The Owens Corning products used in VISION House Aspen:
Owens Corning QuietZone
Noise has been shown to be a contributing factor to daily stress as the clamor mounts from increasing and competing sources (TVs, computers, video games, high ceilings and hard surfaces that can create echoes) within the home. Owens Corning QuietZone products are designed to provide customized Volume Control For The Home®, making dwellings more livable. QuietZone products maintain original acoustic properties over time and meet all applicable building codes and standards.
- QuietZone® Acoustic Batts are installed between interior walls, floors and ceilings and help muffle noises, taking the edge off sounds (by up to 30 percent) and increasing acoustical privacy between rooms.
- QuietZone® Acoustic Floor Mat installs between the wall, subfloor and floor underlayment and reduces sound vibrations and impact noises through the floor thus isolating the sound within the room.
Owens Corning PINKWRAP
Owens Corning PINKWRAP® housewrap is engineered to stop air infiltration while allowing excess moisture to be “exhaled” so it doesn’t build up in walls. Designed with installation efficiency in mind, PINKWRAP offers unparalleled ease of use with a high tensile strength that makes it resistant to rips and tears that could compromise the seal of the envelope. PINKWRAP is lightweight, easy to unroll and cut, and its translucency makes it easier to see where to nail and staple.
Owens Corning ProPINK Rigid Foam Insulation
Owens Corning PROPINK® insulating sheathing is a premium insulating panel used to construct the exterior walls of the home. It features a tough laminated skin on both sides of its rigid foam core that is extremely resistant to damage. Exterior walls made of PROPINK deliver considerably greater R-value than plywood, OSB or other non-insulation products.
