CertainTeed Corporation announce that CertaSpray closed-cell foam insulation has achieved Greenguard Indoor Air Quality and Greenguard Children & Schools certification. It joins the ranks of more than 20 CertainTeed insulation products to be certified.
Both certification programs require products to meet stringent standards in regard to chemical and particle emissions that can compromise healthy indoor air quality.
“Achieving GREENGUARD certification for CertaSpray closed-cell spray foam is demonstrative of CertainTeed’s ongoing commitment to provide its customers with energy-efficient and environmentally sound solutions,” says Howard Deck, President of CertainTeed Insulation. “We are meeting the growing needs of the green building market by providing a single source for a wide variety of GREENGUARD certified insulation products.”
Introduced earlier this year, CertaSpray is a polyurethane foam that is sprayed into a building cavity and quickly expands to fill every opening that can potentially leak air. By reducing air leakage, CertaSpray minimizes hot and cold spots and provides outstanding comfort and indoor air quality by impeding the penetration of moisture and outdoor allergens. The foam results in a hard, rigid consistency that provides superior insulating power and adds structural integrity to walls.
