in most properties. By injecting cavity wall insulation into the cavity this provides an insulating barrier and provides stability to the walls, avoiding the expensive job of replacing wall ties. The foam is particularly beneficial in hard- to-treat properties, which are unsuitable for other materials, or for homes at risk of flooding, where other products might not survive.

Winter Is Coming

Now that cold, wintry weather is around the corner, it is only a matter of time before the rate of unnecessary deaths increases as a direct result of cold weather and fuel poverty.

A cold and damp, or draughty home can trigger illness in susceptible people causing a surge in hospital admissions and sometimes death.

The British Urethane Foam Contractors Association (BUFCA), the trade association for the application of sprayed or injected polyurethane foam, urges specifiers to increase the insulation levels

CHSA Golf Tournament

Raises Funds for RNIB The CHSA’s tenth annual Pro-Am Golf Tournament raised £3,900 for the Chairman’s charity, the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB). Combining this with the money already raised at the Gala Ball, the CHSA has now generated an impressive £14,000 for the RNIB this year.

“We’re delighted to have raised so much for our Chairmans’s Charity, the Royal National Institute for Blind People,” said Shaun Chatterton, CHSA Council Member and the driving force behind the golf day. “Our members are always incredibly generous and this year was no exception.”

John Parrott, former Snooker World Champion and team captain on BBC’s Question of Sport took part and then entertained players and guests after dinner with stories


from his years playing and time on the popular TV show.

The evening was hosted by comedian Jed Stone and golfers and non- golfers alike were treated to a spectacular display of golf trickery by Tricky Rob at the beginning of the day.

Shaun continued: “Every year we try to raise the bar with the entertainment laid on for players and their guests. Tricky Rob got the day off to a great start, involving players

in these properties to bring all households out of fuel poverty and in a position where they can reasonably afford to heat their homes.

Households with insulated cavity walls are least likely to be in fuel poverty (6.2 % of households), according to the ‘Annual Fuel Poverty Statistics Report, 2017’, published by the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy. The report also highlights that around 2.5million households in England were living in fuel poverty in 2015, which increased by 0.4% compared to the previous year.

Wall insulation is normally the best way to improve the insulation

Due to the expanding properties of the foam, air leakage, draughts and cold spots are eliminated, providing superior energy-saving insulation and carbon savings.

For roof insulation, spray-applied closed cell polyurethane foam at rafter level provides superior insulation, and this together with the existing 100mm layer of insulation at joist level, brings the thermal performance right up to today’s stringent standards and even avoids the need to ventilate the roof space.

Homes that are well insulated will be far warmer and retain the heat for longer, resulting in lower fuel bills and occupants will be less susceptible to winter-related illness.

Taking place at Oulton Hall, Yorkshire, with the support of the Yorkshire Professional Golfers Association, the annual Pro-Am golf tournament is a popular fixture in the calendar. With a total of 20 teams taking part, six of whom were participating for the first time, the tournament was bigger than ever.

A team from Office Depot, making its debut at the Cleaning & Hygiene Suppliers’ Association’s (CHSA) annual Golf Day, emerged the winner, with teams from Scott Janitorial and Polaris Plastics second and third respectively. The top amateur player on the day was Simon Cooper of Northwood Hygiene.
