Icynene Profiles International Spray Foam Application with Acoustical Benefits
A Northern Ireland film studio used spray foam insulation to improve its building acoustics.
MISSISSAGUA, ON–September 4, 2012–Spray foam insulation delivers several cost-effective benefits to commercial and residential property owners, typically helping them reduce monthly heating and cooling expenses. However, the solution also enables businesses and homeowners to improve their buildings' acoustics, an added benefit that usually follows an application by trained and certified spray foam insulation specialists.
The Linen Mill Film and Television Studios in Northern Ireland's Bann Valley recently contacted spray foam insulation experts to apply the solution throughout their 32-acre site. Take a look at the following to see how these studios benefited from spray foam insulation.
Originally, the studio was a linen bleach-washing factory, so converting them for film production use required research and consultation into which materials were suitable for the space. Before the spray foam insulation application, studio professionals noticed airborne sound from traffic and airplanes at nearby airports. Additionally, they wanted to find ways to prevent condensation from occurring on the underside of the roof during filming, while also finding an insulation that could provide thermal comfort.
Spray foam insulation was a suitable solution because it could be applied to surfaces throughout the converted studios. The application was completed with a two-day period and helped improve the properties' sound acoustics. This solution also has the potential to cut costs for the studio owners, and may help property owners save up to 50 percent on their monthly heating and cooling expenses.
While spray foam insulation provides immediate benefits, it may offer long-term advantages over other types of insulation. It will immediately expand up to 100 times its volume in seconds when it is sprayed onto surfaces. The air barriers it creates can help reduce the dangers of respiratory distress, minimize pollutants and protect properties against mold growth from condensation and moisture.
This 100% water-blown insulation is safe to apply anywhere, providing an ideal choice for businesses and homeowners. Fiberglass and similar kinds of insulation may require periodic maintenance, but spray foam insulation delivers proven results for the life of a property.
Icynene professionals can typically apply the insulation to surfaces including ceilings, floors and walls, creating an effective seal that minimizes airborne sound from traveling between rooms. This can prove useful in buildings near high-traffic areas such as airports.
With Icynene, dangers of energy waste and respiratory issues are reduced, as this spray foam insulation allows you to feel a difference every day–in your home and in your pocketbook.
