OPTIM-R Balcony
& Terrace System

Opitm-R Concrete Deck

Next Generation Insulation Solution for Balconies and Terraces

The Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System is an optimum performance next generation insulation solution from Kingspan Insulation. It comprises of rigid vacuum insulation panels with a microporous core which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope, giving outstanding thermal conductivity, with the thinnest possible solution to insulation problems. The vacuum insulation panels are accompanied by high performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around problem areas such as drainage gutters.

In retrofit applications, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System can be used to avoid height differences between the building interior and the balcony or terrace. In new constructions the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System can significantly enhance U-values in an area that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance.
