Fire Performance of Kingspan Insulated Panels

Kingspan is dedicated to providing high-performance, innovative insulated panel solutions that not only deliver superior construction efficiencies and lifetime performance, but that are underpinned by extensive system fire testing and proven fire performance.

What Underpins the Fire Performance of Kingspan Insulated Panels?

Kingspan LPCB and FM Approved insulated panels are subjected to rigorous insurance industry large-scale fire tests and associated ongoing audits, and are proven to prevent fire spread in numerous independently-assessed real fire case studies.

In terms of reaction to fire, and in accordance with the Euroclasses, Kingspan QuadCore insulated panel systems are classified B, s1, d0, which is the highest possible performance for a material classified as 'combustible':

  • B - Very limited contribution to fire and will not lead to flashover
  • s1 - Little or no smoke production
  • d0 - No flaming droplets / particles

In addition, Kingspan insulated panels can also offer high levels of fire resistance.

We are often asked the difference between insulated sandwich panels and Aluminium Composite Material (ACM). The composition and function of both products are very different. Watch a short Kingspan Fire FAQ video on the difference between ACM and insulated panels.
