the benefits

Learn more about the wide range of benefits of our spray form insulation can have for your home or building efficiency, cost saving and improving your carbon footprint.

how it's done

HBS spray foam expands up to 100 times its original size after the initial spray, which then hardens to fill every corner.

our work

We have supplied spray form insulation to thousands of residential and commercial properties across the Northwest and beyond. We love showcasing our work and educating you on how we operate.

What are the key benefits of Spray Foam Insulation?

Cost saving

Due to the nature of Icynene products, the foam, once applied, creates an air seal within a property, helping to prevent heat loss. This will reduce the amount of heat needed to fill the building, in turn saving money year after year.

Reduced noise

Icynene products deliver high levels of sound insulation from inside and outside a property by virtually eliminating airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise. It is especially effective for those properties situated on a busy road to help eliminate traffic noise and can make huge positive differences to living spaces prone to external noise.

Lower carbon footprint

As Icynene helps to reduce heat loss from a property, much less energy is needed to help keep a comfortable temperature throughout, thereby reducing a property’s carbon footprint on the environment.

Protection from damp, mould and pests

Icynene open cell spray foam is engineered in such a way that it does not retain water; instead it allows water vapour to diffuse through the insulation and dissipate from the building’s envelope, keeping out moisture from the internal structure which is a big cause of damp and mould. It is also breathable, which helps to prevent condensation. It also helps to deter pests such as mice, rats, termites, mites from entering a property, as once the product solidifies, these pests will find it difficult to gain entry or make nests.

Speed and accuracy of insulation

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation offer a variety of products for different applications, depending on the project’s needs. Each has its own unique characteristics, but can all be installed quickly and effectively, more so than traditional insulation methods, meaning minimum downtime for any business.

Safe and certified

Icynene is non-toxic and is certified by the BBA, ETA and IAB.

Healthier environment

Airborne pollutants, including dirt and dust, are often the trigger of allergies and can contribute to lower air quality. Icynene will help to shield property from such aggravators, as the foam will expand to create an internal seal, improving the quality of the air in the property, helping to alleviate common causes of irritation.

25 year manufacturer's warranty

Green Horizon Energy Solutions is one of only a handful of fully accredited, official contractors of Icynene in the UK, meaning all of our technicians are fully licensed installers. As such, we are able to offer as standard a 25-year warranty on the product for all installs.

No draughts

Air leakage can be responsible for up to half of a property’s energy loss. The air-seal created by applying Icynene to the internal structure of a building means no gaps exist from which a draught can appear; this helps maintain a more consistent internal temperature, minimises heat loss and reduces waste, creating an efficient and comfortable living or working space.

Got a question?

HBS spray foam insulation is an insulation and air barrier material that seals walls, floors and roofs against air conditioning and movement, including spaces around electrical outlets and light fixtures and where walls meet windows and doors. HBS spray foam insulation can provide an effective air barrier insulation to minimize air infiltration through walls and ceilings, preventing drafts, cold spots and energy loss. The performance of HBS spray foam insulation means that humid indoor/outdoor air is restricted from entering the walls & ceilings and condensing, thereby minimizing the possibility of moisture entrapment & build-up within the wall & ceiling cavities. This is conducive to preventing building envelope failure due to moisture damage.

HBS spray foam insulation products are installed by extensively trained and licensed HBS contractors only.

HBS can maintain its installed U-values throughout its service life, contrary to air-permeable insulation types that lose their thermal performance over time due to the deterioration in the insulation quality (compromised &/or shrinking) and ongoing convective current loops within the insulation (up to 50% loss).

Typically, buildings expand and contract due to temperature differentials, moisture content, wind load and seismic, etc. Closed-cell insulation cannot accommodate the movement of the building. Open-cell spray foam:

Provides air sealing benefits in many applications at a lower cost.

Vapor permeability supports bi-directional drying of assemblies – critical in warm climate zones/seasons.

Flexibility allows it to expand and contract with any movement of the building structure ensuring long term air sealing.

For builders, HBS spray foam insulation can reduce construction time.

For homeowners, HBS spray foam insulation offers the opportunity of lower heating and cooling costs from reduced air infiltration and a more comfortable home, draft-free without cold spots. Furthermore, HBS continuous air barrier capability will significantly reduce unwanted airborne noise from the outside resulting in a quieter interior living space.

Most HBS spray foam products do not contain environmentally harmful blowing agents like HFCs, HCFCs or HFAs, in fact most HBS spray foam insulation products are 100% water-blown making them better for the environment. Organic chemical compounds from petroleum extract are the main source of its ingredients.

No. However, water can work its way through the foam under pressure or by gravity force. When the foam is placed on the water it will float and upon removal, it will not contain any water and it does not lose any of its insulating properties. But, if it is immersed underwater, water can be forced into the foam by the hydrostatic pressure; however, once it is removed from the water and allowed to dry out, the original insulating properties will return.

HBS open-cell spray foam insulation products are vapor permeable to allow water vapor molecules to flow through the foam. This means any moisture in the building’s concrete or lumber can escape through the insulation as the building dries out, thus eliminating moisture that could cause rot or mold.

The cost of Icynene spray foam insulation varies on the type and size of the job, typically prices are from £20 up to £45 per m2, you will always receive a free no-obligation quote before making your final decision.

HBS spray foam products are chemically inert meaning they will not change chemically or physically over time.

HBS spray foams are considered to be an environmentally preferred product due to their air sealing qualities which contribute to improved indoor air quality, reductions in energy consumption as well as greenhouse gas emissions. HBS is listed on the industry-recognized energy saving trust website.

Complete details of all Icynene spray foam insulation products can be found in each product’s Technical Data Sheet.

HBS foam insulation is installed by fully trained, licensed HBS contractors who spray the solution into open building envelope such as studded walls, ceilings and floors. The solution can be safely sprayed directly onto electrical and plumbing.

In each case, a fully trained, licensed HBS contractor must install the product. HBS foam insulation products are not Do-It-Yourself (DIY) products.

HBS spray foam insulation has been available since 1986. It has been used in excess of 350,000 buildings across North America. It is available in over 30 countries on four continents worldwide. It has been featured numerous times on television programs such as 'This Old House' and 'Your New House' and Chanel Four's 'Grand Designs' in the United Kingdom.
