EduFoam sprayed insulation provides the ideal solution to insulate and prevent condensation in narrow boats, wide beam boats, dutch barges, cruisers and virtually any other form of marine craft. Eliminates risk of condensation -- EduFoam insulation has excellent thermal insulation values, a very high resistance to water vapour and when installed leaves no thermal bridges in the structure, all meaning that condensation is prevented from forming and damaging internal boarding or fixtures. When building or renovating narrowboats, one of the major factors when thinking of insulation is the depth required to achieve a comfortable level.
Every installation is carried out by trained and experienced contractors using our specialised material, as every job will vary we leave it to the contractors to provide prices for supply and installation.
Polyurethane spray foam is manufactured to BS476 Part 7 Class 1 with regard to surface spread of flame. The first step in the construction is to create the basic hull shape with steel mesh normally used in the construcion industry. With over 15 years experience in all aspects of roofing Foam Insulations is the right choice for you! Both these properties have fiberglass insulation however the property on the left has had the Foam Insulations System installed.


When building or fully renovating a narrow boat, one of the most important factors to consider is the insulation.
As the space is limited within narrow boats, generally people are looking to install as little depth as possible of insulation to reach the levels of internal comfort they require. If you would like to speak to one of our recommended contractors, who can normally provide ideas on price over the phone, please feel free to call us on 0161 876 8040 or click here to contact us directly and we will provide details of trained, recommended contractors in your area.
It provides the ideal solution to insulate, stabilise and control condensation in any boat.
This method of construction can be used for most kinds of hull construction, including hard chine and radius chine.
Because the heat has not escaped, the snow on the roof has not melted and the loft space is warm, dry and clean. As a narrow boat’s life is generally spent sat in relatively cold water, and the boat occupants more often than not want to feel warm and comfortable inside the boat, insulation plays a key part in the overall function not only of keeping the boat warm but also preventing any condensation forming on the colder steel hull.
Being applied as a liquid also allows the foam to get into any voids and behind any gaps in battening, this drastically reduces any thermal bridging and prevents any condensation from forming.


EduFoam insulation provides around twice the insulation levels of mineral wool insulation, and is also applied with no fixings to reduce depth further, so the same insulation levels can be achieved with around half the depth. It’s the most effective form of loft insulation available due to its 90% closed cell construction and it’s far more efficient than fibreglass. On a typical narrow boat build, where 1 inch battens are installed to the surface, comfortable levels of insulation can be achieved with only around 1 inch of EduFoam insulation. This means that you will have a warmer, more comfortable home and most importantly save money on your heating bills.
This also allows the builder or renovator to achieve the insulation they are looking for, whilst also keeping it behind the face of the battens and delivering valuable space savings.
