Fiberglass Batts

Product Description

If your house has a sub-floor above ground, we recommend it be insulated with one of 3 fiberglass products. By using either unfaced, kraft faced or encapsulated batts in your sub-floor you will improve the thermal and comfort performance of your home.

Performance Advantages

  • Improves indoor air quality – because it’s made without formaldehyde.
  • Poly-encapsulated – wrapped in plastic for cleaner, more comfortable installation with less itch and dust.
  • Thermally Efficient – provides effective resistance to heat transfer with R-values up to R-38 (RSI-6.7).
  • Acoustically Efficient – reduces transmission of sound through exterior and interior walls and floor/ceiling assemblies.
  • Fire-resistant and Noncombustible – (see Specification Compliance). ComfortTherm insulation can be left exposed where building codes permit.
  • Effective at Controlling Moisture – the plastic facing is a vapor retarder that resists water vapor transmission. ComfortTherm is also available with a plastic facing that does not act as a vapor retarder, for use in hot, humid climates.
  • Noncorrosive – does not accelerate corrosion of pipes, wiring or metal studs.
  • Mold-resistant – does not support mold or mildew. Does not supply a food source for insects or rodents.
  • Resilient – bonded glass fibers will not pull apart during normal applications and resist settling, breakdown and sagging from vibration.
  • Flexible – forms readily around corners and curved surfaces.
