I am looking to build some acoustic panels and a small sound booth. At first I thought about buying Owens Corning but am unsure about how safe it is. I would be installing them in my home so my housemates and I would be around them 24/7. As for the booth, well, I would be locked in there for long periods of time. I have thought about getting Acoustical cotton batts instead so that I don't have to worry about health risks.
If I were to get Owens Corning do I need to wrap it in a special material? One of my instructors said he wrapped his in burlap but would this be sufficient if I were to get it for my small house?
Are cotton panels just as good or better?
Thanks in advance,
