QuadCore Karrier Case Studies

Kingspan Architectural Facades Systems QuadCore Karrier Image

Quick and easy to install

QuadCore Karrier provides a weathertight building envelope in a fraction of the time of other systems it can be factory or site installed onto Kingspan SFS studs allowing the build team to remove the façade from the critical path of the build program.

Discover our breakthrough insulation innovation - QuadCore


Higher thermal performance, lower smoke emissions, enhanced fire resistance – QuadCore is our new self-bespoke hybrid insulation core which takes the lifetime performance of Kingspan building envelopes to new levels.

QuadCore Karrier Rainscreen Substructure

QuadCore Karrier System can be used in conjunction with metallic and non metallic Rainscreen Façades. Where Kingspan Facades does not offer a specific façade type to meet the client or designer’s requirements we can work with your required façade supplier to provide structural calculations to ensure your façade is adequately fixed to our QuadCore Karrier panel or SFS studs.
80mm QuadCore Karrier Panel with Dri-Design aluminium has been tested to BS 8414-2 and meets the requirements of BR 135 for façades with a storey above 18m. Read more
