What lies beneath
When approaching building design, the ground floor should be considered as part of the wider building envelope and as such included within any holistic process – particularly where thermal performance is concerned. By its very nature, the ground floor is a high risk point of heat loss which means it needs to be adequately insulated to ensure a comfortable and consistent indoor climate as well as compliance with the Building Regulations. ROCKWOOL stone wool naturally provides high levels of thermal performance to prevent the passage of heat out of a ground floor. ROCKWOOL ground floor insulation solutions are available for timber floors, metal floors, precast concrete floating floors as well as beam and block floors.
