Encapsulating innovation with Kingspan OPTIM-R

  • 19 Apr 2018

Kingspan has developed the Kingspan OPTIM-R E Roofing System, featuring its innovative encapsulated vacuum insulated panel.

This is in light of the demand for high quality, thin yet robust insulation solutions to cope with the ever-growing pressure to create more future-proofed, energy efficient properties.

The market launch of Kingspan OPTIM-R in 2012 saw the dawn of next generation insulation. However,

Kingspan OPTIM-R E continues this innovation, by entirely encapsulating a vacuum insulated panel (VIP) in a high performance PIR insulation board.

This layer protects the gas-tight membrane of the VIP during installation.

The OPTIM-R E Roofing System, which is suitable for applications on flat roofs, terraces and balconies, consists of both OPTIM-R E panels and OPTIM-R Flex infill strips.

Kingspan’s specialist supporting installation design service offers detailed layouts and instruction with every installation to guarantee the ratio of OPTIM-R E panels to OPTIM-R flex infill strips is maximized for each project.

The OPTIM-R E panels arrive on site as part of a system, manufactured to the building’s dimensions, with no requirements for any extra cutting or moulding, therefore ideal for tight timescales.
