Kingspan Insulation, part of London Stock Exchange-listed buildings materials company Kingspan Group, has opened  a manufacturing line for the production of UL 181-listed Palduct phenolic pre-insulated duct panels at its site in Dubai Investment Park (DIP) 2.

UL 181 for duct panels represents a standard for safety and covers materials in the fabrication of air duct systems.

In a statement, the company said that in order to receive UL listing, its products were tested for flame-resistance, burning, mould growth, humidity, impact, and leakage.

The core of Kingspan Palduct panels comprises fibre-free and closed-cell insulation, which has been manufactured with a chloroflurocarbon-free blowing agent that has zero ozone depletion and low global warming potential.

Chief executive officer of Kingspan Group, Gene Murtagh, said the development was “one of the largest manufacturing facilities” for UL 181-listed duct panels in the world.
