Roxul Stone Wool Insulation
What is stone wool batt insulation and why you need to insulate with it...
Stone Wool Batt Insulation is a fire resistant insulation made from strands of minerals and rock that are heated until they can be woven into a wool-like material. Unlike Fiberglass insulation, Stone Wool's density properties allow it to fair much better under the conditions of a fire. Stone Wool has a density of 1. lbs/cft whereas fiberglass has a density of .5-.10/cft. We think this is something worth paying attention to and reason enough to make the switch from Fiberglass to Stone Wool Insulation.
