One range that is sure to make an impact during the event is the new Kingspan Architectural Wall Panel’s Curve Wall and Louvre Wall. These are secret fixed and specially designed to be aesthetically pleasing for horizontal and vertical applications, and can be simply integrated with doors, windows, glazing, louvres and traditional construction materials.
Ali El Zein, general manager for the Middle East, Kingspan Insulated Panels, said: “We chose to launch our first base in the Middle East during The Big 5 2009 and it seemed fitting to introduce some new products in 2010. Having now firmly established ourselves here in the region, we are now introducing further additions to our local portfolio and we look forward to doing some business this week.”
Other products that will be on display from Kingspan will be its Top Span and Top Deck Roof Panels. The Top Deck is a single component factory pre-engineered roof deck comprising a high performance single-ply PVC membrane which provides fast build, single-fix installation with a unique helical self-coring ‘one-step fix’ fastener solution.
Top Span is an insulated roof deck combining a structural deck, insulation and a metal top sheet into one product. Designed to support a choice of site applied standing seam or membrane finishes, Topspan provides a clear span capability of up to eight metres, and is faster to install than alternative built-up roof deck systems. The internal face of the deck is pre-finished with a fresh white inner finish, providing a smooth clean interior appearance.
El Zein concluded: “It has been a difficult year for the construction industry, regionally and internationally, but the prospects for the industry, and for Kingspan in the Gulf, are positive.”
