Kingspan TEK Building System

Structural Insulated Panel (SIP) building system
'The Structural Insulated Panels are made up of two OSB/3 (Oriented Strand Board) boards with a zero Ozone Depletion Potential (zero ODP) rigid urethane insulation core. The OSB/3 boards are not bonded to the insulation in a secondary process. They are autohesively bonded to the rigid urethane insulation core during manufacture resulting in superior adhesive strength to the bond between the core and the OSB/3 boards.

This is a process which leads to premium structural properties. The proven combination of OSB/3 boards and the rigid urethane insulation core provides for the extreme resilience of Kingspan TEK Structural Insulated Panels. Thanks to these properties, the Kingspan TEK Building System gives a structure proven performance.

Kingspan TEK Structural Insulated Panels are manufactured at Kingspan Off-Site's state-of–the-art production facility situated in Northern Germany.

The Deutsche Institut für Bautechnik (the German construction industry’s supervisory board) started testing the Kingspan TEK Building System according to stringent German standards in 1993, and in 1995 the System was awarded a Zulassung certificate (the German equivalent of a BBA Certificate). Since 1995, the Deutsche Institut für Bautechnik have continuously monitored test results on the System.'
