b. Manufactured in oversized widths to ensure a tight friction fit and fill capacity.
c. Maximum R-value performance.
d. Class-A Building material that meets or exceeds ASTM testing for both
commercial and residential batt insulation.
e. Patented proprietary process treats each individual fiber with a boron-based fire
retardant. This treatment not only acts as a superior fire retardant but also impedes
the growth of fungus, mold, and resists pests.
f. Patented manufacturing technology creates a three dimensional infrastructure that
traps, isolates and controls sound waves.
g. Extremely high Noise Reduction Coefficient to effectively reduce airborne sound
transmission including traffic, airplanes, radios, television, and conversation.
a. Contains no chemical irritants and requires no carcinogenic warning labels
compared to other traditional insulation products.
b. Contains no harmful airborne particulates eliminating health concerns regarding
particulates in the surrounding environment.
c. Contains an EPA registered fungal inhibitor to actively resist the growth of mold,
fungi and bacteria.
d. Passed Environmental Specification 1350 Indoor Air Pollutant testing used for
California Public Schools.
a. Consists almost entirely of natural denim and cotton fibers that are 100%
recyclable, reducing landfill waste.
b. Requires minimal amount of energy to manufacture aiding the environment with
energy conservation and reduction in pollution compared to other types of
