ROCKWOOL® creates Resource Hubs for specialist insulation solutions

Stone wool insulation manufacturer, ROCKWOOL has created a series of technical Resource Hubs to help specifiers access information and advice on specialist insulation solutions with ease. The new Resource Hubs span passive fire protection, HVAC, ventilated façades, flat roofs and acoustics.

Each hub has been developed to provide visitors with extra support on more complex insulation applications where multiple design conflicts may be at play. The new areas feature a wealth of technical literature, proof of concept case studies, specification tools and CPD learning modules, making it simpler for specifiers to have all the necessary information available to make an informed and confident product choice.

The online hubs also include the latest Building Regulation requirements for each application along with virtual product simulators.

Commenting on the launch of the new hubs, Paul Barrett, Head of Product Management at ROCKWOOL, said:

“When selecting insulation, there are many factors to consider and especially with complex applications or when using new building techniques.”

“In flat roofs for example, the role of this fifth façade is constantly expanding meaning insulation requirements need greater thought and consideration. Likewise, ventilated rainscreen systems are a great solution for high rise construction, but these too need careful planning when it comes to insulation choice.”

“When visiting these new hubs, specifiers can feel assured they have all they need to address a breadth of design challenges and select a solution that balances a multitude of requirements.”
