open back cloud question

In the process of hanging my clouds and was wondering if its okay to have an open back on these using r13? I have open backs on my wall pannels but they are flush with the wall.
Any other suggestions would be appreciated!

Thank you for your prompt response.
This is of course referring to the fact there is fiberglass exposed, and dont want it constantly flying around the room with fans ect.

As Ethan says there is nothing wrong with an open back but what most people do is cover it with a cheap but breathable material a cheap cotton would do

Keep in mind that most ceiling tiles have a facing on the front and open on the back. Basically it is not a problem with them open on the back.

Thanks gentlemen.
I know an open back design is fine, I was just concerned using the pink itchy stuff as its at fan height and thought it would blow around all over. Its fine, sounds fantastic!! Clouds are probably the most noticeable improvement in treatment I have made. Over drums it is just a necessity

Where gravity contains the dust (the material itself blocking it), it's usually okay to use a simple breathable fabric. If in doubt, use two layers, just make sure it is breathable.
