How to handle mineral wool sandwich panels

Mineral wool, also called rock wool or glass wool, is a natural material frequently used in building insulation processes. Its biocompatible characteristics and fibrous nature make mineral wool a highly insulating material from a thermal and acoustic point of view. For these reasons, rock wool sandwich panels are increasingly in demand in building coating.

 

Moving mineral wool sandwich panels with vacuum lifters

Today, lifting insulated panels using vacuum lifters is gaining popularity. This is because employing a vacuum lifter is efficient and easy, as it makes the installation of insulated panels faster, easier and safer.

However, many installers who need to install glass wool insulation panels still have many concerns about the effectiveness and safety of using vacuum lifters to move mineral wool panels. They fear that the panels may be damaged, that the coating sheet may peel off, or that the suction pads will not hold the load.
