Insulation for Steel Stud Frame Walls
U-value CalculatorStart your U-value calculation >
In a concrete framed or heavy steel framed building the areas between the structural frame will be filled with light steel framing (LSF, or SFS) and this studwork zone will more than likely need to be insulated to comply with Building Regulation requirements.
With many of these buildings extending far above ground level it is important to select the correct insulation product for use within the stud zone, this usually means a non-combustible insulation product (i.e. Euroclass A1 Reaction to Fire classification).
A glass mineral wool roll or slab provides both a thermal and an acoustic insulation solution for this sensitive area of a building while also satisfying the non-combustibility criteria.
