We chose products that would deliver the best possible U-Value and air-tightness ratings.
The innovative Sol-Air technology uses the sun's rays to heat the air in the panels, which can then be distributed around the building to supplement heating. This system can help to reduce the heating costs by 20%.
Overall the Kingspan products achieved a 1.8m3/hr/m2 air tightness and they are helping to save £300,000 in running costs for the building.
“All aspects of the project needed to be as environmentally friendly as possible. For example, a building envelope air tightness rate of 2m³/hr/m² was demanded to help reduce heating demands and in practice the Kingspan products helped to make this even better at 1.8m³/hr/m². The company also did their bit to minimise site waste by recycling pallets and plastic packaging.”
“It was vital that we maintained the architect’s design for the building, and that it was finished by a strict deadline. Kingspan readily supplied their materials in non-standard specifications with short lead times, which together with efficient installation were big plus points.”
