Ethan,

There are post asking where to buy O.C. 703 AND 705 rigid insulation.

For those who are local and not so local a good source for rigid insulation is the E.J. Davis Co.located in North Haven CT. Call for availability and directions # (203)239-5391

Also Kamco in Wallingford Conn. supposedly can get Certain Teed that is equivalentto the O.C. but they had to order it but it seemed that they did not want to be bothered which soured me.

Maybe you could start a new post people can list sources where they found rigid insulation and brand.

Randall,

> Maybe you could start a new post people can list sources where they found rigid insulation and brand. <

I did one better and made your post a "sticky" that stays at the top. I edited it only to change the thread title. Folks, as you find local sources, add them as new posts here. Best is if you list your state and/or town near the top in bold to make it easy for people pick out as they scroll through the posts.

Central Kentucky area, I just went to a Carter Lumber and they special ordered some 703 for me. Thing is, I had to buy 24 pieces, but I only needed 20 for my room's absorbers. I used the other four pieces just framed with a hardwood back and grill cloth front. Mounted them on stands with coaster wheels so I can position the 2' by 4' absorbers or reflecters (front or back) anywhere I want.

IRIC, many have tried... Most have settled for Rockwool as it is more easily available in the UK than rigid fiberglass.

I wouldn't mind shipping it but the cost would be ridiculous I suspect. I'm having a hard time even getting decent prices into Canada.

Just as a heads up...

I've been told by my supplier that Owens Corning is planning a 9% price hike sometime in November of this year.

As an example, unless you live in the boonies or way out on the West Coast, I can get 1" to you for just a little over $1/SF including shipping. 2" is about $1.80/SF including shipping. This assumes $25 shipping for a box of 6 pcs of 2" or 12 pcs of 1". Many times it's less.

Some places will sell the material cheaper but jack up the shipping prices to look good on price searches.

Does anybody know where I can find Mineral Wool in the S.F. bay area?

SPI has Roxul for .70 (2") a square foot, but it's not even 8 pcf. And it's loose rockwool. They're not even willing to order 8 pcf for me.

I don't get it. It seems like Texas and Virginia and everywhere else has it coming out of their ears and I can't find anything. I've been calling and surfing for hours.

I'm hearing of people getting the 8 pcf stuff for .59 a square foot in Portland, and .39 a square foot in Oklahoma.

I'm willing to drive to the valley if there's somewhere over there that has it.

Anybody?

There is a local supplier, Energy Innovations , located on Fox St downtown. They sell UltraTouch Acoustic Cotton at very impressive prices, about half of what I recently paid online. Their main focus is environmentally-friendly construction materials, I can't imagine they get many calls from recording studios.

This material specs out fantastically, its absorption coefficient is pretty close to 1.0 over most of the audio spectrum. It is available in 5.5" and 3.5" thicknesses, in both 16" and 24" wide batts.

This stuff is pretty far from rigid, but it works very well as a sound absorber. I've made broadband absorbers and gobos out of it and I'm thrilled with the performance so far. Though I'd be very curious to see how it performs side-by-side with rockwool and rigid fiberglass.

Anyway, this place in Portland sells packages of 5.5" thick batts, 24" wide, 94" long in packs of 4 (63 sq ft) for $60. The same product, 16" wide in a 5-pack (52 sq ft) is $49.

In terms of DIY acoustic treatments on a budget, I think this stuff is a STRONG contender. I think the 16" wide batts placed between ceiling joists and covered with cloth is a nontoxic, huge performer for someone building a basement studio, at a price not much more than normal fiberglass insulation, with better specs and non of the toxic fiberglass handling stuff.

VERY cool, though admittedly it's a bit disconcerting to realize that for what I spent just a few weeks ago having this stuff shipped out, I could have picked up more than twice as much cotton from a local, green, environmentally conscious business.

I have found a place in Little Rock, Arkansas that has a surplus of Knauf 160, 2" ridgid F/G insulation. It is Johnson Products LLC,[formaly Morrow Insulation], 6209 MurraY ST. PHONE 501-568-5496, ask for "Tim" I paid $54.00 a bundle of 32 pieces of 2"x24"x48" sheets. Knauf has an accoustical chart for their insulation on their web site.

This forum has been very useful to me in building my studio in a 100 year old farm house. Thanks Ethan.

Here's the Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania area source for the Owens Corning 700 series products.

George V. Hamilton Co.

They stock 703, 703FRK, 705, 705FRK and most likely more. They also have the Johns Manville IIG Min Wool 1200 products. Very nice people to deal with and good pricing.

As of April 2006:
703 $0.70 sq. ft.
703FRK $1.01 sq. ft.
705 $1.23 sq. ft.
705FRK $1.55 sq. ft.

This was all 2" in 2'X4' squares.

East Coast, Virginia specifically, if you need a large amount, this is the place to go. Please note, if you're buying 1-2 boxes, better to look elsewhere, because they are a volume dealer and they only ship point-to-point.

I just picked up 2 bundles of 2" unfaced Johns Manville at EJ Bartells in Seattle (http://www.ejbartells.com/). Each bundle has 9 2x4 sheets, and I think the total for both was about 120.00. I'm going to pick up some burlap today! Very excited....

Hi there!

New to the forum, but an Ethan´s Fan!
Thanks for clearing up all my disturbed thought about acoustics, heh!

Somebody can give me just ANY tip on where to get something similar to the #705 rigd fiberglass down here in Buenos Aires, ARGENTINA? International shipping would be really high, right?

Thanks in advance

CURRENT SPI PRICES and
DALLAS/FORTWORTH

SPI [800.788.7764 nationally, 214.956.7781 Dallas, FTW #?] carries OC, Fibrex etc. I just picked up a lot of Fibrex 8 lb. 2" at $.59/sq.ft. Not sure their exact OC price but the Tulsa prices per sqare foot for 2" were:

-Fibrex 1280 (8 lb.) $.49
-OC 703 (3 lb.) $.84
-OC 705 (6 lb.) $1.52.

So Dallas prices are a little higher. In this case, the 705 costs 3x as much as the denser Fibrex even though the Fibrex handles lows better (see bob golds coefficients).

There are contacts to all the local insulation distributors nationwide. Also a good source for info. The fiberglass & mineral wool boards should be common stock for any insulation supplier.

I'll let the link to this foam vendor stand for now. But this thread is for local sources of rigid fiberglass and equivalent materials, not foam. Finding mail order foam is not difficult, and there's much less need for a link to that here. Also, it's difficult to recommend any vendor that claims their foam offers diffusion, since that shows they don't even understand what it does.

Axeman, do you have any direct experience with this vendor?

Ya I bought some from them
they have some really good prices and got it out to me fast. I plan on buying some more from them soon

I really was not sure of exactly what types of materials these guys was looking for.

but to be perfectly honest you will probably find just as good of a deal at your local Lowes or Home Depot for a lot of this rigid foam and fiberboard insulation I am assuming that the folks are looking to find materials for sound isolating and sound deflection pannells for a DIY home studio Project.

I would also mention that roofing foam is very rigid and flame retardant whch works excellemt for sound proofing that very easy to work with for making shaped wall corners a and overhead deflection panels.
it comes in several thicknesses and can be glued together with spray adhesive to get the desired shapes someone may need to make and can also be painted.
you can find it at most building materials suppliers as well.

4stringaxeman,

There is no such animal as sound proofing foam - it doesn't work - and it doesn't exist - and any company that is advertising their material in that manner either doesn't have a clue or is deliberately misleading their clients.

Roofing foam is no exception -

by the way - whose roofing foam are you talking about? I know that the firestone foam made for roof insulation is combustible - so if you're speaking about a particular maufacturer whose product is not (I am not aware of any) then you should name that manufacturer to save people from spending trying to locate someone.

Sincerely,

Rod

Try this: Knauf Rocksilk

The variant number indicates the approximate density in Kg/m3. RS100 is roughly equivalent to OC 705 in that respect.

Easier to find than OC or Rockwool and available to order from most large builders merchants.

(Somebody please let me know if it's unsuitable and I'll delete this post)

I'll second an earlier poster's recommendation of API in Roseville (N suburb of St. Paul) Minnesota. Nice folks there, and will sell small qtys down to a single piece.
$1.17/sf for 2" OC 703; $2.12/sf for 2" OC 705.

And another Twin Cities source:
Tri-Star Insulation
6095 East River Road, Fridley MN (N suburb of Minneapolis)
763-502-9977
Also good to work with for small qtys, although the smallest unit they sell is a bundle.
I got 8 pcf mineral wool for $0.62/sf.
They have Knauf rigid fiberglass board, but higher price than API.

Also read with interest an old post on ultratouch cotton insulation, did a search and found that there's a dealer only 3 miles away from me! So I will have to check out Acoustical Surfaces, Inc. The cotton looks like a good way to go; great acoustical properties, and looks like shredded blue jeans!

They carry all the OC, Roxul, etc. AND the "weighted vinyl" soundproofing sheet that Auralex sells, which the rep described as "awesome". Great location, Garland off LBJ & NW Highway. Got 12 pcs. of 703 for $119, great price.

Please note that they are primarily a wholesaler & to-the-trade resource, but the sale manager said they'd welcome small orders - they do sell to the home theater construction industry and know the business. I'd suggest you respect that, and don't get too "consumery" when you call; could put an end to a good thing. Know what you want and don't quiz 'em too much - do your research here.

Their main warehouse is in Tyler, TX, so it can take a few days to get stuff in if not in stock; mine took 24 hrs.

Roxul RHT40 four inch board list out at better than 1.0 through the 125hz to 4khz frequencies. Is there any reason to use a thinner board that does not deliver in the low range? 320 square feet is $332.12 delivered.

I found the major sites on the web and emailed a request and received a list from each which I then went through until I found what it was that I was looking for. Roxul RHT40 4inch for 97cents American a square foot. What I am interested in is there any reason to use less that 4 inch? The four inch board delivers better than 1.0 125hz through 4khz. 320 square feet for $332.13 with tax delivered.

they can get all the 703, 705, and the faced 705 at a much better price than all the online suppliers are sell it at. only down side is they dont stock it so you have to purchase 12 panels at a time because thats how OC sells it. i still got 12 two inch panels for less than the best price i was seeing 6 of the same online.

Hi All:

I just completed a pretty exhaustive search for insulation products in the Phoenix area and thought I'd post the results of my search.

The best source is Bay Insulation of AZ: 480-361-0167. Ask for George. I was referred to them by the regional OC representative. Bay sells OC 703 2' x 4' x 2" for $9.12/board. The 4" is $21.52/board. I bought 8lb 2' x 4' x 4" Rockwool panels for $6.88 each. The 2" ones go for $4.80 each. Friendly and accommodating. Even willing to deliver.

I can't help you with local suppliers, but 100mm 50Kg/m3 rock wool should work very well if you have enough of it in the right places.

Thanks Ethan !

Here, the best I've found is mineral wool 100mm 120Kg/m3 (Rockwool Rockfeu Coffrage), do you think this density is good for Basstraps ?

That's probably not too dense and should work well.

Always has enough to go around. At the time I bought these (Feb. 2011) Roger said he kept 12,000 sq. ft. on hand most of the time, unless a big project came knocking.

One box has 6 pieces of dimensions 2'x4'x2".

Cost as of February 2011: $1.10 per sq.ft. or $52.80 per box of 6. This has to be the best deal going offline.

Hope this helps!

hey all

BRISBANE, AUSTRALIA - Fletcher Insulation sold me 2400 x 1200 x 50mm sheets of 48kg/cubic meter (density) rigid fibreglass for around $51 per sheet. They come in packs of four and you can order 75mm of the same stuff. 1300 654 444 and they're at 91 Stradbroke St, Heathwood.

They also sell some vinyl faces ceiling tiles which look like great mid/high absorbers. Could be subject to minimum orders though..

Good morning Ethan, thanks so much for the advice on your web sites and all the information on what not to do to correct the lack of bass issue in my control room.
Everything you said was true and the room went from not too bad to "WOW". I went to DIY route and used roxul from ATA Acoustics. I have 3 corner traps floor to ceiling built just as you suggested. The balance of the three walls are 2" from ceiling down 44" and existing carpet from that point to the floor. It took some experimenting to figure out how to assemble the panels, cover them with burlap and install them. I used a jig to make a small hole 2 inches in from each sie of the panel and then glued a large washer to the roxul panel before I glued on the burlap with the 3M 77 adhesive. To mount the panels I used some long hex headed screws driven to the mounts at 45 degrees to the corners.
The bass is amazing and the high end is clean, clear and smooth.
As a test I invited my son in law, a concert pianist and music professor to listen to a cd, he said it was one of the clearest most natural sounding recording he had heard.
Thanks once again for the advice you have provided via the Internet.
For the first time in 30 years my listening room sounds the way it should.

UNITED STATES!

I'm in the process of building panels for my listening room and decided to use OC 705. I wasn't having much luck locating OC 705 panels locally (San Francisco Bay Area), so called Owens-Corning and discovered I could buy them through Home Depot. I stopped by the special order desk at the local Home Depot, and sure enough, they had both OC 705 and OC 705FRK on their special order pricelist. They even called their local distributor to make sure it was available.

The one downside is that the minimum order is 5 packages of 5 sheets each (25 total), but the price was right (around $20/sheet) and I figured I could always find a use for a few extra sheets of fiberglass, so I bought the minimum order (I'm glad I did). There was a slight glitch with the order (only one of the five packages showed up within the committed 10 business day lead time), but I subsequently got all my panels and of course, all's well that ends well.

Anyhow, this turned out to be a great resource - one stop at Home Depot to place the order and the second to pick it up. I'm assuming any local Home Depot in the US can order it for you.

Cheers, Vanzut

After days of researching the internet for cheapest mineral wool provider I found these guys: www.insulationshop.co in the UK. They do Knauf mineral fibre and deliver next day. I spoke with a guy on the phone and was told if you can't find desired density or thickness on the website they can order it for you for no extra cost.

I realize this thread has gone cold, but wanted to ask about the standard rigid ductwork product used to assemble "quiet" AC/Heating duct. It is referred to as simply "Ductboard"......very rigid but typically faced one side with foil fabric and the other with a fabric matrix. It may have merit and more locally common. I've found 4X10' sheets for 50 bucks. Every HVAC supplier has this stuff in 1" and 2". Just registered and welcome all input. Thanks for a great forum Ethan.

Wow......no input !! Well, talking to the wall has led me to a boatload source of 702. Although not quite "rigid" it stands up pretty much on it's own and looks to have similar absorption values to 703. Any thoughts ? Was thinking in a DA or deeper broadband absorber of 8", two of these 4" thick would do well ? Anyone ?
Thanks
