The Original BIBS® for Canadian Applications

A proven, state-of-the-art insulation system utilizing specially manufactured fiberglass blowing wool behind a proprietary fabric

Why BIBS® System Canada?

Unlike other insulation systems that may leave voids or gaps, the BIBS system Canada creates the perfect fit, creating R-value effectiveness that meets building standards for many uses and is also non-flammable.

R-Value Effectiveness

The BIBS system Canada forms a seamless blanket of dense-packed fiberglass insulation that completely fills around pipes, wires and other objects inside the cavity to maximize thermal efficiency and eliminate costly voids and air gaps. This process helps provide you with the highest, full cavity effective R-values attainable today.

Flexible for Any Use

The BIBS system Canada is a premium insulation that fits any blueprint, any design configuration, and any size home or commercial building project. The BIBS system Canada can be used in retrofit and new construction (both wood and steel frame), residential, industrial, agriculture and commercial buildings, including ceilings and floors, or wherever acoustic control is needed.

Non-Flammable and Non-Combustible

The BIBS system Canada is naturally non-flammable. The system utilizes a proprietary fabric, plus tested and approved fiberglass blowing wools that meet ASTM C764 Testing Criteria for smoldering combustion and ASTM E 136 for non-combustion.

Meets Building Standards

The BIBS system Canada meets the following standards: International Building Code, International Residential Code, and International Energy Conservation Code. The BIBS system Canada has been evaluated and accepted by the Canadian Construction Materials Centre CCMC #13198R & 11790R.

BIBS® System Canada Availability and Installation

Placing a measured density of fiberglass blowing wool behind the BIBS system fabric creates a uniform R-value throughout the entire cavity. The amount of insulation you need depends mainly on the climate you live and local codes, and it must be installed properly to achieve the marked R-value.

Uniform R-Value Across Applications

The BIBS system Canada creates a seamless blanket of insulation that perfectly fits to any size shape. The application of placing a measured density of fiberglass blowing wool behind the BIBS system proprietary fabric creates a uniform R-value throughout the entire cavity and helps control air infiltration.

This chart shows the R-values attainable in Canada with BIBS versus Batts given framing and insulation densities. When conventional batts are installed in non-standard cavities or in irregular framing, batts must be cut-to-fit for these areas. This often creates gaps that may reduce the efficiency of the building and allow heat or air conditioning to escape. For these reasons, the BIBS system Canada represents a formidable offering when compared to traditional insulation products.
