Kingspan Insulated Panels donated its KS1000 RW trapezoidal roofing system and Kingspan Polycarb Rooflights for the refurbishment of Middle Park Community Centre, Eltham, in association with Children in Need.
The managers of Middle Park Community Centre, Lin and Pat, have been working tirelessly for the past 27 years, over 12-15 hour days to provide a hub for the whole community which offers activities and support for up to 150 children everyday.
However, after all these years the centre was no longer in the best of condition and Children in Need has undertaken the renovation in recognition of the important role the centre plays in the community.
A spokesperson from the BBC said: The roof repairs needed for the centre were of a major concern to the project as the old roof was leaking heavily and the children had been described as dancing around buckets!
It is thanks to companies like Kingspan who have kindly donated materials that enabled us to make a success of this project and provide the community with a safe and enjoyable place to be.
KS1000 RW trapezoidal roofing panels offer high thermal performance with U-values as low as 0.16 W/m2K and low air leakage, making a significant contribution towards achieving excellent energy efficiency. Furthermore, these panels are highly durable and can help to ensure reliable high levels of thermal performances into the long term.
Kingspan Polycarb rooflights offer an efficient way of getting daylight into a building without compromising the strength or thermal performance of the roof and do not discolour over time. They are 100% recyclable, and all off cuts produced in the manufacturing process are recycled.
Kingspan KS1000 RW insulated panels have an ECOsafe insulation core, containing no CFCs or HCFCs with a low Global Warming Potential, achieves an A+ rating according to the Green Guide to Specification and is available in FIREsafe LPCB insurer-approved form for assured fire performance. It is also fibre-free, removing the risk of loose fibres being released into the internal environment. The panels are delivered to site stacked crown up without the need for any additional protective packaging, reducing the waste on site and overall environmental impact.
The roof panels are also covered by the Kingspan Total Guarantee, offering thermal and structural performance guarantee.
