  • (1888PressRelease) May 05, 2011 - Coastal hosted a successful Air Barrier Association of America (ABAA) spray polyurethane foam installer training course on March 29 - 31, 2011.

    There were two classes offered: Sprayed Polyurethane Foam Installer Certification Challenge Program, and a Quality Assurance Program Administrator Course.

    The installer certification program combined theory with hands-on, practical instruction, in order to provide participants with the required skills to correctly install an air barrier assembly. When the course is complete, an installer should be able to: read and understand plans and specifications; select the proper material for the application; determine the proper substrate conditions; demonstrate proper application of the material; ensure the compatibility of components, and continuity over joints and junctions; undertake the required testing; accurately complete documentation; and complete the installation in a safe manner.

    The quality assurance course gives participants an introduction to air barriers; materials vs. systems; building code requirements; site installation realities and installer testing requirements. The program also delivers an overview of the ABAA Quality Assurance Program, contractor and installer obligations, and project reporting and documentation.

    "We are grateful to Coastal for lending us their facility" said Darren Newhook, who oversaw the program. "We're excited to increase the number of ABAA certified installers through these trainings."

    Coastal hosted these trainings because of our office's convenient location, proximity to major roadways, and our state-of-the-art facility, which allows sufficient space to accommodate all participants and activities.
