Start your project with ROCKWOOL, the fire-resistant insulation that’s made from stone. Home owners, contractors and builders rely on ROCKWOOL for no-compromise insulation solutions that help save energy and create quiet and safer homes.
Whether you’re renovating an existing room, expanding your living space with an addition or building a brand new home or cottage, choosing the right insulation for the project is extremely important. Although insulation will represent only a small fraction of your budget, the choices you make will affect the quality of your finished project and the ongoing costs of heating and cooling your home. Additionally, your decision will have an impact on the environment.
ROCKWOOL’s line of fire-resistant insulation for residential use includes both thermal and soundproofing products:
ROCKWOOL COMFORTBATT® is thermal insulation for use in exterior walls, attics and crawlspaces. It provides indoor comfort and energy savings all year ‘round.
ROCKWOOL SAFE’n’SOUND® is soundproofing insulation for use in interior walls, ceilings and floors to help create a quieter home.
The advantages of ROCKWOOL make your insulation choice easy.
ROCKWOOL insulation goes beyond what most conventional insulations offer. The main ingredient of ROCKWOOL insulation is stone. As a result, it provides some very distinct advantages:
Fire-Resistant: ROCKWOOL insulation offers a barrier that can delay the spread of fire and provide you and your family with precious extra minutes to escape. Its unique composition won’t burn, or release toxic gases or smoke when exposed to high heat. And it can withstand temperatures of up to 2150F (1177C) – well above heat levels of typical house fires.
Water-Repellent: ROCKWOOL insulation repels water. As a result, even after exposure to water and moisture, ROCKWOOL won’t slump in the wall cavity like that of many conventional batt insulation products, nor does it affect the R-value that ROCKWOOL provides. Equally important, ROCKWOOL is an inert substance and therefore does not support mold or fungal growth; meaning a safer indoor environment for your home.
Made from Stone: ROCKWOOL insulation is created using a unique combination of stone and recycled slag – a by-product of steel production that would otherwise go to landfill. Its non-directional fiber structure and higher density give it better dimensional stability and make it an effective barrier against noise.
Easy to Cut & Install for Optimal Fit: ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation is easy to cut precisely with a serrated blade, such as a bread knife. This allows you to accurately trim the insulation to the wall or ceiling cavity – and get an optimal fit around electrical boxes, wiring, plumbing and ductwork. The result is better R-value and maximum sound absorption.
