The new product is designed to meet stricter energy codes and higher R-value recommendations by the Department of Energy. In fact, with a rating of R-49, Fatt Batt provides the highest R-value of any batt insulation on the market today.
Fatt Batt insulation is 15 inches thick and installs in an easy, one-step application. Available faced and unfaced, Fatt Batt allows builders, contractors and homeowners to reach R-49 without having to lay two separate batts on top of each other or add loose-fill insulation on top of batts.
“Fatt Batt fills a valuable demand as more builders and homeowners seek to protect their pocketbooks from rising energy costs,” said Teri Watson, vice president of marketing for Guardian Building Products. “Guardian is the first to ring this robust product to market. In addition to eliminating the need for installing multiple thicknesses of insulation, Fatt Batt is easy to install.” “Homeowners want their attics and ceilings maximized when it comes to nsulation,” said Watson. “Every insulation zone recommends R-49 in the ceiling. With Fatt Batt, homeowners can get to R-49 with just one batt, or they an add it to their existing insulation.”
