ROCKWOOL launches healthcare hub


New environment helps specifiers construct comfortable, safe spaces for patients

Specifying insulation for healthcare environments is now easier with the launch of a new healthcare hub from ROCKWOOL.

The tool comprises a wealth of resources to support the use of non-combustible stone wool insulation for positive patient outcomes, while meeting the stringent cost and energy efficiency requirements of healthcare settings.

At the heart of the healthcare hub users will find ROCKWOOL for Healthcare Construction, a new comprehensive guide to designing and building with health in mind.

Providing a deep-dive into sector-specific building regulations and best practice, as well as case studies and future building methods; ROCKWOOL for Healthcare Construction has everything designers and specifiers need to create a safe, modern healthcare environment.

From the hub, users can also be immersed in the ROCKWOOL Interactive City virtual hospital which has been intuitively designed using cutting-edge augmented reality to make designing and selecting insulation solutions quick and easy, while keeping patient health and wellbeing at the fore.

Through features like zoom, 360º views, and panable application build-ups, users can explore ROCKWOOL products across a wide range of facades and applications within public health settings when it’s not possible to touch, see, or hear them in practice.

Each 3D application includes product documentation, installation guides, and BIM objects which can be downloaded for use offline or integrated into construction modelling software, giving users the all-important golden thread of construction data.

“Healthcare settings have unique challenges and requirements,” said Paul Barrett, head of product management at ROCKWOOL.
