Cavan, Ireland - Building component and insulation panel producer Kingspan Group plc has been supplying its insulated panels for the construction of a new headquarters for Carisbrooke Shipping, an international shipping firm on the UK's Isle of Wight.
Along with Kingspan's KS1000 MR Micro-Rib architectural wall panels, the new building will feature Kingspan Thermatile - an Eco-safe insulation panel with a PIR (polyisocyanurate) core, which bonds the external and internal sheets of the panel together during manufacture, Kingspan said. Thermatile was used to good effect on a corner section of the building, highlighting the easy integration and design flexibility offered by these two systems, the company added.
"Using Kingspan products ensured a good appearance and allowed for a simpler and more economical envelope," said Michael Chappell of Reid Steel - the building contractor used by the shipping company. (RD)
