QuadCore - For Insulation Core Technology
From time to time, there is a breakthrough that changes our thinking about what is possible. When we challenged our innovation lab to push their performance even higher, they did. This is not about tweaking an existing formula to make it better. This is somethirg completely new - a quantum leap that takes our products to a fresh level. QuadCore now sets the standard for insulation core technology. A standard that raises the bar for the whole industry. To the power of four.
Achieving Thermal Excellence
The first area of focus for any insulated panel system must be how it can help to deliver an energy efficient building envelope. Quadcore™ has a lambda value of just 0.018 W/mK - the best in the industry. It can achieve U-values as low as 0.08 W/m2K. Put simply, we're talking about a 20% thermal improvement over a standard PIR core.
Pushing the Boundaries
We set our innovation labs the task - to push the boundaries of innovation - They delivered. Through an innovation breakthrough they created QuadCore. The answer for high-performance buildings that don't want to compromise.
Standing in the Face of Fire
It goes without saying that we take the fire performance of our products very seriously. QuadCore™ is the first closed-cell insulated panel core to be certified to FM 4882 for use in smoke sensitive occupancies. It achieves a reaction to fire of B-s1,d0 to EN 13501-1, the lowest smoke emissions possible, and offers fire resistance of up to one hour insulation and three hours integrity to EN 13501-2.
Lowering Environmental Impact
From production to construction, environmental considerations always run high on our list. The micro-cell structure at the heart of QuadCore™ technology is more resource-efficient, reducing impact right at the point of manufacture. The product itself helps to achieve higher ratings in building assessment methodologies such as BREEAM and LEED. In fact, our studies show that a QuadCore building can get six more BREEAM Ene01 credits than a typical retail or distribution warehouse.
With any new development, there must be some way of assuring the market that it will work. Which is why QuadCore™ is backed by the industry’s first 40-year guarantee covering both structural and thermal performance.
