Kingspan Fire Testing

Kingspan's high-performance PIR, QuadCore® and Kooltherm insulated building products undergo multiple tests to determine their fire performance. These tests fall into two key categories: reaction to fire and fire resistance, which align with the stages of fire development.

This video explains these core concepts and why high levels of performance across both of these elements is important for assessing fire safety in building products.
