New Build Installations
Our Mineral Wool insulation solutions not only help you create building environments that are comfortable and safe for your customers to live in, but also help reduce energy usage and therefore costs. They also come with very good green credentials which make them a great option for your next project.
We know that regardless of how our insulation performs in theory, its performance when installed can be hugely impacted by the quality of install. The good news is that if our products are installed correctly, the insulation will last for the building’s lifetime.
Our Mineral Wool also provides a combination of thermal, fire safety and acoustic performance.

Installing insulation retrospectively can come with additional complexity compared to installing in a new build. We always recommend assessing the house to ensure the right retrofit is carried out, whilst being in line with PAS 2035, which provides a specification for the energy retrofit of domestic buildings.
Planning effectively for a retrofit installation is key, including:
Conducting a condensation risk analysis
Choosing the right product for your project
Assessing junctions prior to beginning work on the installation
Our recommendation for retrofit installations is to ensure you are as accurate with the install as possible, and that the job is completed with due care.

Our Rocksilk® RainScreen slabs are non-combustible with the best Euroclass A1 reaction to fire rating. The non-combustibility of the insulation makes it suitable for use on buildings of any height including new build, refurbishment and remediation works.

Adding Mineral Wool insulation to an internal wall, partition, or ceiling before starting the drylining process helps to add a level of sound absorption, if the correct product is used. Using a specific acoustic product at a suitable density, such as Acoustic Roll, will ensure that there is the right level of noise reduction to comply with acoustic Building Regulations.
