Thermal and Sound insulation

Simplify your insulation product choice

The new ROCKWOOL Thermal and Sound Insulation range has been designed to simplify insulation product choice; offering clear application focus, and introducing a brand new family of products dedicated to Sound. The range offers builders a rationalised set of simple, cost effective, and easy to fit products that brings many benefits, for both them and their customers. Ideal for residential thermal applications such as extensions, loft conversions, and change of use, and sound applications such as home offices, bedrooms and bathrooms and TV, media and gaming rooms.

ROCKWOOL Sound Insulation is a family of products optimised for use in acoustic soundproofing, featuring higher product densities and a random fibre strand orientation that traps sound waves and deadens vibration. Designed for use in internal and separating walls and floors; providing fire protection and reducing noise from both adjacent properties and between rooms in the same home.

ROCKWOOL Thermal Insulation is a family of products designed for use in lofts, masonry cavity walls, external timber frame walls and suspended timber floors. The Thermal Insulation family provides a fast and easy to fit range of products, with reliable thermal performance - increasing home safety and comfort, while keeping heating bills low

Key product benefits

Sound insulation

Made from stone, ROCKWOOL insulation absorbs sound and reduces sound vibrations due to its density, the non-directional fibre orientation and its open porous structure; trapping and preventing sound waves from traveling through it.

Thermal insulation

ROCKWOOL Thermal insulation offers excellent thermal performance. Due to its robustness and density, ROCKWOOL provides a great fit and will not sag or slump, so delivers and maintains long term performance.

Additional benefits

Perfect fit

The robustness, flexible structure and unique gap-filing properties of ROCKWOOL insulation make it quick and easy to cut and install properly, even in uneven frames and around cables, pipes, sockets and services – providing a perfect fit, both saving time and delivering maximum performance.

Fire resistant

ROCKWOOL insulation is non-combustible, and able to withstand temperatures up to 1,177°C. ROCKWOOL insulation acts like a fire barrier, improving the safety of occupants and protecting property and contents in the event of a fire.

Moisture repellent

ROCKWOOL stone wool repels water; exposure to leaks or rain will result in water simply running off the surface and draining away. However, ROCKWOOL insulation is also breathable, so will allow tapped moisture to pass through and escape. As stone wool contains zero nutrient content, it resists rot and mould.

ROCKWOOL insulation products are made from stone wool – a blend of naturally occurring volcanic diabase rock. In its manufactured state, stone wool combines the power of stone with the characteristics of typical insulation wool. And, thanks to its non-directional fibre orientation it exhibits some unique and valuable characteristics. ROCKWOOL insulation offers not only excellent thermal qualities, saving on heating and energy bills, but it also provides a barrier to fire, repels water, absorbs sound, prevents rot and mould, and is also quick and easy to cut and fit without leaving performance reducing gaps, or sagging and slumping over time.
