Knauf Insulation has provided a bespoke service to Rollalong Modular Buildings by supplying a selection of custom made glass mineral wool insulation, comprising a Euroclass A Fire Rating and a thermal conductivity of 0.037 W/mK, to suit a number of modular houses.
Rollalong specialises in constructing off site developments, available in a variety of shapes and sizes. The lightweight, steel framed buildings can reach up to seven stories high and comply with all UK Building Regulations. Rollalong products are particularly popular within Ministry of Defence accommodation, so much so that in recent years it has delivered over 1,000 bedrooms for military personnel at sites across the country.
“The innovative design of Rollalong’s modular buildings mean they require very specific insulation thicknesses that need to be pre-cut,” comments Martin Sayers, managing director of Rollalong. “Knauf Insulation was prepared to go beyond the call of duty, by producing a bespoke insulation to meet our exact needs.”
Knauf Insulation offered Rollalong a selection of its glass mineral wool insulation in various thicknesses, in order to meet the challenging demands that modular buildings present. Glass mineral wool is widely recognised as one of the most sustainable insulation materials available, due to its high content of recycled glass bottles and the fact that it is recyclable at the end of a building’s life.
To highlight its growing emphasis on sustainability, Knauf Insulation has recently unified its rock and glass mineral wool range under a single name- Earthwool- which utilises the innovative ECOSE® Technology. Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE® Technology benefit from a revolutionary, new formaldehyde free binder technology, based on rapidly renewable materials instead of petro-based chemicals. It reduces embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability. Thermal insulation properties, fire resistance, fire classification, acoustical insulation, sound absorption and mechanical properties as well as the high levels of recycled content are maintained, with improved product durability.
Lydia Sharples, head of communications for Northern Europe at Knauf Insulation comments, “We are committed to providing our customers with the most sustainable insulation products on the market, without compromising on performance. We have been able to work with Rollalong to ensure its modular houses were insulated to the highest standards.”
