Better Buildings for a Better World
Kingspan is driven by a belief that advanced materials and methods of construction hold the answer to some of the great challenges that our planet and society face. From products that insulate better while creating more internal space, to those that harness more natural daylight, we are dedicated to extending the limits of ultra-performance envelope design with a core focus on energy efficiency.
We have created advanced products for architects and building owners which enable them to construct buildings that consume less resources, both through their construction and through their operation. Future proofing investment, generating returns through enhanced internal space and operational performance, and facilitating efficient construction through thinner, lighter and safer to handle materials.
Leading the way
Kingspan’s innovative insulation solutions such as QuadCore™, Kooltherm® and OptimR® are at the forefront of thermal performance. Allowing for significant space savings in new build and renovation, as well as offering superior thermal performance for the building’s lifetime.
Kingspan’s QuadCore™ insulated panel technology delivers the highest performance of any closed cell insulation core across four factors: fire, thermal, environmental and longevity.
Kingspan’s future innovation agenda is driven by enhancing and complementing our portfolio of products to further advance building envelope performance, at the construction, operation and end-of-life stage.
We do this by improving the thermal performance and energy efficiency of our products, by harnessing the power of nature both through our products and in our manufacturing, and by delivering on our ambitious 10-year Planet Passionate Programme.
We will compliment this offering through the ongoing digitalisation of our offering, enabling a golden thread of building design and construction information for all buildings of the future.

Completing the Envelope
In 2016, Kingspan outlined its ambition to “Complete the Envelope”. This strategy identified key product categories which complemented our building envelope solutions through improving energy efficiency and harnessing the power of nature. The product categories identified at that time were natural daylighting and natural ventilation; industrial and technical insulation; and roofing membrane.Read More
