Timber Frame Construction | Kingspan LOGIC

Kingspan LOGIC's closed-panel wall consists of sustainably sourced structural timber insulated with premium performance Kingspan Kooltherm phenolic insulation. The wall system is manufactured with an integrated, reflective, vapour-control layer and service batten. It is delivered complete with an external reflective breather membrane to enhance performance and protect the structure during construction.

Building a Timber Frame House

Developed in-house, Kingspan LOGIC has an inbuilt zone for services such as pipework and electric cabling which allows for future service upgrades, such as extra sockets or networking, to be added without compromising the insulation layer. This therefore maintains the high standard of thermal performance.

Kingspan LOGIC will help manage the extent of renewable energy to a cost-effective level and provides the customer with a high-performance, maintenance-free external wall solution.

Kingspan LOGIC Information

Kingspan Kooltherm
Thermal Bridging
Fire Performance
The provision of a dedicated service void maintains the integrity of both the insulation and airtightness of the wall. The Kingspan LOGIC panel jointing system maintains continuity of airtightness not only at panel-to-panel junctions but also at critical junctions with foundations, intermediate floors and roof. The air leakage barrier dressed into openings allows a simple tape seal to windows, doors and other wall penetrations.
The Kooltherm K-range is an extensive range of premium performance phenolic insulants for roof, wall and floor insulation.

Kingspan Kooltherm K112 Framing Board has a fibre-free rigid thermoset phenolic insulation core faced on both sides with a low-emissivity composite foil facing. By using Kingspan Kooltherm® the thickness of insulation included in external walls can be minimised and the floor space available for use increased.
Kingspan Kooltherm offers the following benefits:

  • With a thermal conductivity of 0.018–0.023 W/m.K these are the most thermally efficient insulation products in common use.
  • The thinnest commonly used insulation products for any specific U–value.
  • Manufactured with a blowing agent that has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low  Global Warming Potential (GWP).
  • The closed-cell structure resists both moisture and water vapour ingress, a problem which can be associated with open-cell materials such as mineral fibre which can result in reduced thermal performance.
  • Unaffected by air infiltration – a problem that can be experienced with mineral fibre and which can reduce thermal performance.
  • Safe and easy to install – fibre-free core.
  • If installed correctly, can provide reliable long term thermal performance over the lifetime of the building.
Thermal bridging from external junctions has recently become an important factor in energy efficiency because the overall insulation and airtightness standards for UK homes are relatively high. To address this, Kingspan LOGIC demonstrates a level of performance that far exceeds SAP guidelines.
The Kingspan LOGIC Building System provides enhanced fire resistance performance over standard ‘open-panel’ timber-frame systems. It achieves this by incorporating Kingspan Kooltherm insulation as an internal overlay which protects the structural frame.

The Kingspan LOGIC Building System exceeds the requirements of Approved Document B Volume 1 with regards to fire resistance when tested in accordance with BS EN 1365:1 1999.

Independent fire assessment confirm that Kingspan LOGIC would achieve 30 minutes of fire resistance using a 12.5 mm standard plasterboard lining. Should any element of your home require a 60-minute structural integrity, this can be achieved with a 15 mm fire-resistant plasterboard.

Self building is one of the most exciting events in a lifetime, but it requires lots of decisions. What's within the walls is just as important as how they look on the outside.
