Mineral wool sound attenuation is also known as acoustic mineral wool insulation and is used in the soundproofing of commercial and residential spaces. It is an ideal solution to soundproof your property in noisy environments such as industrial spaces or busy offices. Mineral wool is made from recycled materials such as rock wool and is therefore often referred to as rock wool insulation. Apart from acting as a sound absorber in noisy environments, mineral wool can also act as a thermal insulator for structures due to its high R-value.
Mineral wool is mainly derived from rock wool or volcanic rock in the form of matted fiber. This matted fiber structure gives mineral wool high sound absorption properties. The fiber matrix blocks sound waves because of its high density. The dense property of mineral wool batts makes it superior for thermal and fire insulation as well. Rock wool insulation is also one of the most effective environmentally friendly insulation options because it is primarily made from 75% recycled material.
Mineral wool sound attenuation is a great insulation option if you are concerned about your carbon footprint and want to stay green-friendly. It is made from 75% recycled material as compared to fiberglass which contains only 20-30% recycled material. The mineral wool is transformed into flexible mineral wool batts that are excellent for acoustic insulation and moisture resistance.
The main benefit of mineral wool sound attenuation is its excellent sound-absorbing properties. It is a non-combustible insulation option due to its high melting temperature of approximately 1177°C. Due to its dense fiber matrix, it has great moisture absorption and does not mold growth in walls and ceilings.
Mineral wool sound attenuation is used in acoustic insulation of ceilings, interior walls, and floors. It can be applied in wood and steel structures to achieve thermal and acoustic insulation.
Air Seal Insulation Systems is a reliable insulation company that offers mineral wool sound attenuation manufactured from inorganic fibers. Whether you require soundproofing or fireproofing for your structures, our mineral wool sound insulation is a 2-in-1 solution designed to provide excellent noise filtration and thermal resistance. Our experienced insulation installers can install flexible and lightweight mineral wool batts in ceilings, roofs, and walls to achieve noise control and improve STC ratings for walls. Our top-quality mineral wool sound attenuation insulation is perfect for not only sound absorption in busy environments but is also non-combustible, mold-resistant, and water-resistant.
Mineral wool batts are made from recycled inorganic fibers which are pressed into sheets or rolls that can trap air. The high-density fiber matrix of mineral wool makes it ideal for absorbing sound waves. It can be installed in industrial and commercial buildings to achieve high acoustic performance.
Mineral wool has a high melting point of 2150°F (1177°C) which makes it ideal for fire protection in steel and wood structures. It slows down the progress of flames in the event of a fire hazard without producing toxic smoke, giving people the chance to evacuate safely from the building.
The open fiber matrix of mineral wool gives it three times the higher density than fiberglass. Moisture cannot seep through the dense yet lightweight structure of mineral wool batts and hence, it cannot contribute to the growth of fungi or mildew.
Mineral wool sound insulation can be installed in commercial, industrial and residential buildings. It can be applied to interior walls, ceilings, and roofs.
The mineral wool batts are pressed rolls or sheets of individual fibers that make them ideal for heat conduction. As a result, mineral wool or rock wool can be used for thermal insulation of homes and offices and to lower energy bills.
Due to its high R-value, mineral wool is a more durable insulation option as compared to fiberglass which loses its R-value over time. This is due to the mineral composition of rock wool which includes slag and rock which does not degrade over time.
Mineral wool has water-resistant properties due to its open fiber matrix that does not allow moisture or water to penetrate through it. This not only makes mineral wool water-resistant and rot-proof but also perfect for fire-resistance and mold resistance properties.
Mineral wool sound insulation is a bit more expensive as compared to fiberglass insulation due to its extensive manufacturing process. However, mineral wool has an R-value of 15 in 2×4 walls which makes it a more ideal option for acoustic performance and thermal insulation when compared to other insulation options.
To the untrained eye, the spray foam application process appears deceivingly simple. Just spray on the insulating foam. Let it cure. Cover with sheetrock. Job well done. Or is it? As a pioneering force in the field of spray foam insulation for well over two decades, AirSeal Insulation Systems knows that the analysis, planning and strategy surrounding a building envelope will directly affect the outcome of every job. The understanding of structural design, material application, modern technology and environmental factors all contribute to the effectiveness of an air barrier system. In other words? There’s a serious process involved, and it’s something we make a big deal about.
