Batt Insulation – Fiberglass Attic Blow Insulation
Loose-fill attic insulation “R” values consist of the total value of both existing and/or newly installed fiberglass (Fiberglass Attic Blow Insulation). Since loose-fill may be installed over existing batt or blow, this is a convenient option for homeowners looking to increase their attic insulation values. Since joist depth is not a concern with blow, attic areas may be installed with an R-Value ranging from an R-19 to R-38 or greater. It is recommended that Florida residents install a minimum of R-30 in all ceiling areas, however, local codes may adjust this figure. NOTE: It is more economical to install Loose-fill, not batt insulation in all accessible attic areas. Thermal Batt Insulation maintains excellent thermal control, with R-values up to R-38 . Owens Corning batts also provide effective acoustical control for your home.
QuietZone® Acoustic Batts are acoustically engineered to absorb sound vibrations. They are installed between interior walls, floors, and ceilings constructed of standard wood framing members or QuietZone® Acoustic Wall Framing. QuietZone Acoustic Batts are lightweight, and pre-cut to 93″ lengths for quick installation and easy transportation. The batts are easily stapled and cleanly fabricated to allow for improved workmanship and acoustic performance.
QuietZone Acoustic Batts provide basic noise control to surrounding rooms. When using single 2×4 wood studs (16” o.c.) and 1/2” Type X gypsum board, QuietZone Acoustic Batts can improve conventional wood stud walls up to a Sound Transmission Class (STC) rating of 39. QuietZone Acoustic Batts can contribute to a reduction in noise levels up to STC 57 when used with the complete Owens Corning Noise Control System, including QuietZone Acoustic Wall Framing.*
