1. Knauf Insulation adds advice on noise reduction Knauf Insulation has launched new guidance and a product finder tool to help merchants and distributors give their customers sound advice on insulation and noise reduction. The Noise Reduction Insulation Product Finder uses details of a project’s location and build-up to advise whether the building regulations stipulate a noise reduction level, and the most appropriate product to use in that application. Merchants and distributors can use it to help them make the correct product recommendation or can refer installers and contractors to it directly.


The tool covers roof, wall and floor applications for both new build and refurbishment projects. In addition to the launch of the tool, Knauf Insulation has produced a leaflet: Noise Reducing Insulation – What you need to know, which gives an overview of the key facts about using insulation to reduce noise. 2.
