Insulation ‘key to energy efficiency’
Abu Dhabi, September 4, 2010
Companies save more energy and money while complying with green building codes by increasing the use of quality insulation and solar paneling to tackle greenhouse issues, said an expert.
Kingspan Insulated Panels Middle East General Manager Ali El-Zein recently applauded Abu Dhabi Government’s heightened regulations, while suggesting the ratings system and associated energy savings could be achieved through the use of quality insulation to compliment other building formats for both commercial and residential properties.
“The Abu Dhabi Urban Planning Council’s new code is fantastic news and something which the whole industry is keen to embrace,” said El-Zein.
“Both solar paneling and insulation is increasingly being more valued in this region for the significant impact to energy savings which can be achieved.”
The performance advantages of Kingspan insulated panel systems are well recognised by property investors, building owners, designers and contractors, he added.
Kingspan is working with various Abu Dhabi institutions on a number of projects including government buildings and schools, a company statement said. – TradeArabia News Service
