Knauf Insulation has become the first manufacturer in Europe to achieve a DECLARE ‘Red List Free’ label for rock mineral wool products.

The manufacturer’s unfaced rock mineral wool range, made with ECOSE® Technology, has received the label. This follows ‘Red List Free’ accreditation for its entire glass mineral wool range in 2021.

The DECLARE label allows architects and specifiers to see what is in a product to help them make informed choices. It includes a ‘nutrition-style’ list of ingredients, and whether it contains chemicals featured on the DECLARE ‘Red List’ – substances designated as harmful to health and the environment, such as added formaldehyde. It also includes information about where a product comes from.

Knauf Insulation launches first online condensation risk tool

Knauf Insulation has launched the industry’s first online condensation risk analysis tool. It will save architects and specifiers time by enabling them to evaluate the risk of interstitial condensation and generate U-value calculations in less than five minutes.

“Interstitial condensation can result in rot or corrosion within the structure,” explained Bradley Hirst, Technical Services Manager at Knauf Insulation. “So calculations evaluating this risk give architects and specifiers peace of mind that their design will not cause unintended damage to the building’s fabric.”
