Walltite solves University refurbishment problem

Walltite Polyurethane spray foam insulation system
Walltite Polyurethane spray foam insulation system has been used to significantly improve the U-values of the existing pitched roof for a refurbishment project at the University of Wolverhampton.
Total Insulations carried out the work using 145mm of Walltite CL 100 spray applied polyurethane foam insulation to achieve the specified U-value requirement of 0.16W/mK.
Various issues had to be considered, particularly with reference to minimising the levels of condensation within the roof space.
Walltite CL 100 spray applied polyurethane foam insulation was able to meet the architect's specification by exceeding the condensation risk requirements as the cold surface area is now sufficiently insulated.
Tweedale, the architects for the refurbishment project, ideally required a solution that would avoid any external access to the roof.
Andrew Hall, the architect leading the project explains: 'Access was a main factor for this project as the refurbishment work had to be carried out on a three story building.
The Walltite CL 100 spray applied polyurethane foam insulation enabled the work to be carried out internally without the workers having to access the roof'.
Andrew continues: 'The Walltite Polyurethane spray foam insulation system enabled us to save on the cost and time of the refurbishment process.
A speedy and simple operation was a crucial factor for this project as the academic rooms needed to be completed in time for the return of staff and students following the summer break'.
The refurbishment project delivered academic staff offices, meeting rooms and research areas.
The refurbishment has created a far more comfortable environment and greatly improved the energy efficiency of the space.
WALLTITE spray foam insulation has been used to treat the living and working Cabooses for Sir Ranulph Fiennes latest Antarctic expedition.
The construction of temporary hotel accommodation produced by Elements Europe features Walltite spray foam insulation.
Walltite is a spray applied polyurethane foam insulation that is quick to apply, creating a seamless and joint free finish with tough air tight insulation solution even in hard to reach areas.
Walltite spray foam insulation system will be showcased at Ecobuild as part of the BASF stand.
