For superior energy efficiency and a safer, quieter home, insulate with easy-to-install options from Roxul . Unlike other insulation products, Roxul is made of stone wool, a combination of natural rock and recycled slag. An exceptional thermal insulator, stone wool helps a home stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer, while providing fire-resistant qualities that can make every room safer.
To insulate exterior walls, attics, crawlspaces and basements, use Roxul ComfortBatt. ComfortBatt provides consistent, comfortable indoor temperatures and energy savings throughout the year, translating into reduced heating and air conditioning costs and a home that’s easier on the environment. When properly installed, ComfortBatt saves 128 times more energy than was used for its production, transport and disposal.
Roxul Safe’n’Sound provides soundproofing insulation for use in interior walls, ceilings and floors. It offers an additional layer of protection and comfort while minimizing noise transfer due to its high density and non-directional fiber makeup. Effectively reducing airflow and sound transmission, Safe’n’Sound is ideal for soundproofing a bathroom, bedroom, home theater, laundry room, nursery or recording studio.
Both varieties of Roxul stone wool insulation are noncombustible, and can withstand temperatures up to 2150 degrees Fahrenheit. They also repel water, preventing impact on insulation R-value and insulation shape while resisting rot, mildew, mold and bacterial growth for a safer indoor environment.
Roxul insulations are available in bundles that cover up to 60 square feet of space for between $35 and $45, depending on desired R-value and insulation depth.
