This product is intended for use in either residential or commercial construction as thermal insulation in walls. These batts are designed for use in standard width wood framed construction where a vapour retarder is needed. The batts have a kraft facing without flanges and can be friction-fit between wall studs for non-exposed applications.
Installing this product will save time and improve productivity by reducing field labour. Stapling is not required because the fiberglass fills the entire cavity. In addition to its thermal properties, this product also provides excellent acoustical performance.

SpeedyR Tabless Batts friction-fit between wood studs and do not require stapling.
For most areas, vapour retarders should be installed on the warm-in-the-winter side of the insulation (toward the interior). A vapour retarder is any material that limits or restricts the transmission of water vapour.
Common vapor retarders include kraft or foil facings adhered directly to fiberglass insulation and nylon or polyethylene films applied over insulation filled building cavities.
For some warm and humid areas, vapour retarders—if used—should be installed outside the heating or building envelope. It is not appropriate to install kraft faced fiberglass with the facing toward the exterior. Check local practice and/or building codes before installation.
