Established in 1981 Rockwool insulation has become a very popular insulating choice and for good reason. It’s made from volcanic molten rock heated up to over 1500 degrees then spun into long fibres, eventually cooled using mineral oil. Hence the name Rockwool. It is this very manufacturing process that makes rockwool so unique with capabilities almost any other insulation can’t perform.
Why pick Rockwool?
Rockwool offers has great noise defect properties. This is due to the innovative manufacturing process randomising the fibre strands, blocking the sound waves from escaping. Music studios and Road-front-Rooms are often covered in Rockwool.
Rockwool offers high Thermal effectiveness reducing the extra heat sources thus reducing your energy bills. Rockwool’s R-value (thermal measurement) is an astonishing 3.0 to 3.3 inch.
The manufacturing process gives Rockwool great fire capabilities. The stone wool material does not produce dangerous toxins and help protect the building load-bearing from structure. More time to leave the building safely and preserve lives.
Breathability is another positive attribute of rockwool.
The natural origins of the materials means the product is environmentally sustainable reducing carbon footprint. The natural origins also mean it can be recycled reused to produce new insulation used on a new home.
