Kingspan Insulation is pleased to announce an important addition to its portfolio of high-performance solutions with the acquisition of specialist passive fire protection company Fire-Us.
Fire-Us is a UK based business that has been actively manufacturing and supplying passive fire protection products since 2001. As well as a comprehensive range of products, the business offers a variety of services, including training, design solutions, site inspection and reports, all of which complement Kingspan’s own high level of technical support.
With the recognition that areas such as firestopping, seals and cavity barriers form a crucial aspect of safe construction, the move has come as part of Kingspan’s ongoing commitment to provide a holistic approach to the performance of the building envelope, with testing, quality assurance, and integrated system solutions at its heart.
Kingspan Insulation’s UK and Ireland Managing Director, Ralph Mannion, said:
“Kingspan has always advocated a systems-based approach to the development, design and use of its products in both building envelope and building services applications. By bringing the Fire-Us offering under Kingspan’s banner we will be broadening our Technical Insulation offering by building on the range of tested solutions and technical support the industry can draw on.”
Fire-Us will be assimilated into the Kingspan Technical Insulation business (formerly known as Kingspan Industrial Insulation Ltd), and existing customers can be assured that business will be maintained as usual going forward.

Fireus has a long pedigree in the passive fire protection field, with our key directors and advisors sharing more than 50 years industry experience.
Over this time we have accumulated a large repository of knowledge which is the bedrock of our advisory services to customers, and on which our manufacturing and product sourcing operations are based.
Today we continue to build on these foundations, working with building companies and contractors across the UK, and manufacturing and supplying a wide range of accredited and tested products into major construction and refurbishment projects throughout the country.
Our 'Safire' range of firestopping products are a byword within the industry for high perfomance, high reliability products, thoroughly tested both in field service and by independent testing houses Evoxa/Warrington Fire and Chiltern Fire International.
We also thoroughly understand modern building methods and the construction time frames which require rapid order processing and prompt delivery to site to meet the 'window' for firestopping installation. Fireus has the fastest delivery stream in the industry.
Proven, tested products, to site, on time, in budget. That is the aim of Fireus, and our success.
