Making Tree Houses Safer with Closed Cell Foam

I have fond memories of my treehouse. I spent hours and hours in it, reading books and playing with friends or just staring out into the yard. If you have children, a treehouse can be a wonderful way to get them outside, to encourage them to explore their creativity, and to help them develop important social skills. And hey, if you’re a kid at heart yourself (like me), a treehouse can also provide some much-needed time away from life’s responsibilities! But while I recommend building your own treehouse as soon as possible, there are some important safety considerations that need to be addressed before you start cutting down branches. The good news is that Closed Cell Spray Polyurethane Foam offers an easy solution for most of these concerns. Not only does this product improve the insulation values of your treehouse, but it also gives it better fire protection and acoustical properties.

Treehouses are a great way to get kids outside and active.

Treehouses are a great way to get kids outside and active. Tree houses are a fun and unique way for kids to learn about nature, the environment and even engineering. There are many benefits to treehouses such as increasing creativity and imagination, or learning about engineering or physics.

But treehouses can be dangerous if they’re not built properly.

You’re probably thinking that a treehouse is the safest place to play and relax. Well, you’re right! But treehouses can be dangerous if they’re not built properly.

There are many dangers that can arise from having a treehouse:

  • Falling out of the treehouse. This is usually done by falling off the edge or into one of the sides of your structure while playing around or being too rough with it. This can cause serious injuries or even death if you land on something hard like another person or an object below your height in which case you could crush them with your weight (or vice versa).
  • Falling through gaps between branches caused by overgrowth of vines/leaves/etc.. This is more common than people think since it doesn’t happen often so when it does happen it catches everyone off guard because they were used to seeing only gaps between branches before then–not large openings! If this happens then someone could fall through those spaces and hurt themselves badly depending on how high up they fall from as well as how big their body size is compared against said gap size; therefore making them more likely than others who didn’t fall through such gaps because their bodies don’t fit easily within them (i

Closed Cell Foam is great for insulating, improving the acoustics, and adding fireproofing to treehouses.

As a treehouse builder, I’m always looking for better ways to make my structures safer. One of the most important aspects of safety is insulation. Closed cell foam is a great option for insulating your tree house because it can reduce heat loss, improve acoustics, and provide fireproofing as well.

Some examples of how closed cell foam reduces heat loss:

  • Spray foam insulation does not allow air infiltration or water vapor migration through walls, floors or roofs so there are no gaps for cold winds to blow through. Airtightness makes it harder for warm air from inside the building to escape outside since there aren’t gaps in which it could escape through.
  • Spray foam also creates an effective vapor barrier that prevents moisture from passing through walls or roofs into colder areas where condensation can form on interior surfaces such as windows and glass doors due to temperature difference between inside/outside temperatures (thermal transmittance). This process causes moisture problems like mold growth which increases with every degree above freezing point at which condensation forms within an enclosed space instead of outside where it would evaporate back into its gaseous state quickly enough before harmful effects occur due to prolonged exposure over time.”

It has a much higher R-value than other insulation products.

So, what exactly is an R-value and why does it matter?

The R-value measures the thermal resistance of a material. The higher the R-value, the better your insulation will be at keeping you warm in a cold climate or cool in a hot climate. The inverse of an R-value is called an U-factor (U is for conductivity). Both R-values and U-factors are measured on a scale from 0 to 1; lower numbers are better for both.

It’s water resistant and doesn’t absorb moisture.

Closed cell foam is water resistant, so it will not absorb moisture. It will not rot or decay and does not mold or mildew, meaning that you don’t need to worry about your tree house being damaged by water damage. That’s great news for people who live in rainy climates!

And because it has no fire risk, closed cell foam is a safer option than traditional wood construction methods.

Closed Cell Foam is more durable than blown insulation or cellulose, so it will last longer in your treehouse.

When you’re building a tree house, you probably want to make sure that the structure lasts as long as possible. Closed cell foam is more durable than other insulation products because it’s not as susceptible to damage from water and moisture build up, which can happen when rainwater gets inside the walls of your home. This means that closed cell foam lasts longer and helps keep your heating costs low throughout its lifetime!

You’ve probably heard of foam being used as insulation. Spray polyurethane foam is an excellent choice, especially if you’re building a tree house.

The foam we use for your project will be able to protect the wood from water damage and give it room to breathe so that moisture doesn’t build up inside of the home. If you want to make sure that your tree house is safe from the elements and lasts as long as possible, then this type of insulation is perfect for you! Plus, we can do all of this quickly so that no time goes wasted on waiting around while construction happens—it’s really something special when all parties involved work together with their best interests in mind!

If you’d like more information about how closed cell spray polyurethane foam provides better safety than other types of insulations (such as fiberglass), consider reaching out today! We’d love nothing more than helping out homeowners who want their trees houses built right without sacrificing any quality or functionality along the way.”

Closed Cell Spray Polyurethane Foam is an excellent way to add insulation, acoustics, and fireproofing to your treehouse

Closed Cell Spray Polyurethane Foam is an excellent way to add insulation, acoustics, and fireproofing to your treehouse. Closed cell foam is water resistant which makes it ideal for outdoor use. It provides a tight seal while still allowing moisture out of the wood when the temperature rises above 50 degrees Fahrenheit. This means that if there is any water in your tree house after a rainstorm or heavy dew, it will evaporate quickly instead of being absorbed by the wood and causing rot or fungus growth inside your structure.

This type of foam also resists mold growth unlike open cell spray polyurethane foam which allows moisture to seep into the surface of whatever surface you apply it on since it does not have any waterproof property (closed cell). This can be dangerous for those who are allergic or sensitive because this can lead into severe health complications like asthma attacks and even death if one has severe allergies such as pollen allergies etcetera!


This is a serious safety issue and one that we at Foam Source are happy to help with. Closed Cell Spray Polyurethane Foam is an excellent way to add insulation, acoustics, and fireproofing to your treehouse. Your kids will be safe and sound, and you won’t have to worry about any leaks or drafts ruining their time outside either.
