Kooltherm K10 PLUS soffit boards from Kingspan Insulation were specified for Crown Towers Perth, Australia’s newest 6-star luxury hotel and casino, for meeting the project’s quality, environmental and compliance objectives.
Designed by YWS Design & Architecture for Brookfield Multiplex to cater to the demands of high-end clientele, Crown Towers Perth is a 500-room property, complete with multiple restaurants and bars, a high-end retail, business and convention centre, and gaming and entertainment areas. Architectural firm Bates Smart was commissioned to design the grand and welcoming interior and public spaces.
Brookfield Multiplex was particular about using only the best products for the project. Superior fittings and furnishing were prioritised, and attention to detail ensured timelessly luxurious interiors.
The decision to specify Kingspan insulation product exemplifies this dedication to quality. Kooltherm K10 Plus soffit board was used extensively throughout the Crown Towers Perth car park. Installed by CeilCon, Kingspan Kooltherm K10 PLUS soffit board was chosen for its superior thermal properties, durability, quality of finish, and Group 1 NCC fire classification for NCC compliance.
Green credentials and product compliance were vital considerations when selecting materials for the project. Additionally, the client wanted a soffit with board pre-adhered, so they could easily paint over and wash the surface.
According to Wayne Gray, Director of CeilCon, Kingspan Insulation products are regularly specified for their superior thermal properties to ensure that a project is compliant, meets NCC requirements and achieves a Green Star rating. Kooltherm K10 PLUS is manufactured without the use of CFCs/HCFCs, and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP). These important considerations further strengthen the project’s green credentials.
Key features and benefits of Kingspan Kooltherm K10 PLUS soffit boards include high performance and durability; fibre-free rigid thermoset, closed cell phenolic insulation core sandwiched between a front-facing 6mm fibre cement sheet and a reverse tissue-based facing autohesively bonded to the insulation core during manufacture; and negligible risk of damage from antennae, minimising future maintenance and rectification costs.
Wayne said Kooltherm K10 PLUS was a natural choice for them when working on Crown Towers Perth. The superb acoustic dampening quality of the fibre-cement facing was a major advantage, he added. Kooltherm K10 PLUS soffit boards are simple to install and come pre-bonded from the manufacturer.
About 2800 square metres of Kooltherm K10 PLUS soffit board were used in the Crown Towers Perth car park, meeting both functional and aesthetic goals.
Wayne found the experience of working with Kingspan very positive throughout the project, especially their timely product availability and responsive customer service.
