Because a well-designed building should make the world a safer, more beautiful place.
As an architect, you pride yourself on a well-designed building. One that's inspirational and livable. Our non-combustible insulation paired with a cladding that brings your vision to life helps to create safer, more energy-efficient environments – without ever sacrificing your design freedom.
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.

NFPA 285 is a flame propagation test that measures the ability of an exterior wall to resist fire spread. Watch the video to learn more.
Building fires today develop 5-10 times faster1 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.Learn more
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.Learn more
Withstanding temperatures of up to 1,000°C, our stone wool products protect combustible elements and steel structures.
Sustainable stone wool insulation contributes to the development of modern net-zero buildings that take as little off the grid as possible.
Stone wool resists the transfer of heat in a wall assembly that causes layers on the other side to begin burning or smoking.
Sprinklers are an important requirement, but at only 88% effectiveness2, they're an unacceptable trade-off to using non-combustible materials.
Fire and water resistant, ROCKWOOL CAVITYROCK® products are semi-rigid, stone wool insulation boards designed for exterior cavity and rainscreen applications.
Vapor permeable ROCKWOOL COMFORTBOARD™ 110 is a rigid, high-density, stone wool insulation board used as exterior continuous insulation in commercial applications.
Containing a fire once it begins
Every medium- and high-rise building should only be clad and insulated with non-combustible* materials.
Toxic smoke inhalation causes more fire-related deaths than do the fires themselves.
