Calculation ToolsOur range of professional tools to ease your work.
ROXUL SAFE’n’SOUND® is designed specifically for sound attenuation. The density and thickness of the product is optimised for acoustical performance. SAFE’n’SOUND® is not branded with an R value as it’s typically used in interior partition walls that do not require an R value. Therefore, SAFE’n’SOUND® would not pass an inspection if used in an exterior wall.
ROXUL COMFORTBATT® is used in exterior walls and so the quality control performed on the product is done to meet the standards required per R value labelling. It is also branded with an R value and so would pass a home inspection so long as the R value as per the building code is met. Like all our products, ROXUL COMFORTBATT® is made out of mineral wool and therefore offers some acoustical performance.
The fastener type used should be appropriate to the substrate [concrete wall, wood stud, etc.] Please refer to the fastener guideline document found on our website.
You can use a construction grade glue/adhesive to temporarily attach the insulation in a situation where the stud wall is being built on top/after the insulation. In this case, the stud wall would hold the insulation in place. We do not recommend permanently attaching the insulation using glue as this may cause the insulation to peel/fall off once the glue dries.
Yes, you can but if inspected, would not pass the inspection as a product with a labelled R value is required.
