Kingspan Insulation has begun manufacturing the Kingspan Thermaroof TR22 in its UAE facility, the company said through a Press communiqué. The new insulation line, the company said, will enhance its portfolio of construction and mechanical engineering insulation ranges. The addition of the insulation line enables Kingspan to further meet the growing market demand in the region for premium-performance building roof insulation, the company further said through the communiqué.
The TR22 is a high-compressive-strength insulation cover board that can be used in overlaying new and existing flat roofs waterproofed with single-ply and cold liquid applied waterproofing, the communiqué said. It is available in a thickness of 20mm, and features a fibre-free insulation core, enabling it to achieve a thermal conductivity as low as 0.028 W/m∙K, the communiqué added.
“Producing Kingspan Thermaroof TR22 in the UAE is essential to the market, as the insulation is ideal for new-build and refurbishment of flat roofs in the UAE,” said Sarmad Fahkri, Managing Director, Kingspan Insulation. “Expanding our local manufacturing line will enable our customers to have quick and reliable access to insulation for their roofing needs.”
The TR22 is manufactured to the highest standards under a management system certified to ISO 9001: 2008 (Quality Management Systems. Requirements), ISO 14001: 2004 (Environmental Management Systems. Requirements) and BS OHSAS 18001: 2007 (Health and Safety Management Systems. Requirements), the company said through the communiqué.
In addition to the TR22, the Dubai-based facility manufactures the TR26 and TR27.
