It is clear that stone wool is a versatile and effective solution for multiple applications. It offers not only thermal qualities and savings on heating and energy, but also provides a barrier to fire, repels water and absorbs sound. Stone wool insulation is quick and easy to cut and fit, and eliminates issues with unintended gaps, sagging and slumping over time that can inhibit insulation performance.
