Keeping the heat in – from the top down

It’s a well-known fact that heat rises. And given roofs form the highest part of the building envelope, they inevitably become a potential major source of heat loss. Regardless of building type, whether residential or commercial, effective insulation of the roof is crucial to reduce energy consumption.  When designing new developments, the insulation treatment of a roof should be considered holistically alongside the wall specifications. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation will provide a highly effective acoustic, thermal and fire protection solution.

Not your average insulation

Double-duty with dual density

ROCKWOOL has pioneered innovative Dual Density technology through a specialized manufacturing process. Comprised of a high-density outer layer and a lower-density sub-layer, Dual Density products provide compressive resistance, excellent sound absorbency and many other benefits for different applications.

ROCKWOOL Stone Wool insulating roof boards – a comprehensive thermal, sound and fire safe solution

Our environment is changing – Urban centers are growing, extreme weather systems are more frequent, wildfire urban interface zones are expanding, and there is demand for greater performance of a buildings thermal envelope. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation rises to these challenges, providing superior acoustic absorption, robustness that withstands severe hail, non-combustibility to protect and maintain the building envelop, and consistent thermal performance that can be counted on for the life for product. Harness the power of stone and meet the challenges of modern living.
