ROXUL COMFORTBATT®

ROXUL COMFORTBATT® is a stone wool insulation product for use in both new residential construction and renovations. This semi-rigid batt has a unique flexible edge designed to compress as the batt is inserted into walls, attics, ceilings and floor frames. The flexible edge springs back, expanding the batt against the frame studs to give a complete fill. ROXUL COMFORTBATT® compensates for normal variations in stud centres caused by distortion or warping. The special flexible characteristic at the insulation edge ensures the expected R-value is achieved.

    Highly recommended, superior performance batt insulation

    ROXUL ComfortBatt provides superior thermal performance that you can depend on. As a contractor, time means money on the job site, and ROXUL installs quickly and easily. As a real estate expert, it always comes down to return on investment. ROXUL checks that box, as well. Top that with the added benefits of being fire and water resistant, plus GreenGuard certified for indoor air quality, and you've got the ideal thermal insulation. As a family man, that added protection is important. It's why I chose ROXUL ComfortBatt for my own home.

    Used it in my basement walls. Great for insulation and very water repellent. Cuts easily. It's a bit finicky and crumbles more readily than I would have expected. Best to figure out exactly where you want it and never move it again.

      As a Board member for the Warner Historical Society, this product was recommended to the Building and Grounds Committee to save energy for our Main Street House attic (one of three buildings we maintain.) The fire resistant quality of the product was a bonus! The existing insulation was minimal and the attic area was not usable for storage. As co-chair of the Committee, I purchased this product for the Society and organized a work crew to add this insulation to our attic area and top it off with new plywood for additional storage area. This is a preferred product to work with! The Board's reaction was "WOW!"

        Used this to insulate the attic and am pleased with the results. Easy to install quickly with only one pair of hands, and works well to keep the heat in. No complaints and would recommend this to others.

            The batts are sized appropriately for lumber dimensions. Greater R value per inch thickness. Remains in place without stapling.
