As Scotland's specialists in spray foam insulation, we are dedicated to making your spaces safer, warmer and more cost efficient.
We’re also one of the few specialists in spray foam insulation that are licensed to install high-performance Icynene formulas. This is a state of the art insulation material that not only saves you time and money but adds structural stability, protection and value to your property.
ScotFoam was founded by Barry Masterton and Barry Gilchrist. With over 25 years combined service in the Scottish Fire and Rescue Service, they identified the need to provide a faster, more efficient and eco-friendly way of insulating and protecting homes, businesses and industrial spaces.
After months of research, they identified Icynene as the solution. This is a set of innovative, fully accredited insulation materials widely used across North America. After thorough consultation, we promptly set up links to partner with them and brought their formulas to the Scottish market.
ScotFoam now have a team of highly qualified sprayers, trained in all aspects of health and safety, site familiarisation and hold current CSCS cards.
Working across the whole of Scotland, ScotFoam now provides high-performance insulation solutions to cover a wide variety of applications. This spans residential, commercial and industrial and the main services offered are thermal insulation, fireproofing and soundproofing.
Icynene is the only foam on the market to have achieved BBA, ETA and IAB certifications. All of our sprayers are fully accredited and our foams are 100% water blown, using no harmful chemicals or aerosols. This makes our Icynene spray foams the most eco-friendly insulation on the market.
Insulation is your properties year-round armour against the elements, preserving the internal temperature and reducing the need for increasingly expensive heating systems.
A critical component of all new builds, insulation is also one of the most important upgrades you can make to an existing property, whether that’s residential, commercial or industrial.
The airtightness of your insulation impacts every other energy-saving improvement you’ll tackle. Traditional insulation methods leave cracks and gaps in between cavities and these can all add up to significant heat loss. Spray foam avoids these problems as it rapidly expands to fill all spaces, leaving no room for air to escape.
We have extensive experience in fireproofing buildings, having previously worked with the fire service in the UK. One of our core products (Icynene Classic Plus “O”) is a class 0 fire rated spray foam insulation that has also achieved a best in class surface spread of flame of class 1 (test range class 1 best to class 4 worst). Utilising a special intumescent coating, Icynene has achieved certification to BS EN 476 Part 6 & 7 in addition to achieving Class 0 in accordance with approved Documents B “Fire Safety” to the Building Regulations 2000.
This allows the application of Icynene Classic Plus “O” to areas and buildings that require a Class 0 fire rated product and Class 1 Surface Spread of flame such as concrete Soffits and floor slabs. It also allows for the foam to be left exposed in many types of residential, commercial, industrial and agricultural buildings without the need for additional fire retardant measures.
A common advantage of our Icynene spray foams is the high levels of sound insulation. By thoroughly filling the spaces within walls, floors and roofs through which sound travels, we’re able to virtually eliminate airborne sounds such as music, telephones, conversations and all mid to high range frequency noise.
We regularly use Icynene foam for applications such as offices, recording studios, spas, doctors surgeries and other environments in which it is important to control sound levels.
It is also proven to reduce mechanical noise in industrial settings and can even help to silence noisy drains and pipes.
