Product Summary

Acoustic mineral wool is a product designed to work specifically at reducing the passage of airborne sound. It will also help reduce reverberant sound. It is important to differentiate it from light weight loft insulation which weighs only around 12kg/m3.

Product Application

The typical application for acoustic mineral wool is to act to absorb sound passing through a void. The mineral wool acts to absorb sound and reduce reverberation. Please note that this is not a loft type insulation type wool but a high density wool specifically designed to combat noise. Anything on a roll is simply not dense enough.

Instructions for use

The density of Acoustic Mineral Wool (starting at 60kg/m3) is specifically designed to be more efficient than many alternative methods of sound control and is the optimum solution when looking for an effective acoustic insulation to give added soundproofing control when installed between the joists of floors and into stud partitions. 
60kg AMW typically provides a reduction in airborne noise levels of up to 4-5dB when fitted in between floor/ceiling joists. 
60kg AMW typically provides a reduction in reverberant noise levels of up to 10dB when fitted in ceIling constructions.

We often recommend acoustic mineral wool under the floors when carrying out soundproofing work next to a party wall. This will help in cutting out sound which will travel through the party wall under the floor boards. Ideally the void should be packed and the mineral wool applied about 0.6-1m deep hard against the party wall. Filling the void. See party wall solutions

It is non-flammable and chemically inert and is not adversely affected by any substance it may come into contact with. Random arrangement of fibres ensures no water penetration in any direction. It is rot proof, non-hygroscopic, does not sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of fungi, moulds or bacteria.
