To comply with the government’s Future Homes Standard, all homes and businesses will have to meet strict energy efficiency targets. ROCKWOOL, the UK’s leading stone wool insulation manufacturer, has launched the new Retrofitting Rainscreen Insulation and Cladding CPD (Continuing Professional Development) module to support building contractors and specifiers with advice on how to increase the energy efficiency of existing buildings by retrofitting non-combustible insulation.
