Welcome to the latest issue of Kingspan news!
We like to bring you news about recent projects where our products have been used but often we visit older projects to see how our products have stood the test of time.
Over two decades ago, The Kingspan KoolDuct System was installed at Llyfrgell Genedlaethol Cymru (the National Library of Wales) and on inspection was found to still be delivering excellent thermal comfort, humidity control and ventilation performance.
Since it was first opened in 1911, the library has been regularly extended to provide more space for its collections. One of the most significant expansions was completed in 1996 with the opening of the Third Library Building, offering office and server space, along with storage facilities for many of the library’s most valuable materials.
The Kingspan KoolDuct System was fitted during the building’s construction in 1995. The HVAC specification took full advantage of the system’s slimline design, concealing it beneath corridor floors. In addition, The Kingspan KoolDuct System was also used within the main ground floor plant room and as part of four risers, traveling from the lower ground floor to the fourth floor. No issues and no relevant maintenance have ever been recorded with the ductwork and a recent inspection showed that the system was in good condition and performing as expected.
