Set sail for lighter weight and fire safety! Paroc launches new 40% lighter Marine solutions

A significant development in production technology allows Paroc to bring lighter weight to the existing, internationally recognised marine offering. Among the first solutions to receive Light Marine treatment are PAROC slabs for A-class steel decks and bulkheads.

Easy Design

The new solutions are based on only one product: 60 kg/m3 stone wool slab PAROC Marine Navis Slab 60 in four thicknesses, which makes the design easy and less complex. The 40% weight reduction allows shipbuilders and ship-owners to benefit substantially from lower fuel consumption; additionally, ships become more manoeuvrable. The new PAROC products are also good for our environment: CO2-emissions will be reduced starting with the transport of the products from the factory until being installed in the shipyard and sailing on the water.

The solutions for A-class fire protection are:

PAROC Marine
Navis Slab 60
Steel Deck
Steel Bulkhead

50 / 30 70 / 30 30 / 30 40 / 30
Weight (kg/m2) 3,0 / 1,8 4,2 / 1,8 1,8 / 1,8 2,4 / 1,8

The determination of non-combustibility in accordance with IMO FTP Code Part 1 has been performed for all PAROC Marine insulations.

The first PAROC Light Marine solutions are introduced in October 2017. These solutions are only the beginning of a new lightweight product range.

Paroc is one of Europe’s leading manufacturers of energy-efficient insulation solutions for new and renovated buildings, marine and offshore, acoustics and other industrial applications. Throughout its over 75-year history, the Finnish supplier has built a reputation for innovation, product performance, technical expertise and sustainability.
