“Productivity and efficiency can be achieved only step by step with sustained hard work, relentless attention to details and insistence on the highest standards of quality and performance.” – J. R. D. Tata
The most critical and vital difference of rockwool panels with other species of similar products is the core of stone wool.Stone wool is a special core for the panels area, as well as beyond the insulation provides additional fire protection, sound insulation and sound absorption. The inspiring, contemporary styles constructions show ever increasing requirements for the benefits of mineral wool because of the urgent need for security infrastructure, good audio quality need special buildings and of course due to the global awareness of environmental protection and human life.
Furthermore is an ecological and 100% recyclable material, placing it in the category of inspiring, contemporary styles materials with increasingly high demand and rapid development.
Stone wool belongs to inorganic fibrous materials. The inorganic fibers are rockwool origin of volcanic rocks,with high heat resistance.The inorganic nature of the mineral wool makes a material with high resistance to fire, which is why some types are grouped in Class A1 fire resistance.In contrast, the polyurethane foam melts easily, so be dangerous in case of fire, firstly because certain types are extremely flammable and on the other hand, because during combustion it produces toxic gases.Furthermore, the flexible form of the mineral wool makes it able to cover convex and cylindrical surfaces.
Thanks to the strength of the mineral wool fibers at high temperatures (up to 1000 0C), the mineral wool panels slow down the transmission of heat, prevent the spread of fire and make the shells that make fire resistant.
Because of toweling and gaps between the mineral wool fibers absorb sound waves and prevent the propagation of sound, offering a solution to whoever places suffer noise nuisance or require acoustic improvement.
By using stone wool saves energy and limit CO2 emissions. The insulation comes from the natural airway structure. Bears chemical gases, so no risk of deterioration of the insulating property with the passage of time.
Even when the fire resistance is not a primary consideration when developing a project, the choice of rockwool blocks the emission of toxic gases in case of fire and only thus enable the fire brigade intervention.
It is 100% recyclable material, as the return of the producer can be realized and reproduced rockwool in any desired form.
The mineral wool used in the panels is specifically designed for this use, to combine beyond the characteristics of thermal insulation, sound insulation and fire resistance, in addition to high mechanical strength.
It is applied in strip form (lamella), the fibers having vertically relative to the steel surface, ensuring thus optimum inertial characteristics.
Produced from 97% fossil and renewable natural materials, and only 3% consists of resins, which minimize the Water Absorption.
In M.o.T. Panels, all of our steel used for the production of rockwool panels is of higher quality of Hot Dip Galvanized S280GD + Z acc. to EN10346 with a minimum zinc coating of 140gr/m² (Z140) for the inner side of the panels and 200gr/m² (Z200) for the outer steel.
Thickness of the steel may vary above 0,50mm which is the minimum recommended thickness for mineral wool panels and up to 1mm.
