Optim-R Product Wedge

Next Generation Insulation Solutions


OPTIM-R vacuum insulated panels (often called a VIP) offer solutions for those times when you know you're going to run out of space or for when space is tight.

Product Information

Kingspan OPTIM-R comprises a rigid vacuum insulation panel which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope, giving outstanding thermal conductivity, with the thinnest possible solution to insulation problems.

OPTIM-R is accompanied by a full design service to ensure that the system is used as effectively as possible in the space available

Unlike other commonly available insulation, OPTIM-R has unique benefits:
 
  • Declared (aged) thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K
  • Provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials
  • High levels of thermal efficiency with minimal thickness
  • Over 90% (by weight) recyclable
  • Ideal for constructions where a lack of construction depth or space is an issue
  • Available in a range of sizes and thicknesses
  • If installed correctly and protected from damage and penetration, can provide reliable long-term thermal performance over the lifetime of the building.

OPTIM-R Applications

Optim-R Balcony Terraces Application

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials.

The next generation insulation solution for balconies and terraces is made up of vacuum insulated panels accompanied by high performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as drainage gutters.

The Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System is designed for use where there is a requirement for low U-values and the thinnest possible balcony or terrace build-up. It is particularly suited for applications where the design requires a level surface between room and balcony or where there is limited depth in the existing construction. 

Optim-R External Walls Application render

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K, the Kingspan OPTIM-R External Wall System provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials.

The next generation insulation solution for external walls is made up of vacuum insulated panels accompanied by premium performance rigid insulation infill panels and which can be cut to fit around penetrations, reveals and where fixtures and fittings need to be installed.

The Kingspan OPTIM-R External Wall System provides solutions for areas that previously could have remained un-insulated because of insufficient space available. In new constructions, the System can significantly enhance U-values in areas that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance.

Optim-R Flat Roofs Application render

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials.

The next generation insulation solution for floors is made up of vacuum insulated panels accompanied by high performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as roof lights or ventilator kerbs.

The Kingspan OPTIM-R Roofing System is designed for use where there is a requirement for low U-values and the thinnest possible roof build-up. It is particularly suited for applications where there may be little space for installing new roof insulation, for example in buildings with planning height restrictions.

Optim-R floor application render

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Flooring System provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than other commonly available insulation materials.

The next generation insulation solution for floors is made up of vacuum insulated panels accompanied by premium performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as penetrations or load bearing walls.

In retrofit applications the Kingspan OPTIM-R Flooring System provides solutions for areas that previously would have remained un-insulated because of insufficient space available or because the excavation of material is impractical.

In new constructions the Kingspan OPTIM-R Flooring System can significantly enhance U-values in areas that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance.
