Vacuspeed Vacuum Insulation Panels feature many Quality Assurance certifications
Quality that speaks for itself.
Vacuspeed® has received many technical approvals and quality certifications across Europe since 2009. These approvals cover various construction applications in the internal and external field and new applications are constantly being added. Effective June 2013, the DIBt issued the European Technical Approval (ETA) for Vacuspeed®.

Morgan Advanced Materials, through our Kempten, Germany site, has been an official member of the Güteschutzgemeinschaft Hartschaum e.V. (GSH) [Rigid Foam Quality Assurance Association] since April 2008. Renowned vacuum insulation panel manufacturers, in addition to suppliers of barrier films and raw materials, have joined together in this quality assurance association with the aim of guaranteeing quality. Hence, Morgan Advanced Materials is subject to very stringent quality criteria, specifically in the area of the products which are sold in the construction industry.
In addition to the national an European technical approval and likewise the RAL quality mark and the Ü mark for external monitoring, Morgan Advanced Materials is certified according to the ISO 9001 quality management system and the ISO 14001 environment management system.
Effective and economical – Vacuspeed® beats conventional insulating materials in many areas:
- markedly greater insulation performance for even better results in the energy balance
- considerably thinner superstructures for sensible, constructive solutions relating to building
- very rapid ex warehouse availability
- a sophisticated grid system for on-site adaptation
- markedly less planning effort; elaborate laying plans and position lists are dispensed with
- an ingenious packaging system
- for convenient handling during transport, storage and on the construction site
- multi-layer installation concept for even greater efficiency
- tried and trusted technology with technical approval
- guaranteed quality by RAL quality mark

Environmental Product Declaration (EPD): Already in the beginning of the 18th century for the first time the term “sustainability” came up connected with the lack of wood in the range of forestry. The general meaning of sustainability is the balance between consumption and regeneration of resources. Sustainable building, where aspects of economy, ecology and sociality in all phases of the lifetime of a building are considered well-balanced, is up to date a basic principle at the construction of such buildings.
This is the aim, Morgan Advanced Materials with its high efficient insulation materials pursues. Vacupor® vacuum insulation panels have a general approval for the building industries since 2007. They are made for getting the highest possible insulation with the lowest possible thickness. Not only the performance of a product must be observed, but also the manufacturing must be considered in terms of sustainability. Only having a closer look on all aspects of a product, a serious and ecological evaluation of a building can be done.
The Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) is the base of data for that kind of evaluation. Currently, this is part of a new European norming project: “sustainability for buildings”. Due to the fact, that EPDs are based on ISO-norms, they are adjusted of international aspects. Hence, they are adapted as a confirmation for environmental demands of public markets.
The declaration gives answers about consumptions of energy and resources and a overview how Vacupor® vacuum insulation panels behave in relation to greenhouse effect, acidification, overfertilisation, generating smog and destroying of the ozone layer. Additionally you can find details about technical aspects and performance characteristics of Vacupor® vacuum insulation panels in the EPD that are needed for an evaluation about the efficiency in the building.
That Environmental Product Declaration gives planers, architects, building companies, property companies, etc. facts about the environmental achievement of Vacupor®, that give the possibility to evaluate the value-added chain from the raw-material to the building with the sense of sustainability.
