Prefabricated building elements need to be resilient, robust and add real value to the finished construction. 

Our custom stone wool core insulation solutions are easily integrated into your manufacturing process, providing OEM offsite construction with seamless, high-quality results.

But partnering with ROCKWOOL Core Solutions1 offers more than just bespoke insulation.

Our specialists act as an extension of your business, helping to optimise operations through best practice guidance, supply chain communication and quality assurance through testing.   

Learn how ROCKWOOL Core Solutions can help you create sustainable, effective and energy-efficient solutions for your prefabricated building manufacture.

Why do we need insulation for prefabricated building elements?

Modular and prefabricated buildings need to be just as energy efficient, fire resilient and noise resistant as other types of construction.

It can be far easier, however, to introduce fire protection, acoustic absorption and thermal regulation properties to prefabricated building elements pre-construction, ultimately improving the structure as a whole.

A partnership with ROCKWOOL Core Solutions can enhance the individual parts of prefabricated buildings offsite – before they are assembled. We work with you to create the best prefabricated elements possible, such as insulated precast concrete walls.

Integrating quality insulation at this stage avoids extra time, work and materials needed at a later stage, ensuring prefabricated buildings meet the needs of their occupants right away.

Our core stone wool insulation is2:

  • Customisable to your process needs, and according to the performance, dimension and/or mechanical strengths required for the building element
  • Highly durable
  • Highly sustainable and recyclable

Calculator and savings

The amount of stone wool core insulation required will depend on the size and shape of the prefabricated building elements you manufacture.

As well as customising stone wool for physical feasibility, we can also manipulate the fibre orientation to deliver various performance enhancements and mechanical strengths3.  

Our customised stone wool design capabilities can provide solutions that integrate into products of varying dimensions and performance focuses. 

Specialists will support your operations along the way, from purchase order to quality satisfaction, to save time and reduce waste.

Stone wool enhances the thermal regulation of structures. By improving the energy efficiency of construction components for prefabricated buildings, you can pass on these energy savings to occupants.

FAQs

FAQs

What are the advantages of prefabricated materials?

Creating prefabricated building components can save time, as work takes place offsite – parallel to what’s happening with the construction process. It can also ensure greater consistency, increase quality, and reduce waste. 

Is it beneficial to install insulation in prefabricated building elements?

Yes. Quality insulation cores can greatly enhance the thermal and acoustic performance of the finished construction, especially in the case of stone wool – which also improves fire protection. Integrating stone wool insulation offsite ensures a high level of quality and consistency, giving the end user the ‘plug and play’ capability when arriving onsite.

Is prefabricated construction sustainable?

Upfront planning in the creation of prefabricated elements can lead to less materials being used to create the finished structure, and reduced waste. Integrating quality insulation during the manufacturing process also improves the energy efficiency and sustainability of finished buildings.
