More than ever, owners today want buildings that will bring a strong return on their investment. As the design process begins, the checklist starts literally at the top. Due to the fact that energy escapes in an upward direction, the specification of roofing components is crucial.

One roofing system that stands out is the KingZip Insulated Standing Seam Roof by Kingspan Insulated Panels—North America. The product provides three critical factors that owners are demanding. It delivers excellent thermal performance with a high R-value, an airtight roof system that provides the best building envelope, and components that can earn LEED and Path to Net Zero credits. Formed with insulated metal panels (IMPs), this roof provides these benefits in a way far superior to standard built-up roofing systems.

Short and long-term returns on investment are realized because the thermal performance of the panels leads to energy cost savings of as much as 30 percent over traditional multi-part built-up roofs. This is a result of the excellent thermal performance provided by each panel’s polyiso core.

Durability is another deciding factor in the decision to specify an insulated standing seam roof. These panels last as long as the service life of a standard commercial building. They have extraordinary outdoor corrosion resistance and, unlike conventional roof systems, won’t crack and peel when exposed to the sun and rough weather. The product also eliminates the costs of re-shingling or having a bitumen roof system replaced. Made with recaptured low-weight metals, its IMPs weigh only 3 pounds per square foot, and that reduces transport costs and installation energy. These panels are completely recyclable, which offers multiple end-of-life reuse options.
