Kingspan UNIDEK aero comprises structural insulated panels (SIPs) with unique structural rib reinforcements for use in pitched roof applications.
Kingspan UNIDEK aero panels comprise a high performance rigid graphite coated expanded polystyrene (EPS) insulation core, manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP), fully bonded between two 3.2 mm layers of P5 particleboard. The insulation core is manufactured to accommodate the 18mm x 45mm C18 grade timber structural ribs.
The EPS insulation core is manufactured to BS EN 13163:2008 (Thermal insulation products for buildings – Factory made products of expanded polystyrene (EPS) – Specification) and is fully bonded to the facings and structural timber ribs during manufacture.
Kingspan UNIDEK aero can also be manufactured with a 12 mm thick upper facing and 8mm lower facing to provide increased panel strength and stiffness, allowing the potential for greater clear spans, for example up to 7 m.
Kingspan UNIDEK aero can be provided with 20 x 30 mm C18 treated softwood timber counter battens bonded to the top surface of the panel for pitched roof applications.
