Customer 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 4.7 out of 5 by 422.

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.

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.

I recommend using scissors to cut it. You'll have to make 2 passes with the scissors. This is not something where the more you stuff it, the better it works. you need to just press it lightly into the space. It will hang between 16" on center ceiling joists just fine. You want to leave a small amount of space between the noise making area and the noise-blocked area. I also love the fact that it's fire resistant as well. This stuff is rock-wool (basically), so wear gloves because like fiberglass, it will make you itch. This is just one part of a 3-part process. Fill in any holes with acoustic caulk. Then install Roxul. Then put up whatever drywall setup you want: QuietRock or metal channels and then drywall. One thing to note: We were trying to decrease sound moving from the basement to our bedroom and/or back. One thing we found was that since the duct-work ran to both areas, some of the sound still moves from our bedroom to the basement and back. There are ways to stop/decrease this sound movement using different duct work or installing something like QuietR from Owens Corning. I hope this helps.

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 used this product for better sound insulation between main level (where we have lot of kids activities currently) and the basement where we will have home theater and other entertainment activities. I used most of my bags for ceiling insulation. Unfortunately, our ceiling joists are 19" on center but Roxul only sells 16" and 24" center batts for residential customers. The company has batts for 19" center but is only sold to home builders. I inquired about the 19" center batts but they were not available anywhere in the local northern VA area. I therefore had to resort to 16" center batts, and had to cut 252 batts (21 bags x 12 batts per bag) along their longer side of 47". This more than doubled my work. The firmness of these batts were overall good, and the sound insulation seems to be working quite well. And therefore I am rating this product at 4. My experience with opening and using 21 bags of batts was that more than half of these bags had batts that were somewhat loose and lost their shape as I tried to maneuver them into the joists and around vent pipes for tight fit. When they lost their firmness and the shape, it was tough to hold them in place in-between the joists - they would sag and I had to use insulation support (http://www.homedepot.com/p/Simpson-Strong-Tie-24-in-Insulation-Support-100-Qty-IS24-R100/100375360) to help them stay in place. With this support, they did stay in place until we put the drywall 2-3 days later. If you are installing it in joists, keep in mind that you may not be able to cover 100% of empty spaces with these batts - you will have wires, and pipes, and bulk-heads to deal with. It will make it impossible for you to cover it all. I believe I was able to cover about 97-98% of the total ceiling area. The sound insulation quality of this product also seems to be working well. I saw considerable sound insulation after all of the joist space was covered with these batts. However, some sound was still leaking through but I guess it was from some of the remaining 2-3% of the area that I couldn't cover and through the basement door. Also, it did not fully block the low-frequency sound like a tricycle that my 2 year old twins were riding on the hardwood floor upstairs. I saw an additional sound insulation when 1/2" drywall were placed in the ceiling. I also changed the basement door to a solid-core door for better sound insulation. I plan to also use whether stripping around the door for additional sound insulation. All-in-all, the basement feels very quiet. It still doesn't fully block the low-frequency tricycle sound I talked about earlier.
