Description

Fiberglass Insulation

The low density fiberglass insulation is manufacfured for the purpose of insulation roofs of different types against radiant heat and sound. Also known as glasswool, this thermal and sound insulation material is the oldest and popular insulation material.

Fiberglass insulation has been in existence for over 80 years though being outdated with other insulation materials such as rockwool insulation and polyethylene foam. Glass wool is a perfect sound/thermal insulating material

  • The fiberglass Insulation roll has a single side foil that helps reflect heat thereby adding more heat barrier advantage.
  • Fiberglass Insulation roll is a fire resistant material, the glasswool can withstand direct fire upto 450 degrees Celsius
  • Fiberglass is a water resistant materials, that means that it cannot be affected by water in case of any leakages or direct contact with water
  • Since it is made of thin glasswool that irritates easily, rodents and insects don’t like fiberglass, so they will not build nests when installed

How is fiberglass insulation installed?

Installion of fiberglass insulation is a relatively straightforward process, though it require some necessary precautions and techniques to ensure its effectiveness.

Find bellow a step-by-step guide on how fiberglass insulation is installed. It’s crucial to wear protective clothing such as goggles, gloves, and a mask before starting the installation process. Fiberglass particles can be irritating to the skin and respiratory system.

  1. Measure the length of the area where you will install the insulation. Use a utility knife or scissors to cut the fiberglass batts or rolls to fit snugly into place between wall studs or ceiling joists.
  2. Once you have properly cut your pieces, begin placing them into position. Gently press them in so that they fit tight against each other without any gaps or spaces. Be careful not to compress or squeeze the insulation too much as this can reduce its effectiveness.
  3. If there are any obstructions like electrical wires or pipes within the walls or ceilings, make sure to carefully maneuver around them while still maintaining even coverage throughout.
  4. After all sections are fitted in place, use staples or adhesive tape designed for insulation materials to secure any loose edges and prevent sagging over time.
  5. Remember that proper ventilation is essential when installing fiberglass insulation due to potential airborne particles. Open windows and doors during installation if possible and consider using fans for added airflow while working with larger areas.
  6. Installing fiberglass insulation requires protective gear, accurate measurements for cutting pieces correctly fitting between studs/joists without compression issues; securing loose edges with staples/tape; being cautious around obstacles like wires/pipes; ensuring proper ventilation during installation processes by opening doors/windows using fans if needed
