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. :-)

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.

which side goes up?

i notice the safe n sound has a hard side and a soft side. which side is facing you when putting in wall or ceiling and does it matter? will it diminish the sound blocking capabilities?
Asked by: dchannon
I didn't notice a difference. If you mean the label side, I kept that down-facing and the "soft" side toward the air gap. In the videos Roxul puts out, they seem not to care which side is facing. http://www.roxul.com/products/residential/how+to+videos. You can also find these on Youtube.

How does this perform in a ceiling WITHOUT drywall? I am most interested in how well it dampens sound for one house level from the room on the other level that is producing the sound. I don't plan to put drywall up if I can help it, because it is a shop space. Would it "dampen" sound? If so, would it dampen treble, mid range, or bass? Thanks for any info!
Asked by: Kirk
Hello: For the specifics on Safe 'n' Sound performance, do a web search for "Roxul Safe N Sound filetype:pdf". You will find a series of documents on the Roxul site that describe the sound attenuation properties. This said, all of the floor joists and flooring will still transmit sound to the floors above. That is why multiple layers of drywall are key to reducing sound. If you will be using power tools in your shop space, this step is essential, in addition to Roxul. Here are some tips: (1) Seal all air openings: Gaps in the walls, e.g. around ducts, pipes and wiring, will allow sound to pass through. Make sure all gaps are carefully sealed. DAP 230 is a good solution, with the 'Window and Door' version of Great Stuff foam for large spaces. (2) HVAC vents: Sound travels easily through the air -- including HVAC ducts and vents. If possible, seal all vents into and out of your shop. (3) Double up your drywall: First, apply a thick double bead of DAP 230 sealant along the bottom of each joist. Let it cure for 2r hours. The mount your first layer of drywall -- and DO NOT try to screw it tight to the joists. The goal is to tighten it until it touches the DAP, which will dampen vibration. Also leave a small gap around the edges next to the walls -- to ensure that vibration is not transferred to the wall. Then mount a second layer of drywall over the first, and use DAP 230 to 'glue' them together. Apply two full tubes of DAP 230 to each 4' x 8' panel. This will form a flexible connection between the sheets of drywall, to attenuate sound. You can use a few screws to hold the second interior sheet in place. Leave a small gap around each edge and joint -- so the interior drywall sheet does not touch the floor or ceiling -- and fill the gaps with DAP 230. (4) Follow the same process for the walls, with Roxul in the stud bays covered by two layers of drywall. Otherwise, your walls will transmit sound up to the floor above. As you can see, it is difficult to dampen sound -- and there is no easy 'magic bullet'. I hope this is helpful, Mark

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.

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.
