Acoustic foam and materials improve the acoustic environment within a room or space, by providing sound absorption. This allows for reverberation control without the expense of a finish that provides an aesthetic finish.
These materials are generally utilized in an industrial or commercial application where functionality is preferred, such as plant rooms and under or behind other features.
Acoustic foams can be protected from the ingress of oil, water and grease etc. by adding protective layers to the foam with minimal effect on performance.
These materials can be fixed in place using a number of different options. These options include self adhesive tape, glue, stick pins etc
Uses for acoustic foam and materials
Manufactured from a range of different materials to a specific length and size to ensure the frequency cut-off meets the demands required of it.
Cut into a triangular shape and placed at 90° to each other ensures that sound cannot reflect from one surface to another without instancing on an absorptive surface first.
Known by a wide variety of names including Basotect and Melatech this foam is an extremely lightweight foam (7-9kg/m³) in various grades providing differing performance values including a Class O fire rated version.
Suitable for profiling into a variety of shapes, melamine foam can be used as an acoustic core behind another material or as a finished product such as ceiling tiles.
Polyurethane foams are available in various grades from furniture grade foams through to Class O fire rated versions and in densities ranging from 20kg/m³ to 90kg/m³.
Suitable for profiling into a variety of shapes, melamine foam can be used as an acoustic core behind another material or as a finished product such as anechoic wedges.
Manufactured froma closed cell PE foam and needle punched to allow sound through, Envirosound is an ideal alternative where aa traditional PU foam just wont work.
In UV stable and fire resistant variants Envirosound is an excellent choice for external applications such as barriers and acoustic louvres.
