Insulating a garage door: foam insulation that's firesafe


Posted by John Monagin on March 13th, 2002 07:35 PM

Searching the Internet, unable to find clear information
on toxic smoke hazards of rigid foam boards, but best
appears to be polyethylene, but can't find a U.S. supplier.
Best I could find was an Australian company at www.
thermotec.com, the Thermotec company. My search engines
gave me mostly suppliers of polystyrene, not poly-
ethylene. Can anyone help? Apparently the PE board also
offers little emissions of HFCs, so it is environmentally
better than some other boards. I want to insulate the
garage door with something light in weight, easy to apply,
and relatively benign if overheated.
