People have a right to expect that their homes, workplaces, schools, and hospitals are safe. Building fires do happen and when they do, the safety of building occupants and first-responders depends overwhelmingly on how the building performs during the fire.
Our insulation is a key component in fire-resilient buildings as its stone wool fibres are inherently non-combustible and can resist temperatures up to 1,000º C. This is crucial to containing a fire locally and securing that a fire in a building will not become a building on fire. And with minimal organic content, ROCKWOOL insulation will not produce any significant toxic smoke.
As a minimum, every medium- and high-rise building should only be clad and insulated with non-combustible* materials that do not emit any significant toxic smoke when exposed to fire.
What happens in a fire
Non-combustible building facades
Containing a fire once it begins
Superior fire resilient insulation for residential and commercial buildings
We are committed to improving energy efficiency in your buildings with our innovative and high performance solutions and products. Our insulation products fit all types of buildings and can be applied to roofs, lofts, walls, floors, foundations and HVAC systems. Our insulation solutions improve thermal and acoustic comfort while also improving a building’s fire resilience. ROCKWOOL insulation is fire resilient which means that in the event of a fire, your insulation will contribute to containing a fire rather than feeding it.
