Our insulation is a key component in fire-resilient buildings as its stone wool fibres are inherently non-combustible and can resist temperatures up to 1,000º C. This is crucial to containing a fire locally and securing that a fire in a building will not become a building on fire. With minimal organic content, ROCKWOOL insulation will not produce any signficant toxic smoke.
