Evolution Multi-Groove

Evolution Multi-Groove is a premium flat panel that has one, two or three grooves engineered into its surface, creating subtle shadow lines on the building's façade and an illusion of smaller panel widths without the installation time constraints.

Length 2.0–7.0m.  1000mm standard width.  
Fast track, single component installation

A super smooth unprofiled secret fix insulated panel that can be laid vertically or horizontally, the perfect solution for a minimalist facade.

Laid vertically or horizontally panels integrate easily with other Kingspan Facade products and are available in a wide range of colours and surface textures.
