QuadCore Karrier Rainscreen Substructure System


QuadCore™ Karrier System can be used in conjunction with metallic and non metallic Rainscreen Facades. Where Kingspan Facades 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.

QuadCore™ Karrier is a lightweight, proven factory-engineered building system which comprises individual high-performance insulated panels designed to support facades. Karrier provides a weathertight building envelope in a fraction of the time of other systems.
