Unique product benefits
Stone wool insulation is made from one of nature’s most abundant resources –volcanic rock. Not only is it a naturally renewable and sustainable material, it also boasts a unique combination of benefits and lays the foundation for our business. All our insulation products possess outstanding fire, acoustic and thermal insulation properties as well as a lifelong durability, making it the sustainable and cost-effective choice.
Saving the environment, buildings and people
ROCKWOOL insulation saves more than the energy used for its production. Its use helps conserve scarce energy resources and thereby helps alleviating severe environmental problems.
Over the years, the excellent fire protection properties of stone wool have helped save many lives and its unique thermal properties have improved the indoor climate of many buildings and homes. Our products have been installed in domestic, commercial and industrial buildings of all types, from prestige projects including London’s O2 Arena and Hong Kong Airport to family homes, local hospitals and schools in many countries.
