Most Trusted brand

Kingspan Insulation has been recognized as Australia’s most trusted insulation brand by architecture, building and construction professionals since the awards were established in 2012 by Architecture & Design, winning the award for five consecutive surveys.

Scott Gibson, Managing Director of Kingspan Insulation Asia Pacific stated ‘’To win this title every year since the establishment of these awards is an extremely humbling accolade. Knowing that the experiences our customers are having with our people, our products and the brand is an incredible endorsement of our technical expertise, customer service and quality of products.’’
 

CodeMark

Kingspan products are committed to the highest international standards of production and design and are benchmarked against all relevant standards and codes ensuring products comply with the world’s best practices.

Third-party independent accreditors such as SAI Global and Factory Mutual (FM) are used to independently verify product compliance. CodeMark is Australia’s leading building product certification scheme and certifies products against the relevant insulation sections of the NCC.

Kingspan Insulation Australia currently holds 12 CodeMark certificates across the Kooltherm and Air-Cell product ranges and was the first insulation company to obtain this certification back in 2008. Being CodeMark certified provides peace of mind to home owners, builders, architects and building certifiers verifying that the relevant Kingspan products is  compliant with the NCC insulation requirements for which is being promoted, helping to better manage risk and legal liability.
