Kingspan Insulated panels are a relatively new product to the New Zealand market but they are certainly getting the ‘thumbs up’ from builders, designers and architects.

These insulated  roofing and wall panels offer a one step, superior cladding solution particularly for commercial buildings.  They provide lightweight, durable insulation that lowers the energy demands of buildings. As the panels come pre-fabricated they are very fast and cost effective to install compared to other traditional methods.

A rigid Polyisocyanurate (PIR) insulation core sandwiched between two layers of metal results in a lightweight, singular component unlike the conventional multi-part construction systems. Being so much lighter in weight than traditional solutions,  different piling and foundations may be used that could save you time and money.

It is easy to see why architects are specifying Kingspan insulated panels more often as they provide greater choice to create aesthetically pleasing, energy-efficient buildings. The structural performance is outstanding and the modern smooth look is very visually appealingly.

The panels come in a range of lengths, colours and finishes, and are suitable to be used both vertically and horizontally, as well as being suitable for a wide range of different pitched roofs.
As they are suitable for temperature controlled areas, they are ideal for environments such as cold storage. So much energy is lost through air leakage and these insulated panels offer significant energy savings by being reliably airtight.
