Kingspan Tarec Help Dunlop Make Themselves at Home


Dunlop Systems and Components recently moved from its historic Holbrook Lane site to a new 60,000 square foot state of the art manufacturing facility at nearby Prologis Park, Coventry which is benefitting from Kingspan Tarec®’s premium performance Kooltherm® FM Pipe Insulation.

Situated on a 5 acre site, this new facility has achieved an EPC ‘A’ 21 rating and BREEAM 2011 ‘Very Good’ accreditation.

1,000 linear metres of Kingspan Tarec® Kooltherm® FM Pipe Insulation were installed on the on the heating and domestic services pipework as well as on the supply vent ductwork across the building by M&E Contractors, P&R Morson.

Michael Slevin, Senior Contract Manager at P&R Morson commented:

“We were delighted with both the product and service we received from Kingspan Tarec. Their technical assistance with regards to the BREEAM requirements was extremely useful and we experienced a trouble free installation with the product.”

Products from Kingspan Environmental were also used during the construction of this development in conjunction with the Kingspan Tarec® Kooltherm® FM Pipe Insulation as the two systems complement each other.

Kingspan Tarec® Kooltherm® FM Pipe Insulation is FM approved to Approval Standard 4924 and holds a European fire classification of BL-s1,d0. The product’s insulated core is manufactured with a blowing agent which has zero Ozone Depletion Potential (ODP) and low Global Warming Potential (GWP), and it has now been awarded a best possible BRE Green Guide Summary Rating of A+, allowing it to contribute further towards a building’s BREEAM rating. The premium performance of the product is further enhanced with the inclusion of a passivated bore liner which reduces the risks associated with moisture penetration.
