Kingspan Insulation has an important addition to its portfolio of high-performance solutions with the acquisition of specialist passive fire protection company Fire-Us.

Fire-Us is a UK based business that has been actively manufacturing and supplying passive fire protection products since 2001. As well as a comprehensive range of products, the business offers a variety of services, including training, design solutions, site inspection and reports, all of which complement Kingspan’s own high level of technical support.

With the recognition that areas such as firestopping, seals and cavity barriers form a crucial aspect of safe construction, the move has come as part of Kingspan’s ongoing commitment to provide a holistic approach to the performance of the building envelope, with testing, quality assurance, and integrated system solutions at its heart.

Kingspan Insulation’s UK and Ireland Managing Director, Ralph Mannion, said:

“Kingspan has always advocated a systems-based approach to the development, design and use of its products in both building envelope and building services applications. By bringing the Fire-Us offering under Kingspan’s banner we will be broadening our Technical Insulation offering by building on the range of tested solutions and technical support the industry can draw on.”

Fire-Us will be assimilated into the Kingspan Technical Insulation business (formerly known as Kingspan Industrial Insulation Ltd).
