ROXUL® solutions are where design meets performance... as part of yet another large-scale high-profile commercial project in North America. ROXUL solution CurtainRock® is now part of the newly completed 53-storey Ritz-Carlton Residence Tower - located on the edge of Toronto's entertainment district.

CurtainRock® is a stone wool semi-rigid insulation board, specifically designed for use in curtain wall applications. The product can be fabricated with a reinforced foil facing and used as a component of UL approved backpan, shadow box and mechanically fastened systems.

Made from basalt rock and steel slag, the product is naturally fire resistant and ideal for fire-rated curtain wall applications. The Curtain Wall family of products - CurtainRock®, CurtainRock® 40 and CurtainRock® 80 all meet the ASTM E136 & CAN4 S114 approvals for non-combustibility as well as ASTM E84 (UL 723) and CAN/ULC S102 contributing zero flame and zero smoke development. CurtainRock® 40 and CurtainRock® 80 also comply with ASTM E2307/E119 - Perimeter Fire Barrier Systems and are New York City MEA approved.

All ROXUL products deliver fire-resistance, water resistance and long-term stable R-values, helping to ensure optimum building performance. CurtainRock® also contributes to LEED® points for sustainable development.

Ritz-Carlton Residence
The Ritz-Carlton Toronto is located on the western edge of the downtown core bordering Toronto's entertainment district. The new tower is complete and opened on February 16, 2011.
