Structural Insulated Panels (SIPS)
The Kingspan TEK® Building System comprises 142 mm or 172 mm thick structural insulated panels (SIPs) connected with a unique jointing system for walls and roofs, and intermediate floors using I–beams or open web joists.
Kingspan TEK® Building System panels consist of a high performance fibre-free rigid urethane insulation core, sandwiched between two layers of Oriented Strand Board type 3 (OSB/3). During manufacture, the insulation core of Kingspan TEK® Building System panels is autohesively bonded to the OSB/3 facings. This process provides more reliable and superior adhesion than the secondary bonding process used in the manufacture of most other SIPS.
Kingspan TEK® Building System panels are a structural composite. This composite assembly provides stiffness, strength and predictable responses to applied loads.
The Kingspan TEK® Building System is recognised by major building warranty providers such as NHBC, Building Life Plans, Premier, Build Zone Homebond and HAPM.
The Kingspan TEK® Building System’s use is covered by European Technical Approval ETA-11/0466 and by LABC Registered Details Certificate No. EWW546.
