What is Acoustic Foam?

Our acoustic 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, they helps to create greater sound clarity. Because of this, acoustic products are often used in areas where the best quality of sound is the most important.

Where Acoustic Products are Used

You’ll often find acoustic 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 these products. This is likely because acoustic products are often cheaper than other acoustic treatment options. They are also considered easier to install than some alternatives.

How Acoustic Foam Works

direct vs indirect sound

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 acoustic products in a room with sound issues, you can help to prevent this interference. Acoustic foam softens vulnerable surfaces which 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.
