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
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
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
“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
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.
