Rockal’s products can be used in a variety of industrial applications such as power plants, boilers based manufacturing, cement plants and hot liquids piping insulation.
Rockwool insulation is used in many architectural applications such as facades insulation, hangers and large stock buildings insulation. Rockwool is fire-proof and recommended by consultants.
Rockwool is widely known for its remarkable results when it comes to sound insulation, thus its used as main sound insulation for theaters, studios, cinema halls, etc…
Rockwool materials come from basaltic rocks thus its fundamental element comes from Earth. It’s used in agricultural applications instead of traditional use of dirt.
Stone Wool Characteristics
Heating and cooling are the main energy consumers in buildings and account for two thirds of a building’s total energy consumption.According to McKinsey, and many other studies, better insulation is one of the most profitable ways to save energy wastage and CO2 emissions.
Stone wool is a type of insulation material that can be used under extreme conditions. It retains its insulation properties in both very low (e.g. oxygen installations) and very high (up to 750°C) temperatures.
Even if not used primarily for fire protection, due to its non-combustibility, stone wool insulation does not fuel or spread fire by releasing heat, smoke, or burning droplets. rockwool products improve the safety of occupants and rescuers, as well as protecting property and belongings in the event of a fire.
Acoustic Insulation Thanks to its spaces between the fibres and its porous, open structure, rockwool stone wool provides good sound absorption and reduces noise vibrations. It is used in acoustic ceilings, noise screens, around noisy machines, in outer walls, between rooms, roofs and floors and even underneath rail tracks to protect against noise and vibrations and to improve the indoor acoustic comfort.
