The BIBS system with OPTIMA will not settle or separate. That means the insulation will maintain its thermal efficiency for the life of the home.

The BIBS system with OPTIMA is manufactured by CertainTeed, a company committed to sustainable building practices and a member of the United States Green Building Council (USGBC). The product is formaldehyde-free and is GREENGUARD® Gold Certified for superior indoor air quality. OPTIMA improves energy efficiency and reduces energy consumption. It is also LEED® eligible, as are a number of other CertainTeed insulation products. You can earn credits under LEED and similar green building rating systems.

CertainTeed was the first insulation manufacturer to earn the Energy Star® Partner of the Year award. In 2014, we achieved this distinction for a sixth consecutive year, earning the highest honor of Sustained Excellence.

Protect your homes with the BIBS system featuring OPTIMA from CertainTeed. With its seamless installation, the BIBS system with OPTIMA provides outstanding thermal efficiency that can pay dividends throughout the life of a home and differentiate you in your market. With the BIBS system, OPTIMA is blown behind special BIBS system fabric manufactured for CertainTeed. Both the OPTIMA insulation and fabric were specifically designed for closed cavity applications.

With the most Rs per inch, the BIBS system with OPTIMA provides the highest R-Value possible in typical sidewall applications. When installed at recommended density levels, it yields an R-15 in 2″ x 4″ construction and an R-23 in 2″ x 6″ construction.

What separates the BIBS system with OPTIMA from other insulation systems is its custom-fit seamless thermal blanket and outstanding thermal performance in irregular-shaped cavities and around obstructions.

Tests show that even a small gap in an insulated cavity can cause a substantial increase in heating or cooling costs. The BIBS system with OPTIMA makes it easier for installers to provide a superior insulation job with no voids around wires, electrical boxes and pipes. Even odd-sized framing assemblies are not a problem. With OPTIMA, there’s no cutting or fitting. The absence of voids means you are assured of full R-value for a superior finished job and exceptional thermal efficiency. The BIBS system with OPTIMA provides a continuous thermal barrier around water pipes and delivers outstanding acoustic control. The system completely surrounds electrical boxes to help prevent costly drafts and cold spots.
