BIBS® Hybrid Performance Insulation System

An unparalleled dual-performance insulation solution for residential and commercial use

Why the BIBS® HP System?

The BIBS HP system combines the performance benefits of the original Blow-In Blanket system with spray polyurethane foam to reduce air infiltration, achieve higher R-values, control sound, eliminate settling, provide fire protection, and more.

Reduced Air Infiltration

According to Reduced Air Infiltration National Laboratory tests, BIBS HP system reduces air infiltration up to 68% over conventional batt insulation, providing more comfort in buildings of all types.

Excellent Sound Control

The BIBS HP system is a proven, premium insulation that controls the transmission of sound. It completely fills around objects inside the wall cavity, resulting in excellent sound control.

Higher Efficiency R-Values

The BIBS HP system is a high-density insulation delivers the highest R-values on the market today, maximizing energy efficiency and quickly paying for itself through energy savings and lower utility bills.

Non-Settling

The BIBS HP system will not settle when installed correctly. The unique process of placing a densely-packed blanket of fiberglass behind a dust-free fabric virtually eliminates settling.

Flammability

The BIBS HP system is naturally non-flammable. It meets ASTM C764 testing criteria for smoldering combustion and ASTM E136 for non-combustion.

Recycled Content

In addition to its energy-saving and custom-fit qualities, the BIBS HP system incorporates fiberglass blowing wool made with 25% or greater recycled content.

Improved Home Comfort

Many factors influence the comfort and air quality of your home. A continuous air barrier of both spray polyurethane foam and fiberglass blowing wool helps reduce pathways for moisture, allergens, pollutants and pests.

Certified Installation and Trusted Performance

The BIBS HP system must be installed by a certified Blow-in Blanket contractor who has been trained in the proper installation of all system components.

BIBS® HP System Application

First, a certified contractor applies polyurethane spray foam to the wall cavity to create a continuous air barrier, eliminating gaps and air leakage. Then, the proprietary BIBS HP system fabric is installed to the face of the wall cavity. Lastly, approved fiberglass blowing wool is blown into the walls, floors, attics, or ceilings. The fiberglass insulation completely fills the wall cavity around pipes, wires, and other objects inside the cavity.

R-Value Guidelines for BIBS® HP Success

The BIBS HP system is a high-performing revolutionary hybrid system that provides maximum thermal efficiency, high R-values, and a simple, clean installation.

What Is the BIBS HP System?

The BIBS HP system is a revolutionary hybrid system that combines the performance benefits of the original Blow-In Blanket system with spray polyurethane foam to achieve an unparalleled insulation solution for both residential and commercial buildings. Fiberglass blowing wool and spray polyurethane foam are two of the most effective choices for insulating a home – and when combined, reduce air infiltration and attain some of the highest R-values available today.

Simple, Clean Installation with Little Waste

The installation process is simple and like the original BIBS system. It is a clean installation with little waste. First, a certified contractor applies polyurethane spray foam to the wall cavity to create a continuous air barrier, virtually eliminating gaps and air leakage. Then, the contractor installs the proprietary BIBS system fabric to the face of the wall cavity. Lastly, approved fiberglass blowing wool is blown into the walls, floors, attics, or ceilings.

High Level of R-Value Performance

During BIBS HP system installation, fiberglass insulation completely fills the wall cavity around pipes, wires, and other objects inside the cavity to a consistent density, thus achieving a correlating R-value. This high level of insulation performance maximizes the thermal efficiency of the building envelope.
