Why stone wool for your continuous insulation application?
Thermal Performance – Reduces thermal bridging through wood framing, leading to a higher-performing building envelope.
Moisture Management – Vapor permeable enabling superior drying potential within the wall system, minimizing the risk water accumulation and moisture related issues
Fire Safety – Non-combustible, stone wool can withstand temperatures of approximately 2,150°F (1177°C).
Sound absorption – Stone wool provides excellent sound absorption and reduces sound transmission from outside to inside, as well as from room to room or floor to floor. That helps contributes to quieter, more productive environments.
Comfort, health and wellbeing – With excellent thermal performance, sound attenuation, and resistance to mold and mildew (protecting air quality), stone wool insulation contributes to greater occupant comfort in buildings, better wellbeing and better productivity.
Certified, Tested, Transparent – Transparency is an important part of ROCKWOOL’s commitment to people and the planet. ROCKWOOL labelling and information practices ensure that homeowners, builders, contractors, architects and designers feel confident in selecting, installing and using ROCKWOOL products—informing individuals on product composition, production processes and benefits to health, wellbeing and the environment. ROCKWOOL products are tested and certified by third-party laboratories in a wide variety of applications, verifying characteristics, performance and lifecycle information.
Sustainable and Circular – Since buildings account for a major share of energy demand and carbon emissions, ROCKWOOL believes the building sector must play a major role in helping communities adapt to and mitigate climate change impacts. As such, it is committed to sustainability and circularity. ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation products are made from natural, abundant and recycled raw materials, which can be recycled again and again to make new stone wool insulation. ROCKWOOL is a net carbon negative company, in that over the lifetime of its use, the building insulation ROCKWOOL sold in 2020 will save 100 times the carbon emitted in its production. ROCKWOOL products are also exceptionally durable, maintaining their properties and performance more than 55 years after their initial installation. This durability contributes to resource efficiency in the building sector and in manufacturing. At ROCKWOOL, sustainability and accountability go hand in hand. The company has set measurable and achievable sustainability goals, including cutting factory absolute greenhouse gas emissions by 38 percent by 2034. ROCKWOOL’s sustainability efforts also support 10 out of 17 United Nations sustainability goals (SDGs) that endeavor to improve quality of life and wellbeing of people, while protecting the planet.
