Domestic Insulation in PerthAt Tate’s Coating Services we are specialists in is pray foam insulation that will help to keep your home warm in winter and cool in summer. Polyurethane foam insulation is highly effective in reducing the amount of energy used in buildings and reducing CO2 emissions into the environment. It is a very important part of efficient thermal design and an effective way to work towards sustainable living. Our Polyurethane spray foam is flexible, durable, and long lasting. One of the simplest and most cost-efficient ways of improving the energy efficiency of your home is to insulate not just your ceilings but your walls and underfloors too. Spray foam insulation doesn’t take up much space, and can be applied to new or existing homes throughout West Australia. Meeting a more comfortable internal temperature regardless of the weather outside is easier and more efficient when your home is properly insulated. Polyurethane (PU) foam is a premium insulant, and we can bring it to your door.
Spray Foam InsulationDid you know that in one year alone, foam sprayed insulation (FSI) customers reduced CO2 emissions by 549,817mt? Typically, the ideal time to apply spray foam insulation is during the construction phase. However, in most cases our PU can be retrofitted to an existing home. There are several kinds of foam that can be sprayed depending on what is required for your domestic property: Open cell foam is a lower density polyurethane foam that also exhibits great acoustic properties. Closed cell foam is a higher density and almost completely impermeable to air and water. Closed cell polyurethane foam offers your best insulation solution per inch, and is ideal in tight spaces. Closed cell foam can also offer increased structural integrity when installed.
The ‘R’ ValueYou may have heard the term “R Value”, as this is a measure of thermal resistance. However, this only takes into consideration conduction with no inclusion of convection. The ‘R’ value of conventional fibreglass insulation is measured in a perfect environment. When fibre glass insulation is applied to a house, due to airflow and subsequent leakage, the efficiency of the batt is compromised and thus delivers a smaller ‘R’ value than its original form. Polyurethane on the other hand maintains its thermal properties throughout its life and upon application, creates an envelope of the building. This forms a seal and consequently reduces airflow dramatically ensuring that the ‘R’ value is true and permanent. For this reason it is not necessary to spray PU to the same thickness of a traditional batt to achieve the required ‘R’ value.

Further Benefits of Using PU Spray Foam InsulationPU is a product that is environmentally-friendly and a more efficient insulator than most traditional insulation materials. Unlike cellulose or fibre batts, its efficiency or ‘R’ value is not affected by ambient conditions. There are many advantages of using PU in buildings and you may be surprised what benefits it brings, in addition to being a premium insulant. Just some of the key benefits of our high-quality spray insulation include:
- Structural stability
- Durable and long lasting
- Energy efficient properties
- Reduces drafts, dust, and insects
- Repels water and resists mould
- Noise reduction
- Flexible for a range of uses
- Minimal space requirements
