UltraLine Denim Insulation is the successful combination of 35 years of insulation experience and a revolutionary patented manufacturing process that has created a superior and safe product.
UltraLine is made from high-quality natural fibers. These fibers contain inherent qualities that provide for extremely effective sound absorption and maximum thermal performance. UltraLine has No Fiberglass Itch and is easy to handle and work with. UltraLine contains no chemical irritants and requires no warning labels compared to other traditional products. There are no VOC concerns when using UltraLine, as it is safe for you and the environment.
UltraLine is also a Class-A Building Product and meets the highest ASTM testing standards for fire and smoke ratings, fungi resistance and corrosiveness. UltraLine Denim Insulation contains 80% post-consumer recycled natural fibers making it an ideal choice for anyone looking to use a high quality sustainable building material. UltraLine makes installation user-friendly.
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.
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.
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.
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.
