Kingspan Timber Frame Building

KTS | Timber Frame Construction

Timber Frame Construction

Kingspan Timber Solutions offers two different timber-frame systems. As they are both closed panel, they can be assembled and insulated offsite, drastically reducing build time whilst improving dimensional accuracy.
 
The wall consists of sustainably sourced timber with premium performance Kingspan Kooltherm phenolic insulation. Both systems integrate a vapour control layer to reduce moisture and control thermal bridging. The inclusion of Kingspan Kooltherm phenolic insulation minimises wall thickness, thereby maximising floor space, as well as achieving excellent U-values.
 
The two Kingspan build systems offered are Logic PLUS and ULTIMA.

Kingspan ULTIMA

Ultima - Brick, Block, Timber-1

About Kingspan Ultima Building System

The ULTIMA Building System offers exceptional performance, delivering high levels of thermal performance and airtightness with a slim profile. ULTIMA can practically eliminate cold bridging due to its continuous premium Kingspan Kooltherm insulation lining.

Delivering U-Values ranging from 0.19 to 0.13 W/m2K, ULTIMA is slimmer than any other commonly available building system. By using the premium performance Kingspan Kooltherm insulation within a timber structure, Kingspan ULTIMA offers a slim wall build-up, giving you more internal space.

The provision of a dedicated service void maintains the integrity of both the insulation and airtightness of the wall. The Kingspan ULTIMA panel jointing system maintains continuity of airtightness not only at panel-to-panel junctions but also at critical junctions with foundations, intermediate floors and roof. In whole-building airtightness testing ULTIMA has consistently delivered permeabilities less than 2m3/m2.hr @ 50pa.  The air leakage barrier dressed into openings allows a simple tape seal to windows, doors and other wall penetrations.

The Kooltherm K-range is an extensive range of premium performance phenolic insulants for roof, wall and floor insulation.

Kingspan Kooltherm K112 Framing Board has a fibre-free rigid thermoset phenolic insulation core faced on both sides with a low-emissivity composite foil facing. By using Kingspan Kooltherm® the thickness of insulation included in external walls can be minimised and the floor space available for use increased.
Kingspan Kooltherm offers the following benefits:

  • With a thermal conductivity of 0.018–0.023 W/m.K these are the most thermally efficient insulation products in common use.
  • The thinnest commonly used insulation products for any specific U–value.
  • Manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low  Global Warming Potential (GWP).
  • The closed cell structure resists both moisture and water vapour ingress, a problem which can be associated with open-cell materials such as mineral fibre which can result in reduced thermal performance.
  • Unaffected by air infiltration – a problem that can be experienced with mineral fibre and which can reduce thermal performance.
  • Safe and easy to install – fibre-free core.
  • If installed correctly, can provide reliable long term thermal performance over the lifetime of the building.

Thermal bridging from external junctions has recently become an important factor in energy efficiency because the overall insulation and airtightness standards for UK homes are relatively high. To address this, ULTIMA demonstrates a level of performance that far exceeds SAP guidelines, achieving thermal bridging values of 0.03-0.04.
 

The Kingspan ULTIMA Building System provides enhanced fire resistance performance over standard ‘open-panel’ timber-frame systems. It achieves this by incorporating Kingspan Kooltherm insulation as an internal overlay which protects the structural frame.

The Kingspan ULTIMA Building System exceeds the requirements of Approved Document B Volume 1 with regards to fire resistance when tested in accordance with BS EN 1365:1 1999 and achieved 49 minutes of structural integrity using a standard 15 mm plasterboard lining.

Independent fire assessment confirm that Kingspan ULTIMA would achieve 30 minutes of fire resistance using a 12.5 mm standard plasterboard lining. Should any element of your home require a 60-minute structural integrity, this can be achieved with a 15 mm fire-resistant plasterboard.

About Kingspan Logic Building System

The closed-panel wall consists of sustainably sourced structural timber insulated with premium performance Kingspan Kooltherm phenolic insulation. The wall system is manufactured with an integrated, reflective, vapour-control layer and service batten. It is delivered complete with an external reflective breather membrane to enhance performance and protect the structure during construction.

Developed in-house, Logic PLUS has an inbuilt zone for services such as pipework and electric cabling which allows for future service upgrades, such as extra sockets or networking, to be added without compromising the insulation layer. This therefore maintains the high standard of thermal performance.

Logic PLUS will help manage the extent of renewable energy to a cost-effective level and provides the customer with a high-performance, maintenance-free external wall solution.

The internal vapour control layer is an air barrier, not only preventing moisture but also air leakage, helping to provide airtightness to the whole structure. An airtightness measurement of 5-3 m³/m²/hr @ 50 Pa is achievable.
Logic PLUS benefits from Kingspan Kooltherm insulation, a phenolic premium performance insulation, which as well as achieving excellent thermal performance also allows for a slimmer wall build up.
The thermal bridging calculations for Logic PLUS demonstrate a performance level that exceeds the requirements of SAP testing, used to check compliance with Building Regulations. Logic PLUS can attain levels of thermal bridging performance of 0.05.
The level of protection that an average detached residential property requires is achieved with one layer of 15mm standard plasterboard.
