A new mixed-use development located in the highly desirable London Fields area of the capital is the latest project to benefit from the optimum thermal performance of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System.
Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System was specified for the project as the developer needed a slim-line insulation product which would allow them to achieve a compliant U-value for the terrace without exceeding the internal floor height.
By utilising vacuum technology, Kingspan OPTIM-R panels can achieve the required thermal performance at a fraction of the thickness of traditional insulation. 40mm thick panels were specified along with Kingspan OPTIM-R Flex Infill strips of the same thickness. These were cut to fit around penetrations as required. A further thickness of Kingspan Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM was then used as an overlay with a vapour control layer and the final paving fitted above.
As with all Kingspan OPTIM-R projects, Kingspan’s specialist technical team provided detailed layouts for the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System, ensuring the required performance was met with an absolute minimum build-up. In addition, all Kingspan OPTIM-R Systems hold LABC System Approval, helping to streamline the Building Control checking and approvals process.
