Insulated Metal Panels using ROCKWOOL Stone Wool provide superior protection and comfort to industrial facilities In Marshall County, Mississippi, ROCKWOOL has built a new 600,000 square foot production facility. The stateof- the-art factory created 150 jobs and represents a $160 million corporate investment. The factory required 240,000 square feet of insulated metal panels for the exterior walls. When ROCKWOOL embarked on this project, it needed to practice what it preached and specify the right building materials. Who better to take on the project than one of our very own customers? Metl-Span was the chosen manufacturer of insulated panels which use ROCKWOOL stone wool as the core. More specifically, Metl-Span’s ThermalSafe® Fire Resistant Insulated Panel was the specified product for this project. The 4” and 7” panels carry a 1 hour and a 2 hour fire rating, respectively.
The stone wool insulation within Metl-Span panels is ROCKWOOL CONROCK® a rigid, stone wool insulation board with excellent fire resistance and thermal properties. It is designed specifically for metal panel systems and is typically used in exterior wall applications. When specified as the core for a panel system, CONROCK becomes a prefabricated OEM solution, providing faster build schedules, occupant safety with outstanding fire ratings and energy savings.
