Icynene Classic Max - the industry's most thoroughly fire tested spray foam
Comprehensive testing by Icynene, in collaboration with the International Code Council Evaluation Service (ICC-ES), confirm Icynene Classic Max spray foam insulation in an unvented attic assembly is an economical option for builders and homeowners looking to protect their residential builds.
Icynene collaborated with the ICC-ES and an ICC-ES endorsed fire consultant to conduct a series of full scale attic testing to determine the performance of the spray foam in an unvented attic assembly in a real-life fire scenario. This testing was followed up by computer modelling. Testing has demonstrated that an unvented attic assembly with Icynene Classic Max will smother a fire in less than a minute.
With approximately 10,000 attic fires occurring annually causing an estimated $477 million in damage, Icynene’s proactive approach to full scale attic testing has been commended by experts in the fire industry.
“Icynene’s pioneering research in the area of fire safety has set a new standard for design - Icynene has proven it is possible to produce a design (assembly) that limits the burning duration of a fire, containing the fire in the attic and extinguishing it quickly without fire damage to the structure. The Icynene Classic Max unvented attic is a unique innovation,” said Deg Priest, President of Priest & Associates Consulting.
