What environmental impacts/benefits are there from using ROCKWOOL?

The natural basic rock material for making ROCKWOOL is an abundant resource. Great care is taken during both the manufacturing process and distribution of finished insulation products to minimise any environmental impact. ROCKWOOL's operation team monitors the production processes carefully to ensure any emissions are within specified limits. It is ROCKWOOL Group policy to adhere to environmental standards better than national or local requirements. Please visit the Sustainabilty section of the website and watch the Sustainabilty video below for more in-depth information.

How long does ROCKWOOL roof insulation last before I need to replace it?


ROCKWOOL insulation has been proven in service for over 70 years in a wide range of climates and exposures. ROCKWOOL insulation will generally perform effectively throughout the lifetime of the host structure, associated attachments or fittings and therefore does not need any replacement. 

How do I cut ROCKWOOL roof insulation products to fit?

ROCKWOOL insulation can easily be cut with a long bladed knife or insulation saw available from DIY outlets.
