I thought I would let you know the new Kingspan Benchmark Black Book is now available both in hard copy and online. You can view it online at: kingspanblackbook.com and if of interest can request a hard copy at same link. The Kingspan Benchmark Black Book is an inspiring collection of projects that visually represents the vast design flexibility of architectural insulated metal panels as well as the envelope energy efficiency contributions to requirements of ASHRAE 90.1 regarding continuous insulation. The book also lays out Kingspan Benchmarks’ technical and customer support services with reference to local representatives. Other notable sections include information on uses in different market sectors, thermal performance, specifications, construction details, testing and compliance. Two additional areas, my favorites, are sustainability and envelope first energy efficiency. As a reminder, be sure to see the APP Kingspan developed www.pathtonetzero.com. This is a FREE download for I-Pads, I-Phones and Android. This tool helps design teams better understand the importance of envelope first energy efficiency scenario evaluations.
