The Kingspan Kooltherm® K-range is an extensive range of premium performance rigid phenolic insulation products for roofs, walls and floors, which are ideal for use in Loft Conversions. Rigid phenolic insulation offers the following benefits:

  • With a thermal conductivity of 0.021-0.024 W/m.K rigid phenolic insulation is the most thermally efficient insulation product commonly available.
  • Utilises the thinnest possible insulation board to achieve required U-values.
  • Fire performance can be equivalent to mineral fibre.
  • Achieves a Class O / Low Risk fire rating to the Building Regulations / Standards
  • Achieves the best possible rating of <5% smoke obscuration when tested to BS 5111: Part 1: 1974.
  • Its closed cell structure resists both moisture and water vapour ingress - problems which can be associated with open cell materials such as mineral fibre and which can result in reduced thermal performance.
  • Unaffected by air movement - problems that can be experienced with mineral fibre and which can reduce thermal performance.
  • Safe and easy to install - masks are not required, as there is no dust or irritable fibres.
  • Provide reliable long term thermal performance over the lifetime of the building.
  • CFC / HCFC -free with zero Ozone Depletion Potential.
