Steel deck structures, constructed as warm roofs and often made with a small slope, are typically used in connection with larger industrial or commercial buildings. In recent years, however, construction has become more commonplace for offices and even residential buildings.
Effective steel deck insulation can create a more comfortable living and working environment for inhabitants or workers, providing an important layer of acoustic protection against nuisance noise caused by overhead aircraft or the impact of weather, and thermal protection when the climate is especially hot or cold.
In the long-term, insulation can also reduce energy costs by lowering the amount of energy needed to heat or cool the inside of the building.
The main benefits of quality steel roof insulation include:
- Energy efficiency – up to 25 percent of energy is often lost through the roof of a poorly insulated building, leading to large energy bills.
- Increased fire safety – stone wool provides an extra layer of protection against the spread of fire and smoke.
- Acoustic blocking – our insulation offers an extra layer of protection from noise pollution. It also prevents noise from industry escaping into nearby residential areas.
