Johns Manville, a Berkshire Hathaway company, is a leading manufacturer and marketer of premium-quality building insulation, commercial roofing, roof insulation, and specialty products for commercial, industrial, and residential applications.
Description of primary products and services:
Johns Manville product offerings include formaldehyde-free™ fiber glass building insulation, commercial roofing membranes and roof insulations, filtration media, mats, and reinforcements.
Today we know that the physical structure of a health care facility plays a key role in creating a healing environment for patients and a comfortable and productive workplace for staff. Once a building is occupied, its roofing and insulation systems are largely out of sight and out of mind. Yet they can have a significant impact on crucial aspects of your facility's environment-air quality, thermal comfort, moisture control, acoustics, infection control and operating cost. With so much at stake, your choices in building materials are critical.
Johns Manville offers a portfolio of building solutions designed for the unique needs of the health care setting. Our products and services can help you design workplaces that provide better acoustic comfort, moisture control and air quality.
They can also help you meet sustainability goals and enhance overall project excellence. As an expert consultant in the design of new and renovated health care facilities, Johns Manville can help you ensure tangible and intangible returns over the lifetime of your facility.
