Performance Thermal ROCKWOOL FLEXI is available in a range of thicknesses and widths, with a thermal conductivity of 0.038 W/mK, and 0.035 W/mK at 140mm thicknesses and above. Fire classification ROCKWOOL FLEXI® achieves a reaction to fire classification of A1, as defined in EN13501-1. Thermal applications – timber frame walls The additional thermal benefits offered by using high performance (HP) breather membranes (BM) and vapour control layers (VCL) over standard membranes are shown below. Effective thermal resistance (R-values) comparisons used for external cavities are as follows: a....

Thermal applications - floors Suspended timber floor ROCKWOOL FLEXI® is installed between the floor joists, supported by polypropylene netting or a breather membrane. The insulation should be fitted as close as is practical to the underside of floor deck to avoid any air gaps: The P/A (perimeter area) ratio is determined by dividing the total of the exposed perimeter length of the floor by the area of the floor.

Fire protection: Upgrading existing timber floor to achieve one hour fire resistance 1 hour fire resistant floor based on fire test to BS476: Part 21 using ROCKWOOL FLEXI®. Remove existing floor boards and install a continuous run of 25mm ø chicken wire mesh across the whole floor. Form the mesh so that it follows the profile of the joists and the top face of the ceiling lining. 100mm ROCKWOOL FLEXI® is to fit tightly between the joists and supported by the mesh. Lay new floor of either 19mm flooring grade t&g chipboard or square edged boards with a layer of 3mm hardboard above or below the...
