With over 40 years of experience in the Insulation Industry Knauf Insulation is the most appropriate option for performance.

Knauf Safeboard the plasterboard 12.5mm, sometimes referred as stone wool, is a highly versatile type of insulation used in many different ways.

Many people use the term Mineral Wool insulation however there are two types: rock and Glass.

The Advantages Of Knauf Insulation

The name of the product indicates that they are made with different elements. That means they perform differently. Thus, although you could use them interchangeably in some software, there are some which are more effective.


You can employ both types of Mineral Wool to attain high temperatures of rockwool thermal insulation. Rock Mineral Wool prevents a building from losing heat and making it escape through its walls and roof. It takes less energy to heat or cool the structure, which means that cost for energy is lower.

Compressive Strength

Because of the way of production, Rock Mineral Wool has smaller fibre strands relative to Glass Mineral Wool.

The strands that are longer offer Rock Mineral Wool the highest compressive strength. This is why products specifically designed for flat roofing can be used for maintenance or installation are constructed out of Rock Mineral Wool.

Fire Safety

Mineral Wool has superior properties over other insulation materials when it comes to safety in the event of an incident of fire. Rock and Glass Mineral Wool are the most effective reactions of Euroclass Fire Classification of A1 (non-combustible) or A2 (limited the amount of burning).

The measurement in Fire Resistance is the amount of time and component, such as an inside ceiling or wall, can be able to withstand the movement between the location of the fire and the next.

In other words, a building that has a time limit of two hours Fire Resistance will maintain its performance for at least two hours.

Rock Mineral Wool has a melting temperature of over 1,000oC. It also decreases the transfer. This is the reason it is the Rock Mineral Wool material is ideal for use in areas in which long-term intervals in fire protection are required.

Noise Insulation

Contrary to other types of insulation such as rigid foam boards the rock Glass mineral wool is highly efficient in blocking out the sound. This is because it’s an open-fibre matrix that blocks sound waves.

The insulation made of Rock Mineral Wool that has outstanding acoustic insulation  properties is ideal for floors, walls or roofs in order to provide noise-proofing and quieter structures.

Installation Process is Simple

Knauf performance plus products are durable and solid slabs that can be quickly install. They’re design to be able to be install in traditional centres but the slabs can also be down to size with the big blade saw or a knife.

Since the slabs do not have any brittleness, they are able to adjust to any imperfections in the substrate. They can also be tightly, ensuring there aren’t any gaps which ensures maximum thermal and fire security as well as high quality.

The Quality The Quality The Indoor Air

A poor quality of indoor air can affect how well installers are and people who live in buildings. One approach to improve the quality of life is to stay away from substances that release high amounts of Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) like formaldehyde.

The 12.5mm Knauf Fireshield plasterboard products are manufactured with ECOSE(r) Technology, as in addition to a natural binder that does not contain formaldehyde phenol, or formaldehyde.

Products manufacture using ECOSE(r) Technology result in low levels of dust and also VOCs (volatile organic compounds) and have be award the Eurofins Gold certificate for Indoor Air Comfort.

The insulation is from Rock Mineral Wool create using ECOSE(r) Technology that is soft to the touch and easy to grip. It’s also environmentally friendly, robust and durable.

Find The Solution To Your Rock Solutions For Mineral Wool

If Rock Mineral Wool is right for you, Knauf wallboard 15mm offers a large selection of products that are suitable for applications ranging from floors, walls, and roofs, to Industrial processes and HVAC equipment. The product line includes

Different Insulation Types

Glass Mineral Wool

Our premium Glass Mineral Wool insulation solutions are up of more than 80 percent of high-quality recycle materials. This is then complement by limestone, sand and Ash, and then it is heat-treat by the heat source.

The glass that is melting is then into thousands of fine, fluffy strands of wool. We use our own unique and ingenuous bio-base binder ECOSE(r) Technology, to join the mineral wool to form a mat which is then drie to form the final product.

The density of the fabric will determine if it’s a light, which is available in rolls, as well as a slab that has a flexible structure or an unsupport slab, and its energy efficiency.

The top-quality Blowing Wool is describe as an un-damage clear glass blowing insulation which is fibrous and is produce exactly in the same manner like Glass Mineral Wool.

It is exactly the same way as Glass Mineral Wool however it is produce in a loose-fill format that can be blow into hollow walls and partitions, as and timber frame ceilings and walls.

Rock Mineral Wool

Knauf Fireshield 1.2 x 2.4 insulation products are mainly construct from volcanic rock, which is usually the basalt or dolomite. They are largely recycle from slag that is a waste product from blast furnaces.

The ingredients are melting and forming fine wool strands. They are then use as binder to secure wool together to make an insulation mat that can be into wires, or slabs mattress.

Our products have be test in a variety of applications that are fireproof with durations of resistance ranging between 30 to 240 minutes that can aid in the design of safe structures.


The properties that help save energy as well as the thermal efficiency of insulation helps keep structures warm during winter, and cool in summer.

The more significant the difference in temperatures between the outside and the inside of a building, the more it’s at risk of losing energy during the winter months , and to grow it during summer.

Products made of mineral wool aid to maintain a stable temperature within the room by slowing down temperature transfer by conduction radiation, convection, and conduction.

If a building is properly protect, it will be able to conserve energy from heating systems when heating a cold structure as well as from cooling systems that cool an unheat structure.


Acoustic properties of insulation could provide a more comfortable indoor space for the building’s residents.

Noise protection is crucial in the “quality of living” offered by living spaces as well as a hygienic well-being and a pleasant space in hospitals, schools, offices, and other structures that are not consider to be domestic.

Mineral wool insulation products offer the best levels of sound and noise reduction in new construction, or retrofitting existing structures that provide superior quality noise insulation as well as acoustic comfort.


Insulation can result in warm, dry indoor spaces and structures, and it can have a profound effects on the overall health and well-being of users.

By preventing air leaks that are uncontrol condensation , and the potential of mildew, mold spores and various Microbial organic compounds, having an airtight and well-insulate exterior of buildings also improves the well of the building, especially when it is combine with the effective installation of solutions as well as a control air-conditioning system.

Etics Using Mineral Wool From Knauf Insulation Of Homes

Knauf wallboard 12.5mm panels PTP-S-035 was selected to install the insulation system in addition to being compliant with rules currently in effect home improvement.

The panels are slim and are non (Euroclase A1) they also come with Primer on one side. They also make for extremely simple handling because of the homogeneity of mechanical benefits across all sides.

The character that is Knauf Insulation Mineral Wool permits the Planner to design their own design, and it utilises the full spectrum of colours on the exterior. This will mean lower costs for maintenance later on due to its remarkable durability.
