DESCRIPTION
Basement Blanket Insulation is a flexible blanket composed of nonorganic glass fibres bonded together to form a uniformly textured, yellow blanket insulation. Furnished in unfaced rolls, its primary use is on interior residential basement walls. It is intended to be laminated with an appropriate facing suited to the specific job application.

PRODUCT BENEFITS
  • Excellent resistance to heat loss or gain
  • Saves energy and lowers operating costs

Check your local building code requirements.
Basement Wall Insulation is installed horizontally either half-wall or full wall, starting at the sill plate.

Half-wall application:
  • Nail a 2" x 2" furring strip to the edge of the sill plate at the top of all walls to be insulated.
  • Fasten a second row of 2" x 2" furring with power-actuated fasteners 48" or 72" below the sill plate furring, depending on the width of the insulation used. The 48" or 72" measurement must be the clear opening between both rows of furring.
  • Roll out the insulation and staple to the upper and lower furring strips with the facing exposed.


For full wall application:
  • Fasten a third row of 2" x 2" furring, 1/2" to 1" from the floor.
  • Staple a second roll of insulation to the center and lower furring strips. The second roll may have to be cut to fit. If so, cut the insulation and facing to a width equal to the clear opening dimension between the furring strips plus 11/2", then cut back the insulation 11/2" in order to form a stapling flange at the bottom.
  • Please contact CertainTeed prior to using an alternate method of installation.
