Thermal performance, moisture management, air tightness and acoustics are key benef ts of choosing the right insulation during construction or renovation. However there is one important
feature of insulation that is often ignored – fire safety. Because fiber 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 fire-retardant additives, which lose their eff ectiveness over time. Naturally noncombustible, unfaced CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation™ requires no chemical additives to provide the f re protection. CertainTeed unfaced Sustainable Insulation™ paired with MemBrain™ Continuous Air Barrier and Smart Vapour Retarder is the ideal solution. Preventing the spread of fire between rooms and units is also important. Insulation can be used in walls between rooms, in basement walls and ceilings to increase f re safety while helping to create quieter, more peaceful spaces. www.sustainableinsulation.ca
