SMARTBATT™ with MoistureSense™ Technology


CertainTeed SMARTBATT Insulation with MoistureSense™ Technology is a revolutionary way to help create healthier homes by intelligently addressing moisture. You can elevate moisture management with this advanced, proprietary technology—the only one of its kind.

SMARTBATT with MoistureSense Technology is the only batt insulation solution that adapts based on humidity levels. It blocks indoor moisture from entering when humidity in the cavity is low, and it breathes when it senses high humidity in the cavity that needs to be released to the interior conditioned space.

SMARTBATT is ideal in any area you would use traditional kraft insulation, especially crawlspaces, basements, bathrooms, laundry rooms, kitchens and exterior walls.

SmartBatt™ Creates Unparalleled Airtightness & Moisture Management

Watch how FineHomebuilding uses SmartBatt to create a superior airtight envelope without having to sacrifice moisture management. By taping the seams during the installation process, SmartBatt can be used as a continuous air barrier and has been 3rd party verified to achieve 1.6 ACH50 before either the drywall or exterior barrier were installed which helped get the ProHOME down to an ultimate 0.4 ACH50. This was all achieved without having to compromise on moisture management because SmartBatt has an integrated Smart Vapor Retarder that intelligently adapts its permeability to ambient conditions, helping to keep walls dry year round.
