Grand Designs Container
WALLTITE® spray foam insulation has been used to provide wall and roof insulation to a house built from shipping containers as featured on TV’s Grand Designs. Described by presenter Kevin McCloud as the “right solution”, WALLTITE® spray foam was the only practical way to provide an airtight insulation envelope to Architect Patrick Bradley’s home and was used to insulate both the walls and roof areas. WALLTITE® spray foam is a high density spray applied insulation installed by trained and accredited contractors.
The foam insulation followed the contours of the metal containers that formed the basis of the construction. Gary applied 125mm of WALLTITE® spray foam to achieve airtight U-Value of 0.20 W/m2k. Patrick Bradley’s house has since won 2 RIBA awards (Royal Institute of British Architects).
BASF WALLTITE® is BBA certified and is available in both spray and injection formulations by Bright Home Renewables Insulation.
