Rock Mineral Wool - Rainscreen Slab

Application

Rainscreen Facade Insulation

Material

Rock Mineral Wool

Description

RainScreen Slabs are treated with a water repellent additive, and are designed for use in ventilated façade systems where fire safety is a critical consideration.

Traditionally specified for commercial buildings (malls, hospitals, offices and hotels) as well as high rise accommodations for fire safety. Ventilated façade systems can be installed on new buildings or as a non-invasive refurbishment method to improve the aesthetic appearance of older, tired or previously uninsulated façades whilst simultaneously reducing energy consumption and the building’s lifetime running cost. They also enhance a building’s acoustic performance for a better living, working or, in the case of a hotel, relaxing experience.
