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 specifies that 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 struggle to 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 insulant at reducing sound transmission and reverberations. The fibre matrix encourages the absorption of sound waves, converting them into heat energy, where other insulation types simply let the sound pass through.
Both Glass and Rock Mineral Wool can be used to achieve the desired acoustic performance. The right solution depends on your application
