This practice covers procedures for the installation of mineral fiber batt and blanket thermal insulation in ceilings, attics, floors, and walls of new or existing housing and other light frame construction.
This practice covers the installation process from pre-installation inspection through post-installation inspection. It does not cover the production of the insulation materials.
This practice is not intended to replace manufacturers' installation instructions, but it shall be used in conjunction with such instructions. This practice is not intended to supersede local, state, or federal codes.
This practice assumes that the installer possesses a working knowledge of applicable codes and regulations, safety practices, tools, equipment, and methods necessary for the installation of thermal insulation materials. It also assumes that the installer understands the fundamentals of construction that affect the installation of insulation.
