Karrier - system highlights:

Karrier is a proven, factory-engineered building system which comprises individual high performance insulated panels designed to support the facades.  A high performance equivalent of traditional ventilated facade.

With excellent thermal and sound insulation properties as well as fire performance, Karrier can successfully replace traditional external wall or ventilated facade.

Karrier is about speed and simplicity. Can be installed in all weather conditions.


 

Versatility. Redefined.

Karrier system can be used with wide range of cladding solutions such as HPL, ACM, Fibercement, ceramic, mesh or prefabricated aluminium cassettes such as Dri-Design

Can be installed vertically and horizontally

Karrier panels are available in two options - with two types of insulation core:
  • Karrier IPN - with IPN indsulation core
  • Karrier K-Roc - with mineral wool core
Heat protection

For maximum thermal protection performance: Heat transfer coefficients according to EN 14509 A.10

Fire protection and fire behavior

Our Karrier panel elements meet the high requirements and tests of the national technical regulations and standards. The safe fire behavior of the panels with the FireSafe IPN insulation core has been classified according to EN 13501-1 in class B-s1, d0. For further information on fire resistance please contact our technical service department.

Soundproofing

Without additional measures, our Karrier panel elements achieve an evaluated noise reduction of Rw = 25dB.
 

Quality


Karrier system is manufactured using the best components available, with rigorous quality control procedures, in modern manufacturing plant, in compliance with ISO 9001:2000.

Material

Steel facings

Surface treated steel with a zinc coating weight of 275g / m2, according to DIN EN 10346. The standard plate thickness of the outer covering layer is 0.60 mm. The inner cover layer has a thickness of 0.40 mm.

Profiling

The elements have a microlinated surface (M profile) on the outside and have a slightly lined profile (Q-Minibox type) on the inside.

Organic Coatings

Polyester is a universal and economical coating system for exterior and interior applications. The nominal coating thickness is 25 μm. Kingspan Spectrum® has a layer thickness of 50μm and has a slightly granulated surface structure. The system offers excellent aging and weathering resistance, excellent corrosion resistance and UV resistance as well as high color and gloss resistance (no chipping). The high formability and the excellent resistance to mechanical damage complete the properties. Spectrum® is free of chlorine, phthalates and plasticizers and is 100% recyclable. Inside polyester coating with a nominal thickness of 15 μm. The standard color is white (similar to RAL 9002). Further coatings and color shades are available on request.

Sealing tapes

Karrier panel elements offer an anti-condensation sealing tape on the machine side in the longitudinal impact.
Heat protection
