Product update – Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Rainscreen Board

As part of a development project, Kingspan Insulation has made adjustments to the foil facer material of Kingspan Kooltherm K15. This change affects all Kooltherm K15 manufactured from the 18th October 2021 onwards. Please note that as a result, a number of BS 8414 system tests now have a corresponding assessment in lieu of test, in accordance with the guidance given in BS 9414: 2019. This assessment takes into consideration the change of facing material.
