In addition to its unique environmentally sustainable manufacturing process, ROXUL stone wool insulation is water repellent, non-combustible, sound absorbent, and offers dimensional stability and long-term stable r-values.
R-value represents a product's resistance to heat transfer from one side to the other, a key factor in thermal performance.

ROXUL: The Commercial Insulation for a Better Working Environment
ROXUL provides water resistant insulation that keeps mold, fungus, and bacterial growth out of the office.
Fire-Resistance for a Safer Building
ROXUL's fire resistant insulation keeps your business safe and worry-free. ROXUL stone wool non-combustible insulation can withstand temperatures up to 1177 degrees Celsius, compared to foam plastic's melting point of just 200 degrees Celsius. Standard fire tests are completed before stone wool ignites compared to a near instant melt from the foam plastic insulation alternative, which may also produce toxic smoke while it burns. Stone wool will not contribute to the fire allowing time for building occupants to escape to safety, and more time for fire fighters to arrive and minimize damage to staff health and business property.
Less damage from our non-combustible insulation equals less expense for building recovery and replacement costs. ROXUL Firewall product provides added fire-rated protection for buildings in close proximity; this allows for towers to be built closer together, maximizing an efficient use of limited city commercial space. ROXUL Plus MB, which provides a more lightweight non-combustible insulation solution, is the ideal choice for sustainable commercial builders looking to increase energy efficiency for their projects.
Easy Application and Cost Savings from ROXUL Commercial Insulation
ROXUL fire-resistant, non-combustible insulation is easily applied as a roofing insulation, as it the Plus products can be directly torched for installation. An easy application means a faster, more inexpensive process. This reduces labor costs while increasing safety during installation, as well as for renovation and maintenance projects - resulting in more versatility and savings for your business over the years.
