BENCHMARK Evolution Axis panels combine aesthetics with performance. The core of the panel system is fundamental in providing superior fire and thermal performance.  Kingspan’s unique PIR core offers superior fire performance when compared to most alternative insulation materials. As a thermosetting material, it does not melt, flow or drip when exposed to fire. Rather, it forms a strong char that protects the insulating core. Fire will not spread within the panels. Kingspan FIREsafe PIR panels do not propagate fire and have been proven to greatly reduce the risk of total building loss.

Evolution Axis panels are suitable for most building applications as an external façade element in either horizontal or vertical applications.
  • EcoSafe, environmentally sustainable panel system
  • Suitable for vertical or horizontal applications
  • Lifetime insulation continuity, thermal performance and airtightness (less than 5m3/hr/m2) certainty
  • Panel Guarantee

Corners and Curves

Curved elevations and neatly formed secret-fix corners are easily achieved with the PIR Evolution range.

Panels can be curved vertically and horizontally to create large sweeping elevations or used for more understated corner sections.

Panels can also be cranked and mitred to form internal or external corner units or to create depth to a boxed and recessed window detail.
