CPD: Fire Performance of Insulated Panels

This CPD, developed specifically for architects and specifiers, aims to provide a wider understanding of the testing and certification, to regulatory requirements and insurance industry standards, that underpin the fire performance of Kingspan insulated panel systems.
CPD: Fire Performance of Insulated Panels

Learning objectives

  • Common misconceptions including the difference between ACM panels and insulated sandwich panels;
  • The spectrum of combustibility – not all insulation is the same;
  • The science of fire - explaining the Euroclass system and the difference between reaction and resistance;
  • Fire Safety regulations and the recent amendments in England, Scotland and Wales;
  • Insurance industry standards – introducing FM Approvals and the LPCB and the importance of insurer-driven and insurer-recognised large-scale fire tests;
  • Real fire case studies – the independently-investigated proof that Kingspan insurer-approved PIR core insulated panels protect against fire spread; and
  • The compliant solutions offered by Kingspan’s insulated panel systems.
