Blown-in Insulation

Blown-in insulation is loose-fill fiberglass, rock wool, or cellulose insulation that’s blown into building cavities or attics using special pneumatic equipment. This creates a seal that fills gaps and voids even around plumbing, electrical outlets, vent ducts, and other irregularities. Your Astro representative can help you decide which blown-in type is best for your needs – contact us today.

Fiberglass Blown-in

The Blow-In-Blanket System (BIBS®) is a time-tested insulation that custom fits all configurations and homes. It blows in easily and fills gaps and voids for thermal efficiency so your house is snug, secure, and more energy-efficient.

BIBS is fire-resistant, moisture-resistant, and does not attract or act as sustenance for animals. And because BIBS uses non-combustible fiber glass, there are no chemicals or noxious odors over time. In addition to sidewalls and metal framing, BIBS is ideal for under floors, in ceilings and wherever acoustic control is needed. It offers great thermal performance and high R-values, and won’t settle or separate, corrode pipes or wires, or produce mold or mildew.

With BIBS, loose-fill insulation is blown behind netting using specific installation techniques. BIBS is licensed by Ark-Seal to independent contractors so only qualified installers can apply it using approved insulation products. These include Johns Manville Climate Pro® or SpiderFiber®, CertainTeed InsulSafe® 4 or Optima™, and Knauf Perimeter Plus™.

Key Benefits

  • Contains no formaldehydes
  • Will not support mold growth
  • High installed R-values
  • Significantly decreases gaps or voids
  • High density, will not settle or shrink
  • Excellent sound proofing
  • Helps to qualify your home for an Energy Efficient Mortgage

Rock Wool Blown-in

ThermaTech Wall Spray Insulation is a spray-on mineral rock wool insulation that has a greater mass than most other blown-in fiberglass and cellulose insulations – which increases sound control. It’s an excellent choice for new and existing construction to reduce and eliminate plumbing noise, sound transmission through walls, and to provide an effective thermal and Class A fire barrier in perimeter and interior walls.

ThermaTech blown-in rock wool insulation is manufactured with a dry adhesive which requires the addition of water to activate the cohesive and adhesive strength for closed cavity applications. It’s an ecologically sound product made from recycled materials that doesn’t contain any asbestos, formaldehyde or chemical additives. Other included benefits are non-combustible, non-corrosive and odor-free. It will not absorb moisture, will not support mildew or fungus, and will not rot, decay or break-down.

Key Benefits

  • Chemical, asbestos, and formaldehyde free
  • Non-combustible
  • Superior sound control
  • Will not support mold growth
  • Inorganic fibers will not absorb moisture
  • Custom fit for increased energy savings

Cellulose Blown-in

Applegate cellulose insulation is blown into your attic and walls to form a protective, airtight blanket. Since cellulose is more versatile and maneuverable, it seals around plumbing and electrical outlets to form a snug fit. Plus, it uses 100% recycled newsprint to provide the highest quality cellulose insulation.

Key Benefits

  • Made with 100% recycled newspaper
  • Custom fit for increased energy savings
  • Provides a better R-value per inch in the attic
