Where Can I Install Fiberglass and Mineral Wool Batt Insulation in My House?
Batts (also called blanket or “batt and roll” insulation) are sections of insulation material that can be affixed with adhesive to backing or facing. You’ll often see this kind of insulation in rolls, but it also comes in precut flat pieces.
Different kinds of insulating materials come in batt form, including fiberglass, which is made of very fine glass fibers, and mineral wool, also called rock wool, which is made from rock or slag fibers.
Fiberglass and mineral wool insulation are usually fitted and installed between the framing studs or ceiling or floor joists in your home. Whether you’re looking to insulate your basement foundation or interior or exterior walls, batt insulation can be used in a variety of areas to insulate and protect:
Mineral Wool Insulation for Quiet and Peace of Mind
Mineral wool, in part because of its density, has superior sound deadening qualities. If you’re looking to make your home quieter and reduce the amount of ambient noise coming from not only outside your home but also from the different rooms throughout your house, using mineral wool for sound insulation is a great option.
