Acoustic Roll

Acoustic Roll
  • Excellent sound absorption properties
    Lightweight, and easy to install
    Dimensioned to suit studs with 600mm centres
    Long roll lengths for quick and economic Installation
    Friction fits between studs, ensuring continuity of the absorbent layer with no air gaps

Acoustic Roll is designed specifically for the sound insulation of metal stud partitions. Using mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions will significantly improve their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to the overall mass of the structure. The mineral wool complements the gypsum board by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing reverberation. It also has the effect of reducing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities. Acoustic Rolls are 1220mm wide and ready-cut to produce two 610mm wide rolls.

Performance

Acoustic

Acoustic Roll has exceptional acoustic absorption properties.

Fire

Acoustic Roll is classified as Euroclass A1 to BS EN 13501-1.

Description

Acoustic Roll is a flexible glass mineral wool quilt which is lightweight, flexible, resilient and non-combustible. Acoustic Rolls are 1220mm wide and ready-cut to two, 610mm wide rolls and manufactured to a minimum density of 16Kg/m3.

Benefits

  • Excellent sound absorption properties
  • Lightweight, and easy to install
  • Dimensioned to suit studs with 600mm centres
  • Long roll lengths for quick and economic Installation
  • Friction fits between studs, ensuring continuity of the absorbent layer with no air gaps

Application

Acoustic Roll is specifically designed for friction fitting between studs at 600mm centres to improve the sound insulation of:

  • separating walls and floors
  • internal walls and floors
  • timber and metal stud partitions

Acoustic Roll is also designed for friction fitting between resilient timber battens and timber studs in Robust Detail separating floors and walls.

Acoustic Roll provides a high level of sound absorption, whilst also improving the thermal and fire performance of the wall, floor or partition. Using glass mineral wool as a sound absorbent layer in partitions and floors significantly improves their acoustic performance, whilst only adding minimally to the overall mass of the structure. In partitions glass mineral wool complements the plasterboard linings by absorbing airborne sound in the cavity and reducing reverberation, it is particularly effective at preventing the hollow sound that can occur in partitions with unfilled cavities.

Acoustic Roll represents no known threat to the environment and has zero Ozone Depletion Potential and zero Global Warming Potential.

ECOSE® Technology

Knauf Insulation mineral wool products with ECOSE® Technology benefit from a no added formaldehyde binder, which is up to 70% less energy intensive than traditional binders and is made from rapidly renewable bio-based materials instead of petroleum-based chemicals.

The technology has been developed for Knauf Insulation’s glass and rock mineral wool products, enhancing their environmental credentials without affecting the thermal, acoustic or fire performance. Insulation products made with ECOSE Technology contain no dye or artificial colours.

Standards

Acoustic Roll is manufactured in accordance with BS EN 13162, OHSAS 18001 Occupational Health and Safety Management Systems, ISO 14001 Environmental Management Systems, and ISO 9001 Quality Management Systems, as certified by Bureau Veritas.

Durability

Acoustic Roll is odourless, rot proof, non-hygroscopic, does not sustain vermin and will not encourage the growth of fungi, mould or bacteria.

Handling and storage

Acoustic Roll is easy to handle and install, being lightweight and easily cut to size, where necessary. It is supplied enclosed in polythene which is designed for short term protection only. For longer term protection on site, the product should be stored either indoors, or under cover and off the ground. Earthwool Acoustic Roll should not be left permanently exposed to the elements.
