Demand more from your insulation

At Knauf Insulation, we believe housebuilders should expect more from the insulation they specify - not just with regards to thermal performance, but fire safety and sustainability too. And not just on paper, but solutions that perform ‘as-built’ in real homes.

Compromise is completely unnecessary.

Our whole-house range of Glass and Rock Mineral Wool solutions delivers all-round real-world performance, at a competitive cost.

‘As-built’ thermal performance that stands up to scrutiny

  • Low-lambda solutions for any application

  • Readily adapts to site conditions

  • Extensive BBA certification

When it comes to new home insulation, low-lambda is not enough. With building regulations changing to place more emphasis on ‘as built’ fabric efficiency, housebuilders need products they can rely on to deliver real world performance. We call that ‘Buildability’ – how well the insulation adapts to reality on site, how easy it is to install correctly, and therefore how closely its performance matches your specification.

Our Glass and Rock Mineral Wool solutions are engineered for maximum buildability, so you can be confident you’re getting the performance you’re paying for – and your customers can too.

Non-combustible for non-negotiable fire safety

  • Naturally non-combustible

  • Euroclass A1 reaction to fire classification

  • Up to 120 mins fire resistance

With the fire safety of buildings rightly in focus, your insulation has an important role to play in keeping people safe in their new homes.

All our products are non-combustible, achieving the best A1 or A2-s1, d0 Euroclass A1 reaction to fire classification. This means they will not contribute to the spread or development of a fire should it occur. Unlike other insulation materials, our Glass and Rock Mineral Wool solutions can be specified with confidence for even the most sensitive applications.

Helping you to build greener homes

  • Our Glass Mineral Wool products have the lowest embodied carbon of any mainstream insulation materials

  • They generate low levels of VOC thanks to our unique ECOSE® Technology, and

  • They are supported by third-party green certifications and labels

Planners and homebuyers have always asked how sustainable homes are to run. Now, they’re beginning to ask how sustainably they were built.

Made in the UK from up to 80% recycled content, our Glass Mineral Wool solutions have the lowest embodied carbon of any mainstream construction insulation materials. They have earned a Europe-first Declare ‘Red List Free’ label and Eurofins Indoor Air Comfort ‘Gold’ certificate, thanks in part to ECOSE® Technology, our unique bio-based binder that contains no added formaldehyde or phenols and generates low levels of VOCs (volatile organic compounds).
