Rock Wool: Insuring that Silence Is Golden


How important is noise management in the work environment?

Very important, as it turns out. Workplace noise pollution is serious enough that it can have damaging effects on the health and productivity of employees.

Research has shown that workplace noise pollution can:

  • Disrupt concentration
  • Create distractions
  • Exacerbate stress
  • Decrease productivity
  • Decrease motivation

When considering insulation for an office or other workplace use, remember that it’s not just about temperature control, it’s also about noise control and about creating an office experience that allows employees to work and feel their best.

One of the more popular insulating materials available on the market today is rock wool. Rock wool is a traditional insulating material literally “spun” from rock and sand. As a result, it’s eco-friendly, an important attribute in today’s building and construction. Rock wool is fire-resistant and can help improve the efficacy of firewalls. It works well in maintaining interior building temperatures and deflecting exterior temperature changes. Rock wool is cost effective and in its board form, light and easy to install.

Rock wool also has excellent sound barrier qualities and is effectively utilized for mitigating noise pollution.

Rock wool pipe insulation is employed specifically for pipes, tanks, boilers, and water heaters in order to cancel plumbing sounds.

Vibrations and noise coming from other floors and adjacent rooms can also be a distraction in the workplace. These can be cancelled by use of rock wool blanket insulation placed in ceilings and floors.

Workplace productivity and employee health and satisfaction are important considerations with long term consequences.
