Thermal Barrier Installation in Corpus Christi & Surrounding Areas
Thermal barriers are a protective barrier placed between insulating materials like fiberglass insulation or spray foam that prevent temperature rising around the insuconlation and reduce the risk of the insulation igniting in the case of a fire. These barriers can be a range of material but the International Residential Code defines appropriate barriers as 1/2 inch gypsum wallboard or an alternative material that has been tested to withstand heat exposure.
Some building codes require the installation of thermal barriers as a precautionary fire-safety measure. This simple defense exponentially increases the safety of your home. Thermal and ignition barriers are most commonly installed with the use of polyurethane foam insulation.

Does Your Spray Foam Insulation Need a Thermal Barrier?
Spray foam insulation is made from a polyurethane compound to create an easily applied material that is ideal for narrow insulation needs. It is applied wet and as it dries, it expands into a thick foam to fill any space or gap. This method of insulation is absolutely ideal for hard-to-reach places like attics or within wall crevices containing piping and wiring.
Spray foam insulation can benefit a home by:
- Helping to eliminate air leaks
- Helping to increase energy efficiency in your home
- Acting as an effective sound barrier and outside noise reducer
- Optimizing HVAC system performance

While an excellent insulator, polyurethane foam is a combustible organic material. The Spray Polyurethane Foam Alliance recommends that thermal barriers be in place any time spray foam is used in any building installation. Barriers should be installed as soon as possible after the application of spray foam in any building.
