Located next to Angel Stadium of Anaheim in Orange County, CA, a Public Storage Corporation facility displays metal panels from Kingspan Insulated Panels.
Kingspan's Modesto, CA plant manufactured the Centurywall™ 2.5” thick architectural insulated panels that cover the 40,191 sq. ft. building. The combination of panels provides a highly aesthetic exterior skin, high R-values and air & water barrier all in one type of product, all installed by one trade.
The building utilizes a polyurethane-core panel system that provides an R-value of 23 across the entire exterior of the building. From the outside of the framing, there was continuous ridge insulation with no breaks or voids, allowing the owner to use less claimant control equipment. The panel surfaces were exposed on both sides of the framing which provided the corporate colors externally and an attractive liner internally.
The Centurywall panel system is air and water tight. No membranes are required (i.e. panel on frame direct). Seamless integration with window systems makes them both airtight and watertight as well, maintaining a lower energy cost. The panels were factory fabricated which means there was no field cutting of material. This eliminated the field scrap and and potential compromise in the performance integrity of the products.
Because of its location next to the Anaheim Angels baseball stadium, the building’s aesthetics were given careful consideration. The entire building, wrapped in horizontal Centurywall panels, is customized with its corporate colors. Public Storage Corp. has said it will continue the design template for future projects.
The self-storage industry operates on fast track construction schedules, requiring half of the normal time for construction compared to standard projects. Clearly a setback in panels would equal a loss in revenue. Kingspan Insulated Panels met the challenge.
“This was a project that was put on a pressing schedule,” explained Rachel Scholan, Kingspan Marketing Manager. “Kingspan assured the building was completed in three months and open for business, something much faster than typical construction projects.”
Kiwi II Construction from Murrieta, CA, and the architectural firm, James Goodman, from San Juan Capistrano, CA were involved in the project.
