Golfers at Centurion Club in Hemel Hempstead have appreciated the installation of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System for their clubhouse.
Situated in the Hertfordshire countryside, Centurion Club offers fine facilities and exemplary customer service, with the contemporary clubhouse being relaxing and luxurious, with a stylish restaurant and private rooms available for hire.
A recessed roof terrace was incorporated into the building design to fully make the most of the sights across the lake and 18th green.
To guarantee a level threshold for a smooth transition from inside to outside, along with keeping the area well insulated, the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System was chosen.
The next generation insulation solution features vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) with a microporous core which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope.
This delivers an insulating performance up to five times better than commonly available insulation materials.
The 20 mm Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System was fitted on the terrace below Kingspan Thermataper TT47 LPC/FM, with the use of this product eliminating the need to incorporate a structural fall into the design.
This also provided a lightweight and dry alternative to screeding.
As with all installations of the Kingspan OPTIM-R System, the specialist technical team from Kingspan were on hand to provide detailed layouts and instructions for the project, ensuring it achieved the best possible level of thermal performance from absolute minimal thickness.
20-40 mm thick Kingspan OPTIM-R panels are also certified under the demanding BDA Agrément® scheme, which is accepted by NHBC and the LABC and can help to fast-track projects through the procedures and approvals processes, lowering project costs even further.
