New insulation solution offers low embodied carbon

Knauf Insulation has launched FactoryClad Roll 35, a non-combustible glass mineral wool solution for built-up metal walls and roofs. The company says it has the lowest embodied carbon of any equivalent 35 lambda mineral wool product on the UK market.

The product was developed to insulate the 12,000m2 roof of the new Co-op Live arena in Manchester, one of Europe's largest and most sustainable live entertainment arenas.

FactoryClad Roll 35 is non-combustible with the best Euroclass A1 reaction to fire classification. Made of mineral wool, it acts as a sound absorbent lining within built-up metal roofs, so can help control the reverberation of internal sound.

It comes in five thicknesses between 60 and 220mm and is manufactured as 1,200mm wide for speed of fitting.

FactoryClad Roll 35 is backed up by a wide range of sustainability credentials. It's manufactured with ECOSE® Technology, Knauf Insulation's bio-based binder that contains no added phenol or formaldehyde and is 70% less energy-intensive to manufacture than traditional binders.
