Once, NFPA 13 Standard only mandated the use of sprinklers in the interstitial spaces of multi-family construction projects. Now, code changes allow the substitution of insulation - and Inner-Safe Non-Combustible Concealed Space Batt Insulation is the smart, cost-effective way to fill interstitial space. Its an innovative new alternative to sprinklers or blown-in insulation that meets and exceeds code, while installing quickly, easily and affordably.

ASJ+ is the newest generation all-service jacket composed of aluminum foil, reinforced with a glass scrim bonded to a kraft paper interleaving with an outer film layer leaving no paper exposed. A matching ASJ+ butt strip is furnished in the carton for each section. The jacket is white, and the longitudinal lap of the jacket has a self-sealing adhesive.
Earthwool is the new benchmark that stands apart for its genuine sustainability, unsurpassed performance and consistently high product quality.
Fiber glass insulation is a proven performer when it comes to saving energy. We all know a building that is thermally efficient reduces the amount of energy used. But this also means less fossil fuel is burned to produce that energy, resulting in a reduction of polluting gases released into the atmosphere and less need for new power plants.
Since 2012 Knauf Insulation North America has used the Living Building Challenge (LBC) Red List as a developmental benchmark. The Red List is a list of chemicals that are avoided in material imperative for the construction of LBC buildings. Formaldehyde is just one of about 800 chemicals on the Red List. Today, no other insulation company comes close to the sustainable development achieved by Knauf Insulation in this regard.
