    Where to purchase rockwool isulation?

    Sign in to disable this ad
    I'm in the process of building a wall seperating my control room from my live/drum room. I'm planning on using 4" rockwool as insulation... where can I buy this? I went to a hardware store today and I couldn't find it.

    Also, my ceiling and floor are concrete, and I was planning to use some type of foam rubber between the plates and the concrete... any recommendations for this material as well?

    An industrial insulation wholesaler

    Rock Wool Manufacturing Company
    Leeds, Alabama

    Maybe do a search for Delta-10 Board to find a supplier close to you.

    I found the site and the info. I'll call them on Monday. Does anyone know the quantities in which this must be purchased?

    Please confirm that this what I want. I called Rock Wool Manufacturing and I found 3 local dealers. I called them all and 2 of them stock Delta SA-FIRE BOARD Sound Attenuation Insulation. I got all the info I needed, so I'm just checking to make sure this is the correct insulation to use. Here's a link to the site, just click the SA-FIRE BORAD link on the left:

    Are you trying to isolate, or is this for sound treatment purposes? The board you mention is 3# per cubic foot. If I understand correctly, the higher the density, the better bass absorbtion. My ceiling and rear wall are lined with 10# per cubic foot 2'x4'x2" slabs and does a good job on bass as well as other frequencies. However if you're trying to block sound transmission, then follow John Sayer's recommendations, like resilient channel, steel studs, staggered studs,etc, etc.

    Let me explain a bit more what I am doing. I'm in the process of building a wall that will seperate my control room from my drum room. My main purpose is to block/isolate and stop sound transmission from the drum room to my control room (vice versa). So I'm using a staggered stud wall frame. I'm trying to figure out which insulation to use in the wall. From what I've read, I should use rockwool. And I don't know where to get it. I called Rock Wool Manufactoring and searched their website and found the stuff I listed in my previous post. I called my local dealers and got quotes and quantities. So should I be using this, or is their better insulation to stop sound.

    I hope this sheds more light into what I'm trying to accomplish.

    Flatrock - I play bass and am concerned about low freq sound isolation/transmission. I live 30 min away from you (Smyrna) and was wondering where you got the 10# rockwool.

    I've been thinking about a blown-in cellulose, but now I'm wondering if rockwool would be better. I've got another thread going in this forum listed as New Home Studio.

    2" thickness by 2' width by 4' length is 23 cents per square foot and there are 48 square feet per bundle. 0.23X48=$11.04 per bundle.

    3" thickness by 2' width by 4' length is 30 cents per square foot and there are 32 square feet per bundle. 0.30X32=$9.60 per bundle.

    For my staggered stud wall (8'x9'x12'), with a 36" door, it's gonna cost me appx. $50 to insulate. I think I need about 105 square feet of insulation, but I'm going to recalculate it just to make sure before I actually buy the rockwool.
