The Blow-In-Blanket System was been around for more than 20 years. This is a state of the art insulation system that uses virginfiberglass insulation (no additives, binding agents, or chemicals) to provide seamless insulation to ceilings, floors, and walls. This system utilizes a hose and nozzle to blow loose fiberglass into the cavity behind mesh netting and attach it to the studs. BIBS is made from recycled materials, meets LEED credits and also has a GreenGuard certification. In addition to the sustainability factor, BIBS provides quality sound control, protection from moisture, and reduces air infiltration.
Knauff EcoBatt® doesn’t look like your typical insulation. EcoBatt® is the next generation of insulation representing a high level of sustainability with its natural brown color. The brown color was developed from ECOSE™ technology, revolutionary after five years of research. This is made from sand and other recycled organic materials instead of petroleum-based chemicals. It does not contain the formaldehyde or dyes found in traditional fiberglass insulation. EcoBatt® delivers exceptional quality and durability along with high sustainability.
