A combination of high performance insulated roof and wall panels with Polycarb Rooflights from market leaders Kingspan Insulated Panels have been used to give a new lease of life to a number of industrial units on Dragon Ville Industrial Estate, Durham.
David Tilley Managing Director of MITIE Tilley Roofing Limited, and owner of the multi-let industrial units specified and installed the Kingspan KS1000 RW Trapezoidal roof and wall panels in Kingspan XL Forte Goosewing Grey to replace the existing built-up system and also added Kingspan Polycarb Rooflights to the mix.
David commented The existing units with their 1980s profiled steel roofs and plasterboard linings were looking tired and dated, and had very limited insulation value. We refurbished them with Kingspan panels on the walls and roofs and now they look and feel like new units making then more attractive to new and existing tenants.
We have used Kingspan products for years and had no doubt about the quality of the products and the ease of which they could be installed.
Kingspan KS1000 RW Trapezoidal insulated roof and wall panels are through fixed systems which provide simple and fast site installation with options of valley or crown fixings using matching colour headed fasteners. The systems provide reliable thermal and air leakage performance, greatly improving the energy efficiency of the units as well as lifting their appearance.
The panels are certified to BRE Green Guide Specification A+; have an ECOsafe insulation core containing no CFCs or HCFCs with a low Global Warming Potential (GWP) and provide long term lifecycle durability. They are available in FIREsafe LPCB insurer-approved form for assured fire performance. Longevity is assured and backed with the Kingspan Total Guarantee, offering up to 25 years thermal and structural performance protection.
Kingspan Polycarb Rooflights have been developed specifically to complement the Kingspan KS1000 RW and KS2000 RW range of insulated roofing systems. They are lightweight and offer a u-value of 1.6 W/m2K and are available in lengths from 1.8m up to 6.44m.
Kingspan Insulated Panels produces both standard and tailormade designs including ancillary components such as pre-formed corner/curved panel units, gutter systems, flashings, as well as fall protection systems such as Kingspan Saferidge and Safetraxx.
