Great sound dampening almost studio quality
This is a great product easy to instal and handle. I did all my entire interior walls at home and it's just so quiet. Plus it has all the benefits of regular insulation but I think this is a way better product than fiber glass

    Denimum Insulation
    This stuff is fabulous!!! It is easy to handle, not scratchy and tears easily. I am so glad I selected this product over the traditional fiberglass product.

    Excellent Insulation Choice
    Bought this insulation as a sound barrier between the main floor and the basement that I am finishing. The floor joists were at odd widths, generally between 19 - 21 inch centers. The perforations made it easy to get a nice fit. About 80% of them had two perforations each. The other 20% only had one perforation down the center. I wish they all had the same double perforations. Insulation is not itchy like fiberglass. But is very dusty, making a mask and goggles a necessity. Almost impossible to cut. But very easy to tear, so I had no issues. I even tore lengthwise when the pieces did not have a double perforation. I used insulation wires to hold the bats in the top of the floor joists. After installation, sound reduction was incredible in the previously "paper thin" floor. The marginally extra cost was well worth ease of installation and sound reduction qualities.

    New Construction use
    I insulated a 1200 sq ft newly constructed house, walls & ceilings. Used R13 in walls and R30 in ceilings. No itch, but still had to use a dust mask as it does release cotton, like the lint you find in your dryer filter. Way better than fiberglass. Hard to cut so we ended up just tearing it by hand. Came out ok. The only problem is that it is dense and heavier than fiberglass so it sags and falls out of walls & ceilings if not tight fitting. We ended up running bare on ceiling at 18" centers to keep it from falling out. With the banging on the roof by the roofers, it would just fall out. Other than that, it is a good sound deadening, environmentally friendly and formaldehyde free product. Will use it again now that I know how to handle it.

    Love it!! Very easy to install. Wish there was more variety in the quantities you have to purchase.
    This is only pennies per foot more than fiberglass insulation and very well worth it. VERY easy to install. I am a woman in my mid fifties and I hung some 900' of ceiling and walls by myself in a day. It was like stuffing pillows into the spaces. Perforations make it so that almost every space you have is prefit and the 16" whole pieces fit very well. I could hear the sound deadening effect immediately, even before the sheetrock was hung. The cons are how dusty it is (but what insulation isn't) and when you do have to cut the length I found a good pair of scissors worked better than a utility knife. I also wish you had more choices in the number of bags you had to buy, say 6 or 8 bags vs. 12 bags.

    Not right for my application.
    Good product. It was not right for insulating walls before drywall.

    Great Idea, could be better
    I was forced into buying the 23" wide battens as my builder left me with 17" on center floor joists in my basement. I chose this product over spray foam strictly because of cost. The biggest problem with the battens is they are perforated inconsistently throughout the package. One batten may have two perforations, another may have just one and they will be of different widths. They also tend to sag a great deal because of the perforations which forced me to buy webbing to keep the battens in place until the ceiling was drywalled. There's a definite decrease in noise right now even without the drywall on the ceiling so the product seems to be doing fine there.

    Great product
    Used this product in the walls and ceiling in the bottom floor of our remodel. We decided to give it a try after using the fiberglass insulation in our upstairs remodel. Easy to put in walls and ceiling.

    Love this product!
    I am a middle aged woman...installation was easy. I used it in a partially finished attic where the kids store and play with legos. The denim is safe for them and doesn't look like typical pink. Fun, warm, safe and easy to install...what's not to love??
