MCRMA issues new insulation installation guidance

The Metal Cladding and Roofing Manufacturers Association (MCRMA) has produced a new guidance document: GD28 Mineral wool insulation installation: best practice guide.

The document offers good practice guidance in the storage, handling and installation of mineral wool insulation in built-up metal roof and wall cladding systems.

All buildings whatever their use must provide protection from the external environment and the requirements of the internal environment will depend upon the intended use of the building. The MCRMA says insulating a building is one of the most cost-effective ways of saving energy and reducing heating and cooling bills.

The aim of the guidance is to promote good practice across the industry, leading to improvements in building envelope performance, efficiency and health and safety.

The guide can be downloaded from the MCRMA website at
