Kingspan Insulated Panels has been named a winner in the Architectural Products 2018 Product Innovation Awards. The eighth annual awards honor innovation in the development and refinement of building-related products and range from cladding systems to interior finishes. Beyond recognizing innovative products, they also honor manufacturers who have demonstrated outstanding leadership across platforms like research and development, education and sustainability initiatives.
This year, Kingspan won an Industry Leader Award for our commitment to sustainability, transparency and resiliency, and a Product Innovation Award for QuadCore Technology, our most technologically-advanced metal panel insulation.
It’s no secret that Kingspan is paving the way to a sustainable future. Our five North American facilities currently exceed 70 percent for renewable energy use and we have committed to become a Net Zero Energy company by 2020.
Kingspan has also joined multiple initiatives regarding climate and environmental impact. We are a founding member of the International Living Future Institute’s Paris Solutions Campaign, a group of organizations that shares aggressive climate goals in alignment with the 2015 Paris Agreement. We also recently joined some of the world’s leading global companies in a commitment to the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) to reduce our Scope 1, 2 and 3 greenhouse gas emissions by 10% by 2025, off the base year of 2017.
Our QuadCore Technology was also recognized for being a leading, innovative product. QuadCore Technology utilizes a hybrid insulation core with a closed microcell structure that delivers the ultimate in insulated metal panel performance in four key areas: thermal performance, fire protection, health and wellness, and warranty.
QuadCore is certified as the most thermally-efficient, closed-cell insulation material in the insulated metal panel market and surpasses all other closed-cell insulated panel systems when it comes to fire performance and fire resistance. QuadCore’s unmatched third-party certifications include GREENGUARD Gold and a Silver Level Material Health Certificate, earned through the rigorous Cradle to Cradle assessment. In addition, Kingspan is so confident in the science and testing that has gone into QuadCore that it’s backed by a 30- year thermal warranty – a first in the industry.
QuadCore Technology represents a huge leap forward for the creation of buildings that deliver cutting-edge thermal performance.
Kingspan is proud to be an Architectural Products 2018 Product Innovation Awards winner and we look forward to continuing on a path of innovation and sustainability.
