Kingspan Insulation products have been installed throughout the envelope of the new in-patient unit at St David’s Hospice Care in Newport.
To ensure a slim external wall construction whilst also achieving the target U-value of 0.16 W/m2.K, Kingspan Kooltherm K8 cavity board was specified within the cavity wall sections of the construction.
The unit, which holds an Energy Performance Certificate of A, also features an insulated floor and roof, with both elements achieving a U-value of 0.10 W/m2.K. To deliver this, almost 3,000 m2 of Kingspan Kooltherm K3 floorboard was fitted along with Kingspan Kooltherm K7 pitched roof board and Thermaroof TR27 LPC/FM.
Since the completion of the in-patient unit, Kingspan has launched its Kooltherm K100 range offering thermal conductivities of just 0.018 W/m.K across all thicknesses. The expanding range now includes K103 floorboard, K107 pitched roof board and K108 cavity board, helping buildings to achieve outstanding levels of thermal performance with a minimum construction thickness.
