How to reduce dust when working with our products

The fibres in stone wool may cause temporary itching when it comes in contact with the skin. And although studies from the National Research Center for the Work Environment show that ROCKWOOL stone wool mats do not cause the limit values for airborne dust to be exceeded nor do they cause any health concerns, general dust prevention is important. 

Following the simple work practices below will help you use the products in the best possible way and at the same time minimise possible discomfort of the skin.
