Fungsi, Keunggulan, dan Kekurangan Rockwool

Fungsi Rockwool

Fungsi umum dari rockwool adalah untuk dapat memberikan isolasi di rumah tinggal atau bangunan komersial. Rockwool juga akan dapat melindungi pipa, kapal, rumah mobile dan peralatan memasak domestik. Meskipun paling umum dikenal untuk dapat menyediakan isolasi di rumah, orang juga akan menggunakan rockwool dan glasswool sebagai media tumbuh hortikultura.

Keunggulan Rockwool

Rockwool juga menyediakan berbagai keuntungan, termasuk tahan api dan serap suara. Karena serat yang tidak mudah terbakar dan telah memiliki titik leleh yang ekstrim lebih dari 2.150 derajat F, isolasi wol batuan bertindak sebagai penghalang api. Karakteristik tahan apinya menunda penyebaran api, yang bisa menambahkan menit berharga untuk dapat melarikan diri saat kebakaran. Batu isolasi wol juga menolak air, anti membusuk dan jamur, termasuk berbagai jenis pertumbuhan bakteri. Karena menolak air, rockwool tidak akan melemah atau kendur. Isi dari rockwool padat, sehingga dapat mengurangi aliran udara dan transmisi gelombang suara.

Keuntungan rockwool :

    Cocok untuk aneka kebutuhan industri
    Memiliki daya konduksi termal yang rendah
    Dapat digunakan pada suhu 100° C sampai 820° C
    Tidak mudah terbakar
    Kedap suara
    Tidak berkarat / berjamur

Aplikasi produk :

    Peredam ruangan genset
    Peredam ruangan studio
    Peredam ruangan diskotik
    Partisi ruangan

Tersedia dalam bentuk : Lembaran, Roll, Batang
Kekurangan rockwool :

Masalah kecil mungkin timbul ketika dalam melaksanakan isolasi/insulation. Ketika dalam menangani rockwool, hindari menyentuh langsung dengan tangan kosong. Meskipun tidak menimbulkan bahaya langsung, dapat menyebabkan gatal-gatal sementara dan ketidaknyamanan.

Juga, debu dapat bertebaran ketika memasang rockwool, sehingga harus memakai masker pelindung dan pelindung mata yang sesuai untuk dapat menghindari kecelakaan atau cedera, dan agar dapat bernafas dengan benar.

FUNGSI , KEUNGGULAN , DAN KEKURANGAN ROCKWOOL

saco-indonesia.com, Buntut dari tewasnya Ade Sudrajat yang berusia 16 tahun , saat terjadi tawuran antara SMK YKTB dengan SMK Wiyata Karisma Rabu (12/2) kemarin, akhirnya polisi telah menetapkan tiga pelajar jadi tersangka.

Kasat Reskrim Polres Bogor, AKP Didik Purwanto juga mengaku, tiga pelajar yang telah ditetapkan sebagai tersangka adalah RD 16, YP 16, dan FB 15.

“Ketiga pelajar ini juga merupakan siswa SMK Menara Siswa dan YKTB. Sedangkan Riki, pelaku pembacokan masih buron,”kata AKP Didik.

Menurut AKP Didik, tawuran bermula saat sekelompok siswa SMK Menara Siswa (Mensis) sedang nongkrong di Gapura perumahan Telaga Kahuripan dekat pangkalan ojek.

Tiba-tiba mereka diserang sekitar 30 orang pelajar gabungan dari SMK Wiyata Karisma dan SMK YKTB Kota Bogor.

Kelompok dari dua sekolah berbeda yang telah menyatu dalam satu kelompok ini, mempersenjatai diri dengan clurit.

“Deden siswa SMK YKTB 1 Yasmin dan Ridho siswa SMK YKTB jalan Semeru yang telah menjadi ketua kelompok penyerangan. Keduanya memegang senjata tajam,”kata Didik.

Kedua sekolah ini, diakui Kasat, telah memiliki dendam lama dengan sekolah korban.

“Pengakuan FB, satu pelajar yang kini jadi tersangka, yang membacok korban hingga clurit masih menempel dibadan saat ditemukan, adalah Riki. Pelaku sudah DO. Dia yang menggerakan aksi,”paparnya.

Korban ditikam saat terjatuh karena berlari mundur ketika menghindari serangan balik lawan.

“Ketiga pelaku dijerat Pasal 170 KUHP tentang pengeroyokan. Tiga pelaku lainnya yang masih dalam pengejaran adalah Agung, Bastiar dan Riki,” ujar Didik Purwanto.

Diberitakan sebelumnya, tawuran antar pelajar SMK di Bogor, menelan satu korban jiwa.

Ade Sudrajat yang berusia (16) tahun , siswa kelas 1 SMK Wiyata Kharisma, tewas di lokasi akibat terkena sabetan clurit di kepalanya. Warga Kampung Tegal RT 1/03 Kecamatan Kemang, Kabupaten Bogor ini, tewas dengan 3 luka sabetan clurit di bagian kepala, pinggang dan punggungnya.

TIGA PELAJAR DI BOGOR JADI TERSANGKA

saco-indonesia.com, Windows 9 adalah sistem operasi yang seharusnya telah membawa beberapa perbaikan visual utama untuk platform modern Microsoft, termasuk desktop yang telah disempurnakan. Sehingga akan membuat perubahan yang mungkin dari segi kecepatan daripada sistem operasi untuk PC tradisional.

Salah seorang desainer yang bernama Markus McNugen baru-baru ini telah membuat konsep Windows 9 yang mana OS Microsoft ini tampil dengan gaya yang lebih sederhana, namun tetap menarik.

KOnsep yang telah diusung sepertinya memang dibuat sesederhana mungkin, sehingga telah di setting default akan benar-benar 'bersih' banyaknya aplikasi yang muncul. Apa pendapat Anda dengan konsep yang sangat simple ini?

Sejauh ini Windows 9 telah dikabarkan bakal akan dirilis pada tahun 2015 mendatang. Sebelumnya juga sempat muncul rumor bahwa Microsoft lebih memilih langsung memproduksi Windows 10 dan melewatkan Windows 9. Windows 9 hanya cukup versi beta saja.

Namun seiring berjalannya waktu, rumor tersebut telah hilang dan tak pernah lagi terdengar. Sebab gembar-gembor kemunculan Windows 9 justru lebih kencang. Lantas, apa pendapat Anda? Setujukah Anda dengan konsep sederhana pada Windows 9 bikinan Markus McNugen ini?

WINDOWS 9 TAMPIL LEBIH BERSIH DAN SANGAT SIMPLE

Bulan lalu saya mengirim netbook Acer Aspire One ke biak papua melalui jasa pengiriman PCP dengan ongkos kirim yang menurut saya cukup mahal. Beratnya tidak sampai 3kg, tapi ongkos kirimnya 300ribu lebih. Nah, seminggu yang lalu saya kembali kirim barang ke makassar dengan berat 24kg. Nah, kebayang nggak berapa ongkos kirim-nya kalau lewat jasa pengiriman seperti JNE atau TIKI ? Saya coba cek pake fasilitas check tarif di situs JNE, dan hasilnya 720 ribu (Yogyakarta – Makassar).mahal sekali ! Hampir setengah dari harga barang yang dikirim (kipas untuk souvenir pernikahan), yaitu 1,5 juta rupiah.

Bagi saya ongkos kirim segitu terlalu mahal untuk sebuah barang yang nilai harganya hanya 1,5 rupiah. Saya pun telah mencoba mencari info jasa kirim barang yang lebih murah. Setelah tanya sana-sini, akhirnya ada seorang teman yang memberi tahu "kalau mau kirim barang dengan ongkos kirim murah, kirim langsung lewat bandara aja, tapi nanti penerimanya harus ngambil sendiri di bandara loh...", katanya.

Setelah dapat info tersebut, tanpa banyak tanya lagi, saya langsung hubungi adik saya di makassar, untuk dapat memastikan bisa atau tidak ke bandara untuk mengambil barang yang akan saya kirim nanti. Karena adik saya bilang “bisa”, saya pun langsung meluncur ke bandara Adisutjipto Yogyakarta untuk dapat mencari tahu kebenaran info teman saya tersebut, sekaligus mencari tahu kira-kira berapa ongkos kirim-nya.

Sesampai di Bandara, saya coba tanya tukang parkir yang ada disitu “dimana tempat kirim barang”. Tukang parkirnya langsung menunjuk ke salah-satu bangunan yang persis ada di samping area parkiran motor. “Wah, ternyata tidak sulit untuk mencari tempat kirim barangnya” kata saya dalam hati. Habis parkir motor, sayang langsung berjalan menuju gedung yang ditunjuk si tukang parkir tadi. Dari kejauhan sudah keliatan kalau bangunan tersebut sepertinya memang tempat khusus untuk pengambilan dan kirim barang.

Ternyata benar, gedung tersebut memang tempat pengambilan dan kirim barang. Saya lihat disitu juga ada mobil-mobil dari jasa pengiriman seperti TIKI, JNE, dan PCP. Karena sudah yakin kalau ini benar2 tempat kirim barang, saya kemudian mulai tanya-tanya, mulai dari ongkos kirim, berapa lama barang sampai, dan cara pengambilan barang di kota tujuan.

Benar saja, kirim barang langsung melalui bandara, ongkos kirimnya memang lebih murah, bahkan boleh dibilang jauh lebih murah dibanding kalau melalui jasa pengiriman yang diantar langsung ke alamat tujuan. Bayangkan, kalau saya krim melalui JNE ongkos kirimnya sekitar 720 ribu, tapi waktu saya kirim langsung lewat bandara hanya 314 ribu. Aslinya 240ribu (10ribu/kg) tapi ditambah biaya packing, adminitrasi, pajak dan lain-lain, jadi totalnya 314ribu. Ini ongkos kirim dari jogja ke makassar loh yaa.. kalau ke daerah lain saya kurang tahu, karena setiap daerah beda-beda.

Satu lagi keunggulan kalau kirim barang langsung lewat bandara, yaitu barang lebih cepat sampai. Tapi disarankan, kalau barang sudah sampai, secepatnya diambil, karena kalau kelamaan nanti kena biaya penyimpanan gudang. Orang yang boleh ngambil tidak harus orang yang namanya tercatat di penerima, bisa siapa saja, yang penting membawa atau menunjukkan nomor pengiriman yang didapat saat melakukan pengiriman.

Satu yang lupa saya tanyakan, yaitu: barang-barang  yang beratnya cuma satu atau dua kilogram atau yang tidak sampai satu kilogram, kira-kira diterima juga gak, ya? Soalnya yang saya liat disitu barang-barang berat semua.

MENGIRIM BARANG LANGSUNG LEWAT BANDARA

Late in April, after Native American actors walked off in disgust from the set of Adam Sandler’s latest film, a western sendup that its distributor, Netflix, has defended as being equally offensive to all, a glow of pride spread through several Native American communities.

Tantoo Cardinal, a Canadian indigenous actress who played Black Shawl in “Dances With Wolves,” recalled thinking to herself, “It’s come.” Larry Sellers, who starred as Cloud Dancing in the 1990s television show “Dr. Quinn, Medicine Woman,” thought, “It’s about time.” Jesse Wente, who is Ojibwe and directs film programming at the TIFF Bell Lightbox in Toronto, found himself encouraged and surprised. There are so few film roles for indigenous actors, he said, that walking off the set of a major production showed real mettle.

But what didn’t surprise Mr. Wente was the content of the script. According to the actors who walked off the set, the film, titled “The Ridiculous Six,” included a Native American woman who passes out and is revived after white men douse her with alcohol, and another woman squatting to urinate while lighting a peace pipe. “There’s enough history at this point to have set some expectations around these sort of Hollywood depictions,” Mr. Wente said.

The walkout prompted a rhetorical “What do you expect from an Adam Sandler film?,” and a Netflix spokesman said that in the movie, blacks, Mexicans and whites were lampooned as well. But Native American actors and critics said a broader issue was at stake. While mainstream portrayals of native peoples have, Mr. Wente said, become “incrementally better” over the decades, he and others say, they remain far from accurate and reflect a lack of opportunities for Native American performers. What’s more, as Native Americans hunger for representation on screen, critics say the absence of three-dimensional portrayals has very real off-screen consequences.

“Our people are still healing from historical trauma,” said Loren Anthony, one of the actors who walked out. “Our youth are still trying to figure out who they are, where they fit in this society. Kids are killing themselves. They’re not proud of who they are.” They also don’t, he added, see themselves on prime time television or the big screen. Netflix noted while about five people walked off the “The Ridiculous Six” set, 100 or so Native American actors and extras stayed.

But in interviews, nearly a dozen Native American actors and film industry experts said that Mr. Sandler’s humor perpetuated decades-old negative stereotypes. Mr. Anthony said such depictions helped feed the despondency many Native Americans feel, with deadly results: Native Americans have the highest suicide rate out of all the country’s ethnicities.

The on-screen problem is twofold, Mr. Anthony and others said: There’s a paucity of roles for Native Americans — according to the Screen Actors Guild in 2008 they accounted for 0.3 percent of all on-screen parts (those figures have yet to be updated), compared to about 2 percent of the general population — and Native American actors are often perceived in a narrow way.

In his Peabody Award-winning documentary “Reel Injun,” the Cree filmmaker Neil Diamond explored Hollywood depictions of Native Americans over the years, and found they fell into a few stereotypical categories: the Noble Savage, the Drunk Indian, the Mystic, the Indian Princess, the backward tribal people futilely fighting John Wayne and manifest destiny. While the 1990 film “Dances With Wolves” won praise for depicting Native Americans as fully fleshed out human beings, not all indigenous people embraced it. It was still told, critics said, from the colonialists’ point of view. In an interview, John Trudell, a Santee Sioux writer, actor (“Thunderheart”) and the former chairman of the American Indian Movement, described the film as “a story of two white people.”

“God bless ‘Dances with Wolves,’ ” Michael Horse, who played Deputy Hawk in “Twin Peaks,” said sarcastically. “Even ‘Avatar.’ Someone’s got to come save the tribal people.”

Dan Spilo, a partner at Industry Entertainment who represents Adam Beach, one of today’s most prominent Native American actors, said while typecasting dogs many minorities, it is especially intractable when it comes to Native Americans. Casting directors, he said, rarely cast them as police officers, doctors or lawyers. “There’s the belief that the Native American character should be on reservations or riding a horse,” he said.

“We don’t see ourselves,” Mr. Horse said. “We’re still an antiquated culture to them, and to the rest of the world.”

Ms. Cardinal said she was once turned down for the role of the wife of a child-abusing cop because the filmmakers felt that casting her would somehow be “too political.”

Another sore point is the long run of white actors playing American Indians, among them Burt Lancaster, Rock Hudson, Audrey Hepburn and, more recently, Johnny Depp, whose depiction of Tonto in the 2013 film “Lone Ranger,” was viewed as racist by detractors. There are, of course, exceptions. The former A&E series “Longmire,” which, as it happens, will now be on Netflix, was roundly praised for its depiction of life on a Northern Cheyenne reservation, with Lou Diamond Phillips, who is of Cherokee descent, playing a Northern Cheyenne man.

Others also point to the success of Mr. Beach, who played a Mohawk detective in “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit” and landed a starring role in the forthcoming D C Comics picture “Suicide Squad.” Mr. Beach said he had come across insulting scripts backed by people who don’t see anything wrong with them.

“I’d rather starve than do something that is offensive to my ancestral roots,” Mr. Beach said. “But I think there will always be attempts to drawn on the weakness of native people’s struggles. The savage Indian will always be the savage Indian. The white man will always be smarter and more cunning. The cavalry will always win.”

The solution, Mr. Wente, Mr. Trudell and others said, lies in getting more stories written by and starring Native Americans. But Mr. Wente noted that while independent indigenous film has blossomed in the last two decades, mainstream depictions have yet to catch up. “You have to stop expecting for Hollywood to correct it, because there seems to be no ability or desire to correct it,” Mr. Wente said.

There have been calls to boycott Netflix but, writing for Indian Country Today Media Network, which first broke news of the walk off, the filmmaker Brian Young noted that the distributor also offered a number of films by or about Native Americans.

The furor around “The Ridiculous Six” may drive more people to see it. Then one of the questions that Mr. Trudell, echoing others, had about the film will be answered: “Who the hell laughs at this stuff?”

BALTIMORE — In the afternoons, the streets of Locust Point are clean and nearly silent. In front of the rowhouses, potted plants rest next to steps of brick or concrete. There is a shopping center nearby with restaurants, and a grocery store filled with fresh foods.

And the National Guard and the police are largely absent. So, too, residents say, are worries about what happened a few miles away on April 27 when, in a space of hours, parts of this city became riot zones.

“They’re not our reality,” Ashley Fowler, 30, said on Monday at the restaurant where she works. “They’re not what we’re living right now. We live in, not to be racist, white America.”

As Baltimore considers its way forward after the violent unrest brought by the death of Freddie Gray, a 25-year-old black man who died of injuries he suffered while in police custody, residents in its predominantly white neighborhoods acknowledge that they are sometimes struggling to understand what beyond Mr. Gray’s death spurred the turmoil here. For many, the poverty and troubled schools of gritty West Baltimore are distant troubles, glimpsed only when they pass through the area on their way somewhere else.

And so neighborhoods of Baltimore are facing altogether different reckonings after Mr. Gray’s death. In mostly black communities like Sandtown-Winchester, where some of the most destructive rioting played out last week, residents are hoping businesses will reopen and that the police will change their strategies. But in mostly white areas like Canton and Locust Point, some residents wonder what role, if any, they should play in reimagining stretches of Baltimore where they do not live.

“Most of the people are kind of at a loss as to what they’re supposed to do,” said Dr. Richard Lamb, a dentist who has practiced in the same Locust Point office for nearly 39 years. “I listen to the news reports. I listen to the clergymen. I listen to the facts of the rampant unemployment and the lack of opportunities in the area. Listen, I pay my taxes. Exactly what can I do?”

And in Canton, where the restaurants have clever names like Nacho Mama’s and Holy Crepe Bakery and Café, Sara Bahr said solutions seemed out of reach for a proudly liberal city.

“I can only imagine how frustrated they must be,” said Ms. Bahr, 36, a nurse who was out with her 3-year-old daughter, Sally. “I just wish I knew how to solve poverty. I don’t know what to do to make it better.”

The day of unrest and the overwhelmingly peaceful demonstrations that followed led to hundreds of arrests, often for violations of the curfew imposed on the city for five consecutive nights while National Guard soldiers patrolled the streets. Although there were isolated instances of trouble in Canton, the neighborhood association said on its website, many parts of southeast Baltimore were physically untouched by the tumult.

Tensions in the city bubbled anew on Monday after reports that the police had wounded a black man in Northwest Baltimore. The authorities denied those reports and sent officers to talk with the crowds that gathered while other officers clutching shields blocked traffic at Pennsylvania and West North Avenues.

Lt. Col. Melvin Russell, a community police officer, said officers had stopped a man suspected of carrying a handgun and that “one of those rounds was spent.”

Colonel Russell said officers had not opened fire, “so we couldn’t have shot him.”

The colonel said the man had not been injured but was taken to a hospital as a precaution. Nearby, many people stood in disbelief, despite the efforts by the authorities to quash reports they described as “unfounded.”

Monday’s episode was a brief moment in a larger drama that has yielded anger and confusion. Although many people said they were familiar with accounts of the police harassing or intimidating residents, many in Canton and Locust Point said they had never experienced it themselves. When they watched the unrest, which many protesters said was fueled by feelings that they lived only on Baltimore’s margins, even those like Ms. Bahr who were pained by what they saw said they could scarcely comprehend the emotions associated with it.

But others, like Lambi Vasilakopoulos, who runs a casual restaurant in Canton, said they were incensed by what unfolded last week.

“What happened wasn’t called for. Protests are one thing; looting is another thing,” he said, adding, “We’re very frustrated because we’re the ones who are going to pay for this.”

There were pockets of optimism, though, that Baltimore would enter a period of reconciliation.

“I’m just hoping for peace,” Natalie Boies, 53, said in front of the Locust Point home where she has lived for 50 years. “Learn to love each other; be patient with each other; find justice; and care.”

A skeptical Mr. Vasilakopoulos predicted tensions would worsen.

“It cannot be fixed,” he said. “It’s going to get worse. Why? Because people don’t obey the laws. They don’t want to obey them.”

But there were few fears that the violence that plagued West Baltimore last week would play out on these relaxed streets. The authorities, Ms. Fowler said, would make sure of that.

“They kept us safe here,” she said. “I didn’t feel uncomfortable when I was in my house three blocks away from here. I knew I was going to be O.K. because I knew they weren’t going to let anyone come and loot our properties or our businesses or burn our cars.”

Public perceptions of race relations in America have grown substantially more negative in the aftermath of the death of a young black man who was injured while in police custody in Baltimore and the subsequent unrest, far eclipsing the sentiment recorded in the wake of turmoil in Ferguson, Mo., last summer.

Americans are also increasingly likely to say that the police are more apt to use deadly force against a black person, the latest New York Times/CBS News poll finds.

The poll findings highlight the challenges for local leaders and police officials in trying to maintain order while sustaining faith in the criminal justice system in a racially polarized nation.

Sixty-one percent of Americans now say race relations in this country are generally bad. That figure is up sharply from 44 percent after the fatal police shooting of Michael Brown and the unrest that followed in Ferguson in August, and 43 percent in December. In a CBS News poll just two months ago, 38 percent said race relations were generally bad. Current views are by far the worst of Barack Obama’s presidency.

The negative sentiment is echoed by broad majorities of blacks and whites alike, a stark change from earlier this year, when 58 percent of blacks thought race relations were bad, but just 35 percent of whites agreed. In August, 48 percent of blacks and 41 percent of whites said they felt that way.

Looking ahead, 44 percent of Americans think race relations are worsening, up from 36 percent in December. Forty-one percent of blacks and 46 percent of whites think so. Pessimism among whites has increased 10 points since December.

The poll finds that profound racial divisions in views of how the police use deadly force remain. Blacks are more than twice as likely to say police in most communities are more apt to use deadly force against a black person — 79 percent of blacks say so compared with 37 percent of whites. A slim majority of whites say race is not a factor in a police officer’s decision to use deadly force.

Overall, 44 percent of Americans say deadly force is more likely to be used against a black person, up from 37 percent in August and 40 percent in December.

Blacks also remain far more likely than whites to say they feel mostly anxious about the police in their community. Forty-two percent say so, while 51 percent feel mostly safe. Among whites, 8 in 10 feel mostly safe.

One proposal to address the matter — having on-duty police officers wear body cameras — receives overwhelming support. More than 9 in 10 whites and blacks alike favor it.

Asked specifically about the situation in Baltimore, most Americans expressed at least some confidence that the investigation by local authorities would be conducted fairly. But while nearly two-thirds of whites think so, fewer than half of blacks agree. Still, more blacks are confident now than were in August regarding the investigation in Ferguson. On Friday, six members of the police force involved in the arrest of Mr. Gray were charged with serious offenses, including manslaughter. The poll was conducted Thursday through Sunday; results from before charges were announced are similar to those from after.

Reaction to the recent turmoil in Baltimore, however, is similar among blacks and whites. Most Americans, 61 percent, say the unrest after Mr. Gray’s death was not justified. That includes 64 percent of whites and 57 percent of blacks.
