Creating comfortable interiors
Protecting the exterior of a building from the elements is just one factor which contributes to creating an interior space which promotes positive health and wellbeing. When constructing the internal environment, floors and ceilings form a major part of the structure, with interfacing between the two extremely common in multi-storey developments.
Where separating floors are concerned, which are in turn part of the ceiling composition of the dwelling below, Part L of the Building Regulations dictates thermal standards while Part E sets the acceptable level of sound transfer, and Part B determines fire performance.
For all floor and ceiling applications, including ground and intermediate floors, ROCKWOOL provides a suite of insulation products which not only perform acoustically and thermally – they are also non-combustible to offer a greater level of fire protection.
