KNAUF ECOBATT FIBERGLASS BUILDING INSULATION

DESCRIPTION:
Knauf EcoBatt Insulation are thermal and acoustical products made from highly resilient, inorganic glass fibers bonded by a thermosetting resin. The products are available unfaced or with kraft, foil, or flame-rated FSK-25 (Foil-Scrim-Kraft) foil facings.

APPLICATION:
Knauf EcoBatt Insulation are cost-effective thermal and acoustical barriers for energy-efficient construction. Their consistent quality, low dust, and clean-cutting resilient fibers make fabrication easy and installation fast. The products can be used in new and retrofit wood and metal frame applications in residential and commercial structures, as well as in manufactured housing applications. These applications include thermal and acoustical treatments to walls, ceilings, and floors.

 
In addition, High Density (HD) batts are available where optimal thermal performance is required and space for insulation is limited. High Density Cathedral Ceiling Batts, for example, deliver greater R-value in less space, so builders can increase R-values and still maintain adequate space for ventilation.
 
Knauf EcoBatt QuietTherm Insulation's excellent acoustical properties reduce sound transmission when properly installed in partition walls, ceilings, and floor assemblies.
 
Knauf EcoBatt Staple-Free Batts are flange-less kraft-faced batts which friction fit between wood studs eliminating the need to staple in place. These batts are designed for use in standard 2" x 4" wood framed construction where the stud spacing is no more than 16" on center.
