December 2018 Toolbox
The November Toolbox includes a selection of great walls and ceilings products, including insulation, work boots, and more.
The JM Formaldehyde-free Cavity-SHIELD is a NFPA 13 compliant, fiberglass batt insulation for use in the concealed spaces of multifamily buildings. The fiberglass batts are a noncombustible insulation product made up of long, resilient glass fibers bonded with thermosetting resin. The batts are designed for use in concealed spaces between floors, serving as a passive fire solution for limiting potential flame spread between and through floors.
- Batts are friction-fit into cavities, without the need for special equipment, reducing the time and resources required for installers to complete the job
- Available in a wide range of thicknesses, the product can be easily cut with a standard utility knife to fit in any cavity size
- The insulation is another option for construction professionals looking for passive fire protection and a cost-effective alternative to blow in or sprinklers in the interstitial space
- Fiberglass has proven to withstand the life of the project and will not rot, mildew or deteriorate
- The insulation offers the same acoustical reduction benefits between floors when compared to other JM insulation products

The mini mixing paddle is a mixing paddle that can be used in all drills, and guns due to its hex head shaft with a chamfered ball groove. The tool has a built-in paint can opener built right into the shaft. This makes it a multi-use tool that keeps the tool bag light. The paddles have a durable nylon coating that cleans up easily.
