What is Rockwool?
Rockwool insulation is a volcanic asbestos insulation that is stable and durable in nature. It is classified in Euroclass A1 and A2 according to EN 13501-1. This confirms Rockwool to be a fireproof and non-flammable material.
Is “WALLROC” Rockwool insulation panel good?
- Fireproof insulated sandwich panel
- Rockwool are made from Volcanic rocks that are heat resistant up to 1,000 °C, melted, fireproof, highly durable and stable.
- Rockwool insulation is perfect for heat absorption, it can store and neutralize heat within itself preventing heat transfer. There for making Rockwool the most effective and popular insulation for roofing panels in all types of industries.
For example, in a real situation the temperature on the roof without insulation during the day in the hot sun can be up to 80 °C and beneath temperatures can be up to 50 °C
With Rockwool fireproof insulation installed, the temperature of the roof was reduced to 35 °C. Reducing the temperature by nearly 55%.
- Efficient natural strength and durability of a volcanic rock.
- Provides excellent sound absorption that reduces sound by up to 27 db (STC) and reduce noise by 44% (NRC).
- Fire proof protection (Non Combustible), A1
- Non Combustible, A1
- Fire resistant for more than 4 hours (Integrity> 4hr)
- The first and only FM Approvals in Thailand (FM 4880, Class 1)
- Does not cause cancer in the human body.
- Can be used as wall panels to prevent or reduce resonance in places such as studios and theaters.
