Staycell ONE STEP® Spray Polyurethane Foam Systems Eliminate Need for 15-minute Thermal Barriers for Most Applications
PSI’s Staycell ONE STEP® Systems help contractors expand business and increase profit while improving spray foam application quality and safety

CLEVELAND, OH - January 28, 2011 – Preferred Solutions, Inc.’s Staycell ONE STEP® Spray Foam Systems create numerous opportunities for contractors to grow their business and improve profitability.

Staycell ONE STEP® Spray Foam Systems have passed the demanding UL1715 enclosed room fire test. According to Preferred Solutions, Inc., the manufacturer of these revolutionary foam systems, these are the first and only closed-cell spray foam insulation systems that meet the code and fire safety requirements of the International Building Code (IBC) and International Residential Code (IRC) when left exposed in occupied and unoccupied spaces without thermal or ignition barriers in most applications.

Jack Stahl, Vice President of Preferred Solutions, tells us, “Contractors are always looking to improve their competitiveness and Staycell ONE STEP® Spray Foam Systems help toward that end. Spray foam is the logical choice to insulate homes and buildings but the number one obstacle, in my opinion, is cost. By eliminating the material, labor and equipment to install thermal and ignition barriers contractors enjoy a lower cost base, which improves their ability to close more business.”
