Designing to meet NFPA 285 requirements

A building's fire protection begins at the design stage. Making non-combustible stone wool insulation an integral part of your building envelope enhances fire protection and efficiency - without compromising your creativity.

Fire resilience: Safer places to live and work

Building fires today develop 5-10 times faster* than they did 50 years ago due primarily to our increased use of synthetic materials. Fire-resistant stone wool insulation can slow the spread of fire, providing more time for people to escape and fire fighters to arrive.

Energy efficiency: High-performance spaces

Energy efficiency targets in North American building codes are increasing. By designing with the building envelope in mind, using a non-combustible insulation with proper cladding, you can create a high-performing, energy-efficient space.

The benefits of designing with stone wool insulation

Protect combustible elements

Withstanding temperatures of up to 1,000°C, our stone wool products protect combustible elements and steel structures. 

A step towards net zero

Sustainable stone wool insulation contributes to the development of modern net-zero buildings that take as little off the grid as possible.

Slow the spread of fire

Stone wool resists the transfer of heat in a wall assembly that causes layers on the other side to begin burning or smoking. 

Sprinklers, not a trade-off

Sprinklers are an important requirement, but at only 88% effectiveness2, they're an unacceptable trade-off to using non-combustible materials.
