QuadCore roof and wall panels

Kingspan QuadCore technology


With the intelligent connection of internal and external perspectives, we have achieved a scientific breakthrough: the development of our revolutionary QuadCore™ foam.

The extraordinary insulation core offers completely new advantages. As a powerful core of our insulated wall panels, it provides the best thermal performance in the industry, excellent fire protection, improved environmental performance and a guarantee of 40 years of thermal performance.

Products with QuadCore technology

Thermal performance

20% more insulation performance is unique. How it works? With a superior thermal conductivity (lambda value) of only 0.018 W / mK.

20% better performance

IPN QuadCore 20% better performance
The graph shows the required core thickness to achieve a U-value of 0.20 W / m²K. QuadCore™ requires only a thickness of 9cm, while mineral wool needs more than twice as much insulation material to achieve the same U-value.

Due to the thinner element, advantages in the transport, accessories and storage area can arise.

Energy consideration

Fire protection

The significant advantages in terms of fire behavior of our Kingspan QuadCore™ Technology: very low flammability, low fire expansion and very low smoke.

Fire behavior


Here is a comparison between panels with QuadCore™ technology and other elements.

Elements with QuadCore™ technology achieve a classification of B-s1, d0. In accordance with DIN 4102-1, this is equivalent to the design approval "hardly inflammable". The smoking behavior is classified with the addition s1 and stands for "very low smoke behavior". The elements are not dripping and are therefore classified with the addition d0.

Sustainability

We at Kingspan have always believed that advanced construction methods must never go at the expense of nature.

Kingspan QuadCore Sustainable Building

Sustainable Building



QuadCore™ is produced without CFCs / HCFCs and other components that contribute to global warming. The Quadcore products score a zero-waste strategy in sustainable building certification systems. QuadCore™ can be a key contribution to certification by institutes such as DGNB, LEED, BREEAM or Greenstar.
