Product Overview

ROCKWOOL COMFORTBATT is a semi-rigid stone wool batt insulation for exterior wood and steel stud applications in both new construction and renovations.

It is also offers water and moisture resistance and excellent sound absorbency. COMFORTBATT is an effective way to improve a home's energy efficiency. It is GREENGUARD Gold Certified and contributes to a healthier indoor environment.

The use of vapor barriers is dictated by your local code requirement typically and this can change dependent on the climate zone you are in. Can you email us direct with this question and we can reply direct with additional information. Email to contactus@rockwool.com

I only need 5 bags, not entire pallet

Asked by Nathan May 24, 2020

Answer

You can order by the bag if it’s stocked locally at a store and can be purchased at that location. If it is not stocked locally at a store, it can only be purchased in 12 bag increments.

Is this safe to use around standard two plug electrical outlet box?

Asked by Mlee6 May 10, 2020

Answers

Yes, we used the rockwool throughout the whole house and no problems. The rockwool is suppose to be fire resistant or proof.

Is this material sound proof as well?

Asked by Lut March 14, 2020

Answers

All ROCKWOOL will provide some sound and some thermal value due to the nature of this rock based mineral wool. COMFORTBATT R15 would be expected to perform similarly to 3" SAFEnSOUND

Can you lay this product over suspended ceiling tiles, troffer fixtures, etc?

Asked by Sniggud March 12, 2020
1
Answer

In theory yes, however note we do not test in suspended ceiling systems. One factor to consider is that your ceiling grid is strong enough to hold the weight of the batt insulation. Email us direct at contactus@rockwool.com for further support, if required

Asked by ML February 2, 2020
1
Answer

A tent type carport will not give you any true way to affix it or hold tight to the fabric. You will also need to have a vapor barrier for this type of insulation. This insulation will also hold water so exposed to elements would not be in your best interest. You may want to explore a foam insulation. It can be spray glued in place and wont wick or hold water. Hope this bit of info helps in your endeavor

Insulation installed easily, no airborne fiberglass to inhale or itchy...
Insulation installed easily, no airborne fiberglass to inhale or itchy rash. Cuts easily with a serrated saw (bread knife)! Made my cabin much quieter and keeps the heat in. I expect it to keep it cool in the warmer months as well.

The best product!
I have replaced all of the old 1955 insulation in my home and i am working on the last room right now.I'm using R14 for 2 x 4 application inside my walls.I am so glad that i'm using Roxul as it has already shown to lower my heating bills and the accoustics changed right away.I don't hear much noise outside anymore.It is so easy to install and it's not itchy,i'm cutting the pieces with a bread knife.Thanks guys for a great product!

It's easy to work with, not as dusty as fiberglass. I love its water repellent and fire resistant qualities. Even though it is quite a bit more expensive than fiberglass, it's long term durability makes it worth the price. It is stiffer and more dense than fiberglass which makes it easier to cut and shape as needed. I just used a bread knife.

This should make regular fiberglass insulation obsolete
I'm remodeling my 1950 mid century modern home one room at a time. I started with the hardest room to heat & cool, knocked out the old plaster & had the room sprayed with rigid & soft foam. The guys rushed the job & left some thin spots and even bare wood showing thru. I wanted to fill voids with Roxul but could not find it anywhere in Oklahoma so I hung the drywall anyway. Since then I've found a dealer 30 miles from me that can order it. I've since used Roxul in my sun room & garage. I like it better than the foam & I can easily install it myself.

Better Conformance to Joist Spacing
Fiberglass batts depend on springback to original shape, from large compression in packaging. That springiness then results in buckling if a bit oversize for the space. Rockwool doesn't do this. Lost contact with confining surfaces destroys insulation value.

130 year old church restoration, ideal product
Installing comfort batt insulation in the walls and floor of a 130 year old William Critchlow Harris church/cottage upgrade. As this structure is a 'balloon' design, fire concern was paramount. Simple installation even with so many cuts, and huge long term benefits. Ideal application for your product.
by Michael
I am happy with this product.
I like it when i get asked what i'm putting into my walls.I let friends know that this product is safe to handle and not itchy.I'm using a bread knife to cut pieces to fit.I've got peace of mind knowing it's not going to grow mold,it's fire resistant,easy to install and i won't hear as much outside noise in my home.Right now i am installing this product and i am 3/4 completed.

We won't use anything but this product in our builds!
We do both custom and high volume manufacturing for tiny homes on wheels. It's important to us that the products we spec out to use are easy to install and work effectively for our applications. This product does exactly that. Sounds carry far and wide even in tiny homes. So, when we have new families moving into a small space, this product makes an excellent noise dampener in between closed off rooms to provide an element of privacy where it can normally be hard to find. Nevermind its obvious positives, this product is just far superior at the end of the day. It's our gold standard for each home that we send out of our shop and it makes us proud!

I WILL BUY THIS PRODUCT OVER & OVER & OVER AGAIN!!!!
Ive been a fan of Roxul aka "Rockwool" ever since Mike Holmes Introduced it to his show Holmes on Homes. Had to wait a couple of years before it came to the States but when it did, i was elated!!! I got to try the water test and burning it, and boy was it amazing, just as described and show. I will never ever use the pink insulation ever again!! Re-insulating that garage picture i sent you in 90degree heat, after done that garage kept a temp of 70 degrees, i was extremely impressed!! ROXUL HEAD 4 LIFE!!!!!!!
