Pink® Batts® Classic is our lower R-value range of insulation, designed to achieve minimum building code requirements. For higher R-values go for our premium Pink® Batts® Ultra range.
Different insulation products have different R-values. Some materials insulate better than others and others need increased thickness in order to reach the same R-value as a better insulating material.
