Air Barrier Systems

In a new, renovated or retro-fitted commercial building, it’s essential that the airflow between a conditioned space and an unconditioned space is controlled. This is where an air barrier system comes into play. Air barriers are systems of materials designed in such a way as to allow for control in this type of environment. Because air exchange in an out of a building is one of the leading causes of high energy bills, air barrier systems are integral to any structure’s overall insulation system, as they improve indoor air quality and maintain energy efficiency.

Air barrier systems should:

  • Be impenetrable to air
  • Be continuous over an entire building enclosure
  • Withstand the forces that may act on them during and after construction
  • Be durable over the expected lifespan of a building

At Yvon Insulation, we guarantee that our air barrier systems will increase and enhance the role that insulation plays in your commercial structure. Our high quality air barrier systems are applied as a spray foam, which gets into difficult to access areas, and adheres to many different types of surfaces. In addition to spray foam, Yvon Insulation also offers rigid air barrier systems constructed from materials such as gypsum board, plywood, OSB and sheet polyethylene. Whether it’s an indoor or outdoor project will determine which type of air barrier system material should be used. So for all your Toronto, Rexdale, North York, Scarborough or Etobicoke air barrier system needs, call us today!
