ROCKWOOL Launches Flat Roof Zoning Tool to Support Design and Specification

ROCKWOOL has unveiled a new flat roof zoning tool designed to help specifiers and roofing contractors balance performance criteria, regulation compliance and design targets when choosing insulation.

Hosted on the ROCKWOOL website, the tool has been created in recognition of the increasing prominence of flat roofs in contemporary building design.

The new tool simplifies and optimises insulation design by zoning flat roofs according to how each area will be used. Users start by drawing a plan outline of the roof, then create zones before setting properties for each area. Via the tool, incorporate details including rain noise performance (BB93); airborne noise reduction; thermal performance; and product mechanical strength. Once inputted, the tool recommends the best ROCKWOOL non-combustible stone wool insulation for each roof zone.

With time-saving at its heart, the ROCKWOOL Flat Roof Zoning Tool allows results to be easily exported for integration into wider design and specification plans.
