Fire Barrier Coatings

No one wants to think about a house or building fire. Everyone needs to think of ways to protect their home and business and Airtight Foam Insulation Contractors are here to help.

All polyurethane spray foams require a code approved fire barrier. There are two types of spray foam insulation and the type you use will dictate what fire prevention measures you will need to take.

Airtight Foam Insulation Contractors are here to make sure you and your family are safer by providing thermal barrier and ignition barrier coatings to your spray foam insulation Tulsa OK.


Thermal barrier & ignition barrier coatings 

Thermal barriers are designed to make it more difficult for a fire inside the living space to gain access to the source of fuel in the spray foam leaving the home’s occupants with more time to escape. Spray foam can be protected with an intumescent coating, which is applied on top of the foam and bubbles up when exposed to heat forming a flame-resistant barrier. Call Air Tight Foam Insulation Contractors for this kind of protection for your home and business.

Ignition barriers are required in foam-insulated attics, crawlspaces, and other areas that can't be used as living space and have limited access.  They offer a lower order of protection and are intended simply to prevent a possible flame source from making direct contact with the foam. Ignition barriers must earn code approval on a case-by-case basis by passing a burn test—ACC 377, appendix X, also known as the modified NFPA 286 test administered by the ICC-ES. All spray-foam manufacturers now offer products that qualify for Tulsa attic insulation or crawlspace use when combined with an appropriate coating material.
