Roxul Safe'n'sound is made from natural and recycled materials. It is fire resistant due to it's high melting temperature (1177°C). Does not rot, promote mildew, fungus, or bacteria. This is a great product and an easy DIY job that anyone can do. Tools required for the job are a serrated bread knife it works better than a utility knife, measuring tape, long sleeve clothing and a dust mask. Although it is not advertised it does have and R value of 11.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by NickinVictoria this product does as reported: Muffles sound
Just read in a review that it didn't work for someone. I can attest to using this product on countless jobs, it is a winner. I prefer to install it in all walls, if the client will let me. Great sound dampening.... excellent product. In no way does it compare with the old fibreglass batts!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by paddyTO It's okay for sound insulation
Don't. Expect this product totally isolate sound transmission coz it does not. It tends to filter sound on higher frequency but muffle lower frequency. It is stillbetter than nothing, I have use it on all my interior walls and ceilings. It suppose to work with resilient channel and thicker drywall for best results. But then its more cost for slight gain.
Despite Roxul don't published Rvalue, it is of the same material of regular insulation but denser and heavier to give it the better sound and fire protection. It's Rvalue should be R12 base on thickness. Compare to pink or yellow fiberglass, this does not sag or compressed much and retain the shape.
The big bonus is it does not promote mold even wet. I have got rid of all the pink insulation when renovating.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by shortcat1 Good product
I had to redo the base of the wll of the shed of an old house that I bought since the baseplate, the bottom of the studs, the floor bolts and the fiberglass insulation had all rotted.
So I used pre-treated wood for the new baseplate and the bottoms of the studs that I had to repair/replace. But, for me, an important part was the insulation.
I read that this product is waterproof so it won't be affected by any moisture or water seepage that gets into it.
So far, so good. If things go the way I'm told they will, I'll be back in a few decades for the update.
I trust that it'll have been worth it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mrfixit001 I had an energy autit performed on my house. Most of the air leakage was through my basement . I installed Roxul insulation throughout my entire basement and after I had my 2nd audit done, my ratings increased from a 61 to a 68 which is the same as that of a house that was newly built. It was also a lot nicer to install than the fibrelass stuff as it expands out and pushes beteen the studs providing a dense coverage. Needless to say, our house is a lot warmer now.

I recently completed a basement renovation and used safe and sound along with resiliant channel to strap the drywall ceiling. My customer was shocked at how quiet their basement is now.
I trully hope they never have the oppertunity to the fire suppression!

This product is so easy to use and cuts down on noise dramaticly, the added fire safety is comforting and none of the fibres flying around like fibre glass insulation make it easy to use. My son plays guitar and loves the quiteness of his room now..
