AbstractAs in horizontal applications, the thickness and safety aspects of cellulose fibre insulation (CFI) also apply to wall applications. In the latter case, however, failure to allow for settlement will not decrease thickness but will leave uninsulated gaps at the tops of the stud spaces. As it is impossible to see the CFI flowing into the spaces, a good installation depends on proper machine adjustment and installation technique. This paper reports on the findings of a study conducted to determine the effects of application technique on installation quality.
