Benefits of Acoustic Insulation
Minimise Sound Transmission
Sound proof insulation works by preventing sound transmission through surfaces such as walls, doors and roofs; keeping noise within the home and unwanted external noise out. Sound insulation achieves this thanks to its high-density and the use of new and innovative materials. Acoustic insulation slabs are highly effective at preventing sound from travelling throughout the home.
Some manufacturers have also introduced unique design features for even stronger soundproofing, such as in Rockwool sound insulation. Their Rockwool FLEXI has a patented flexible edge which helps to ensure a snug fit and prevent sound leakage around the edges of your acoustic insulation.
Perfect for Insulating Walls, Floors and Roofs
Sound will travel throughout your home or property, or from the outside through whichever path offers least resistance. This could be any external or internal surface on your property, whether that’s the walls, roof, floors or more.
If you’d like to create a quieter, more peaceful environment in your home, then effective acoustic insulation is necessary. Acoustic insulation slabs from Rockwool can be used as sound insulation for walls, between floors and more. In addition, building regulations for dwellings also set a minimum level of acoustic insulation for homes.
Designed to Avert the Spread of Fire
Preventing the spread of fire throughout your property is essential. For this reason, manufacturers have used non-combustible materials when creating their acoustic insulation. This has resulted in many of their sound insulation products also receiving Euroclass A1 accreditation, which certifies the product’s ability to combat fire and give anyone in danger more time to get to safety.
