Premium performance rigid phenolic insulation from market leaders Kingspan Insulation was chosen for the distinguished Emirates Stadium, home to Arsenal Football Club.
Designed by HOK Sport, the four-tiered bowl stadium has increased seating capacity for Arsenal from 38,000 at Highbury to 60,000, making it the second largest stadium in the Premiership.
There have been a number of football venues built during the past two decades, and this £390 million development is one of the most ambitious to date. The project was completed early and within budget.
Over 7,000 m2 of Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board* was installed as not only was it able to meet the high thermal standards required for the project, but it also addressed the stringent safety requirements of a public building with a Class O / Low Risk fire rated insulation core and negligible smoke obscuration.
Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board is a premium performance rigid phenolic board, designed for use under structural ceilings (soffits) and the lightweight product achieves a thermal conductivity as low as 0.021 W/m.K. The product, which is CFC/HCFC-free and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential, is also unaffected by air movement and is resistant to the passage of water vapour.
Kingspan Insulation offers an extensive range of insulation solutions for both newbuild and refurbishment projects. Specifiers, stockists and contractors are supported with a comprehensive and free technical advisory service.
