With more than 40 years of expertise within the Insulation Industry Knauf Insulation is the most suitable option when it comes to performance.
Knauf Fire Panel plasterboard 12.5mm, sometimes referred to as stone wool is an incredibly versatile form of insulation that is used in a variety of uses.
A lot of people simply use the term Mineral Wool insulation however there are two kinds: Rock as well as Glass.
The Advantages Of Knauf Insulation
The names of the products suggest that they are constructed from different substances. This means that they perform differently. Therefore, while you may utilise them interchangeably in certain programs, there’s some in which one performs better.
It is possible to use both kinds of Mineral Wool to achieve excellent levels of thermal insulation. Rock Mineral Wool prevents a building from losing heat or getting it through its roof and walls. It requires less energy to cool or heat the structure, meaning costs for energy are less.
Due to the method in which it’s produced, Rock Mineral Wool has somewhat shorter fibre strands when compared to the Glass Mineral Wool.
The strands that are shorter give Rock Mineral Wool superior compressive strength. This is the reason why products designed for flat roofing that can be used for maintenance or installation made from Rock Mineral Wool.
Mineral Wool is superior to other insulation materials in terms of safety in the event of fire. Rock and Glass Mineral Wool have the highest possible reaction of Euroclass to Fire Classification of A1 (non-combustible) or A2 (limited the degree of combustibility).
The issue of fire resistance is an additional aspect of fire security. The measure of Fire Resistance is the length of time a specific building element, like an interior wall or ceiling can stand up to the movement through the fire’s place to the next. For instance, a structure with a two-hour Fire Resistance will maintain its quality for at least two hours duration.
Rock Mineral Wool has a melting temperature of more than 1,000oC. It also reduces its transfer. This is why the Rock Mineral Wool material is more for applications where long time periods of fire resistance are needed.
Contrary to other insulation types like the rigid foam boards, rock or Glass mineral wool insulation is extremely effective in blocking noise. This is because it is an open fibre matrix which blocks the sound waves.
The insulation of Rock Mineral Wool that has excellent acoustic qualities is suitable for the walls, floors, or roofs to create soundproofing and quieter structures ecotherm eco versal.
Installation Process Is Easy
Knauf Soundshield plus products are long-lasting and rigid slabs that can be easily install. They are design to in standard centres however they can be to size using a big blade saw or knife.
Because the slabs don’t have brittleness they are able to adapt to imperfections on the substrate and be tightly knit making sure there are no gaps, ensuring maximum fire and thermal safety as well as sound quality.
Quality Of The Indoor Air
Insufficient indoor air quality could influence the health of installers as well as those who live in buildings. One method to improve living conditions is to stay clear of products that release excessive levels of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde.
Knauf Insulations Rock Wool products are produce using ECOSE(r) Technology as well as a bio-base binder, which has no formaldehyde, phenol or formaldehyde.
Products that are using ECOSE(r) Technology create minimal dust levels as well as VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and have receive an Eurofins Gold certificate for Indoor Air Comfort.
The insulation made of Rock Mineral Wool created using ECOSE(r) Technology is comfortable to touch and easy to hold. It is also more eco-friendly, sturdy and long-lasting.
Locate Your Rock Mineral Wool Solution
In the event that Rock Mineral Wool is right for you, Knauf Insulation offers a wide range of products suitable for applications that range from walls, floors and roofs to HVAC systems and industrial processes. The product range includes
Different Types Of Insulation
Glass Mineral Wool
Our top-quality Glass Mineral Wool insulation solutions comprise more than 80% of high quality recycle materials. To this is to add limestone, sand and soda ash, before being heat in the furnace.
The melting glass is made into thousands of fine, bouncy strands wool. We employ our unique and innovative bio-base binder, ECOSE(r) Technology to tie the mineral wool and form a mat material that is then to create our final products.
Its density will determine whether it is a light quil that comes in rolls as well as a slab with a flexible structure or a solid slab and the energy efficiency.
The high-performance Blowing Wool can be describe as an undamage, pure glass blowing insulation that is fibrous that is exactly the same way as Glass Mineral Wool. It is produce in the same manner as Glass Mineral Wool however it is manufacture in a loose-fill form to be blow into cavities walls and partitions as well as timber frame walls and ceilings.
Rock Mineral Wool
Knauf’s Rock Mineral Wool insulation products are mostly from volcanic rock, usually dolomite or basalt. The majority of them are recycle from slag which is an unusable product of blast furnaces.
These raw ingredients are then melt and into fine strands of wool. Binders are use to tie wool to create an insulation mat which is into wires or slabs mattresses.
Our solutions have be test in various applications that are fire-resist with resistance durations between 30 and 240 minutes , which can assist in the creation of safe structures.
The properties that save energy and the thermal performance of insulation help keep the buildings warm in winter, and cool in summer.
The greater the difference in temperature between the outside and inside of a structure the faster it will be able to lose energy during the winter months and increase it in the summer.
Mineral wool insulation products help to maintain a steady temperature inside by slowing the transfer of heat through conduction, convection and radiation.
When a building is properly insulate it can save energy from the heating system in the case of heating a cold structure and from cooling systems cooling a warm structure.
The insulation’s acoustic properties can create a better indoor environment for building occupants.
The protection from noise is essential to the “quality of life” provided by living spaces, and an efficient, healthy and pleasant environment in buildings like hospitals, offices, schools and other non-domestic structures.
Mineral wool insulation products provide the highest levels of noise and sound reduction in new construction or in existing structures through retrofits, which provide better noise insulation and acoustic comfort.
Insulation can create dry, comfortable indoor spaces and structures and can have a significant impact on the overall health and well-being of the people who use them.
By preventing air leaks uncontroll condensation , and the possibility of mould spores, mildew , or other Microbial organic compounds an airtight, well-insulate envelope of a building also helps the health of the building especially when it is couple with the efficient installation of solutions and a control air-conditioning system.
Rw3 100mm insulation solutions have all of the above advantages and more because of the ECOSE(r) Technology we use ECOSE(r)
Etics Using Mineral Wool From Knauf Insulation Of Homes
Mineral Wool knauf safeboard panels PTP-S-035 was selected to implement the insulation system, and also to meet the regulations currently in force.
The panels are small and non-combustible (Euroclass A1) ; they also have Primer on one of the sides. They are also extremely easy to handle due to the homogeneity of the mechanical advantages across every side.
The very nature of Knauf Insulation Mineral Wool allows the Planner to have freedom in design and utilises the complete colour spectrum on the exterior. This guarantees low costs of maintenance in the future due to its outstanding endurance.
