Suspended Timber Ground Floors

Application Overview

Within a suspended timber ground floor setup, insulation is positioned amidst the joists and upheld by a supportive framework, such as netting crafted from polypropylene or timber battens. In this context, a pivotal aspect revolves around the insulation’s efficacy in both thermal and acoustic realms.
Our suite of Mineral Wool insulation solutions, tailor-made for suspended timber ground floors, guarantees comprehensive coverage within joist gaps, effectively thwarting any potential air circulation that might result in undesirable heat dissipation.

Why Mineral Wool?

Mineral wool is a versatile insulation material that offers excellent thermal, fire safety, and acoustic performance. It is made from natural materials, such as rock or slag, and is non-combustible. Mineral wool is also moisture-resistant and can be used in a variety of applications, including walls, ceilings, floors, and roofs.

Here are some of the benefits of using mineral wool insulation:

  • High thermal performance: Mineral wool has a high R-value, which means it is very good at preventing heat loss. This can help to reduce energy bills and improve comfort.
  • Fire safety: Mineral wool is non-combustible and can help to protect your home from fire. It is also used in fireproofing applications, such as firewalls and fire doors.
  • Acoustic performance: Mineral wool is an excellent sound insulator. It can help to reduce noise levels in your home and create a more peaceful environment.
  • Easy to install: Mineral wool is easy to install and can be cut to fit any size space. It is also available in a variety of forms, such as batts, rolls, and loose-fill.
  • Environmentally friendly: Mineral wool is made from natural materials and is recyclable. It is a sustainable choice for insulation.
