Johns Manville: RBI Batts, Basement Rolls, Sound Control


At Johns Manville, we are committed to helping you create more comfortable, healthier and energy efficient indoor environments. That’s why we revolutionized the building insulation industry by pioneering the development of Formaldehyde-free™ fibre glass building insulation over a decade ago. JM Formaldehyde-free insulation provides excellent thermal and acoustical performance and now utilizes an innovative bio-based binder, made mostly with rapidly renewable plant-based materials, that offers improved handling, easier cutting and less dust than our previous product. Because here at JM, we believe that in every detail, materials matter.


JM unfaced building insulation is made with a bio-based binder for better indoor air quality. Our unfaced batt insulation provides R-values up to R-40 for effective heat control from the exterior while also effectively controlling unwanted noise in interior walls.


JM Sound-SHIELD® batts provide maximum sound control effectiveness by completely filling the cavity wall. These sound control batts are compatible with wood or steel studs in walls and are also used in floor/ceiling assemblies. JM sound control batts can effectively increase STC ratings by 8 to 10 points in certain assemblies. Use of resilient channels can make wall assemblies even more efficient.
