Kingspan Kooltherm Insulation at EPL Arsenal’s Emirates Stadium
Premium performance insulation, Kooltherm K10 FM Soffit Board, from Kingspan Insulation was chosen for the distinguished Emirates Stadium, home to the Arsenal Football Club in London, England.
Designed by HOK Sport, the four-tiered bowl stadium has increased seating capacity to 60,000 for Arsenal, making it the second largest stadium in the English Premier League.
There have been a number of soccer venues built in the UK during the past two decades, and this $523 million (£390 million) development is one of the most ambitious to date. The project was completed early and within budget.
Over 75,000 sq ft (7,000 m2) of Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board was installed. 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 fiber-free insulation core that has a fire rating of “low risk” to the Scottish Building Code and negligible smoke obscuration.
Kingspan Kooltherm K10 Soffit Board is a premium performance rigid phenolic insulation board, designed for use under structural ceilings (soffits) and the lightweight product achieves an R-value of 8 per inch. 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 vapor.
