1:00pm – 2:00pm Understanding Stone Wool for Interior & Exterior Commercial Building Applications
Presented by Rockwool (Thomas Whipple, Architectural Sales Rockwool)
Qualifies for: 1 AIA/CES LU (HSW) 1 GBCI CE Hour
The net energy savings realized in a properly insulated building are well understood. However, as design professionals strive to maximize thermal resistance, yet reduce mass in the wall assembly, insulation is increasingly being positioned in both the stud wall and the exterior side of the building envelope. This split insulation concept has introduced any number of design issues and concerns; particularly as relates to fire resistance, moisture management, and wall drying rates. This program focuses on the unique properties of stone wool insulation, and suggests how it can improve thermal, fire, water and sound suppression performance in a well detailed wall assembly.
- Explains and shows what stone wool insulation is and how it is manufactured.
- Identifies the differences between stone wool, glass fiber, and foam insulations.
