Company Profile

Kingspan Insulation is a market leading manufacturer of innovative, high performance insulation products which help reduce the carbon footprint of the built environment.

The hot humid tropics benefits from the radiant heat barriers offered by the Kingspan products where the heat is repelled during the day and not trapped. The anti-condensation work performed by Kingspan AIR-CELL® is another important function, helping to reduce moisture and mould and promoting healthy comfortable buildings in the tropics.

Company Background

Originally established in 1997 as Air-Cell Insulation, the company became Kingspan Insulation after it was acquired in 2009.

As Air-Cell Insulation, the company pioneered flexible thermo-reflective insulation in Australia and is today the country’s leading brand in the segment. Thermo-reflective insulation is known to have many benefits particularly in the tropics where radiant heat is a major issue.

Green Credentials

ISO 14001 NCS Certified Environmental Management System
HIA Green Smart Partner
Green Building Council Australia Member
Raw material supply chains can have an all too easy to ignore impact on a business' sustainability performance. The ultimate goal in this area is to source raw materials responsibly. The main whole building environmental assessment tools used in the UK, BREEAM and the Code for Sustainable Homes, award credits for responsible sourcing of building materials other than insulation. BREEAM 2008 also awards credits for insulation products on the basis of the ISO 14001 certification status of a business and its immediate suppliers. The current (April 2008) version of the Code for Sustainable Homes does not award credits for the responsible sourcing of insulation materials, though it is expected that this will change in the future.

Kingspan Kooltherm® products produced at Kingspan Insulation's Pembridge and Castleblayney manufacturing facilities are manufactured under a management system certified to BS EN ISO 14001: 2004 / I.S. EN ISO 14001: 2004. The principle polymer components of the products are also manufactured under a management system certified to ISO 14001: 2004.

Kingspan AIR-CELL® encapsulated air cellular range is manufactured under a management system certified to AS/NZS ISO 14001.2004.
