Long Clawson Dairy QuadCore

Long Clawson turns to QuadCore™ Technology to ensure the demands for energy efficiency, sustainability, insulation and fire resistance are fulfilled at their new site.

The Project

Long Clawson Dairy, established since 1911, is a traditional cheese producer based in the village of Melton Mowbray in Leicestershire. The development of the dairy site features 2217m² of external UltraTemp panels and 1000m² of internal UltraTemp wall and ceiling panels.

Panel lengths on the project reached up to 8m and the coldstore was built for a temperature range of 0°C to 2°C. The project was client-driven and Long Clawson Dairy specifically requested the use of the newest building technologies on the market for the contstruction. Composite Panel Services recommended Kingspan's ground-breaking core technology - QuadCore™ - for its world class fire performance and thermal properties.

Fire Protection

When it comes to protection against fire, not all insulation is the same. The team at Long Clawson Dairy were seeking the next generation of insulation technology and turned to Quadcore™ , Kingspan’s new self-blended hybrid insulation core. With its distinctive grey micro-cell structure, Quadcore™ technology offers key energy efficiency and sustainability benefits as well as insulation technology to fulfill the demands of the Long Clawson site development. QuadCore™ is the only hybrid closed-cell insulated panel material approved to FM 4882 for smoke sensitive occupancy. It achieves a reaction to fire of B-s1,d0 to EN 13501-1, the lowest smoke emissions possible. This makes it ideal for food preparation and storage areas. QuadCore™ also achieves fire resistance of up to one hour insulation and three hours integrity to EN 13501- 2, meaning it passes all previous fire tests achieved by PIR core panels.

Kingspan UltraTemp is available in a range of wide panel spans, ensuring a quick and easy installation process. The UltraTemp QuadCore™ panel is lightweight, which is a benefit to handling on site. Kingspan offer complimentary field service training from our specialised Kingspan Academy. This ensures expert installation of the system onsite and minimises installation issues.
