Stone wool, thanks to its optimal density values, is perfect for thermal insulation acoustic insulator suitable for both plasterboard partitions and for perimeter wall insulation. Stone wool does not fear humidity: even when in contact with wet materials it does not retain moisture and respects the environment. Stone wool is a non-combustible material and does not promote the development of micro-organisms or insects.

The insulation of the roof (or of the attic) limits, in the heating period, the dispersion of heat upwards, improving the comfort conditions of the house, saving energy and therefore reducing CO2 emissions in the environment. Likewise, in summer, insulation helps to limit cold dispersion. Coverage is one of the most critical points of the building, especially for those where the roof represents a signiﬁ cant percentage of the total dispersing surface.
The insulation of the roof consists in the application of a layer of insulating material that prevents the passage of heat from the internal to the external environment during the winter season and vice versa in the summer, limiting the temperature changes that occur during the day.
The products REAL Geo BP-40 BIT, REAL Geo BP-50 BIT, REAL Geo BP-70 BIT or REAL Geo BP-80 BIT, being coated with bitumen, are particularly suitable for this application and therefore facilitate the subsequent application of bituminous membranes.
According to the thermohygrometric conditions of the internal environment, it is good practice to provide a steam barrier under the REAL Geo BP panels, such as the REAL Skin BARRIER polypropylene membrane.
Stone wool panels for insulation of inclined coverings
SLAB ON NON-HEATED ROOMS (GARAGES, PILOTY, OR OPEN SPACES)
The illustrated solution allows to reduce the energy requirements for heating and cooling and – at the same time – to avoid isolating the extrados of the ﬂ oor, reducing the useful height of the overlying environment. The REAL proposal consists in going to isolate the ceiling
to the intrados with the REAL Geo B-050 YA panels covered with a white glass veil and mechanically ﬁ xed to the ﬂ oor structure with mushroom plugs similar to those used in the insulation coat and having a minimum head diameter of 60 mm (as an example, provide 5 panel plugs: 1 at the center and the others at the 4 edges).
This solution offers a long list of advantages:
• Increasing Thermal insulation;
• Absence of thermal bridges given by the continuity of the insulation;
• Increasing acoustic insulation;
• High ﬁ re protection of the ﬂ oor due to the incombustible nature of the REAL Geo B-050 YA stone wool panel;
• Quick installation due to the lightness of the insulating panels and totally dry assembly process;
• Pleasant aesthetics given by the white panel coating;
