Our Solution

The building’s structure was to utilise a build-up comprising rigid insulation. The structural insulation was detailed to be tested to ASTM E 84 and NFPA 285, with a high-performance, rigid thermoset insulation faced on both sides with a low emissivity composite foil facing. In addition, the building’s car park soffit was to utilise an FM (Factory Mutual) approved insulation that has high-performance, rigid thermoset insulation with a low emissivity composite foil on its front surface and glass tissue based facing on its reverse surface.

The insulation was also to be manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP) to comply with the Al Sa’fat and Dubai Green Building Regulations. The only insulation available in the local market to match these specifications was Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Cladding Board and Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board.

The premium performance of Kingspan Kooltherm K15 Cladding Board panels — which were installed in a 50 mm thickness — allowed the building to efficiently meet the Dubai Green Building Regulations requirements of 0.57 W/m2K without compromising internal space, moreover; it achieved U- Value of 0.40 W/m2K. Additionally, Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board was installed in a 50 mm thickness to prevent the heat transfer from the building's car park area to the building's temperature-controlled area.
