Energy SavingVolcanic Wool stone wool products boast the highest thermal conductivity and R values compared to other forms of mineral based insulation thus enabling the product to be in full compliance with SANS 10400 – XA: Energy usage within buildings.
Our product is able to support energy savings within buildings by firstly, minimizing heat losses through the most common area, your roof by up to 35%. Over and above this, approximately 25% of heat is generally lost through walls and 10 – 20 % through floors. By having a fully insulated building utilizing our products, you would be able to reduce these losses in totality and this would save up to 75% of your energy usage for heating or cooling at any given time.
Our product also has a lifespan of up to 50 years without any tangible erosion, this means you would not need to replace the product and would be able to reap the benefits as time goes by.
Volcanic Wool Stone Wool Benefits
VOLCANIC WOOL stone wool is made of 100% natural stone. We do not use slag in our production. Slag is the metal manufacturing waste product. When used in the stone wool production it may decrease the price for the materials but at the same time decreasing the products thermal properties.
