What's new with Knauf Insulation?

By Knauf Insulation UK & Ireland on July 12, 2021

At Knauf Insulation, we have been making a lot of changes.

These changes are designed to make our market-leading, non-combustible products even better.

Better for you, because it’s easier to choose, use, store and handle your insulation. And better for the world, because together, we are reducing our carbon footprint even further.

Firstly, we have redesigned and improved our packaging so that the information you need is front and centre. This includes;

  • Bigger and clearer product names;
  • More prominent product features (such as thermal and acoustic icons, and Euroclass A1 Non-combustible logo and wording for fire safety assurance and compliance);
  • A colour-coded Glass Mineral Wool range by thermal conductivity group.

At the same time, we have discontinued the Earthwool® name to simplify the brand and, therefore, simplify the choice for the customer. And we are introducing Rocksilk®, a new brand with a fresh look for our high performance, non-combustible Rock Mineral Wool range! Our Rocksilk® products can be used in a variety of applications across both residential and commercial buildings, including those above 18m high.

Our already industry-leading compression technology has been upgraded to a 10:1 ratio, meaning there is even more product per pack and pallet, therefore less vehicles on the roads and less plastic packaging per m2 of our insulation, improving our carbon footprint.

We haven’t stopped there when it comes to sustainability – we have also cut down on the ink in our packaging designs, and we are introducing a new film with a minimum of 30% recycle plastic content, so our packaging is even easier to recycle.

With Knauf Insulation, you always get more.

We are the only UK manufacturer of both Glass and Rock Mineral Wool insulation. Our unique bio-based binder is better for the installer and the environment, and our insulation is naturally non-combustible. All of this comes with reassurance, compliance, and comprehensive technical support.

We’ve got more to come in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled on our page to hear about it first!
