Learn how spray-applied glass fiber insulation can offer solutions for your hard to insulate areas. Used both as a highly effective thermal insulation and acoustic treatment, spray-applied glass fiber insulation can be applied to almost any surface configuration, allowing for greater design flexibility. Made with a high recycled post-consumer and post-manufacturer glass content, this product will contribute to LEED points in many ways. With low VOC’s, and as an inorganic, non-combustible material, it adds to occupant safety and health in several ways. This course will provide an overview of the properties and uses of spray-applied glass fiber insulation, and advantages over other available products.
