Earthwool Acoustic Roll

For internal floors, separating floors, internal walls and plasterboard partitions

Earthwool Acoustic Partition Roll

Performance

Acoustic

Earthwool Acoustic Roll has exceptional acoustic absorption properties.

Fire

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is classified as Euroclass A1 to BS EN 13501-1.

Description

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is a flexible glass mineral wool quilt which is lightweight, flexible, resilient and non-combustible. Earthwool Acoustic Rolls are 1200mm wide and ready-cut to produce three, 400mm wide rolls, or two, 600mm wide rolls and manufactured to a minimum density of 10Kg/m3.

Benefits

  • Excellent sound absorption properties
  • Lightweight, and easy to install
  • Dimensioned to suit studs and joists at 400mm or 600mm centres
  • Long roll lengths for quick and economic Installation
  • Friction fits between studs, ensuring continuity of the absorbent layer with no air gaps

Application

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is specifically designed for friction fitting between joists and studs at 400mm and 600mm centres to improve the sound insulation of:

  • separating walls and floors
  • internal walls and floors
  • timber and metal stud partitions

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is also designed for friction fitting between resilient timber battens and timber studs in Robust Detail separating floors and walls.

Earthwool Acoustic Roll provides a high level of sound absorption, whilst also improving the thermal and fire performance of the wall, floor or partition. Using glass mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions and floors significantly improves their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to the overall mass of the structure. In partitions glass mineral wool complements the plasterboard linings by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing reverberation, it is particularly effective at preventing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities.

Environmental

Earthwool Acoustic Roll represents no known threat to the environment and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential and zero Global Warming Potential.

ECOSE® Technology

Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE Technology benefit from a revolutionary, bio-based, formaldehyde-free binder technology, based on rapidly renewable materials, instead of petro-based chemicals. It reduces embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability.

The technology has been developed for Knauf Insulation’s glass and rock mineral wool products, enhancing their environmental credentials without affecting the thermal, acoustic or fire performance. Insulation products made with ECOSE Technology contain no dye or artificial colours – the colour is completely natural.

Additional

Standards

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is manufactured in accordance with BS EN 13162, EN 16001 Energy Management Systems, OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, and ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, as certified by Bureau Veritas.

Durability

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is odourless, rot proof, non-hygroscopic, does not sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Handling and storage

Earthwool Acoustic Roll is easy to handle and install, being lightweight and easily cut to size, where necessary. It is supplied enclosed in polythene which is designed for short term protection only. For longer term protection on site, the product should be stored either indoors, or under cover and off the ground. Earthwool Acoustic Roll should not be left permanently exposed to the elements.
