Kingspan Insulation has introduced a new website to provide make it easy for specifiers to access insulation knowledge.
The site features detailed information on Kingspan’s product range and has a free online education centre: Kingspan Insight. The centre allows users to choose from a range of interactive multi-unit courses, covering key industry topics, and earn points towards their CPD.
Three courses are available, covering Building Regulations and Standards, tapered roofing design and the impact of insulation specifications on the long-term rental value of properties.
The courses are broken down into short modules which have a clear estimated time – often short enough to be completed during a lunch break or in the morning commute.
The section will also feature regular technical articles and advice pieces, in addition to five-minute courses on topics such as R-values.
The wider site has also been redesigned, making it easier for users to identify the best product for each application. View the new website for yourself here.
