The Benchmark Karrier Panel System is an alternative building method to the Benchmark Connect system and is a unique insulated panel that has been specifically designed and tested to support Benchmark's ranges of façades. It can be laid vertically and horizontally, with or without a top hat section to suit the Benchmark façade. The system provides excellent weather resistance, thermal, acoustic, fire and structural performance. The Benchmark Karrier Panel is a metal faced insulated panel that makes the building watertight, removing the façade from the critical path and enabling internal fit out to start sooner.

Benefits:

  • A wide range of through fix and secret fix Benchmark façades is available.
  • Multiple size façade finishes, very low limitations.
  • Suitable for buildings of any height.
  • Simple and fast to construct.
  • Easily accommodates openings, penetrations and complex façades.
  • Simple integration with doors, windows, glazing, louvres and traditional construction materials.
  • Lifetime insulation continuity, thermal performance and airtightness (less than 5 m³/hr/m²) certainty.
  • Independently tested system, including CWCT external building envelope.
  • Available with the Total Benchmark Guarantee.
  • Manufactured and supplied under a quality system certified to BS EN ISO 9001: 2000.
  • Manufacturing plants are ISO 14001 (Environmentally) accredited.
