May 5, 2016 - CertainTeed NoiseReducer batts are 3-1/2-in. thick fiber glass batts designed to reduce sound transmission as well as to provide thermal insulation.

For use in both commercial and residential walls and ceilings—specifically for wood stud construction—NoiseReducer insulation helps control sound by breaking the path of sound vibration and absorbing unwanted noise, CertainTeed explains. The batts are also kraft-faced with tabs for attachment in interior walls.

CertainTeed adds the insulation resists mould and mildew and will not rot or deteriorate.
