As part of the Design Wall Series, this stylish, sleek, laser flat panel has a unique range of design features that allow maximum design flexibility in the creation of a truly bespoke system.
These new features will enable you to create an illusion of varying panel widths, allow you to alter the joint reveal and offers a wide range of vertical joint details.
With the development of the Evolution range, insulated panels have now evolved to provide the aesthetics and architectural detailing required today but without the complexity.

Hot-dip zinc coated steel with a total area weight of 275 g/m2 of zinc, according to EN 10147 : 2000 and a minimum yield strength of 280 MPa. The standard gauge is 0.70mm on the external and 0.50mm on the internal side.
Rigid FireSafe IPN closed-cell insulation is the standard core used, made to a non-deleterious specification with an Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) of zero. Kingspan FireSafe IPN insulation is CFC / HCFC-free.
Kingspan Benchmark insulation cores provide superior thermal performance with tested U-values. Most importantly, the insulation is on the exterior of the building structure to provide the best possible thermal envelope by reducing thermal bridging typical of cavity wall systems. In addition, the panels feature excellent insulation core-to-core contact, which provides an unbroken thermal shield against heat transfer. The combination of the vapour diffusionclosed external facing with a closed-cell PIR / IPN rigid urethane core achieves a high insulation performance. This is currently the best performance of all well-known insulating systems in the construction industry.
Kingspan Benchmark façade panels have a minimum single weighted sound reduction index Rw of 25dB.
Kingspan Benchmark panels consist of two metal faces positioned on either side of a core that is a thermally insulating material, which is firmly bonded to both faces so that the three components act compositely when under load. The individual layers by themselves have limited flexural rigidity and cannot therefore bear loads. But by combining the two outer surface layers with the core, a shear rigid composite section is formed.
Kingspan Benchmark façade systems are widely recognised by investors, property insurers, designers and constructors for their superior fire performance and reducing fire risk. The systems are tested and approved to European and country specific standards, complying with all relevant building regulations. Please refer to specific product data sheets for detailed reaction to fire and fire resistance characteristics.
Superior Airtightness and Weathertightness
One of the biggest sources of building heat loss (or heat gain) is air leakage, i.e., ‘leaky buildings’. All Kingspan Benchmark façade systems are rigorously tested to ensure that they remain both airtight and weathertight over the lifecycle of a building.
Field service support
Our field services team provides off- and on-site installation training and support in order to guide our installers to deliver ‘in-place’ products that fulfill customers’ requirements and expectations. We offer a site inspection service throughout the construction process as well as advice on mechanical handling solutions.
Kingspan Total Benchmark Guarantee
All systems are available with the Total Benchmark Guarantee, offering thermal and structural performance guarantee.
Kingspan Benchmark insulated panels have been tested and comply with National Building Regulations and standards. Panels with FireSafe IPN core are classified as B-s1,d0, according to EN 13501-1. Additionally, FireSafe Insurer Approved Systems are available.
