Confidence in Kingspan

Recent high-profile fires have reinforced the importance of choosing the right cladding system for your building.

This page explains the extensive fire testing certification available for both QuadCore™ Technology (our new hybrid bespoke insulation core) and our standard ECOsafe and FIREsafe PIR insulated panel systems. In addition it contains independent fire investigation reports to show how Kingspan panel systems perform in real fire situations. 

Unrivalled Testing & Approvals

Kingspan Insurer Certified sandwich panels achieve high levels of reaction to fire performance in tests specified for regulatory purposes, large scale tests developed by the insurance industry and large scale tests developed by other organisations including ISO, British Standards Institute (BSI) and the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA).
In addition to reaction to fire tests, we can provide various levels of fire resistance with Kingspan panel systems, achieving up to 3 hours fire integrity and 1 hour fire insulation.
