Big Burn Insulation Fire Test Video Thumbnail
Here is another video that demonstrates the characteristic differences between cellulose insulation and fiberglass insulation.

Titled “The Big Burn” by its producers, the video is not a true scientific controlled study like the burn test videos sponsored by CIMA.  However, it does a good job of demonstrating how different cellulose insulation and fiberglass insulation react and manage flames in a fire.  Cellulose insulation in this demonstration clearly stops the direct high heat source from damaging the building wall members.

Watch the short video now. See other insulation fire related videos on the CIMA YouTube Channel.
