What is Acoustic Foam?
Our acoustic foam tiles and bass traps excel in the ability to absorb sound wave energy. The foam is created from a combination of polyurethane foam and melamine foam.
When properly mounted in a room with acoustic issues, acoustic foam helps to improve audio quality. Because of this, soundproofing foam products are often used in areas where the best quality of sound is the most important.
Where Soundproofing Foam is Used
You’ll often find soundproofing foam tiles and bass traps mounted inside the likes of recording studios, rehearsal rooms and home cinemas.
However, the use of these products is not strictly limited to areas such as this. Acoustic products have rapidly grown in popularity. They are becoming commonplace in a wide range of different rooms and areas.
Places such as restaurants, bars, nightclubs, educational buildings, public transport facilities, event venues and more are adopting the use of soundproofing foam. This is likely because these products are often cheaper than many other acoustic treatment options. Soundproofing foam is also considered easier to install than other, more invasive alternatives.
Acoustic Tiles & Bass Traps for YouTube Channels
Many individuals with YouTube channels use soundproofing foam panels and bass traps to help improve sound quality in the videos they create. Mounting acoustic tiles and bass traps in a room where voice recording takes place is a simple and relatively inexpensive procedure.
Youtubers are always looking for new ways to enhance their videos for audiences. Foam Direct has added a new line of red and blue acoustic products. These colourful variants can help to add new visually appealing dynamics to videos, as well as improve the quality of recorded sound.
If you’re a content creator, why not take a look? The same principle applies to streamers on Twitch, for voiceover artists, musicians and much more. Many different groups of people choose to use soundproofing foam to help improve audio quality.
Working From Home With Soundproofing Foam
More people than ever before are now working from home. Whilst the idea of working at home sounds appealing, it’s a difficult thing to get used to. There are certainly some preparations that one can undertake to make the process better.
With many meetings now being held virtually on the likes of, Skype Zoom and Microsoft Teams, getting the best audio quality you can is certainly useful. If you find the acoustics in your home office are poor, try using our soundproofing foam products.
Soundproofing foam tiles placed in the correct positions around your home office can dramatically help to improve the sound you and others can hear.
If you’ve got an important meeting scheduled, you don’t want vital pieces of information being lost to poor audio quality. You can also invest in a better quality headset/microphone to aid in this.
We offer soundproofing foam tiles and acoustic foam bass traps in three distinct and attractive colours including red, blue and classic studio grey.
Our soundproofing foam products are precision cut using CNC equipment to maintain consistency. No longer will you have to rely on that fake office background. Our soundproofing foam is not only great at improving audio quality, it also looks stylish whilst doing so.
How Acoustic Foam Works
Sound waves come in many different frequencies. These range from high frequencies to low (known as bass). When sound waves are expelled from a source, they must travel to your ear for you to be able to register them.
Some sound waves travel directly from the source to your ear. These are referred to as direct sound waves. These waves tend to produce clear, uninhibited sound.
However, some sound waves (known as indirect sound waves) bounce off surfaces before reaching your ear. These waves cause delays and interference in both live and recorded sound.
By installing soundproofing foam in a room with sound issues, you can help to prevent this interference. Acoustic foam softens vulnerable surfaces that indirect sound waves are likely to ricochet from.
Because of the nature of this foam, it can absorb a percentage of the energy contained within sound waves. If a sound wave contains less energy, it can’t travel as far and won’t interfere with sound quality.
High frequencies contain less energy than low frequencies (bass). High-frequency sound waves can generally be controlled with acoustic panels. For low frequencies though, you’ll require bass traps. Bass tends to travel to room corners. Therefore, we install thick pieces of foam (bass traps) to help control them.

We suggest you explore your options to give you a better idea about which method works best for you.
