What Is Cotton Armor Insulation?

Cotton Armor, by Applegate Insulation, is produced from 85% recycled denim and cotton fibers. Cotton Armor is an environmentally safe insulation that provides excellent Sound Transmission Class (STC) ratings.

Cotton Armor’s proprietary fiber layering makes it easier to properly size and install than other insulation. Installers and building operators appreciate the advantages of reduced installation time and increased acoustical performance. Because Cotton Armor is made from recycled denim and cotton fibers it is as comfortable, non-irritating and as safe to use as your favorite pair of jeans. Additionally, it is sized for 16″ o.c. and 24″ o.c. residential and commercial framing, which combined with its rigidity and rebound helps reduce compression, gaps and voids that can significantly decrease acoustical and thermal performance.

Cotton Armor Sound Control

  • An R-13 Cotton Armor insulated wall has a 52 STC
  • An R-19 Cotton Armor insulated wall has a 53 STC
  • An R-21 Cotton Armor insulated wall has a 54 STC

An R-13 Cotton Armor blanket insulated wall has an STC of 52, which is equivalent to 12 inches of cement. Comparable steel stud walls insulated with fiberglass batts have STC ratings typically in the forties, while a typical 2″ x 4″ gypsum wood stud wall without insulation has an STC of 33 – 35. Cotton Armor has naturally high STC ratings and is environmentally safe, affordable, energy efficient, easy to install and safe to handle. These factors make it ideal for churches, hospitals, hotels, schools, homes, offices, commercial and residential buildings in which sound control and the ability to hear others is critical for healthy living.

How Much Does Cotton Armor Insulation Cost?

The price for installing Cotton Armor installation depends on the total square footage of insulation to be installed, and the depth of installation. If you want the healthiest insulation, with superior sound control, then Cotton Armor installed by Diversified Energy should be your choice.

Cotton Armor can be used in tandem with our other insulation products. Many clients opt to have Cotton Armor installed on interior walls and floors for sound control, then have stabilized cellulose or spray foam insulation installed in the exterior walls.
