Disappointed in this owens corning product! this product is so delicate you can`t even get it out of the bag without ripping and tearing and falling apart which made installation very difficult, time will tell how it performs but i won`t buy again.

Easy to work with. Stayed together in its shape. 23"...
Easy to work with. Stayed together in its shape. 23" width fit well between 22" on center joists. We used it to dampen sound between 2 floors, it made a very noticeable difference even before installing dry wall on ceiling.
