Metal stud walls can be used to separate spaces in commercial buildings such as offices and hospitals – as well as residential constructions like apartment blocks. A metal frame is built to form a partition wall, offering flexibility to the layout of the space. 

Stone wool metal stud wall insulation can improve fire safety, boost energy efficiency and enhance soundproofing capabilities, forming a safe and comfortable living or work environment.

Metal Stud Wall Insulation Products

Why do we need metal stud wall insulation?

A metal stud wall can help achieve an architect’s interior design vision, with the ability to apply plasterboard and paint finishes to suit a room’s aesthetics.  

Effective metal stud wall insulation can act to reduce the sound transfer between neighbouring spaces and minimise the risk of fire spreading. 

This second point is especially important when a metal stud wall is installed adjacent to a designated escape route.

Calculator and savings

Our products are designed to bring comfort and safety to both residential dwellings and commercial buildings through their acoustic absorption and fire resilient properties.

Made from robust stone wool, the insulation will last the lifetime of the building where it is installed – making it a great value investment. The material can also be removed and reused if the property is demolished or renovated.  

The amount of insulation you need will depend on the surface area of the wall and the thickness of the gap being filled.

FAQs

FAQs

How do you insulate metal stud walls?

You can insulate metal stud walls by placing insulation material in the wall, following correct installation guidance. The wall can be filled with stone wool insulation batts, slabs or boards to improve fire resilience and sound reduction capabilities.

How do you attach insulation to metal stud walls?

ROCKWOOL insulation is rigid enough for slabs to be stacked on top of each other without sagging. With a tight fit in-between the studs, a perfect fit can be arranged.
