Acoustics matter in every application

Our Glass and Rock Mineral Wool solutions achieve the highest standards for sound absorption, so whatever your application, there’s a Knauf Insulation product for it.

Noise pollution costs Europe £24Bn per year in lost productivity, health costs and impaired learning. That’s why we need better buildings designed with acoustics in mind. Approved Document E and other guidance specify how insulation should be used in external walls and separating elements.

Not a Requirement...

But there’s a strong case to go beyond this regulatory minimum to consider acoustics in every building component. The regulations might not require insulation in all internal partitions, but try telling that to a person who can’t work from home while their children are playing in the next room.

Our mineral wool insulation solutions are excellent at absorbing sound, creating homes, offices, schools and hospitals that are quieter, healthier and more productive.

But Definitely a Necessity

And it’s cost-effective too. In fact, it costs as little as £30 more to turn a typical three-bed semi-detached house into a true ‘family-ready’ home by adding acoustic mineral wool insulation to all internal partitions.

Mineral wool is the best solution

Mineral wool insulation is the most effective at reducing sound transmission and reverberations. The fibre structures are designed to absorb sound waves and convert them into heat, where other insulation types simply let the sound pass through.

Both glass and rock mineral wool can be used to achieve any acoustic performance. The right solution depends on your application.
