Why Kingspan Thermataper Systems?

There are many critical factors which must be taken into consideration when designing a flat roof construction. Two of these factors, insulation and rainwater run–off, can be addressed with Thermataper LPC/FM Systems.

Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems comprise tapered Insulation boards, flat packer boards, pre–mitred hip and valley boards and a tapered roofing design service. The systems can be used under most waterproofing membranes.

Why is the System simpler?

On new roofs, the use of a Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems eliminate the need to incorporate a fall into the design of the roof deck. A new waterproofing membrane can be laid on top of the original waterproofing. This eliminates the need for stripping down the roof to deck level, and the provision of a vapour control layer may not be required 
How much cheaper?

Using a Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems to achieve a U–value of 0.16 W/m2.K could be up to, or over, 26% cheaper than using alternative methods (e.g. screed) to create a fall in a flat roof for rainwater drainage purposes.
Why is the System quicker?

Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems avoid a wet trade and do not need time to dry out, saving time in the scheduling of a construction project.  
Why is the System lighter?

Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems are also a lighter weight alternative to screeding and they do not present the risk of an overloaded structure due to excessive screed depths. Kingspan Thermataper LPC/FM Systems can be as little as 1.5%, or less, of the weight of a solution using screed to falls with a flat insulation board.
Why is there less waste?

Pre–mitred boards reduce waste from the installation process. Insulation boards are cut in half by us in our factory to make mitred hip and valley boards.
