Rockwool price increase?
      #604641 - 16/04/08 12:43 PM
I'm about to build some bass traps having read every thread I can find. It seems that the 60kg per cubic metre is a decent option to go for.

I've just rang my local Travis Perkins for a quote on RW3 1000x600x100mm slabs.

The quote was £60.98 for a pack of 4 + delivery from Rockwool since it's not held in any of the local stores even though I live within Greater Manchester.

I remember seeing a thread from last year where the price was around £22 inc VAT for a pack of 4.

Has it really increased that much or did I ask for the wrong stuff?

i picked some up from my local TP a few months ago @ approx £30 for 6 slabs 1200x600x100.

Unless your getting charged a load for delivery I cant see why you should pay so much.

Steve Hill posted a site in another thread that will deliver stuff to you and that worked out about £7 per slab + vat & delivery.

Thanks. That's confirmed my original thoughts, in that it was expensive. Not even sure that included VAT, it definitely didn't include delivery.

That'd be this thread. Thanks for the reminder about that one. I'd overlooked it because it was mainly talking about 45kg/m3.

and this product: Acoustic Mineral Wool
