Rockwool RW3 100mm

Specialist Acoustic Mineral Wool for Part E Building Regulations Compliance

Rockwool PROROX SL930 Acoustic Mineral Wool (RW3) (60kg per m3) is high-density acoustic mineral wool that is used to treat the 'open spaces', or cavities, between flooring joists, stud-frame walls and ceilings. It is an open-fibrous material that when sound comes in to contact with, turns that sound energy into heat, essentially reducing the sound. Although, it is not used as a standalone and should always be used as part of a system where these open spaces exist. 

Acoustic Mineral Wool helps to prevent Flanking Transmission through the open cavities, and the sound amplifying. Any acoustic system fitted without it will not achieve its full acoustic performance and may fall short of expectations.

Acoustic Mineral Wool has a greater density than thermal wool comparisons which is evident in their slab appearance, the reduction in acoustic insulation for this material in the form of an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) which differs for each thickness, what this essentially means is that it is an absorptive material as opposed to a dense, heavy soundproofing product. You will find all acoustic systems that Acoustic Mineral Wool is featured in, which there is most, by selecting the 'Systems' tab above.
