Specialist Acoustic Mineral Wool for Part E Building Regulations Compliance
Knauf Acoustic Mineral Wool (RS60) (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 battened ceilings. As Acoustic Mineral Wool is a fibrous material, it helps to lessen sound energy by turning it into heat, helping to decrease the remaining noise ‘bouncing’ around inside the cavity and amplifying. As a standalone product, it is only effective against very light background noise issues. We recommend Knauf Acoustic Mineral Wool to be used as part of a system when a cavity is created or existing.
Acoustic Mineral Wool will also help to prevent Flanking Transmission adjacent cavities. Any soundproofing system fitted without this material will not achieve its complete acoustic performance and may fall short of expectations or essential acoustic regulations.
Acoustic Mineral Wool has a greater density than thermal wool, and this is evident in their slab appearance. The reduction as an acoustic insulation material comes as an absorptive rating NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) which differs for each thickness. This means that it is an absorptive material as opposed to a dense soundproofing product. You will find all acoustic systems that Acoustic Mineral Wool is featured in by selecting the ‘Systems’ tab above. Here you will see how vital it is!
