Acoustic performance is the principle requirement for internal walls, with both sound insulation and sound absorption being important considerations. The sound absorption characteristics of our mineral wool insulation solutions make them ideal for use in internal wall build-ups. Thermal performance in internal partitions is not usually relevant.
In certain buildings there may also be specific fire performance requirements for partitions separating specific room types making our non-combustible solutions an ideal choice for this application.
WHY MINERAL WOOL?
Friction fitting mineral wool between metal or timber studs closes joints, eliminating gaps to prevent acoustic bridging and ensure high levels of sound insulation.
The non-combustible nature of mineral wool means it will not contribute to the spread of a fire should it occur.
