With the ever-increasing stringencies on thermal performance of the building fabric, building and design professionals are looking hard for solutions.

In December 2009 Air-Cell Insulation was acquired by Kingspan Insulation, manufacturer of rigid, high performance insulation.

At DesignBUILD in Melbourne (23 – 25 June), Kingspan Insulation will showcase both its Air-Cell and Kooltherm range of products in delivering innovative insulation alternatives to conventional bulk fibre insulation.

A number of unique, high performance thermal solutions will be on display at DesignBUILD. The thermal solutions will to help achieve 6 Star Energy Ratings and compliance with BCA 2010 and beyond.

Mr. Scott Gibson, Kingspan Insulation Managing Director explained that innovation was critical in achieving greater levels of thermal efficiency.

“As energy efficiency standards continue to rise, building professionals will need new solutions to help further reduce the carbon footprints of new and existing buildings; and that’ll mean innovating their designs and looking at new and different insulation combinations as part of the building fabric.”

The Kingspan Kooltherm range of insulation systems is a super high performance, fibre-free rigid insulation core sandwiched between composite facings that vary depending on the specific product and application. Kingspan Insulation products are manufactured without using CFCs/HCFCs and have zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP).

Flexible and versatile, the Air-Cell and Kooltherm range of insulation systems have products suited for any roof, wall and underfloor application with unique solutions for both new and existing residential and commercial buildings, including BCA Section J compliance.
