Notes to editors:
URSA GLASSWOOL is a high-quality and cost-effective insulation material, produced with the most advanced technology. It offers a high level of heat insulation, coupled with outstanding sound insulation properties. Due to the inorganic nature of its raw materials (mainly sand), it shows an extraordinary resistance to fire. These characteristics make it an ideal material for thermal and sound insulation of construction applications such as pitched roofs, partitions, cavity walls and ceilings.
URSA GLASSWOOL ranks among the top insulation materials in terms of their respect and protection of the environment. The energy savings generated by URSA GLASSWOOL products in their end application far outweigh the energy required for their production and installation; therefore URSA GLASSWOOL presents a most positive energy and environmental balance.
