Weathertight building envelope in a fraction of the time
QuadCore Karrier System can be used in conjunction with BENCHMARK’s metallic and non metallic Rainscreen Façades.
Where BENCHMARK by Kingspan 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.
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.
Standard lengths 1.8 to 14 metres. 14 to 19.7 metres can be supplied but may be subject to a transport surcharge and restrictions.
Panels less than 1.8m long will be charged at full 1.8m price, plus cutting cost.
Our through wall solution is fully tested to comply with BR 135 to BS8414 requirements for buildings over 18m high. In addition, our systems have been CWCT tested and our SFS systems are BBA approved. They come with a 30 year through-wall system guarantee.
The Quadcore Karrier panels have a Thermal Transmittance (U value), calculated using the method required by the Building Regulations Part L2 (England & Wales) and Section 6 (Scotland) Technical Handbooks.
