The advanced composition of Kingspan Kooltherm lower lambda products ensures architects and builders now have even greater freedom to achieve spectacular designs, with what the company described as inherently outstanding fabric performance, without having to compromise on internal living or working space.
Kooltherm products are manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion potential (ODP) and very low global warming potential (GWP). The insulation boards are non-deleterious, easy to handle and install, and are unaffected by air infiltration.
Jim Loughran, Kingspan commercial director, says: “At Kingspan Insulation we are very passionate about product development and exceeding expectations. We invest heavily in research and development. Our new lower lambda range adds another dimension to our product portfolio, allowing us to offer even higher value products from our already extensive range.”
