ACOUSTICAL FOAM PANELS
ACOUSTICAL FOAM PANELSANTHONY andTORREFIELAcoustic foamis an open celledfoamused foracoustic treatment. It attenuates airbornesound wavesby increasing air resistance, thus reducing theamplitudeof the waves. The energy is dissipated asheat. Acoustic Foam can be made in several different colors, sizes and thickness.Acoustic foam comes in a variety of sizes and can be attached to walls, ceilings, doors, and other features of a room to control noise levels, vibration, and echoes.
Many acoustic foam products are treated withdyesand/orfire retardants.The objective of acoustic foam is to improve the sound quality by removing residual sound in any space. This purpose requires strategic placement of acoustic foam panels on walls, ceiling and floors, effectively eliminating all resonance within the room.Acoustic enhancement
The objective is to enhance the properties of sound by improving speech clarity andsound quality.For this reason, acoustic foam is often used inrecording studios. The purpose is to reduce, but not entirely eliminate resonance within the room.Acoustic foam is primarily used in recording studios to minimize sound echoes. However, it can perform the same function in home theaters, manufacturing facilities, equipment warehouses, home offices, gymnasiums and auditoriums. It can be placed in any room where an optimal sound mix is desired.
