The Kirin Insulated Panels come in thickness ranging from 50 to 200 mm, widths of 1000 mm and lengths of up to 11.85 m. Several different options are available for the exposed surface finish of the steel, including both profile and colour.
The Kirin Insulated Panel System has been appraised for use as non-loadbearing internal partition and ceiling systems for buildings within the following scope:
- buildings of importance level 1 to 5 as described by AS/NZS 1170, except that housing and communal residential buildings are excluded; and
- constructed with concrete framing complying with NZS 3101 or steel framing complying with NZS 3404.
The Kirin Insulated Panel System has not been assessed for use where fire rated partitions and ceilings are required.
The structural, fire and thermal design of the Kirin Insulated Panel System for each specific structure is the responsibility of the building designer.
