Isover provides a range of high-performing insulation solutions that are used to insulate countless homes, buildings, and transportation applications all over the UK. Thousands of professionals choose Isover to provide great performing insulation while being energy efficient.
Isover aims to create a balanced thermal environment by using insulation to create an airtight envelope around the building, together with mechanical or natural ventilation which will help control the indoor thermal environment. Providing the correct insulation in your residential or commercial building can save up to 30% on your yearly heating or cooling bill.

Isover uses Mineral wool to produce several insulation products. Mineral Wool is a material that traps in the air, making it one of the most effective insulation materials and is used by builders all over the UK. The porous and elastic composition of the wool can also absorb noise adding an acoustic advantage to the building. Mineral wool is a hard-wearing material and does not fuel fire or generate flames. Their products are used to form rolls, slabs, pipe selections, and loose wool.
Isover produces 3 types of mineral wool:
- Glass wool, made mainly from sand and recycled glass.
- Stone wool, made mainly from volcanic rock.
- Mineral Wool / Ultimate Mineral Wool, mainly made from either fibre of stone and slag wool or slag and stone.
