Glass Mineral Wool Insulation
Made from a combination of recycled bottle glass and silicone heated to a very high temperature, the molten glass is spun and formed into a flexible fibrous mat that can then be made into finished products.
Its outstanding thermal, fire and acoustic properties come from this mat preventing the movement of air, and from its inert chemical composition. It`s also very versatile , and can be made to many different densities for different properties, shapes and facing materials from loose, granular material for cavity walls to rolls for loft insulation to ceiling tiles and acoustic panels.
One of the materials primary benefits is its ability to restrict heat transfer in a building, making it warm in winter and cooler in summer to reduce the need for heating and cooling (and in turn, energy consumption and CO2 emissions).
By absorbing sound energy, glass wool improves the acoustic performance of walls, floors and roofs and restricts noise transfer within a structure between two buildings or to the outside world.
As it's non- combustible, glass wool provides in-built fire protection and effectively contributes to the fire safety of buildings.
Glass wool not only saves energy in use, but also in its manufacture. It reduces heating and cooling requirements so efficiently, it saves many times the energy used in sourcing the raw materials, manufacture, distribution and installation. As it is made from recycled glass, it reduces waste disposal and saves valuable resources.
