What is Icynene spray foam insulation?

The Icynene insulation system is a series of soft, flexible spray foam products that deliver up to 50% greater energy savings when compared to other insulation products. Icynene is the perfect insulation for suspended floors, roofs, timber kits, dry lining, sound insulation, eradicating condensation and more. When sprayed in place Icynene expands completely filling all cavities and voids creating a sealed building envelope which eliminates air leakage/infiltration. Air leakage/infiltration accounts for up to 50% of heat loss from a building. Unlike other foams, Icynene's unique formulation is 100% water blown and therefore contains no harmful agents, volatile organic chemicals, HCFCs, HFAs, HFCs or formaldehyde. Ideal for wood, steel, brick & metal framed construction, Icynene conforms to unusual geometry and provides a continuous barrier that significantly reduces air leakage, minimising airborne moisture and optimising energy efficiency.

How long has icynene spray foam insulation been on the market?

Icynene Spray Foam Insulation was founded in Canada in 1986 and we are proud to say it's the "World leader in insulation foam expansion". It has been in Ireland for fifteen years and in the UK for over twelve years. Icynene is being installed in 28 different countries with over 425000 homes/buildings benefiting from this first class airtight product. Icynene was also featured on Grand Design, insulating a tree house, with Kevin McCloud giving Icynene his approval.

Why should i use icynene spray foam insulation rather than conventional insulation?

We all know that buildings expand and contract due to environmental conditions like changes in temperature. Traditional insulation materials cannot adapt to this structural movement without air leakage. The flexible nature of Icynene spray foam insulation allows the foam to expand and contract as your building does every year through out the different seasons, maintaining the airtight seal already created.

Where can icynene be used?
  • Attic/Loft Insulation
  • Roof Insulation
  • Wall Insulation
  • Drylining Insulation
  • Suspended Timber Floor Insulation
  • Timber Frame Construction
  • Sound/Acoustic Insulation
  • Commercial / Industrial / Agricultural / Condensation Control Insulation

Susanne Stevenson

The team were an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish.

Each one of them was passionate about what they did and in delivering excellent customer service.

Our main reason for getting icynene insulation in our attic conversion, apart from having a warmer home and saving money, was to ensure our young baby would be warm enough through the night to be moved into his own room.

Despite reading all the wonderful testimonies I was slightly sceptical, not believing such dramatic improvements would be achieved in OUR old house.

I've seen these guys in action. Amazing work and filled every nook and cranny for an air tight sealed home.

JSJ have recently completed a full insulation of a large attic space in my home.

There are 2 things to note working with the company.
First is the Icynene product itself, which having submitted our first gas meter reading since it was fitted we have seen a 43% reduction in our monthly direct debit averaged over the year.

Secondly, and equally as important, it is the standard of service that they provide. It is clear that the company as a whole take great pride in their work and their customer service. I can honestly say that after 2 days you wouldn't have known they had ever been there, apart from the house being significantly warmer!
