Mineral Wool Insulation Contractors

Commonly referred to as just “mineral wool” within the industry, this type of thermal insulation comes in two variations: Rock/Stone Wool and Glass Fibre. These versions, though sharing some common uses, have subtle performance differences due to the source materials they are made from.

Mineral wool and fibreglass insulation are excellent options for insulating pipes and ductwork. Mineral wool, made from stone and glass, is dense and great for thermal and sound insulation. On the other hand, fibreglass insulation, a mix of recycled glass and sand, is flexible and widely used. Learn more about Thermal Insulation, from our Expert Guide.

While mineral wool excels in robust insulation, fibreglass’s adaptability and popularity among homeowners and builders make it a reliable option.

Mineral Wool Insulation - Key Benefits

01.

Mineral wool insulation reduces noise pollution

Noise pollution is bad for everyone, it inhibits privacy and is generally bad for human health. Installing mineral wool insulation means investing in quieter buildings. Mineral wool insulation increases sound absorption and restricts sound transfer, providing a highly effective noise barrier. This is because it has an open fibre matrix that absorbs sound waves. This serves to limit the impact of noise transfer through HVAC pipework and services on building occupants, which helps to create a comfortable working and living environment. If you’re looking for quieter buildings, then consider hiring a mineral wool contractor.

02.

Reduced emissions and increased energy saving

Mineral wool insulation provides a barrier to heat’s natural tendency to flow to colder surfaces. The best mineral wool will cost-effectively reduce heating and cooling demand and increase overall energy efficiency. This is vital as it will provide you with substantial energy savings and lead to carbon emission reductions over the period of its lifetime.

03.

Mineral wool provides enhanced fire safety

Another great benefit of mineral wool is that it provides enhanced fire safety. This is because it is non-combustible, doesn’t conduct heat and can resist higher temperatures.

Overall, mineral wool is far superior to other insulation materials when it comes to fire safety. Rock and glass mineral wool achieve the best possible Euroclass Reaction to Fire Classification of A1 (non-combustible) or A2 (limited combustibility).

04.

Mineral wool insulation offers improved thermal insulation

Finally, mineral wool offers improved thermal insulation when compared to other products and this is mainly thanks to its open fibre structure. It helps to restrict heat transfer through buildings, therefore reducing the need for constant heating and cooling. Because both glass and rock wool are not prone to thermal ageing, mineral wool retains its full, high-level insulation capacity throughout the lifetime of a building. On top of this, it provides increased comfort for building occupants.

Mineral Wool Insulation for Pipes & Ductwork

Mineral wool is an insulator that is frequently used for insulating pipes and ducts within the construction industry, and there are two main types:

The first type of mineral wool insulation is made from natural stone fibres like molten basalt or diabase. Sourced from volcanic rock and then melted at extreme temperatures, the rock is spun into wool and bound together by differing resins and oils; The second type of mineral wool insulation is made from spinning slag, a waste product that comes from the production of steel. It can also be made by manufacturers by combining molten slag and natural rock and is made up of recycled content.

Glass and stone mineral wool insulates by trapping and holding air still. Porous materials such as mineral wool are a great solution for lowering noise by allowing air movement into the fabric of the material. Glass fibre insulation and mineral wool for ductwork or pipework are typically made with plain or foil-faced finishes, but other options are available.

These alternate finishes become necessary when the insulated pipe or duct is exposed outdoors or in visible areas within a building, requiring protection or a polished appearance. As leading mineral wool insulation contractors, we specialise in various finishing techniques suitable for such situations, like PIB, stainless steel sheets, and aluminium sheets.

Glass Fibre & Mineral Wool Insulation - FAQs

Mineral wool, a versatile insulation material, is produced by melting stone and glass at high temperatures to create molten material. This material is spun into fine fibres resembling wool, which are then compacted to form insulation products with excellent thermal and acoustic properties. The use of stone and glass contributes to its durability, fire resistance, and overall performance, making it a preferred choice in construction and industry.
