Naturally noncombustible, unfaced CertainTeed Sustainable Insulation, unlike some other types of insulation, requires no chemical additives to provide its fire protection. Beyond thermal performance, moisture management, air tightness and acoustics, fire safety is another key benefit of the proper insulation for construction. The manufacturers of CertainTeed insulation have announce that their product meets the highest standards for fire safety, including:

  • It is classified as noncombustible under CAN4-S114-2005 testing;
  • Meets Class A Standards under Smolder Resistance: – ULC-S129-1995 – testing; and,
  • Is accepted as a fire block in wood frame walls under international and many local building codes.

CertainTeed unfaced Sustainable Insulation paired with MemBrain Continuous Air Barrier and Smart Vapour Retarder is a fire safety solution.
