A smart solution: Kingspan External Wall System


Kingspan Insulation’s OPTIM-R External Wall System has provided a space saving solution to help transform ten under-insulated bungalows in Southend-on-Sea into energy efficient “Smart Homes”.

The cavity walled bungalows featured u-PVC facades around the front and rear windows and allowed high levels of heat loss with an external wall U-value of 1.19 W/m2K. To improve thermal performance within the minimal cavity space behind the facades, 20 mm of the Kingspan OPTIM-R External Wall System was installed.
