From requests for the latest energy efficient gadgetry to asking where to buy spray foam insulation, savvy clients are pushing architects and builders to find ways to incorporate their demands into the end design.
Architects can achieve total design flexibility in commercial building projects when specifying Icynene closed cell spray foam insulation in continuous insulation applications. Both Icynene ProSeal and Icynene ProSeal Eco offer design flexibility in various ways.
Inspired by the Old Testament story of Noah and the Ark, and driven to give back to the Earth, the world’s first prototype building featuring the concept of ‘natural thermal stabilization’ was built in the heart of the South Moravian Region.
Today’s modern commercial buildings require high performance building materials to optimize functionality and energy efficiency. When compared to traditional alternatives available in the market, such as rigid foam board, spray foam insulation is a modern approach to continuous insulation that allows architects to push the envelope in design and creativity.
The use of closed cell density spray foam insulation vs. rigid foam board in exterior continuous insulation applications provides architectural firms and commercial building contractors a great opportunity to positively impact their building schedules, budget and overall performance quality.
Energy codes are requiring higher thermal performance values in walls, particularly in the form of exterior continuous insulation. Icynene's new white paper focuses on comparing rigid foam board to spray foam insulation.
