Tests show that the glass mineral wool of URSA is a highly sustainable product due to its composition, mainly sand, recycled glass and a water- based binder system that only releases water vapor in production. During its use phase, a functional unit of glass mineral wool product of URSA can save (depending on the final application) between 200 and 600 times the energy needed for its production, transportation and installation and at end-of-life , it is fully recyclable. An independent panel of experts assessed the presented URSA material. The products are tested with a long series of tests to establish how environmentally friendly the products are. For this URSA received this “Zielona Marka” (“Green Brand”) innovation award in Poland.

  The URSA AIR range, which offers energy efficient and acoustically performing air conditioning ducts made of glass mineral wool, has been named an “installer-friendly product” by the well-known magazine “Professional Installer” in Poland.
