The manufacturer has introduced mineral wool products that make buildings safer and more energy efficient.
Showcased at the AIA Conference on Architecture in Las Vegas, their product range included new mineral wool products from Thermafiber RainBarrier continuous insulation.
Designed for use in the critical areas of the building enclosure, these fire retardant, UV resistant, and non-combustible materials demonstrate higher compressive strengths.
In addition to energy saving, they ensure fire protection (can withstand 1093 ° C for over 5 hours) and acoustic control. Moreover, they by 70% are recyclable and completely formaldehyde-free.
Among the innovations there was a patented bracket for fastening Thermafiber mineral wool insulation systems, which allows architects to install insulation in hard to reach areas where traditional access methods are limited.
