6 Benefits of Using Kingspan K5 Insulation for EWI

Kingspan K5 is just one of the brilliant insulations we stock here. While the benefits of installing EWI are numerous, choosing the right insulation material for both your property and your own requirements can be a tricky task. 

At EWI Store, we stock different insulation boards to suit different needs.  So, we’re going to take a look at six key benefits of choosing Kingspan insulation boards for your EWI system!

Benefits of K5 Kingspan

1. High compressive strength – Kingspan boards are known for their high compressive strength. The boards, therefore, have an excellent level of impact resistance, so if your building is in a high-traffic area or you have children who are likely to kick footballs at your wall then this is a great option!

2. Advanced thermal performance – Kingspan insulation boards offer excellent thermal performance. Compared to EPS, where you would need 90mm to reach building regulations, just 60mm of Kingspan insulation can bring your property in line with regulations.

3. Resistance to Moisture – Another benefit of the phenolic board is that they have a closed-cell structure. This means that water cannot get into the material, thereby reducing the risk of damp and mould growth in your home.

4. Environmentally Friendly – Kingspan K5 insulation is made of high-quality phenolic foam. It’s CFC and HCFC-free and has an ozone depletion potential of zero. The environmental impact of producing the boards is very low.

5. Great fire resistance – Kingspan K5 boards have a class 0 fire rating, defined as ‘medium risk’. K5 boards will prevent the spread of flames and emit low levels of smoke and toxic gasses – they are therefore capable of meeting building regulations.

6. Fantastic for space-saving – Another brilliant advantage to K5 Kingspan is the thin board. This is exceptionally good when installing insulation near narrow pathways, between buildings and under window sills that cannot be extended. Therefore, Ideal for maximising performance without sacrificing too much external space.
