Stone Wool Insulation
Cavity wall stone wool insulation is a unique and highly versatile product. Its exceptional thermal properties have contributed massively to European efforts to save energy, in turn combatting climate change. In addition to energy saving efforts, it has contributed to noise pollution, both in residential and industrial settings. This is due to the makeup of stone wool insulation – it is a mat of mineral fibres woven together that prevents air movement. It also has a high thermal resistance, contributing to the reduction of home and industrial fires over recent years.
The success of stone wool has led it to be used in a variety of different applications and situations. It is a common choice for home cavity wall insulation, loft insulation, and underfloor insulation. It’s inherent properties and long lifespan make it an ideal choice for a near-permanent solution to any home insulation problem.
What Is Stone Wool Insulation?
Stone wool insulation is the general name for insulation made from fibrous materials that are formed by spinning or drawing molten minerals into strands of fibre. The resulting fibres have a combination of physical properties that no other insulative material can match. DMS Installations in Glasgow, Scotland provide expert installations for all types of cavity wall stone wool insulation.
With timber frame fast becoming the preferred method of home construction due to the attached costs and relatively quick building times, extra care must be taken to ensure an appropriate level of fire safety. This is where Rockwool stone wool insulation steps in; perfect for use in cavity wall insulation, underfloor insulation, or loft space insulation, Rockwool has the necessary thermal resistance to reduce the risk of fire in a home setting.
Another large area of application for Rockwool stone wool insulation is loft insulation. Rockwool can be used to provide solutions for application at the ceiling line – ideal for residential buildings where the loft space does not need to be habitable. Insulation can either be supplied by Rockwool insulation rolls or by blown fibres. Both solutions are a great improvement for the thermal efficiency of a building, making them ideal for loft insulation.
