LEED Credit SS 7.2- Heat Island
Kingspan uses paints from Valspar® Cool Color Pallet. Thirty-two
of Valspar's colors meet LEED standards for steep slope roofs,
while three colors meet low slope requirements. By using Valspar,
Kingspan also meets standards for the ENERGY STAR qualified roof
products for reflectivity.
LEED Energy and Atmosphere Prerequisite 1, 2 and
Kingspan insulated panels contribute to all required energy
efficiency prerequisites and minimum energy requirements as well as
optimized energy efficiency. Our concept of Envelope First™ designs
to optimize the energy efficiency of the building envelope and can
effectively reduce the air infiltration rate of typical wall
assemblies by 45%.
LEED Credit EA 1- Optimize Energy
Kingspan insulated panels, in a given whole building design, and
depending on climate zone, contribute to LEED EA points singularly.
Combined with the ECM (Energy Conversation Measures), Kingspan
Insulated Panels can exceed LEED's 48% benchmark.
LEED Credit EA 2 Onsite Renewable Energy
To get to the Net-Zero Energy goal set for 2025, renewable energy
will be required. Kingspan's PV PowerPanel will meet this

LEED Credit IEQ 4.1- Low-Emitting Materials-Adhesives and
Kingspan Insulated Panels uses Tremco JS-773 containing a VOC
content of 151g/L. This satisfies credit IEQ Credit 4.1 as per the
Architectural standard of 250g/L.
LEED Credit IEQ 4.2- Low-Emitting Materials-Paints and
All metal is pre-coated before it is received to Kingspan
LEED Credit ID 1: Innovation in Design
Using Kingspan's Envelope First™ approach, buildings have the
potential to go above and beyond the criteria set by LEED for
energy efficiency. Envelope First strategies can also help
contribute towards Net-Zero Energy buildings which will be required
by 2025 per the U.S. Department of Energy.
