

An environmentally friendly home is a great benefit for builders, occupants, and the environment. Insulating your home using spray foam, seal your envelope and allows you to take an active role in helping reduce greenhouse gases, thus slowing the effects of global warming. By properly sealing a home the amount of energy required to produce electricity is greatly reduced, reducing your carbon footprint and the impact on the environment. Spray polyurethane foam insulation, because of its efficacy as an air sealer and waterproofing agent, has the potential to be a key component of the durability management strategy for a home. Lapolla Spray foam has very high R-value per inch achiving high energy efficency.

Frequently asked questions

Why do I want or need to use Lapolla Spray Foam Insulation?

All buildings show expansion and contraction due to environmental conditions, like changes in temperature. Traditional insulation materials cannot adapt to these conditions. Spray foam insulation benefits from an open cell structure that can air seal your building at a lower cost. It is permeable in nature allowing moisture to be removed. The flexible nature of the substance allows it to expand and contract as your building does in different climate zones maintaining the air seal created.

How is Lapolla Spray Foam applied to my building?

Our fully trained specialists spray the product into what is known as your building's envelope. This is your studded walls, ceilings and floors. If you are renovating a premises our Lapolla LD-CP-50 our foam is used. We inject this directly into small holes drilled into your internal plaster walls or alternatively from the exterior wall. It is a safe product to use directly onto electrical and plumbing apparatus.

I understand that it's spray foam, but what's that?

Generally it is a liquid made from polyurethane that is sprayed through a spray gun apparatus. When introduced to the atmosphere in a spray, the foam expands gradually up to 100 times its original volume. It is used in areas such as your roof space, either at joist or rafter level . This helps keep warm air in during the winter and helps your house stay cooler during the summer. The added benefit of this type of insulation is the benefit of sound insulation, thus reducing noise pollution.

What areas do you cover?

We cover the whole of the UK mainland.

How is closed cell spray foam different from open cell spray foam?

Closed Cell Spray Foam Insulation sets rock hard. Once it has set it becomes very hard and is not able to be compressed and is capable of providing support to the building structure. It is quite dense and is heavier than traditional form of insulation. If installed incorrectly it can cause unwelcome strain on the building's structure. It is impermeable to moisture meaning that ventilation is needed to prevent a build up of condensation in your loft space.

Open Cell Spray Foam is less dense than its closed cell counterpart. It doesn't support the building structure and doesn't offer the same level of insulation as closed cell. The benefit of this is much greater ability to breathe, therefore condensation becomes less of an issue. It also provides much better sound proofing properties.

Currently building regulations requires 270mm of wool insulation. This uses up space and spray foam insulation from Lapolla provides an equivalent u-value at a much lower depth. To achieve a u-value of 0.16 W/m2k you would only need a spray foam depth of 150mm. A depth of just 40mm will give a u-value of 0.40 W/m2k.

I have heard Lapolla offers a medium density foam. What is this?

This foam was developed to improve building performance and minimize environmental impact. It is the latest innovation from Lapolla and is called Lapolla MD-R-210™

it is a rigid foam that was developed for use in spaces or buildings where the foam remains exposed. Ideal applications are commercial & industrial buildings, workshops and farm buildings, like grain stores, for provision of thermal insulation & condensation control

Standard Benefits compared to Light Density Spray Foam Insulation:

  • Lower U-value per 25 mm
  • Higher compressive strength
  • Higher tensile strength
  • Lower vapour permeance

Lapolla MD-R-210™ can be applied on a variety of substrates under a range of temperature and humidity conditions.

  • Contains up to 12.6% recycled plastic in the MD-R-210 resin, 100% water blown, no blowing agent
  • A Low-Emitting Material (LEM) as per CHPS EQ 2.2 Section 01350 (Collaborative for High Performance Schools)

How long does it take to cure?

It only takes a few minutes to cure. Upon spraying, it expands to 100x its starting volume.

Does the foam wick water?

No it is a hydrophobic material, meaning it repels water. It made wet it dries quickly and the insulating properties remain. If for some reason water is forced into the foam, it will drain with no adverse effects.

What is its fire rating and is it flammable?

It doesn't contribute fuel in any event of a fire and it will not continue to burn if the flames dissipate. It can be consumed by fire and gypsum board or other accepted thermal barriers are required by applicable building standards.

Is my electrical wiring likely to overheat?

Simply put, no. It has been rigourously tested and is not a concern to electrical authorities. If being retrofitted you should have wiring checked so that any work needing done gets done and if being applied to a new build, the electrician should be informed that any non service area electrics will be encased by insulation.

Does Lapolla break down over time, shrink or sag?

No. Due to the chemical make up of the compound, Lapolla is stable. The reaction created is irreversible.

RESIDENTIAL APPLICATIONS

Exterior Subgrade

Closed-cell spray foam is recommended for exterior subgrade foundation thermal and moisture management systems. This application damp proofs the foundation and adds to the energy efficiency of the building.

AIRTIGHT HOME? WHAT DOES THAT MEAN?

airtight home illustration

Conventional insulation doesn't erradicate or deal with many of the building envelope issues that often exist today, such as;

  • Air Infiltration
  • Vapour Drive
  • Non-Conventional Framing
  • Non-Ventilated attics / crawl spaces.

An airtight home is achieved by identifying traditional building envelope probelms and fixing them with the application of spray foam insulation and other air sealing products.

Airtight Spray Foam Insulation adds value to indoor air quality, energy savings, safety, durability and comfort. This gives home owners maximum protection against energy loss and maximum comfort.
