Sound control batts like Johns Manville?s ComfortTherm? are polywrapped encapsulated fiberglass designed for reducing sound transmission through interior walls or floors. Because sound control performance depends on insulation thickness, not density, the ComfortTherm Sound Control Batts are 3 1/2" thick, made to fill standard 2'x4' wood frame cavities.
ComfortTherm Sound Control Batts significantly reduce unwanted sound transmission from appliances, TVs, stereos and ventilation systems when installed in standard interior wood frame cavities. Since ComfortTherm Sound Control Batts are designed for use inside interior walls and floors, they are perforated and do not perform as a vapor retarder.
