NBS Product Specification

With an aged design value thermal conductivity of 0.007 W/m∙K, the Kingspan OPTIM-R External Wall System provides an insulating performance that is up to five times better than commonly used insulation materials.

The next generation insulation solution for external walls is made up of vacuum insulation panels accompanied by premium performance rigid insulation infill panels which can be cut to fit around penetrations, reveals and where fixtures and fittings need to be installed.

The Kingspan OPTIM-R External Wall System provides solutions for areas that previously could have remained un-insulated because of insufficient space available. In new constructions, the System can significantly enhance U-values in areas that would otherwise be accepted as denigrating the overall thermal performance.
