Sage&Sound goes under your subfloor, in most cases that means you install in from the below storey.
Yes, it will certainly help reduce noise. I would suggest that you put something up to hold it in place as it will tend to fall apart over time. Staple some plastic or a screen would do. It doesn’t bother your skin at all, which makes it great to work with.
Its a 3" thickness and will provide approx. R11...…. COMFORTBATT at 3.5" will be R15 and fully fill the 2 x 4 cavity depth which is recommended. Further questions? email us direct firstname.lastname@example.org and we can address them
Dear George: Yes. For whatever reason, RockWool doesn't advertise the R-value of the Safe 'n Sound version of their rock wool product -- but it is just as effective for insulation as the standard version. A couple of tips for installation: (1) The fibers are itchy and irritating, like fiberglass. Wear gloves and a good face mask -- NOT the kind with a rubber band in the back. Look for a 3M 07192 respirator online. For large jobs we also wear a cheap tyvek painting suit, so our clothes don't get filled with the fibers. (2) You can hold the batts in place in overhead joist bays with Simpson insulation wire, which Home Depot carries. (3) Safe 'n Sound helps to reduce sound but is not a magical cure-all. If you want to reduce sound in a room, read-up on the Web, e.g. on double walls, double drywall, sealing shared HVAC ducts, etc. I hope this is helpful. Mark
SAFEnSOUND or COMFORTBATT options are oversized for either 16" or 24" oc wood or steel stud dimension framing and will have a pressure fit. No need for fasteners. Check if you do not require fire rated drywall for your local code requirement.
Note that ROCKWOOL products should not be left exposed to the elements. If this water pump box is sealed from exposure to the elements ROCKWOOL may be an option to review. Note we do not have any specific systems testing for this application
SAFEnSOUND will provide an R3.9 per inch..... we have a STD letterhead available confirming this testing. Note at 3" (Approx R11) it may not be high enough to meet you code requirement. For further response please email direct email@example.com Also note this is used as an interior batt, pressure fit between wood or steel stud framing members in interior partition walls and floor / ceilings
Yes, but I would suggest framing the edges with tape. To make mounting & demounting easier. The great thing about this product is that it will not throw off fibers that can irritate skin of people or animals.
