About :

With ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND® insulation, creating a quiet oasis in your own home has never been easier. Or, if you'd like to make a lot of racket, our home insulation product lets you savour noise without fear of disrupting your family, housemates, or neighbors.

Our soundproof insulation product is ideal for media and music studios, keeping a tranquil library or staying productive in your home office. There's no better time to install our soundproof insulation than when you're renovating your home, basement, or any other room in your house.

R SAFE'n'SOUND is perfect for ceiling insulation, interior wall insulation and floor insulation. It is effective in any room, but works particularly well when used for:

• Bedroom insulation
• Home Office insulation
• Library insulation
• Bathroom insulation
• Basement insulation
• Home Theatre insulation
• Music Studio insulation
• Furnace room insulation
• Laundry insulation
• Attic Insulation

So, what sets our product apart from the competition?

For starters, it has superior sound absorption qualities, especially with low frequency bass ranges.

Secondly, our product is is made of stone, meaning its non-combustible and fire resistant. If a fire were to occur, stone wool insulation may slows the spread of fire.

ROXUL's SAFE'n'SOUND® is also chemically inert and water repellant, preventing damage caused by moisture, such as mildew, mold, fungi or bacteria. By contrast, many traditional and alternative insulation materials unintentionally encourage and promote the growth of mildew. Mildew and other water damage can diminish the insulation performance while creating a lingering health hazard that may get worse over time.

Finally, ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND is environmentally friendly. This acoustic insulation product is created with natural basalt rock and slag- a by-product from the steel refining industry. This substance would otherwise be sent straight to the landfill.

Our credentials have even been recognized on a national scale! We are the recipient of GreenGuard's most stringent certification for air quality. We're also a member of the Canada Green Building Council (CaGBC), and the energy-efficient insulation products we produce give us the privilege of being an ambassador for environmental responsibility.

For the industry-leading home insulation product, choose ROXUL SAFE'n'SOUND today!

Generally a good video but a little light on the details. How do you put the Safe-N-Sound around the cross-bracing? Cut it to fit? Compress? Around Pot lights? Other impediments? If you want to use the vibration dampening channels what would you do about pot light fixtures that are already set up for 1/2 inch drywall? Does Safe-N-Sound have insulation value? I imagine it does. What is the R value? I know it's not made for insulation specifically but since it's made out of the same material as the insulation it must insulate to some degree. Do the pot lights have to be IC rated when using Safe-N-Sound? BTW, I love your product. I've re-insulated my whole home with your Rockwool goodness. Wouldn't use anything else.

Why wouldn't a 1x2 pine work as well as metal strips? Metal is a better conductor of sound than wood, correct? A rubber grommet between the joist and 1x2 would also help I'd think.

So what is so special about your resilient channel? Looks just like a regular steel batton???

You skipped a crucial step. The sheetrock must NOT, not EVER touch any stud or joist wood. That includes the edges and the vertical studs. Leave a 1/4” gap at the edges and fill with caulk. If the sheetrock touches wood, even on the edges, it defeats the channel strip effectiveness. The actor failed to do that here. Keep the edges clear of wood, then filled with caulk, then float and tape as normal.

Other than that one complaint about the video, I have to say that this system works! I have three basement units in my building, and I never ever have complaints about sound. Hardwood floors above, dogs, kids, loud music—no problem. In fact, you could scream at the top of your lungs, and nobody would hear you. Not sure that’s such a good thing, but...


This works. It is also cost effective to do retroactively, if you find yourself trapped in a unit with bad sound issues from above. If you like your apartment and have a good deal on rent, redoing Sheetrock, insulation, etc yourself can be a good solution if you’d like to stay a few years.

Even the best acoustic floor +wall +duct (outside wrapping) insulation won't help to stop the noise emission to upper floors via air transmission of the duct system. I still find no effective (& thin) solution for INSIDE acoustic wrapping of ducts. ANY IDEA?

Do you have to use those thin metal straps when putting it between the rafters or just snug and then it will be help up in place once the drywall is installed?

Beverly Meteyer . 2018-07-22
Thank you. This was a really good video. I am moving my upstairs laundry room into an open space above my living room/entry. I need the drywall to line up/be level with the existing downstairs ceiling. It looks like those vibration channels that you put up on the joists add a bit of thickness which I will need to account for. How thick are those?
Thank you.

Roxul is a wonderful product, I took a small piece of it home from Lowes and I was able to melt a penny in the palm of my hand using only the little piece of Roxul as protection. I've put a torch to it and it doesn't burn, it will scorch and dissipate but trying the same thing with closed cell foam or fiber glass will get you hurt. So for my money, knowing that I've not only got great sound dampening but that I've also protected each and every room in my house with the equivalent of a fire resistant wall is great peace of mind. Just think the fumes from burning Spray foam in a house fire will kill you before the flames ever get to you, so no thanks and fiber glass has been shown to be almost as bad for your health as asbestos the only reason why it's not illegal is because it's cheap and grandfathered in and if installed wrong it loses most all effectiveness.

I was unfortunate to buy a condo with zero insulation between units. It’s a total nightmare to live here. When a neighbor upstairs goes at night to the bathroom, it feels like she is in my apartment. Total nightmare and sleep deprivation. I am getting a very serious mental and health issues cause idiots builders didn’t build the place correctly.

Does the acoustic caulking work as fireproofing? I assume fireproofing caulk has acoustic deadening properties.

we used your product in the ceiling and under the house during renovations, and we are very impressed. Rarely run the AC, and no longer hear the squirrels running on the roof. I refuse to go back to fiberglass insulation. Even our handyman is switching to Roxul. My only complaint is that I have to special order it from Lowes or Home Depot, and they don't have access to all your products. Wish they would carry it in store. Even some of the employees are not familiar with what Roxul is, said they never used it.
