ROCKWOOL® creates Resource Hub for ventilated façade solutions

4th March, 2021

As ventilated façades continue to grow in popularity, due to their versatility and contribution to energy efficiency, ROCKWOOL has developed a specialist hub to aid the specification of insulation for within the cladding system. Through this new online area, specifiers can access up-to-date technical literature, CPD modules and case studies detailing the manufacturer's stone wool insulation solutions in use.

With ventilated façade systems often used in high rise construction, the Resource Hub has a comprehensive range of learning modules on effective specification in tall buildings. The new hub also features a 3D virtual demonstration area where visitors can explore through-wall build-ups and learn more about the benefits of dual-density technology.

Understanding that projects require readily-available product data and a strong 'golden thread', especially in the case of multi-occupancy buildings, the Ventilated Façade Resource Hub, found at, includes a range of digital tools to aid specification, including a BIM solutions finder.

Commenting on the launch of the new hub, Will Wigfield, Product Manager at ROCKWOOL, said: "The design freedom offered by ventilated façade systems can be fully realised with ROCKWOOL non-combustible insulation.

"Through this new hub, specifiers can make sure they're up to speed with the latest guidance on materials for ventilated façade systems, along with the quickly-evolving building regulations on high rise buildings too."

ROCKWOOL provides non-combustible stone wool insulation solutions for ventilated rainscreen cladding systems, suitable for all building types – including high rise applications. As well as providing excellent thermal and acoustic performance, such solutions can minimise the risk of fire spread.
