Primary energy demand: Based on a school in Boston with 3” panel compared to a ASHRAE 2004 baseline primary energy demand for fossil fuel is 4,94o MJ per 100 sq ft. Using Kingspan IMPs will save 460,000 MJ over the life of that building.
Reducing energy costs & shrinking impact
Today’s building management professionals and owners have embraced the notion of building envelope performance. Driving this are mandates for green buildings, a focus on energy efficiency and recognized ROI. A better building envelope offers healthier working environments, significant energy cost savings, reduced carbon footprint and contributes towards Net Zero Energy building targets. The superior thermal performance of Kingspan’s insulated metal panels enables building owners to meet these demands.
Get the White Paper compiled by AEC (Architectural Energy Corporation) that compares three buildings; school, office and warehouse, were simulated in four locations. Baseline buildings for each location, which are compliant with ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2004 and 90.1- 2007, were developed. Then the envelope was improved with the insulated metal panel wall and roof systems.
Typical energy conservation measures, which varied by building type, were then applied, and finally photovoltaic arrays were sized to achieve energy savings of 30%, 50%, 70% and 100% over the baseline buildings.

Known as ‘manufacturing energy input’, the primary energy demand savings provided by Kingspan insulated metal panels panels outweigh the energy used to manufacture them by up to 93 times, calculated over a 25-year service life.
