Genyk Position Statement
Sustainable and Renewable Products
Genyk is, and will continue to be, constantly looking for innovative methods of using less energy, conserving natural resources, and promoting the use of recycled product.
Our manufacturing plant, located in Shawinigan, QC, has installed an industry-leading, industry-only, water re-capture system. The water used in some of our polyurethane products is 100% captured rainwater. In some regions, Genyk has introduced a drum return program to ensure the safe management of waste materials and the surety of recycled packaging.
Genyk is constantly challenging ourselves to be environmentally responsible – it is an enduring goal.
Genyk Air Barrier System
There is a significant difference between installing spray foam to a rain screen application and installing a CCMC certified Air Barrier System. The GENYK Air Barrier System is a comprehensive program aimed at improving the understanding, application and verification of air barrier system applications that use spray polyurethane foam (SPF). The GENYK program centres on two fundamental principles- education and verification. To become a licenced GENYK Air Barrier System Installer, an applicant must satisfactorily complete both the classroom and field training components of the program.
But the demands of the Genyk Air Barrier System do not end with certification. Certified installers must perform daily testing on membrane adhesion, spray foam adhesion and spray foam density. The daily testing must be documented, and as a level of confidence for the Design Professional, the documentation must be made available upon request. Further, all Genyk Air Barrier System applications are subject to regular manufacturer inspections. Finally, Genyk requires third-party testing by UFC based on the size of the project. Again, the test results are documented and available to the Design Professional.
Cumulatively, any installation of the Genyk Air Barrier System comes with the promise of certified installers and three levels of quality verification. Genyk is so confident in our certified Air Barrier System that each application comes with a five-year warranty.
