rava v Porubě nebo pro Slezskou univerzitu v Karviné,“ uvádí Peter Kriško, obchodní manažer ROCKWOOL, a.s. „Mezi nejvýznamnější naši referenci patří jednoznačně JAGUAR LAND ROVER v Nitře,
kde jsme dodávali více než 1 000 kamionů izolací. Nehořlavé izolace byly aplikovány rovněž při výstavbě velkých logistických center v Česku i na Slovensku,“ pokračuje dále Peter Kriško.
Výrobky skupiny ROCKWOOL se také podílely na renovaci Eiffelovy věže nebo na stavbě tehdejší největší výletní lodi na světě Harmony of the Seas.
Rockwool: A Global Producer
of Non-combustible Stone Wool Insulation
Rockwool, a.s., headquartered in Bohumín, is a member of the Danish group Rockwool, a leading global producer of insulation made of stone wool. The company has been producing and delivering products and system solutions to increase energy performance, fire safety, and building acoustics for over eighty years. Rockwool production facilities can be found in thirty-nine countries around the world, and the products are sold on markets in over one hundred countries. Rockwool started doing business in the Czech Republic in 1993, and the plant in Bohumín began the production of Rockwool insulation in 1998. The implementation of Rockwool insulation ranges from houses and residential blocks, commercial and industrial buildings to large warehouses and production halls. Insulation from stone wool is also used in processing, automotive, and maritime industries. Environmentally-friendly and Safe Homes In addition to the wide spectrum of applications, Rockwool products and system solutions are environmentallyfriendly. In the long run, they enhance the energy performance of buildings, contribute to the reduction of pollutant emissions, and support sustainability. We guarantee their life-span for decades. Stone wool is non-combustible and resists temperatures of up to 1,000°C. It is therefore one of the safest insulations, considerably increasing building fire safety. Thanks to its acoustic properties it enhances the acoustic-comfort levels of buildings, as it absorbs and reduces sound and noise. Vapour-permeable stone wool supports a healthy microclimate within the building and improves living standards.
Rockwool in Bohumín The production plant in Bohumín is a European centre of technical insulations. This is where mostly technical insulation is made, such as pipeline pouches and mats used to reduce heat loss in large production plants, which can also be used in housing and commercial blocks. Thanks to a new state-of-the art recycling line, which is the most modern out of all ROCKWOOL Group, designed to recycle all stone waste, 100% of this disposable waste is recycled. “Our own briquette plant turns 100% of the stone wool production waste into genuine products. Now we are able to produce raw material (briquettes) necessary for stone wool production, and we do not need to import it any more. Getting the waste recycling line in operation helps us significantly reduce the impact on the environment, and also decreases the dust exposure in the plant. The operation of the new line will considerably lower truck traffic in our region too,” says Paweł Pomykała, manager of the production plant. New Products, New Solutions Rockwool brings new products and innovations to the market: we have created a new portfolio of façade solutions to make the choice of proper insulation easier. The façade insulation now features the new product range Frontrock, designed for wall/façade insulation in contact method
(Etics), and the product range Ventirock is designed for wall/façade insulation using the ventilated method. ROCKWOOL Insulation: Part of Major Global and Local References “Our insulation is a part of numerous fascinating constructions. Rockwool insulation is found currently in the tallest building in the Czech Republic, the AZ Tower in Brno administration block. We supplied the projects of Forum Nová Karolina in Ostrava, Hyundai Nošovice, the reconstruction of VŠB-TU Ostrava campus in Poruba, and Silesian University in Karvina with products from Bohumín,“ says Peter Kriško, sales manager of Rockwool. “Our most prestigious reference undoubtedly is the Jaguar Land Rover production plant in Nitra, a project which we supplied with more than one thousand trucks of insulation. Non-combustible insulation has also been distributed to the construction sites of large logistic centres in the Czech and Slovak Republics,” Kriško added. Rockwool Group products were also used in the renovation of the Eiffel Tower and the construction of the then largest holiday cruiser in the world, Harmony of the Seas.
