Kingspan

Kingspan Insulation is one of the world’s most well-known and trusted manufacturers of insulation boards. They offer floor insulation, cavity wall insulation, wall insulation and roof insulation for residential buildings. Kingspan has a wide range of different boards that they have specially designed so that you can have the best board for the application. Depending on the use of the Kingspan insulation board, it will either be covered with foil, glass tissue, or a bitumen finish.

A popular range from Kingspan insulation is the Kingspan Kooltherm, as it allows the use of a thinner board without interfering with the U-value. It is made from a fibre-free, rigid thermoset phenolic core and will give a higher thermal resistance than standard PIR insulation at 0.018 - 0.023 W/mK. Kooltherm insulation is used on residential buildings, oil rigs, hospitals, industrial buildings, and many other building types due to its great fire resistance.

The K5 range, for example, is covered with tissue-based facing that is bonded to the insulation core, and is designed for external wall applications, as it allows you to render plaster over the material. Kingspan Kooltherm Cavity Closer is a uPVC extrusion with premium performance, fibre-free, rigid thermoset phenolic core that provides a simple and efficient method of closing cavities around openings in masonry cavity walls.

KINGSPAN INSULATION GUIDE

A bit of history first...

The global manufacturing company Kingspan was created in the 1960s by Eugene Murtagh from Co.Cavan, in Ireland. Back then the company was making wheelbarrows. But soon, its founder Eugene spotted an opportunity in composite roof panels and began manufacturing Insulated Roof Panels and Rigid Insulation.

Fast forward to 1989 and Kingspan began floating in the Irish stock exchange for £20m Irish pound. Since then, Kingpsan has kept on growing and to this day, it continues its drive in Europe and in the UK, so much so that even the fall out of the 2008 crisis was quickly put behind, and in 2010 Kingpsan's sales were growing again for the first time in 3 years.

It is a well respected company that has developed a unique expertise in its field, along with countless different forms of Polyiso insulation board over the years. With such a wide array of products, it would be impossible to review each and everyone of them, keeping that in mind, we will list a few of them and their respective applications.

What is Kingspan Insulation?

As one of the world's most well-known and trusted manufacturers of insulation, with popular product ranges like Kooltherm, Therma and a variety of different insulation boards, Kingspan has you covered with high quality insulation boards regardless of the application.

What is Kingspan Kooltherm used for?

The Kooltherm insulation K-range is the most commonly used Kingspan insulation in the construction industry, one of the main reasons for this is that it gives the option to pick a thinner board without interfering with the u value. Made from a fibre-free rigid thermoset phenolic core, this insulation will give you a thermal resistance from 0.018 - 0.023 W/m·K. And with a wide variety of thicknesses available across multiple applications, it’s no wonder the Kingspan Kooltherm is leading the way in the rigid insulation market.

Due to its strong thermal resistance, Kingspan Kooltherm's range offers a higher resistance than your standard PIR insulation. As a result there is a premium associated with the cost as Kooltherm insulation products are about 30% more expensive while increasing the thermal resistance by 10%. Still, it is a very popular choice with both architects and builders when it comes to choosing insulation.

You see this product mostly in commercial buildings. Every square meter gained is money in the bank and Kingspan Kooltherm gives this option. On top of that, you will also find this product being used on oil rigs, hospitals, industrial buildings and many more industrial buildings, as it offers better fire properties than most standard PIR.

Is Kingspan good for sound insulation?

Due to its popularity with builders and contractors, a common assumption made by many people is that Kingspan insulation can be used as a sound proof or acoustic product. Unfortunately these PIR and Phenolic insulation have little to no sound or acoustic values and in fact can contribute to noise pollution if they are not correctly fitted. If you are looking for sound insulation you can visit our acoustic insulation options here.

Benefits of Installing Kingspan Insulation

High Compressive Strength

Advanced thermal performance

Resistance to Moisture

Environmentally Friendly

Great fire resistance

What is a U-value?

A U-value is a sum of the thermal resistance of the layers that make up an entire building element. For example, a roof, wall or floor. It also includes fixings for any air gaps. U-value value shows, in units of W/m²·K, the ability of an element to transmit heat from a warm space to a cold space in a building, and vice versa. The lower the U-value, the better insulated the building element.

How is Kingspan made?

The short answer is Phenolic Foam, also called PIR foam. Without getting too Latin on you, it is a polyisocyanurate compound with a polyethylene core that is used as the core of an insulated panel. The process involves pouring the Phenolic liquid and allowing it to set, afterward the foam rigid board is covered with either foil, glass tissue or a bitumen finish depending on the application it is made for. Kingspan’s has a quick and easy guide on this subject covering different types of insulation including Phenolic and PIR.

Kingspan Kooltherm Cavity Closer is a uPVC extrusion with a premium performance fibre-free rigid thermoset phenolic core, for use in England and Wales only.
It provides a simple and efficient method of closing cavities around openings in masonry cavity walls, and has a thermal conductivity of 0.021 W/mK.

How long is Kingspan making insulation?

Kingspan has been manufacturing insulation for almost 50 years. They have gone a long way since the wheelbarrows days of the swinging irish 60’s. The remarkable success story behind Kingspan is closely linked to the Murtagh family, who as true entrepreneurs, drove Kingspan to heights they originally never dreamed of. They know what works, and what does not work in the insulation and construction industry. Nowadays, their premium performance products for floors, walls and roofs, are a testimony to their savoir-faire.

Kingspan thermapitch insulation board is a high performance rigid thermoset board with low thermal conductivity. This board is unaffected by air infiltration and water resistant. The board is easy to handle and is ideal for new builds and refurbishment work.
