Over 1300 m2 of Kingspan Kooltherm FM duct insulation has been installed as part of the iconic new extension to Tate Modern in London. Named the Switch House, the 64.5 m-high tower adjoins Tate Modernís existing home with the former Bankside Power Station to provide over 5000 m2 of new exhibition space over 10 levels.

The insulation installed is 40 mm thick and has been developed to provide premium performance. It comprises a fibre-free rigid thermoset phenolic insulation core, which is Class 0 as defined by Building Regulations. It is externally faced with an aluminium vapour-barrier foil and internally faced with glass tissue

Its rigid nature ensures that the specified insulation thickness is maintained at the corners and can help to create a continuous and fully sealed vapour barrier.
