ROXUL ROCKWOOL India is part of ROCKWOOL Asia and the ROCKWOOL Group, with a manufacturing facility in Dahej, Gujarat and a corporate office in Mumbai. The company’s expertise is perfectly suited to tackle many of today’s biggest sustainability and development challenges, from energy consumption and noise pollution to fire resilience.

Energy efficiency is becoming an increasingly important economic and social consideration in the face of rising energy costs. Using energy more efficiently can result in paying lower energy bills, yet being able to accomplish the same tasks, whether at home or the workplace. The International Energy Agency suggested that focusing on reducing thermal transmission will bring the biggest effect to the energy consumption of the building. One of the most cost effective and readily available ways to reduce thermal transmission is by insulating the building envelope.

Regardless of building types, roof systems play an essential role in preventing heat from penetrating into the rooms below. Houses in India often suffer from extreme difference in temperatures, very cold in winter whereas on hot days roof temperatures can go up to 70-degree-C. Insulation in roofs, especially metal roof constructions, is essential to minimise the energy costs to cool or heat the building. Roof insulation is therefore a key component of the roof, as it improves the performance of the roof system in terms of thermal, acoustic and fire benefits, ensuring that occupants are comfortable and safe, explains Vinay Pratap Singh, Business Unit Director, ROXUL ROCKWOOL India.

He adds, “ROCKWOOL Cool ’n’ Comfort insulation is specially developed to help owners and users minimise the impact of the weather on building, save energy for cooling or heating and maintain a comfortable indoor environment. Furthermore, its long lasting and durable nature ensures buildings are kept at its optimal performance over the life time of the building.”

Cool ’n’ Comfort also gives better protection against noise from traffic and rain and is able to achieve the highest level of fire safety in European Norms Class A (EN13501-1), thereby slowing down the spread of fire for escape and rescue efforts.

Cool ‘n’ Comfort is formulated with a special water repellent coating on each strand of the insulation fibres, enabling it to repel rain water that its comes into contact with, at the same time securing its excellent thermal and acoustic performance even after exposure to water.

ROCKWOOL Cool ’n’ Comfort is a versatile insulation for roof systems in commercial, industrial and residential buildings such as for auditoriums, warehouses, airports, stadiums, enclosed car parks and manufacturing facilities to name a few.
