Scandinavian Homes: Case Study

Mr Richardson wanted a well-insulated mobile home he could live in all year round without needing to wear thermals in Winter.

He contacted Scandinavian Homes with his ideas for a ‘forever mobile’, and less than a year later, he was able to move his furniture over from his draughty old caravan and is now looking forward to being toasty-warm and dry this coming winter.

ROCKWOOL® launches NyRock® technology to create lowest lambda stone wool in the UK

ROCKWOOL has launched NyRock technology an evolution in stone wool composition that produces the most thermally efficient stone wool insulation available in the UK.

This next generation stone wool has a more efficient fibre structure that can deliver thermal conductivity as low as 0.032 W/mK. Critically, this means that U-values can be met with comparatively thinner constructions, which in the case of external wall applications, creates the potential for additional interior floor space over a building footprint.

Alongside these new advantages, NyRock technology still delivers all the additional benefits of stone wool including durability, ability to be recycled indefinitely and acoustic and fire performance. Comprising naturally non-combustible volcanic rock, stone wool can withstand temperatures in excess of 1000oC.

NyRock technology will be rolled out during 2022. Register for updates here.
