has always been at the forefront in developing high performing insulation solutions for the construction industry, and is proud now to extend its product range by offering a Vacuum Insulation Panel
(VIP). To be launched at Ecobuild 2012
, the product is aimed at providing solutions to problem areas where space or technical detailing is an issue.
Vacuum Insulation Panels are made from a micro-porous core, which is capable of being evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope. The structure has to be capable of withstanding atmospheric pressure, and of maintaining the vacuum over time. With a typical aged lambda of 0.008 W/m.K, the resulting panels can provide an insulating performance that is up to ten times better than other commonly available insulation materials.
VIPs are becoming increasingly common in Germany and Switzerland – countries that have a history of successfully embracing new methods of achieving very high levels of energy efficiency in buildings. With Kingspan Insulation
adopting this technology it is now easier to design with VIP solutions in the UK, helping to address difficult specification issues and meet energy efficiency requirements.
The new VIP product can be seen on the Kingspan
