Green Building

Whether you consider it Green Building or just good building practices, energy efficient and water managed walls are a sensible and smart goal of design. Kingspan products help you achieve this goal. Our GreenGuard XPS (extruded polystyrene) products provide superior moisture resistance. They won’t absorb water, are not a food source for mold, and are not subject to moisture-related damage or deterioration, which means they retain their insulating properties over time. Our building wraps and flashings also help to protect the wall against water penetration and damage, and the wraps serve as an air barrier, enhancing thermal performance.
Several organizations, such as the NGBS (National Green Building Standard), and LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), are at the core of the Green Building movement. These groups have initiated certification programs and guidelines that qualify building materials and practices as meeting or exceeding Green Building standards. Using Kingspan products qualifies your structures for points under the National Green Building Standard and the LEED-H and LEED systems.
