CertainTeed Insulation meets highest standards of Fire Safety

Thermal performance, moisture management, air tightness and acoustics are key benefi ts of choosing the right insulation during construction or renovation. However there is one important feature of insulation that is often ignored – fi re safety.  Because fi ber glass is made primarily from sand and glass, it is naturally noncombustible and stays that way for the life of the home. Other types of insulation require fi re-retardant additives, which lose their eff ectiveness over time.  Naturally noncombustible, unfaced CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation™ requires no chemical additives to provide the fi re protection. CertainTeed unfaced Sustainable Insulation™ paired with MemBrain™ Continuous Air Barrier and Smart Vapour Retarder is the ideal solution. Preventing the spread of fi re between rooms and units is also important. Insulation can be used in walls between rooms, in basement walls and ceilings to increase fi re safety while helping to create quieter, more peaceful spaces.
