Product Data Sheet QuietZone Acoustic Batts Sliding doors should be avoided where optimum noise control is desired. Doors opening on hallways should not open across from one another. Electrical Light switches and outlets should not be located back-to-back. Ceiling fixtures should be surface mounted and openings around boxes should be sealed airtight. Circuit breaker boxes, telephone outlets and intercom systems should be located on well- insulated interior walls and never on exterior, part or hallway walls. Plumbing Pipe runs should be designed with swing arms so expansion and contraction can occur without binding, thus eliminating unwanted water flow generated sound. Piping should also be isolated from surrounding structures with resilient mounts. Installation of fixtures back-to- back should be avoided. In all cases, openings made in walls should be caulked or sealed to ensure optimum acoustical integrity. Ducts and HVAC Equipment Since ducts can easily transmit sound, duct design should be given special consideration when planning the heating and air conditioning system. The installation of a quiet, high quality heating and air conditioning unit is recommended to reduce duct-carried noise. When possible, isolate equipment away from "quiet" areas. Owens Corning offers a variety of duct systems, wraps and liners that effectively reduce noise. Fire Safety Kraft facing will burn. Do not leave exposed. Facing must be installed in substantial contact with an approved ceiling, floor or wall material. Keep open flame and other heat sources away from facing. Do not place insulation within 3" of light fixtures or similar electrical devices unless device is labeled for contact with insulation. Use only unfaced insulation between wood framing and masonry chimneys. Do not use insulation in spaces around metal chimneys, fireplaces, or flues. Unfaced insulation is considered non- combustible by model building codes. Flame Spread 25 products are flame spread rated and can be left exposed where codes allow. See package for warnings, fire hazard and installation instructions, or call 1-419-248-8234. Applicable Standards QuietZone acoustic batts comply with: ASTM C 665, Type II, Class C. Federal Specification HH-I-521F has been cancelled and is replaced by ASTM C 665. Uniform Building Code (ICBO) building types III, IV, and V National Building Code (BOCA) building types 3, 4, and 5 Standard Building Code (SBCCI) building types III, V, and VI. Always check with your local building code official regarding local requirements affecting installation of all building components. Fiber Glass and Mold As manufactured, fiber glass insulation is resistant to mold growth. However, mold growth can occur on building materials, including insulation, when it becomes contaminated with organic material and when water is present. To avoid mold growth on fiber glass insulation, remove any water that has accumulated and correct or repair the source of that water as soon as possible. Insulation that has become wet should be inspected for evidence of residual moisture and contamination, and any insulation that is contaminated should be promptly removed and replaced.
