Kingspan Industrial Insulation has once again displayed its commitment to manufacturing excellence as products in its Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation range were awarded a best-in-class Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort Gold certificate.
The Indoor Air Comfort certification programme was created to harmonise the criteria of mandatory and voluntary product regulations from across Europe which govern VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) emissions. Following rigorous testing at its state-of-the-art facility, Eurofins awarded its Gold certification to Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation manufactured on Kingspan Industrial Insulation’s continuous online production and CNC routing lines.
The certification recognises Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation as an outstanding material according to the VOC Indoor Air Quality emissions regulations, achieving an A+ under the French VOC Regulations, a pass under AgBB, and compliance for both BREEAM and LEEDv4 on European projects including the UK.
The programme requires manufacturers to engage in a process of continuous testing and auditing. The certification, therefore, offers not only proof of the current performance of Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation, but also gives assurance of maintained performance and quality.
Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation delivers excellent thermal and fire performance, with thermal conductivities as low as 0.025 W/m·K and a best in class Euroclass Reaction to Fire performance of BL,s1,d0. It also holds BDA Agrement® certification, LABC Registered Detail & Warranty, and is available as a freely downloadable BIM object from either www.kingspanindustrialinsulation.com or the BIMStore website.
In addition to its free Pipeline Technical Advisory Service which can be contacted on 0808 168 7363, Kingspan Industrial Insulation offers the Premier and Premier Plus Services. These services support purchases of Kingspan Kooltherm FM Pipe Insulation and the Kooltherm FM Complete Pipe Insulation System (incorporating Kooltherm Insulated Pipe Support Inserts and Kooltherm FireSleeves) respectively, delivering clear advice and guidance at every stage in a project, from the initial specification, to site visits and certification.
