Superior fire resilience

Fire Protection

ROCKWOOL insulation is made from naturally fire resilient stone wool. Created using the same process that occurs at the heart of a volcano, ROCKWOOL stone wool tolerates temperatures of up to 1000°C and does not burn. It therefore provides vital fire protection in buildings, keeping people safe, as well as minimising damage to valuable assets. ROCKWOOL products are designed to remain stable when exposed to burning hot flames, helping to maintain the building’s structure and buying valuable time for occupants to safely escape. ROCKWOOL insulation buys time. In the event of fire, our insulation slows the spread of the flames and does not produce any significant toxic smoke. ROCKWOOL products are fire-safe and also help to protect the building’s load-bearing structure, protecting lives and investment.

Before you install essential smoke detectors, smoke control devices, fire alarms and sprinkler systems in your public and industrial buildings, choose ROCKWOOL insulation and build in the first step to effective fire protection.

Fire safe insulation

ROCKWOOL products act as an effective fire barrier in the following ways:

  • Between rooms and roof spaces
  • A fire shield for structural steel members
  • A fireproof cover for hot industrial process pipes and ducts
  • A fire-safe core for sandwich panel constructions

For every application, you can be sure ROCKWOOL insulation will never contribute to fire spread and flashover.

Firestopping

Our specialist range of fire stopping products help architects, contractors and developers conform to current fire regulations. Careful design will also ensure that fire cannot spread through cavities or along the service pipe or cable. With each service run including a different combination of plastic and metallic pipes, ducts, and power and data cables, every element will react very differently to fire. So fire stopping systems must be designed, manufactured and installed to cope with the individual needs of the project. 

Many of our stone wool insulation products have been awarded the highest possible European classification: A1 non-combustible.
