Rockwool is made from spun fibres of volcanic rocks and can use blast furnace slag, and other mineral waste to form insulation batts, sheets and blankets of known thermal and acoustic performance.

Granulated Rockwool is also available for cavity wall situations and other loose fill situations. Up to 15&37; of it’s content has been recycled from landfill.

Rockwool is considerably denser than Glasswool insulation and has a reputation of being a Premium product with excellent Acoustic benefits as well as capacity to handle very high temperatures. For many years, Rockwool has been the benchmark for the building industry.
