INSULATION SYSTEMS FOR COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS PAGE 5 ECOTOUCH FLAME SPREAD 25/FLAME SPREAD 25 EXTENDED FLANGES FIBERGLASS INSULATION-PRODUCT DATA DESCRIPTION & USES FSK-Faced (Foil) PSK-Faced (White) Install between metal or wood framing or attach with impaling pins. Light-density, flexible batt insulation with low flame spread FSK or PSK facing, and R-values * from 11 to 30. For walls, ceilings and floors where a low flame spread vapor retarder is required or where insulation will be exposed. Also suited for concealed applications in noncombustible constructions. FEATURES & BENEFITS Meets thermal specifications. Meets building code requirements for exposed applications thereby eliminating the need for a covering or separate finish. Improves acoustical performance. Easy to install and fabricate with 1" or 4" flanges for installation in framing applications. Widths accommodate metal and wood framing. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS In commercial roof/ceiling thermal applications, the building envelope must block the movement of air into the conditioned space. Do not rely on the insulation or its facing to provide an air barrier. Adding insulation inside a structure's perimeter exposes the exterior building materials to greater temperature extremes and expansion and contraction forces. Equip curtainwall buildings with sprinkler systems for fire protection as required by building codes. Luminaire performance may be affected by closely placed insulation. The National Electric Code requires: Unless fixtures are approved for such use, do not install insulation on top of or within 3" of recessed light fixtures. Evaluate the use of vapor retarders based on the unique requirements of each project. APPLICABLE STANDARDS ASTM C518 tests were used to determine R-values. * Listed R-values are for insulation only. Complies with ASTM C665, Type III, Class A when FSK-faced. Complies with the property requirement of ASTM C665, Type II, Class A when PSK-faced or Poly-faced. Surface burning characteristics tests performed in accordance with ASTM E84, a standard used solely to measure and describe properties of products in response to heat and flame under controlled laboratory conditions. Results are not intended to reflect hazards presented by this material under actual fire conditions. It also complies with the MEA 332-83-M requirements of New York City. Facing permeance tests conducted in accordance with ASTM E96 (desiccant method). * R-values differ. Find out why in the seller's fact sheet on R-values. Higher R-values mean greater insulating power.
