Kingspan - Improving Wellbeing at a Flagship Hospital with the Help of Kingspan

Kooltherm Pipe Insulation - Kooltherm Duct Insulation - Wrexham Maelor

Kingspan Kooltherm pipe insulation

Wrexham Maelor is one of the busiest hospitals in North Wales, with a catchment area of over half a million people. £3 million was invested into the site to create a state-of-the-art modular building, delivered by MTX, comprising day case and endoscopy theatres, allowing the hospital to provide exceptional care.

With the NHS' commitment to improving efficiency of services, the performance of products was crucial. The premium building service specification included the installation of 2,000 lm of Kooltherm Pipe Insulation and 400 m² of Kooltherm Duct Insulation by thermal insulation contractor, Midland Premier Insulations Limited (MPI).

Scott McCaskie, Director for MTX, discussed the project: "Given the environment, safety of patients is a priority. Kingspan products were selected for this project as, in addition to their thermal performance which would support the maintenance of comfortable temperatures, they could also deliver excellent levels of indoor air quality with their fibre-free insulation cores."
