System Overview

K-Series has been specifically formulated for the Australian market to create a complete external insulation cladding system for projects requiring a super-high performance architectural finish. As a modern solution, K-Series addresses complex design issues with environmental responsibility. Powered by Kooltherm panels from Kingspan Insulation and Masterwall’s innovation and technology, K-Series is designed as a complete system with a ‘whole-of-envelope’ approach that delivers superior insulative performance over other traditional materials. No other system can achieve better thermal and fire performance with equivalent thicknesses of cladding. K-Series is suitable for both residential and commercial buildings, offering architects and designers the opportunity to achieve great performance with total design freedom. K-Series addresses the increasing concerns about poor weather tight building techniques incorporating design details to ensure long term durability.
