MILTON, ON (June 1, 2020) – ROCKWOOL Safe’n’Sound®, ROCKWOOL’s popular stone wool fire and acoustic batt insulation, is now offered in a new 6” thickness. Designed specifically for sound dampening and for faster and easier install between floors, the new 6” thick Safe’n’Sound® is available exclusively at The Home Depot Canada for the retail box channel.
Previously, to achieve a 6” thickness, customers had to install two, 3” layers of ROCKWOOL Safe’n’Sound® insulation. The new 6” ROCKWOOL Safe’n’Sound® batt product will allow contractors and DIYers to get the maximum sound and fire protection benefits while being friction fit between floors in a single layer, simplifying the process for greater efficiency – reducing installation time.
“We listened to market needs and feedback to develop a new offering in our ROCKWOOL Safe’n’Sound® line,” says Kim Friedrich, Marketing Manager – Canada, ROCKWOOL (North America). “This newly introduced 6” Safe’n’Sound® product improves the customer install experience, while providing the same multitude of benefits inherent to all ROCKWOOL stone wool products—sound absorbency, fire protection, moisture & mold resistance and the quality our customers have come to expect from ROCKWOOL stone wool insulation.”
New, 6” thick ROCKWOOL Safe’n’Sound® is available in wood stud sizes of 15.25” (16”OC), 23” (24”OC) and 19.2” (19.2”OC I-Joists), while the the full line of Safe’n’Sound® batt insulation products continues to be available in a variety of dimensions for use in residential applications such as between floors, in ceilings, and interior partition walls. Its density and non-directional fibre structure helps it to absorb sound, creating a quieter indoor living space. Withstanding temperatures up to 1,177°C, Safe’n’Sound® is noncombustible and will not produce toxic smoke or promote flames spreading, even when directly exposed to fire. Made primarily of stone, Safe’n’Sound® is also GREENGUARD® Gold Certified and contributes to a healthier indoor environment.
