Fire Performance of Kingspan Insulated Panels

Kingspan is dedicated to providing high-performance, innovative insulated panel solutions that not only deliver superior construction efficiencies and lifetime performance, but that are underpinned by extensive system fire testing and proven fire performance.

What is an Insulated Panel?

Insulated panels are made up of an insulation core sandwiched between two layers of metal sheets – one the external weather side, the other a pre-finished internal liner. The result is a single component solution that replaces multi-part construction.

Kingspan insulated roof and wall panel systems offer significant advantages over conventional site-assembled solutions, providing fast, single-fix installation with high levels of thermal performance and energy efficiency.

We are often asked the difference between insulated sandwich panels and Aluminium Composite Material (ACM). The composition and function of both products are very different, and we’ve created a short video that explains this which you can watch here.

Kingspan Insulation Fire Testing

Kingspan's high-performance PIR, QuadCore® and Kooltherm® insulated building products undergo multiple tests to determine their fire performance. These tests fall into two key categories: reaction to fire and fire resistance, which align with the stages of fire development.

This video explains these core concepts and why a high level of performance across both elements is important for assessing fire safety in building products and cladding applications.
