Batts consist of fibres of glass or steel mill slag spun together with a binding agent into a blanket-like strip of convenient length and width to fit standard framing spaces and in a range of thicknesses. This type is called "friction fit" because it is made slightly wider than the standard stud space so that it is held in place by friction.

It is often necessary to use insulation batts in cavities which are not as deep as the batts are thick. For example, 6 in. (150 mm) batts might be used in a wall built with 2 x 6 in. (38 x 140 mm) studs. The resulting compression has an insignificant impact on the thermal resistance of the batts.
