Is UltraLine made from recycled blue jeans?
Yes, UltraLine is manufactured using post-consumer denim and cotton fibers that we source from various facilities. UltraLine contains approx 80% recycled denim and cotton fibers.
Do I need protective clothing to install UltraLine?
UltraLine has no fiberglass itch and is easy to handle. A dust mask is recommended for all construction work.
Is UltraLine Fire Resistant?
Yes, each natural fiber of UltraLine is saturated with a natural fire retardant (borates) giving UltraLine insulation a Class-A fire rating.
What are the perforations?
UltraLine contains several pieces per bag that are perforated for off-size cavity installations. Depends on the thickness require, and different quantity and area size for the bag packed.
Can UltraLine be installed in contact with recessed lighting?
Yes, UltraLine can be installed in contact with recessed lighting but the lighting MUST be IC Rated. An air gap of six inches would need to be left for non-insulated lighting cans.
What happens when UltraLine gets wet?
UltraLine is manufactured to breathe and accept/release the moisture it receives in a timely manner. UltraLine also contains active mold inhibitors as well.
Will mold affect UltraLine?
The fire retardant used in making UltraLine also acts as an excellent mold and mildew inhibitor.

No, UltraLine does not contain any added formaldehyde or harmful irritants.

Installation

General Information

Because UltraLine Denim Insulation is compressed for shipping purposes, give it a shake prior to installing. This will help accelerate the natural rebounding properties of the fibers. Depending upon climate and environmental conditions, full rebound may take several days.

Install UltraLine Denim Insulation between the studs by simply fitting each batt firmly into place. UltraLine is engineered to fit standard 16″ O.C and 24″ O.C. framing with no additional sizing required. If you encounter an off-size cavity, either tear along a perforation or cut to create the proper fit. Your piece of insulation should be approx. 0.5″ wider and longer than the actual cavity. If building codes require a vapor barrier, it should be applied towards the living area after insulation installation.

Cut by scissors, the insulation to fit snugly around obstructions such as plumbing, vent lines, and electrical boxes. Use any left over pieces to fill small openings around windows and doors.

Walls

UltraLine Denim Insulation are a friction fit product. This means that they are slightly oversized for standard wall cavities. To install, merely insert the batt between the studding and tuck it in to ensure a tight fit. Approximate 30% of the batt’s in each bag of UltraLine to fit “off-size” cavities.

Ceilings

UltraLine Denim Insulation can be layered to achieve higher R-Values in ceiling applications. It is best to alternate the direction of the batt’s in each layer. UltraLine can be secured to the joists using either wire or a mesh. This will ensure the batt’s remain in place until drywall has been installed.

Floors/Crawl Spaces

UltraLine Denim Insulation is an effective option for insulating floors and crawlspaces as well. The insulation should be secured to floor joists or crawl space cavities in the same manner as ceiling applications, using either a mesh or wire support system.
