Rockwool Marine & Offshore Acoustic Manual
ROCKWOOL manufactures a wide range of products for marine insulation purposes. ROCKWOOL’s unique, specially developed fire insulation products can be used everywhere on-board ships, e.g. deck and bulkhead constructions, engine rooms, pipe and air ducts, doors and panels and floating floors.
Stone wool insulation for effective fire protection
Special attention must be paid to fire safety requirements, which makes ROCKWOOL insulation the natural choice. ROCKWOOL products are based on stone wool, which cannot burn and which will withstand temperatures of up to 1,000°C without melting.
Thus ROCKWOOL stone wool provides the best guarantee for effective fire protection on-board ships.
Superior marine fire protection insulation
ROCKWOOL ship fire protection systems surpass the most stringent standards of structural stability and integrity, limiting the spread of fire and protecting personnel and equipment.
ROCKWOOL offers a variety of different solutions based on slab, wired mat or combinations of both.
Fires on ship installations can be categorised as cellulosic. Cellulosic fire conditions are typified by burning timber and upholstery. ROCKWOOL’s Marine Firebatts 100 and Marine Firebatts 130 products provide cellulosic fire protection to A30 and A60 standards for bulkheads and decks.
A wide range of stone wool insulation products
Besides fire insulation for A&H constructions, ROCKWOOL can offer a wide range of specially developed and approved products for applications such as comfort insulation, floating floors and technical insulation.
