APPLICATION OVERVIEW

Insulation is friction-fitted between rafters, with the option to underline the rafters with a layer of non-combustible Rocksilk® RS45 to further enhance thermal performance.

As rooms-in-roof are usually used as bedrooms, acoustic performance and sound reduction of external noise should be considered in addition to thermal performance.

Our insulation solutions for warm roofs provide thermal efficiency, whilst also contributing to acoustic performance.

Why Mineral Wool?

  • Mineral Wool provides the best combination of thermal, fire safety and acoustic performance.

  • Mineral Wool is easier to install correctly than other insulants such as rigid boards because it adapts to any slight imperfections in the substrate and knits together, eliminating any air gaps. Evidence shows the absence of air gaps is crucial to achieving real performance in the relevant application.
