A Trapezoidal roof and Micro-Rib and Flat panels from Kingspan Insulated Panels were specified for the new headquarters and manufacturing hub of AST Signs, one of the UK’s leading branding companies.

Located at Penrith in Cumbria, The Box is an ultra-modern, purpose-built manufacturing hub for AST Signs. Spread across 21,000 square feet of floor space, the building sits in the heart of the British countryside and features significant sustainability measures.

Following the completion of the project in 2014, AST Signs has been able to centralise operations and support increased business efficiency.

The design brief sought a sustainable building to be created for AST Signs; therefore, it was imperative for the chosen products to meet the utmost energy efficiency requirements. Kingspan’s Trapezoidal roof, Micro-Rib and Flat panels incorporated into this project all achieve an A+ BREEAM rating, significantly reducing building running costs and creating a sustainable space for AST Signs.

Kingspan’s approved FIREsafe panels offer complete building protection, and are available with a Kingspan Ultimate Panel Guarantee.

The Trapezoidal roof and Micro-Rib panels installed in this project are LPCB and FM approved.
