Insulate It.

 

 

VISION House Los Angeles will be using a spray foam spider insulation system.  This system will be donated by Johns Manville.  Spray polyurethane foam (SPF) is an insulation that provides superior performance and advanced energy efficiency.

The spray combines two liquid components at installation creating cellular spray foam that expands and fully adheres to surfaces. The spray foam offers superior insulating properties and effective air isolation. 

In addition, JM Spider® insulation resists mold because it sprays in almost dry (less moisture content than wood framing), and is treated with a U.S. EPA-registered mold inhibitor to protect the insulation against mold. 

By using JM Spider Insulation, the VISION House Los Angeles is expected to have lower energy bills, better indoor air quality, a control on moisture, a healthy home environment, superior sound control, and environmental satisfaction with at least 25% recycled content. -SH
