Overview


CFAB™ Cellulose Panels

Cellulose-Based Acoustical & Thermal Panels

  • Controls and deadens sound

  • Reduces airborne sound transmission

  • Blocks outdoor noise

  • Easy to handle and install - No special equipment required

  • Class A fire rating

  • Resists mold growth

  • Made from renewable and recycled fibers

Innovative CFAB panels are made with a cellulose-based material, the first of its kind in our industry. Consisting of 65-75% recycled content, CFAB cellulose products represent an environmentally-responsible solution for acoustical materials. This cellulose soundproofing insulation is an inventive, yet sustainable alternative to traditional fiberglass and synthetic acoustical or thermal panels, which are unreliable performers in a variety of different applications.

Product Specs

Applications:

CFAB cellulose panels can be used in any area that calls for acoustical or thermal treatment. This cellulose soundproofing insulation can be covered with fabric or other decorative material. Typical applications include, but are not limited to, insulation components, office panels, acoustic panels/inserts, and any molded, flat panel or lofted parts.

Sizes:

CFAB cellulose panels are available in 2′×4′, 4′×4′, and 4′×8′ panels. These cellulose soundproofing insulation panels are available in ½″, 1″, or 2″ thickness.

8lb pcf - ½″ Thickness & 1″ Thickness

Green Qualities

Made from a combination of recycled and renewable fibers, CFAB cellulose soundproofing insulation products are environmentally responsible and sustainable. Most CFAB cellulose products are completely recyclable and no scrap is produced during the manufacturing process or installation of the material. In addition, they are manufactured using a greener process by reducing energy use and air pollution. Through an innovative manufacturing process, ecocell is produced as a cellulose-based product made primarily from post-consumer, post-industrial paper using recycled newspaper as the main raw material.

Acoustical Performance

The open design and density of CFAB cellulose soundproofing and insulation panels increases sound absorption to control and deaden sound. CFAB cellulose acoustical panels achieve high Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) ratings based on the density specified. The chart below represents NRC ratings using standard weight material. Sound Transmission Classification (STC) ratings have been done for specific applications. STC values are determined for all of the construction materials in an assembly. The STC ratings exceed the values attained with commonly used acoustical materials.

Product Safety

Homeowners are concerned with safety, especially when it comes to their homes and families. CFAB cellulose panels have a Class A fire rating. They do not contain any harmful airborne particles and do not itch or irritate skin like fiberglass insulation. Easy to handle and soft to the touch, CFAB cellulose panels can be left exposed, painted or covered with drywall. To protect against mold growth, CFAB cellulose panels contain an EPA-registered fungicide.
