Why EnSave Rockwool stone wool?

Why choose EnSave Rockwool stone wool?
EnSave Rockwool products provide outstanding performance on the service grounds of the Thermal Insulation, Acoustic control and fire resistance .They will give effective protection and ensure an optimal performance for the lifetime of the installation.

Sustainable: Independent assessments show that Rockwool is among the most sustainable products available anywhere, leading to an unrivalled combination of environmental savings, energy reduction, sound insulation and fire safety.

Positive carbon footprint: The more you consume the less you pollute. Insulation is one of the few products that offer this luxury. In its lifetime Rockwool insulation saves more than 20,000 times the C02 emitted for the production.

Long lasting: Rockwool is made by melting volcanic rock which is spun into fibres and bonded into slabs, pipe sections or wired mats. Relying on trapped air for its thermal properties, the use of natural / inorganic materials and our unique production process ensures a long lifetime. Rockwool will give effective protection and ensure an optimal performance for the lifetime of the insulation.

Safe: Rockwool is one of the safest materials in the event of a fire; it is non-combustible and does not emit any toxic fumes. It is safe material to work with as well as to use in our homes and buildings. This has been confirmed by the latest regulations and tests on product safety.

Effective: The insulation for buildings and technical installations installed around the world in one year will save nearly 4000 million tonnes of C02 in its lifetime. Investing in the insulation of hot pipes and processes can be extremely profitable, with annual returns on investment

What is Rockwool?
Rockwool is a wholly natural material spun into wool from rock. EnSave Rockwool is a natural material formed from one of the earth's most abundant materials - volcanic diabase rock over 200 million years old. Rockwool uses diabase rock from the closest source. This reduces the transport compared to sourcing from further afield and lowers the overall carbon footprint of the Rockwool product. The Rockwool process resembles the natural action of the volcano: Rockwool is made by melting rock, limestone and recycled briquettes with other raw materials at 1500°C in a coke heated cupola furnace. The resultant liquid stone melt is spun into fibres. Binder and impregnating oil are added to make the material stable and water repellent. The Rockwool is then heated to about 200°C in order to cure the binder and stabilize the material for final processing into a variety of products. Environmental equipment - filters, pre-heaters, after-burners, and other cleaning and collection systems - makes the 'tamed volcano' an environmentally responsible process. Rockwool is sometimes referred to as stone wool and is part of the larger group of mineral wools.

Insulation pays off

Industry accounts for 26% of annual energy consumption and almost 40% of total energy-related C02 emissions. Over recent decades, industrial energy efficiency has improved and C02 intensity declined in many sectors. But this progress has been offset by growing industrial production worldwide. Projections of future energy use and emissions show that without decisive action, these trends will continue. Energy prices will continue to rise.
