Curved Evolution


Curved elevations and neatly formed secret-fix corners are easily achieved with the QuadCore Evolution range.

Panels can be curved vertically and horizontally to create large sweeping elevations or used for more understated corner sections.

Panels can also be cranked and mitred to form internal or external corner units or to create depth to a boxed and recessed window detail.


Fast track, single component installation

A super smooth unprofiled secret fix insulated panel that can be laid vertically or horizontally, the perfect solution for a minimalist facade. Evolution has the aesthetic appeal of a super-smooth aluminium rainscreen facade with the added value of an insulated panel. Laid vertically or horizontally panels integrate easily with other Kingspan Facades and Kingspan products and are available in a wide range of colours and surface textures.
