Kingspan Tek Panel
Structural Insulated Panel Technology
Timber, worldwide, is traditionally the most widely used building material. It is easy to handle, natural and brings flexibility to design.
Today, many buildings are built with a traditional timber frame structure and this trend is growing as Building Regulations / Standards strive for better thermal performance and the construction industry increasingly moves towards the off-site construction of buildings.
Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) technology is the next generation of timber based construction methods.
The Kingspan TEK® Building System
The Kingspan TEK® Building System comprises SIP panels connected with a unique jointing system for walls, roofs and intermediate floors using I-beams or open web joists. Design and structural calculation services are also an integral part of the System.
Kingspan TEK® Building System panels consist of a high performance rigid urethane insulation core, with zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP), sandwiched between two layers of Oriented Strand Board type 3 (OSB/3). During manufacture, the insulation core of Kingspan TEK®
Building System panels is autohesively bonded to the OSB/3 facings. This process provides a more reliable and superior adhesion than the traditional secondary bonding process.
Kingspan TEK® Building System panels are a structural composite. This composite assembly provides stiffness, strength and predictable responses to applied loads.
The Kingspan TEK® Building System is recognised by the major building warranty providers such as Building Life Plans, Homebond, HAPM, NHBC and Zurich Municipal. It also holds BBA, IAB, BM Trada and Zulassung Certification.
The complete System is delivered to site ready for erection by fully qualified Kingspan TEK® construction teams.
