The new environment helps specifiers construct comfortable, safe spaces for patients
Specifying insulation for healthcare environments is now easier thanks to a new healthcare hub from ROCKWOOL. The ROCKWOOL healthcare hub 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. Intuitively designed using cutting-edge augmented reality, the environment makes designing and selecting insulation solutions quick and easy, while keeping patient health and wellbeing at the fore. Through features like zoom, 360º views and pan-able application build-ups, users can explore the ROCKWOOL insulation range across a wide range of facades and applications within public health settings when it’s not possible to touch, see or hear products in practice.
Each 3D application includes product documentation, installation guides and BIM objects that 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. “That’s why we’ve created a dedicated area for specifiers to learn more about how our products can help thermal, acoustic and fire performance within these multi-faceted projects.
“We’ll be expanding our sector specific resources throughout 2021, providing tailored information that’s robust, up-to-date and critically, outcome-focused.”
