Flexible fiberglass insulation 3" to 12" thick available unfaced, foil-faced or kraft-faced. FEATURES & BENEFITS Sized for metal or wood framing; can be stapled or friction-fit. Easy to handle and install. Trim and fabricate with a utility knife. Meets thermal specifications. Improves interior noise control. Inorganic. Non-corrosive to steel, aluminum or copper. Dimensionally stable and will not decay or slump in the cavity. SpaceSaver packaging reduces freight and streamlines handling. DESIGN CONSIDERATIONS In commercial roof/ceiling thermal applications, the building envelope must block air movement. Do not rely on the insulation or 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 project's unique requirements. Maintain facing integrity for vapor retarder performance. Kraft facings on this insulation will burn and must not be left exposed. Facings should be installed in substantial contact with approved ceiling, wall or floor material. APPLICABLE STANDARDS Surface burning characteristics comply with ASTM E84, a standard used to measure and describe properties of products in response to heat and flame under laboratory conditions. The results are not intended to reflect hazards presented under actual fire conditions. Base material is classified as noncombustible when tested per ASTM E136. See tables for data and other applicable standards.
