ROCKWOOL stone wool roof products can provide the performance required for many standing seam metal roofing assemblies. The high density and non-directional fibers of ROCKWOOL roof boards can reduce rain driven and impact noise, which can be a big concern with many metal roofing systems.
ROCKWOOL stone wool roof boards combine thermal performance and dimensional stability to increase the performance of many Multi-Ply or built-up roof systems (BUR). ROCKWOOL roof products help to reduce gaps, system movement, stresses on the roofing membrane and can extend the service life of the roof.
Single ply roof systems can provide an easy to install, seamless roof assembly. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation roof products that can be installed under many single ply membranes. Using ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation will allow for added fire resistance, dimensional stability, and acoustic control in the roof assembly.
The pitched roof or attic area of a building can be insulated in many ways. Based on local building traditions, requirements and regulations in combination with the usage of the loft.
Effective pitched roof insulation offers additional thermal comfort, sound protection and exceptional fire resistance, making it ideal for residential and commercial properties.
Our products are made from premium-quality stone wool, with solutions available for pitched roof insulation below, between and over rafters, as well as insulation that is placed in the loft level. We offer high-performance systems and solutions for homes and businesses.
Installing floor insulation can improve energy efficiency - and reduce unwanted noise levels from spaces above by up to eight times.
Our range contains dual and mono density stone wool products, resulting in an impressive thermal performance that prevents heat escaping through floor and ceiling spaces.
Ground to floor solutions and effective concrete floor insulation prevent unnecessary heat loss in buildings. They can help to maintain a comfortable temperature and improve energy efficiency.
Without under slab insulation, the direct contact from the floor to the ground makes it an easy route winter cold to get in.
Insulation can be installed under concrete slabs to improve thermal efficiency, with around 30 percent of all heat in homes lost through the floor.
A exposed ground floor is one of the leading causes of heat loss within older homes. But there is a way to prevent energy loss and keep out the cold.
Exposed floor insulation can help to ensure a room retains heat and is energy efficient. Read on to find out all about our applications - and everything else you need to know.
Sound and heat can easily transfer between rooms and dwellings in the same building through separating floors. Whether in a block of commercial offices or residential apartments, this often creates unwanted noise pollution and increased energy consumption.
Intermediate floor insulation is designed to tackle this directly by improving acoustic properties, while reducing heat loss and energy use. It can prevent heat penetrating through to upper levels, and also improve the fire resistance of structures too.
In both residential and commercial properties, this helps create a much more comfortable living and working environment for occupants and tenants.
Ceiling insulation can help to create a more comfortable internal environment for those working or living in commercial and residential buildings.
An essential part of any building structure - whether applied to suspended ceilings, basement and cellar ceilings or car parks - it's vital for retaining heat, reducing sound transfer and preventing fire from spreading.
Effective insulation plays an important role in making urban parking garages and car parks more energy-efficient and less disruptive to their surroundings.
To save space in cities and towns, parking garages are now commonly designed to sit below residential and commercial buildings, which means the properties above can be susceptible to heat loss through the floor - as well as noise from the vehicles below.
This is especially true when you consider that car parks are constructed to deal with large volumes of traffic in wide open spaces.
ROCKWOOL's parking garage and car park ceiling solutions - including stone wool below concrete soffit insulation - are designed to offer the utmost protection in terms of fire safety, thermal efficiency and acoustic performance.
Suspended ceiling insulation panels, slabs or rolls can enhance thermal performance, reduce sound transfer and reduce the risk of fire spreading.
Suspended ceilings are normally applied beneath concrete floors. They serve many purposes in commercial and residential properties - covering up pipes and air ducts, creating space for light points and forming an aesthetically pleasing finish.
With effective installation, the gap between this construction and the intermediate floor above can be filled with insulation material - whether you have a wooden or metal frame in place.
A suspended ceiling is in many ways considered an acoustic ceiling made from a metal grid with ceiling tiles. Rockfon provides a full portfolio, which also includes solutions for commercial buildings, where Rockfon ceiling solutions are often used to combine the visual and acoustic aspects.
Basement and cellar ceiling insulation is essential for newly renovated below ground spaces, protecting them from heat loss and nuisance noise.
Using slab products that are fixed to the underside of the floor above, these spaces can be transformed into comfortable living areas for occupants.
Once installed, stone wool insulation can also improve fire performance - crucial for private housing and public underground spaces such as parking garages, where insulation can also be applied.
Internal wall insulation can be used in both commercial and residential properties to improve indoor comfort and boost energy efficiency.
There are various methods of adding insulation for inside walls - each designed to reduce heat loss, increase acoustic performance or raise fire safety.
Partition walls that separate two rooms are usually constructed with a wooden or metal frame - also known as a stud wall.
Underground spaces with a soil-facing wall require basement wall insulation to protect the room from heat loss and moisture build-up.
ROCKWOOL solutions can be applied to these kinds of walls in domestic housing - and are ideal for underground flats, cellars and conversions below street level.
ROCKWOOL party wall insulation can reduce heat loss in detached properties and flats.
Made from natural stone wool, our products help to regulate temperatures and reduce the impact of noise from neighbouring properties.
External walls, together with the roof, form the envelope of any building, protecting everyone and everything inside.
They also cover the largest surface area, making them a prime area for preventing heat loss. The main place where heat is lost is by escaping through poorly insulated walls.
With ROCKWOOL external wall insulation, living spaces can be made warm, energy efficient and compliant with modern building standards - as well as gaining additional benefits in terms of acoustics, indoor comfort and fire safety.
Buildings constructed since the early-to-mid 20th century typically have an outer wall with a cavity. Originally designed to better prevent water from coming through, since the 1960s and 70s these have often been filled with insulation - primarily for thermal performance.
Cavity wall Insulation can bring additional benefits by reducing carbon emissions - and improving health and indoor comfort.
Without proper insulation, properties will lose more heat in moderate and cold climates - resulting in greater energy use to warm them effectively. In hot climates, heat will easily come in, increasing the need for cooling. This all leads to higher energy bills.
Timber frame construction is an efficient and flexible build method. Compared to traditional masonry, it can accommodate more timber frame insulation in between the wooden studs, as in a cavity.
A continuous layer on the outside provides extra performance, while a layer on the inside gives additional room for electrical wiring. This helps create safe, efficient and positive living and working environments.
Metal wall systems are used extensively in the construction of industrial and commercial buildings around the world. They offer a cost-effective, fast and modern method for creating constructions such as storage outlets, warehouses and shops.
To keep operating costs and construction time down, you can install metal wall insulation to improve thermal, acoustic and fire protection performance. This can also enhance occupancy comfort and help ensure local building standards and regulations are met.
ROXUL SAFE™ 55 & 65
Cladding facade systems - incorporating effective insulation together with external cladding - are a key tool to ensure a building prevents as much energy loss as possible.
The use of stone wool insulation also enhances protection against fire damage and outside noise.
Consisting of a multi-layer solution which ends with a ‘second skin', these systems are created using cladding products, insulation slabs, and the creation of an air gap that can be ventilated or not.
Vertical external cladding acts as a filter - and physical border - between the building envelope and the outdoor environment. Facade cladding is not only used to protect a building against environmental conditions, but also to determine its appearance.
First explored and tested in the early 20th century in Europe, this ‘second skin' for structures creates a chimney effect, which contributes to elimination of moisture and regulation of heat - that can otherwise affect the building in hot or cold weather.
These solutions can be used to improve performance of both new and existing buildings, in conjunction with cladding products from ROCKPANEL, part of the ROCKWOOL Group.
HVAC insulation can be used in these systems across large-scale commercial and residential properties, including high-rise offices, apartment blocks, airports, hospitals, warehouse and other industrial facilities, ensuring a comfortable living environment.
Effective insulation is essential for maintaining the correct operating temperature for the different parts of a system - from piping to central heating and air conditioning insulation. As these properties use a lot of energy to create a comfortable climate, working as efficiently as possible is vital.
All ROCKWOOL HVAC insulation material is fully recyclable - whether it's for piping, air conditioning or heating systems. Our products can be easily removed from a building if it is being demolished and recycled back into new products, preventing a significant amount of landfill.
ROCKWOOL fire protection solutions can slow the spread of flames, contain fires locally and stop them from spreading further.
Robust stone wool insulation is therefore a key component in fire-resilient buildings, as its fibres are non-combustible and can resist temperatures above 1,000°C.
Noise pollution can have a significant impact on people's health. Those living and working in cities are especially vulnerable, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO).
Controlling noise levels at the source is not always possible - but quality sound insulation of the building envelope can offer a valuable solution.
Outside noise from traffic or aircraft - for example - can be significantly blocked out by proper installation in the roof or building faCade.
Insulation within a building, meanwhile, can improve privacy and avoid annoyance from sounds in adjacent properties, such as music or footsteps from an apartment above.
Especially useful when installed in separating floors and walls between different spaces in a block of flats or office complex, sound insulation boards, or granulate can be applied to reduce the amount of noise intruding into a living or working environment.
It promotes comfort and privacy, protecting people from ‘outside-to-inside' noise such as traffic, and ‘inside-to-inside' noise from neighbouring dwellings.
Acoustic ceiling insulation is an important consideration for many new builds and renovations - where reducing sound transfer between adjacent spaces helps enrich modern living.
Within a building, it can protect apartments and offices from noise above, as well as insulating those that sit above parking garages from loud vehicle noise below. It can also limit sound passing to and from converted basements in residential properties.
Often installers create a suspended acoustic ceiling In parking garage ceiling applications, stone wool slabs are mechanically fixed to the floor or used as loose panel formwork during concrete pouring.
Noise pollution can be damaging to human health in various ways. According to World Health Organisation (WHO) research, it affects sleep, social productivity and may even lead to hearing loss.
Acoustic floor insulation significantly reduces the impact of noise on building occupants, by cutting sound transfer between neighbouring spaces. Installed on the ground, first floor or intermediate floors of separating flats or offices in the same property, it creates a more comfortable living or working environment.
