The 2008 BRE Green Guide Summary Ratings for walls and roofs constructed using the Kingspan TEK Building System (in a 142 mm thickness), as a result of its comparatively low environmental impact, are heavily influenced by the external cladding specification. Wall and roof elements constructed using the system typically achieve A+ or A Summary Ratings. This can help achieve credits in the Code for Sustainable Homes section Mat 1 and BREEAM section Mat 1.
The environmental impact of the insulation core of Kingspan TEK Building System and Kingspan TEK Cladding panels is incorporated into its elemental Green Guide Summary Ratings because it provides a significant structural function. Therefore, the Green Guide Summary Rating of the insulation core of Kingspan TEK Building System panels can be taken as being A+. This can help achieve credits in BREEAM section Mat 4.
