Superglass Acoustic Insulation

(3 Products)

Superglass Acoustic Insulation are non-combustible glass mineral wool insulation products that offer excellent sound absorption performance. These rolls provide thermal and acoustic insulation between and over common stud/joist spacings, leading to minimal gaps.

If you're looking for a sound-absorbing insulation solution, Superglass' Acoustic Insulation Rolls showcase a low density, meaning more sound is absorbed into the material, in turn improving the acoustics within a project.

In summary, both the Superglass Multi Acoustic and Partition Roll are designed to provide thermal and acoustic insulation in a range of applications whilst adhering to environmental guidelines.

What Are Superglass Acoustic Insulation Rolls?

Superglass uses its innovative glass mineral wool insulation roll material to assist the product's performance in domestic use. Glass mineral wool insulation rolls have excellent sound absorption capabilities due to their internal micro-structure of interwoven fibres. Manufactured through a process in which glass is melted and spun, glass fibre strands are produced, these strands are then bundled together to create a wool. 

As a result of this process, millions of tiny air pockets are made, which promote the absorption of sound waves, dissimilar to other insulation types that act as a passage for sound to pass through.

  • Superglass Acoustic Partition Roll: Produced with a minimum density of 10kg/m³, the low density means sound energy is lessened. Supplied at 25, 40, and 50mm thicknesses providing various levels of sound absorption and thermal conductivity.
  • Superglass Multi Acoustic Roll: Produced with a minimum density of 10kg/m³ and supplied at 60, 75, 80, 100mm thicknesses providing various levels of sound absorption and thermal conductivity.

Additionally, combined with the levels of thicknesses, the flexible roll ensures adaptability between varying spacings, projects and applications.

Where Can Superglass Acoustic Insulation Be Used?

  • Superglass Acoustic Partition Roll: Primarily used as a partition insulation for internal walls and floors. The roll is also partially perforated at 2x600mm widths or uncut at 1200mm.
  • Superglass Multi Acoustic Roll: Generally used as insulation between common stud/joist spacings, minimising gaps in between joints. The roll is also partially perforated at either 2x600mm widths or 3x400mm.

Frequently Asked Superglass Acoustic Roll Questions

Can Superglass Acoustic Insulation Work As A Thermal Insulant?

You'll notice that acoustic insulation rolls will still have thermal insulation properties such as an optimal thermal conductivity metric ranging from. 0.036-0.044 W/mK. So in summary, yes they can still work as a thermal solution. However, explore our thermal insulation roll range.

What Is APR Insulation?

APR stands for Acoustic Partition Roll.

How Does The Low Density Of Superglass Acoustic Insulation Affect Its Acoustic Properties?

For better acoustics and resonance within a space, materials with a lower density are more suitable. The fibre matrix of glass mineral wool allows sound to be absorbed within the voids of the material, rather than reflecting sound energy like high-density materials.
