CarpetCycle Introduces Quiet-Tech Insulation Batts for Acoustic and Thermal insulation in Commercial Buildings’ Walls and Ceilings

Quiet-Tech insulation is made with a blend of recycled carpet, cotton and PET fibers, and qualifies as a Double Green product

Dalton, Ga. – December 7, 2016 – The Carpet America Recovery Effort (CARE) and CarpetCycle recyclers are pleased to announce the introduction of Quiet-Tech insulation, offering superior sound absorption and noise reduction between wall- separated workspaces.

Quiet-Tech insulation batts contain 85% recycled materials from recycled carpet, cotton and PET fibers. Quiet-Tech insulation is UL Greenguard gold certified, contains no formaldehyde or fiberglass, and can be recycled or reused at the end of its useful life.

Quiet-Tech insulation is a Double Green product. Double Green products contain recycled California post-consumer carpet material, plus at least one other post-consumer recycled material. Learn more at

“Quiet-Tech insulation is commercially available and has been installed in projects in New York and New Jersey,” states Sean Ragiel, president of CarpetCycle. “Architects, acoustic consultants, engineers and business owners are very satisfied with Quiet-Tech insulation’s ease of handling, and its acoustic and thermal performance.”

“We are excited to see this innovative building product launched in the commercial market,” notes Bob Peoples, Executive Director of CARE. “Quiet-Tech insulation is an excellent example of how post-consumer carpet is recycled back into high performance products that are economically, environmentally and socially sustainable.”
