Kingspan

Historic city centrepiece refurbished with the help of Kingspan

  • 4 Jun 2019

Kingspan’s pipe and ductwork products have been installed on the Grade II-listed Hanover at NOMA in Manchester, providing space-saving insulation to enhance the performance of its building services.

Hanover comprises a former Edwardian drapery warehouse and office block, linked by an atrium. The development team at NOMA wanted to ensure the regeneration of the eight-storey structure preserved its heritage character, whilst creating efficient Grade A office space to complement its retail and leisure facilities.

M&E consultants, Walsh Integrated Building Services, worked alongside Russells Construction to develop a specification which delivered modern levels of performance within the restraints of the existing building’s design.

To help deliver this, Cilex Insulations Ltd installed 7,000 lm of Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation and 500 square metres of Kingspan Kooltherm Duct Insulation on the internal ductwork of the building, including the plant rooms and within the service void of a Kingspan Access Floors raised access flooring.

As well as this, 500 square metres of Kingspan Therma Duct Insulation was also used for the external ductwork on the roof.

Reflecting on the specification, Brett Carroll, from Cilex Insulations, commented: “For this refurbishment, we needed a solution which helped the client maximise lettable space but also performed to a high standard.

“Kingspan products are our number one choice when it comes to premium projects and have been for many years. Their technical support team is always on hand to provide any assistance or additional information that may be required by the client.”

Kingspan Kooltherm Pipe Insulation can achieve industry leading aged thermal conductivities as low as 0.025 W/m·K (at +10°C mean).

As a result of its excellent thermal performance, a reduced thickness of insulation can be used which allowed the pipework to be effectively insulated within the tight service spaces.

The product has also been awarded a best-in-class Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate, recognising it as an outstanding material according to the VOC Indoor Air Quality emissions standards.

It has also been CE Marked in conformance with BS EN 14314: 2009+A1: 2013, which certifies that the product can reliably demonstrate it is both durable and performs as expected.

Kingspan Kooltherm Duct Insulation is a rigid phenolic insulation and has been CE Marked to verify its compliance with the harmonised European Standard (hEN).
