Thermafiber® SAFB (Sound Attenuation Fire Blankets)

Description:

THERMAFIBER Sound Attenuation Fire Blankets (SAFB) are mineral wool batts designed to stop sound, save energy, and provide life saving fire protection. These products are noncombustible, moisture-resistant, noncorrosive, nondeteriorating, mildew-proof and vermin- proof. Thermafiber® SAFBs provide acoustical control, thermal insulation, and fire protection in many different UL fire rated wall and floor-ceiling assemblies. SAFBs resist temperatures over 2000ºF. SAFBs add STCs to wall and floor-ceiling assemblies. SAFBs can be installed in both steel stud and wood stud construction. See Thermafiber’s SAFB Brochure (TF885) for more detail on STC and fire ratings for multiple wall and floor-ceiling assemblies.

  • Standard SAFB
  • Creased SAFB – Made 1” wider than standard stud spacing to bow in the stud cavity for increased sound absorption.

Installation:

  • Interior Stud Cavity – Friction fit SAFBs securely between studs. Butt ends of blankets closely together and fill all voids.
  • Creased SAFB – Bow the blankets slightly to fit into stud cavity. Slit the blankets vertically 1” deep with a utility knife.
  • Floor-Ceiling – Friction fit SAFBs securely between floor joists.
  • Ceiling Overlayment – Lay SAFBs over ceiling panels extending 48” beyond all partitions. Tightly fit around all hangers, obstructions, and penetrations.
