ROXUL SAFE MINERAL WOOL SAFING INSULATION
Roxul products are mineral wool fiber insulations made from basalt rock and slag. This combination results in a noncombustible product with a melting point of approximately 2150°F, which gives it excellent fire resistance properties. Roxul mineral wool is a water repellent yet vapour permeable material.
Roxul Safe product is a non-combustible, lightweight and water repellent semi-rigid insulation batt that provides fire stopping and acoustical insulation properties. Specifically engineered and produced as a fire stopping material for commercial, industrial and residential buildings, Roxul Safe can be used for the following applications:
- Perimeter gaps between concrete floor slabs and exterior wall systems,
- Around conduit pipe and duct openings through walls and floor slabs,
- Between fire walls and ceiling slabs.
This product has excellent fire performance properties, such as high melt temperature and low thermal conductivity which means the insulation acts as a shield against fire and temperature. In addition, Roxul products are subject to very little shrinkage in the critical phase of a fire, so the insulation layers remain in place to better prohibit the spread of flame. Roxul Safe is intended to be used in conjunction with a fire sealant to prevent the passage of fire and smoke.
