Helpful Hint: Did you know that a single
continuous vapor retarder is a more effective vapor retarder than
individual kraft faced batt's? It also requires less labor!
UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation are a friction fit product. This
means that they are slightly oversized for standard wall cavities. To
install, merely insert the batt between the studding and tuck it in to
ensure a tight fit. Approximate 30% of the batt's in each bag of
UltraTouch are perforated for easy tearing to fit "off-size" cavities.
Your piece of insulation should be approx. 0.5" wider and longer than
the actual cavity.
UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation can be layered to achieve higher
R-Values in ceiling applications. It is best to alternate the direction
of the batt's in each layer. UltraTouch can be secured to the joists
using either wire or a mesh. This will ensure the batt's remain in place

UltraTouch™ Denim Insulation is an effective option for
insulating floors and crawlspaces as well. The insulation should be
secured to floor joists or crawl space cavities in the same manner as
ceiling applications, using either a mesh or wire support system. For
crawlspaces specifically, a system of vapor barriers is recommended. The
bare ground should be covered with a barrier as well as applied to the
cavities before the insulation is installed (facing the warm side of the
