Moisture is the enemy of a healthy home – it can lead to mold growth, health issues and even structural damage. SMARTBATT insulation with MoistureSense™ Technology knows that – you need to know that too.
SMARTBATT is the first and only insulation that helps protect your family and your home from moisture’s damaging effects. If you’re planning or have already started to remodel, renovate or build a home, you need to know about – and ask for – SMARTBATT.
Find out what makes it so smart.

Moisture management
Moisture will migrate into your walls. It’s unavoidable. Inside your walls, where you can’t see it happening, mold and mildew problems can start. Traditional vapor barriers intended to help control moisture can actually trap it inside your walls, creating a breeding ground for nastiness. SMARTBATT doesn’t.
When the humidity outside is low, SMARTBATT’s facing remains moisture tight to prevent the moisture generated by normal activities within your home, such as cooking, bathing and laundry, from seeping into your walls. When the humidity is high, it opens up to allow the moisture inside the walls to escape into the conditioned environment of your home.

For a healthier family
Mold and mildew can have a significant impact on the quality of the air inside your home – the air your family breathes every day. When mold spores make their way into your home, they can trigger asthma and allergic reactions, including eye irritation, runny noses, coughs and other respiratory symptoms. With SMARTBATT, you help reduce the risk of mold growth in your home and the risk of potentially serious health issues for those living in it.

For a healthier home
Persistent moisture inside your walls can cause wood framing to rot. With outstanding drying capabilities along with its MoistureSense facing, SMARTBATT can help reduce the risk of expensive structural damage to your home.

How SMARTBATT works to protect your home and family
At the core of SMARTBATT is a sustainable fiberglass wool engineered for superior drying capabilities along with thermal resistance (measured by R-value) and noise reduction. Unlike traditional polyethylene vapor barriers and kraft facings, the SMARTBATT MoistureSense facing is a smart vapor retarder – its permeability adjusts according to the humidity inside your walls.
MemBrain™ – The Smart Vapor Retarder and Air Barrier Film
There’s a smart, MoistureSense solution even if you’re using unfaced or blow-in insulation. Installing MemBrain along with either adds both continuous air tightness and adaptable moisture protection.
