Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Board from Kingspan Insulation, Australia’s premium insulation manufacturer and supplier for the building industry, is more than a world-class thermal insulation barrier – it’s also a great time and money saver for building owners due to its ease of installation and its attractive white finish without the extra cost of painting.
Kingspan Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Board is a rigid white-faced phenolic insulation board designed to insulate concrete ceilings and suspended concrete slabs. Typical applications include carparks, where boards are used to clad the exposed concrete and provide an attractive, thermally efficient, protective barrier between levels.
This high-performance insulation board has been designed to deliver premium fire protection. Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Boardhas a Group 1 fire performance classification, in accordance with AS ISO 9705 testing methodologies as outlined in the National Construction Code (NCC). The white surface area eliminates the need for painting, which otherwise may affect the fire performance of the substrate. “Kooltherm® K10 Soffit Boards are the only rigid soffit insulation products in Australia with CodeMark certification, which includes a certified classification as a Group 1 material,” says Kingspan Insulation’s Technical and R&D Manager Keith Anderson.
As part of the manufacturing process, boards are assembled with a white aluminium face on the exposed side of the board, and a tissue-based surface reverse side; sandwiched between the two faces are Kooltherm’s famous closed cell phenolic insulation core, which is available in a range of thicknesses (25 mm – 90 mm) to suit different thermal requirements. Since boards are white when installed, property owners can do away with the cost of a second trade to paint and retouch expansive surface areas. Not only do Kingspan Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Boards provide instant insulation efficiencies, but they also serve to brighten enclosed car park areas, improving overall safety.
“The other huge advantage,” Mr. Anderson adds, “is the sheer space efficiency of Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Boards. With such slim profiles, boards are perfectly suited to low-height applications, preserving overhead vehicle clearance as much as possible and safeguarding a sense of spaciousness.”
Kooltherm® K10 White Soffit Board is manufactured without the use of CFCs or HCFCs, and has an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero
