Blow-In Blanket Systems (BIBS)
Loose Fill Fiberglass by "Optima"
How it Works
The Optima BIBS System is designed for installation in sidewalls, cathedral ceilings, floored attics and other closed cavity applications. It is pneumatically installed behind special non-woven "Optima" Fabric. It is used primarily as a residential and commercial insulation and also holds acoustical properties as well. In addition, at a high-dense pack, the BIBS system will not settle, or sag over time. As a custom-fit blanket this system sports an R-15 in 2" x 4" construction and an R-23 in 2" x 6" construction. Where studies show that even a small opening in an insulated area can cause a substantial decrease in the effective R-value of the entire area, the BIBS system will uphold a consistent R-value around all obstructions, electrical outlets, recessed lighting, etc.
Upstate Spray Foam Insulation during installation, the fabric is laid across the working area, and stapled to the stud walls. Once covered completely, each cavity is pneumatically blown full, typically at a high-dense pack. Once full, the cavities are packed flat and covered with a vapor barrier over the Optima Fabric.
The BIBS system can be installed into new construction only or existing homes with open and exposed stud cavities. For existing homes or buildings, we offer a similar pneumatically blown fiberglass and Cellulose. More information on our retro-fit applications can be found here.
The BIB system is a thermally efficient, cost-effective insulation. While not fulfilling all the properties that our Spray Foam applications do, the BIB application is however, guaranteed for the life of a home yielding a Limited Lifetime Warranty. It is non-combustible, non-corrosive, and will not absorb moisture. The BIB system provides exceptional thermal efficiency while being installed only by certified contractors in accordance of the standards set forth by the manufacturer.
