MCRMA guide to installing mineral wool insulation

  • 15 Aug 2016

The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has published a new guide on the storage, handling and installation of mineral wool insulation in built-up metal roof and wall cladding systems.

Insulation is one of the most cost-effective ways of saving energy and reducing heating and cooling bills. All buildings must provide protection from the internal and external environment – however the requirements of the internal environment are more dependant on the intended function of the building.

The guidance document, titled ‘GD28 Mineral wool insulation installation: best practice guide’, aims to promote good practice across the industry, covering building envelope performance, efficiency and health and safety.

The document is available to download here.
