Batt insulation

1. Insulation, usually of fiberglass or mineral wool and often faced with paper, typically installed between studs in walls and between joists in ceiling cavities. Correct installation is crucial to performance.
2. Loosely packed fibrous insulation more than 1 inch thick; types of fiber include fiberglass and wood.

A flexible blanket-type thermal insulation, commonly used as insulation between studs or joists in frame construction; also used as an acoustical material or a component in sound-insulating construction. Usually made from rock, slag, or glass fibers. Sometimes has a vapor barrier on one side or is entirely enclosed in paper with a vapor barrier on one side. Nominally 16 (40.6 cm) or 24 in. (61 cm) wide, and approx. 1 to 6 in. (2.5 to 15 cm) thick.
