Mineral wool is becoming well-known for its beneficial properties in thermal performance, energy efficiency, and sustainability. It is also widely used for fire protection as the raw ingredients are naturally fire-resistant. When combined with fire-rated assemblies, mineral wool insulation helps improve the fire performance of the building and enhances occupant safety.

This course will provide an overview of mineral wool insulation’s benefits, applicable fire performance building regulations, various occupant safety needs in different building occupancies, and discuss specific code-related applications where it can be used.
