In addition to its new base in the region, the company also launches a new range of panels, the PowerPanel. This new system uses the latest photovoltaic (PV) technology, which generates clean, inflation proof electricity, reduces energy costs and can generate electricity to be fed into the national grid. The system comes in three different product offerings, including polycrystalline silicon modules for roofs and walls and a thin film solar laminate for roofs.
The new PowerPanel is a further addition to Kingspan’s commitment to the environment, an issue it hopes to help raise awareness of in the region and demonstrate how the construction industry in the Middle East can reduce its negative impact on the environment.
As part of the Kingspan Group, which was originally founded in the UK in the 1960s, Kingspan Insulated Panels officially opens its office in the Jafza Industrial Area of Dubai, headed up by new general manager, Ali El-Zein.
In addition to the new PowerPanel, the company will also launch its extensive range of insulated panels that help to create functional buildings that are aesthetically pleasing, energy efficient, safe, cost effective and sustainable. Product offerings include The Longspan wall panel, which can span up to 8.2m long and allows accelerated build speed and enhanced aesthetics; the Therma range, which includes the Thermatile, a unique façade system which offers increased visual options and flexibility with the use of ceramic tiles in a tile hanging application; there is also the Controlled Environment System that provides high performance temperature and hygiene safe controlled environments, ideal for storage and coldstore facilities.
Ali El-Zein, General Manager of Kingspan Insulated Panels, said:
“This expansion has been carefully planned to ensure that we are fully prepared to enter into the Middle East market. Kingspan has firmly established itself as the leading manufacturer and supplier of insulated panels in the UK, but we are aware that we are not yet well known here in the region. That is why it was important for us to have an on the ground base where customers have direct access to our unrivalled knowledge, experience and support. Launching in the region with such a revolutionary new product to offer highlights Kingspan’s dedication to developing technology in line with customer requirements and market needs.”
