  • Light Commercial: This full line of standard and high-density batts and blankets for wood and metal frame construction is available unfaced or with kraft, foil, or flame-rated (FSK) foil facings. Knauf QuietTherm™ Insulation can improve STC ratings in wood stud construction by 3 to 5 points and in metal stud construction by 8 to 10 points, depending on the complexity of the wall configuration and layers of insulation.
