Let's explore some of the questions that we've received from our customers about using foam for soundproofing, deadening noise and controlling sound waves.
What is Acoustic Foam?
Most acoustic foam is made from an open-celled foam that reduces sound waves and their amplitude. The open cells capture the soundwaves so that they don't rebound from other surfaces to make more noise than necessary and reduce lower quality noise levels. The result is that you are able to apply noise reduction or noise control for better results.
Acoustic foam is used in many different ways; the most common applications include attaching it to walls, doors, ceilings and other parts of a room to keep vibration, echoes and noise levels at a minimum.
We can supply acoustic foam in many different forms. If you're unsure which type or style, you should use, please feel free to ask our team of foam experts. You can contact us to ask questions. We've also added a list of frequently asked questions on acoustic foam further down the page.
What types of acoustic soundproofing foam do you supply?
Here at eFoam, we supply several different acoustic foam types and can even provide custom soundproofing foam orders for you. Let's explore the different types of acoustic foam supplied by eFoam.
Tiles & Self Adhesive Panels: We make and stock two different sizes of acoustic foam soundproofing tiles that are available in a flat chamfered or convoluted finish. We also supply large self-adhesive acoustic foam panels which are available either as flat or convoluted. If you require soundproofing with a high fire rating – try our Pyrosorb-S class 0 tiles. We also recommend adding bass traps in each corner of your room.
Bass traps: The purpose of bass traps is to control acoustics and any reverberation in studios, mastering suites, home theatres or other rooms where the quality of sound is critical. Our bass traps are exceptionally effective at controlling particularly low-frequency reverberations that left to themselves would be problematic due to being long sound waves that are part of the audible bandwidth.
Professional Sonic Acoustics: Our Sonic range of acoustic products are manufactured in the UK to exacting British standards complying with UL94 HF1 Classification. This foam can significantly improve the quality of sound in any environment. It works particularly well with the high-frequency region. These are designed for use on walls, ceiling and can be installed using our spray adhesive. They are typically used in recording studios, suites, offices, churches and home theatres.
Acoustic foam cut to size: We can cut our acoustic foam to any size that you need. No matter what you're looking for, we can help. If you're looking for acoustic soundproofing for particular situations and you need more information about which one is the best one for your case, you can call us or email us to ask.
Pyrosorb-S Class 0 Acoustic foam: Our Pyrosorb-s is a class 0 rated acoustic foam. This is a superior grade of foam in its class. It is manufactured in the UK and distributed worldwide by eFoam.
Closed Cell Polyethylene EFP30 foam: Due to its closed cell formulation, polyethylene is an ideal foam to use for sound deadening applications. Please note, this particular product is not fire retardant. If you require a fire retardant version, please contact us.
We offer a range of acoustic foam – from the flat sheet and convoluted (egg-crate) sheet to bass traps that are typically added to the corner of each room. Our soundproofing tiles can be installed on walls and ceilings with adhesive spray glue, which we also supply for your convenience. If you're not sure about which foam you should be using, get in touch. We are happy to help.
What is acoustic soundproofing foam used for?
Our acoustic soundproofing foam can be used for many different applications. In addition to domestic-use, we also sell to businesses.
How does acoustic soundproofing foam work?
Sound waves come in a variety of different frequencies. They may be very low, which is known as bass or very high. For humans to hear a sound, they need the sound waves to travel to their ears. Many sound waves will reach your ear directly, without bouncing off any surface or obstacle on the way. This sound is evident for you to hear. Other sound waves don't travel directly. They will bounce off surfaces, which can cause delays when you're recording or even performing a live session.
The purpose of acoustic soundproofing is to catch the rogue soundwaves and dampen them so that they don't rebound. Sound waves have the energy removed from them with the acoustic foam and cannot travel far, and therefore the sound quality will not be interfered with. High frequencies contain less energy and can be controlled with acoustic panels, whereas lower frequencies need to be handled with bass traps. Bass will typically head to the corner of rooms, so they need to be installed in room corners.
