Driving success at golf club

Golfers at Centurion Club in Hemel Hempstead have found their performance matched back at the clubhouse, following the installation of the Kingspan OPTIM-R Balcony & Terrace System

Kingspan has installed its Optim-R balcony and terrace system at the Centurion Golf Club in Hemel Hempstead.

A recessed roof terrace was incorporated into the building design to take advantage of the views across the lake and 18th green, extending the member bar seating area. To ensure a level threshold for a smooth transition from inside to outside, while also keeping the area well insulated, the Kingspan Optim-R balcony and terrace system was specified.

The insulation features vacuum insulation panels (VIPs) with a microporous core which is evacuated, encased and sealed in a thin, gas-tight envelope. With a declared thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m.K, Kingspan Optim-R VIPs can reportedly deliver an insulating performance up to five times better than that of commonly available insulation materials.

The 20 mm Kingspan Optim-R balcony and terrace system was installed on the terrace below Kingspan Thermataper TT47 LPC/FM. The use of this product is said to have eliminated the need to incorporate a structural fall into the design, and provided a lightweight and dry alternative to screeding.
