The Kingspan Hybrid System was utilised for Tammy and Neil Giddings' new build as their design included a large room in the roof space. The Kingspan TEK
structural insulated panel provides great thermal performance, airtightness and allows a quick roof installation, so it was a natural choice.
The Giddings' remit for their new build was to design a house that would reduce their energy usage and would also be very airtight. They wanted the upstairs to have lots of natural light with a feeling of space and the Kingspan ULTIMA
wall system combined with the Kingspan TEK
roof allowed this to be achieved.
as a roofing solution provides its own benefits. As a structual insulated panel TEK
can span further and eliminates the need for trusses, so the roof space can be better used as a habitable environment. The TEK
panel comes pre-insulated and internally battened, eliminating the need for quilt insulation is eliminated. This means there is one less job for the customer to worry about, and it also increases the speed of build on-site.
panel can be utilised to get airtightness levels down from the building regulations requirement of 10, to performance levels at less than 0.6
The Kingspan Hybrid system can not only save the customer money by reducing the energy usage cost, but can help increase the value of their home by helping to easily utilise the roof space.
