After going to Home Depot, going back and for because I could not fit everything in my car, returning a door that I thought it was big, Home Depot guy told me that I can cut it, bring the door back and just realize that I might bought the wrong batch of Roxul insulation.
I don't see where the safe n sound in the cover, but I check on they only have one Roxul type. Can you guy please tell me that this is the same as Safe n sound.

I don't see 16" batch of safe n sound. I only see 24". I just bought this for my ceiling and my ceiling is 16". I guess I can use this for my ceiling and the walls I use the 24" because I'm doing the wall framing 24" on center.

Safe n Sound is an acoustical batt.

ComfortBatt is an insulating batt (that's why it has R-15).

I haven't seen any acoustical data for the ComfortBatt, so it's difficult to say how it performs.

However, I did get my SnS at Home Depot.


edit: if this is to be drywalled over, pink fluffy will work.
