Swift Construction

The new flat roof features 3000m2 of the Kingspan K Dek roof system; a single-ply solution combining PVC/TPE membrane with high-performing insulation and a trapezoidal-profiled steel deck. K Dek is a pre-engineered panel and is assembled off site. This significantly increases the speed of construction since panels can simply be placed and secured onto the roof.

Aesthetically Pleasing

The Kingspan Eurobox panel combines aesthetics with high energy and structural performance. The panels have been vertically laid on this building to give a striking effect and a Silver Metallic coating was chosen to complement the project’s industrial surroundings.

Future Proofed

An AQUAsafe lining has been applied to the inside of the panel. This is a technically advanced polyvinyl chloride coating which provides the necessary anti-corrosion protection in high humidity environments.

Offering Total Peace of Mind

Keeping a business secure and installing superior fire performance panels is a key requirement for any business. The K Dek and Eurobox panels installed on this building are both LPCB and FM approved, and offer significant protection in the event of a fire. These panels provide peace of mind for business owners because they are an exceptional fire safety measure.

Architectural Flexibility

Kingspan’s Day-Lite Klick wall panel combined with Architectural Wall Panel in Euro-Box profile proved ideal to meet the aesthetic, thermal performance and cost-effective requirements of the project. Kingspan Day-Lite Klick is a co-extruded, multi-wall polycarbonate wall light offering excellent interior levels of natural light whilst maintaining thermal efficiency and aesthetic appearance. This product can be easily integrated into any design and is completely compatible with the Eurobox wall panels also installed on this project, offering total architectural flexibility.
