Kooltherm K10 FM G2W White Soffit Board from Kingspan Insulation is more than a world-class thermal insulation barrier, it’s also a great time and money saver for building owners due to its ease of installation and attractive white finish without the extra cost of painting.
Kingspan Kooltherm K10 FM G2W White Soffit Board is a rigid white-faced phenolic insulation board designed to insulate concrete ceilings and suspended concrete slabs. Typical applications include carparks, where boards are used to clad the exposed concrete and provide an attractive and thermally efficient protective barrier between levels.
This high-performance insulation board has been designed to deliver premium fire protection. Kooltherm K10 FM G2W White Soffit Board achieves a Group 2 fire performance classification, in accordance with ISO 9705 testing methodologies as outlined in the New Zealand Building Code (NZBC) Clause C3.4. The white surface area eliminates the need for painting, which otherwise may affect the fire performance of the substrate.
As part of the manufacturing process, boards are assembled with a white aluminium face on the exposed side of the board, and a tissue-based surface reverse side. Sandwiched between the two faces is Kooltherm’s famous closed cell phenolic insulation core which is available in thicknesses ranging from 25mm – 90mm, to suit different thermal requirements. Since boards are white when installed, property owners can do away with the cost of a second trade to paint and retouch expansive surface areas. Not only do Kingspan Kooltherm K10 G2W White Soffit Boards provide instant insulation efficiencies, but they also serve to brighten enclosed car park areas, improving overall safety.
“The other huge advantage,” explains Keith Anderson, Technical R&D Accreditation Manager, Kingspan Insulation, “is the sheer space efficiency of Kooltherm K10 FM G2W White Soffit Boards. With such slim profiles, boards are perfectly suited to low-height applications, preserving overhead vehicle clearance as much as possible and safeguarding a sense of spaciousness.”
Kooltherm K10 FM G2W White Soffit Board is manufactured without the use of CFCs or HCFCs, and has an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero.
