FIREPROOF INSULATION & FIREPROOFING SERVICES
Insulation provides means to regulate the temperature of any building. One of the most effective types of insulation is spray foam. As beneficial as spray foam is there is something to consider, it poses a strong potential fire hazard. With the rapid increase in popularity of polyurethane foam, fireproofing has risen with it. By law, you are required to cover over any exposed polyurethane foam with a thermal barrier whether that be drywall, fire retardant paint, etc.
HOW DOES A FIREPROOF COATING WORK?
At Reitzel Insulation we can utilize a fire retardant spray coating to cover bare insulation instead of structural solutions like drywall. This solution makes your insulation both resistant to fire and much more aesthetically pleasing. When the coating is exposed to fire, it bubbles and swells to protect the surface it is applied to. This product can only be used in crawl spaces, attics and exposed open wall areas that are not accessible or used as storage.
Just like all our other insulation services, we provide a rigorous clean-up process to ensure that the job site is returned to its original state.
