WALLS
CertaPro AcoustaTherm Batts are designed to fill the entire stud cavity and be held in place by friction-fit. For applications where the wall is not finished on both sides or the insulation does not fill the cavity, supplementary support of the insulation, such as wire or insulation pins, shall be provided to hold the insulation in place.


SUSPENDED CEILING SYSTEMS
Install with the facing down toward the occupied area. When placing AcoustaTherm Batts over suspended ceiling panels, refer to the suspended ceiling manufacturer’s recommendations to ensure proper installation. Kraft facings are combustible; do not use in exposed applications. Check local code requirements.

These installation recommendations are general in nature. Other methods are acceptable. Please consult local building codes for recommendations best suited to the application.
