QuadCore Karrier Panel

QuadCore Karrier

Overview

The QuadCore Karrier System is a proven factory engineered building system which comprises individual high performance insulated panels designed to support the façades. Standard panels are available in a width of 1100mm, and can be cut making them ideal for projects with close window arrangements.

The lightweight panels can be manually lifted into position or can be installed with mechanical handling devices.This option is extremely flexible and can be considered at design and post design stages of a project.
The panels can be fixed to a lightweight steel framing system (SFS), available from Kingspan Steel Building Solutions. Alternatively, QuadCore Karrier Panel can be fixed to a braced Kingspan Multibeam purlin and rail system, available from Kingspan Structural Products & Systems.

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.
