Kingspan Insulation has introduced Kingspan Thermataper TT44-K and Thermataper TT47-K, its first tapered roofing systems to incorporate Kingspan Kooltherm insulation.
This will deliver excellent drainage and thermal performance with slim, lightweight constructions.
Kingspan Thermataper TT44-K and Thermataper TT47-K are designed for use on new and existing roofs with concrete or timber decks.
With a thermal conductivity of just 0.018 W/m.K, the Kingspan Kooltherm packer board helps to minimise the overall system thickness required to achieve a desired U-value.
Typical thickness savings of 20 – 40 mm could be achieved, dependent on the individual scheme and build-up, when compared with a full Polyisocyanurate (PIR) system.
Kingspan Thermataper TT44-K and Thermataper TT47-K can provide an effective flat roof drainage solution whilst eliminating the need for a structural fall.
Each application is supported by Kingspan’s specialist tapered roofing design service, providing a clear layout for installers which will allow the desired level of rainwater run-off and insulation performance to be achieved. The service also includes a full condensation risk analysis.
Unlike traditional alternatives, such as screed to fall, the systems can be fitted with a dry installation process – reducing project timescales.
In retrofit application, they can often be installed above the existing roof surface in conjunction with a waterproof membrane, which can avoid the time-consuming process of stripping down the existing surface.
Pre-mitred hip and valley boards are also supplied as part of Kingspan Thermataper systems, reducing both on-site adjustments and waste from offcuts.
