Questions & Answers

Can this be used with 2x6 framing?

I don't see an option for x6 framing. I'm planning on using this to help sound proof an internal wall/room in a basement that is framed with 2x6. Will this be sufficient?
Asked by: patgmac
Yes. You can use it for interior walls of 2x6 thickness. You actually want a 1" air barrier between the room that will create the sound and the room that you're trying to stop the sound from going into. If both rooms will be sources of sound, then you can put the Roxul in the middle, if possible. Remember there are, at least, 3 things you should do to minimize sound: 1) use acoustic caulk around outlets and any holes in the walls. 2) Use Roxul. 3) use steel resilient channel and hang your drywall on that. You can also use QuietRock or thick drywall or 2 panels of drywall glued. I'm not a Roxul rep. But my son plays the bass on the 1st floor and we've been able to decrease the sound to some degree by placing it below the subfloor. We still need to do more to decrease it further. I haven't had the chance/money to use the resilient channel and I'll need to do that to decrease the vibration from the 4x10" speakers amplifying his bass guitar. I'll also need to put it on the interior walls surrounding the room as well. Best of luck to you. :-)

Can you staple this or is it too thick/hard?

Can you staple this or is it too thick/hard?
Asked by: calva
You can staple through this. It's 3" thick and you can compress it. But if you compress it so that you can staple it, you won't get the sound proofing qualities it offers. If you're wondering if it will remain up on its own between 2 joists that are 16" on center the answer is yes. I have batts of it sitting between 2 joists in the basement ceiling. They have been there for 8 months and they are holding their position. Nothing is falling down. I hope this helps.

what are the approximate physical dimensions of the packaged product, i'm trying to determine how many I can carry in my vehicle at 1 time.
Asked by: DR
The packaging is thin plastic so the height is 47.5" or so, Width is about 25" and the depth is about 15.25 and a bit more. You can squish it a bit...but not a lot. I was proudly able to put 5 in my 1990 Honda Civic Hatch-back, but only 6 in my 1995 Honda Odessey van. One of them fit easily in the passengers seat and no one else was with me at the time. Though I believe I could have fit one more in the van if I tried harder. :-) I hope this helps.

Use for firestopping

I'm not putting this in a stud cavity. Rather, I have a 2" wide gap in a concrete wall, and I'm looking to stuff some mineral wool insulation in the gap as a firestop. Should I get the 3" safe 'n' sound, and squeeze it into place? Or should I get a 2" thick Roxul AFB, which will be barely compressed? I realize the product may not be tested for this assembly or application. Repairing the wall is not a practical option, due to the configuration.
Asked by: someone
I'm in no way involved with Roxul. But if it were me, since this is for fire-stopping, I'd use the 3" and stuff it. If it were soundproofing, then I'd use the 2" because compression decreases the sound-proofing.

Safe 'n' Sound 3 in. x 15-1/4 in. x 47 in. Soundproofing Stone Wool Insulation (12-Roll) is rated 4.3 out of 5 by 73.

It was apparent after the first bag that this stuff really dampens the sound. I've done two rooms and even with bare stud walls you can really tell the difference when you step in them. This stuff can be a bit difficult to install when HVAC ducting is present between the joists as it isn't as flexible as fiberglass but it is still well worth it.

If you're looking to sound proof a room, or create your own DIY acoustic treatments, this is the insulation you are looking for. Compared to other products, this is by far the most reasonably priced. But don't let the price fool you, it does a great job at capture sound frequencies. Overall very happy with this product, and would recommend it to anyone looking to sound proof or treat an existing room.

I purchased four packages of Roxul Safe 'n' Sound 3 in. x 15-1/4 in. x 47 in. to treat my home recording studio which consisted of a drumset recording room and a production room (corner super chunk bass traps and sound baffles for walls and ceilings) and the product worked great. It was easy to cut and stack, minus the fact it "flaked" off in small chunks and when stacking them in triangle sections they tended to buckle in the middle and fall over. I've had them up for about 4 weeks now and have received many compliments on how well it dampened the sound in these rooms.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good but not consistent Just installed 24 rolls. If you need a lot its cheaper to order the per roll than pallet. Recommend safety glasses especially if space is above head height, gloves and long sleeves would help to prevent itching from all the tiny scratches you get from the sharp edges in the dust which doesnt float around. The batts needs to be more consistent the density ranges from soft cotton to packed cotton candy. The softer ones fall apart if adjusted too much. The denser ones feel better and last longer if it needs to be adjusted. When cutting for wires and pipes dont mess with the batt too much or it falls apart we did like in the videos and theres gaps at the bottom between the wires and wallswalls we filled some of the gaps with leftovers and tried notching. Anything bigger than standard wire suggest using notch method. For standard wires i cut some batts just under the wire and put the remaining on top of the wire, others i cut then split the batt, for tight areas i removed the split part and slid it behind the wire and covered it with the rest. Some of our studs were oversized and we cut and stacked the batts to fit. Just doing interior walls with nothing on exterior walls greatly reduced the echo and higher noises when walking on the sub floor.

Installed 2,000 sq ft with two people made the job easy. Only issue is that I have had a roof leak that took 3 try's by the roofing company to fix the leak. The batting breaks down a bit after handling it two to three times. The water just sits on top of the insulation until there is to much and then finds it way to the floor. Tenant is not complaining about the noise nor the cold, it did it's job.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Very Good product to deaden noise We renovated a condominium on the first floor of a three story building, all of the plumbing went through a common wall between the master bedroom and the guest bathroom. Before renovation flushing toilets and running showers could be heard as if they were in your bedroom. After installing and completing the reno the noise level has dropped to thepoint where your are aware there is something in the wall but no where neare the level that was there before. Part of the noise level we still experience is due to the fact the insulation needed to be trimmed to fit between the wall board and the drain lines, so we were not able to use the full thickness but the product has done it's job and it is easy to sleep through the night when the old people on the third floor answer natures calling as well as the second floor continuous showering!
