Below are frequently asked questions, you may find the answer for yourself

  • What is acoustic foam?

    Acoustic foam is used to absorb sound and improve the acoustic properties of a room environment. It is designed to reduce echoes, reverberation, and unwanted reflections. Acoustic foam is typically made from open-cell polyurethane foam or melamine foam. Using acoustic foam can help improve sound quality by reducing echoes, reverberation, and excessive reflections in a room. It enhances speech intelligibility, music clarity, and overall listening experience. Additionally, it can create a more controlled and professional acoustic environment. It is an important component of many recording studios, home theaters, music practice rooms, and other places where sound quality matters.

  • What does NRC mean?

    NRC stands for Noise Reduction Coefficient. It is a measure used to quantify the sound absorption capabilities of a material, including acoustic foam. The NRC rating ranges from 0 to 1, with higher values indicating greater sound absorption. The NRC rating represents the average amount of sound energy absorbed by the material across a range of frequencies. For example, an NRC rating of 0.80 means that the material absorbs approximately 80% of the sound energy that comes into contact with it. The NRC rating is an important specification to consider when choosing acoustic materials, as it provides an indication of how effectively they can reduce echoes, reverberation, and unwanted reflections in a room. Materials with higher NRC ratings are generally more effective at absorbing sound and improving acoustics.

  • Why egg crate shape acoustic foam performsbetter?

    The convoluted surface of the egg crate acoustic foam creates a larger surface area, which can contribute to increased sound diffusion and absorption. This can help reduce echoes, reverberation, and standing waves in a room, leading to improved acoustics. Egg crate acoustic foam works by absorbing sound waves that come into contact with its surface. The foam's porous structure allows it to trap and dissipate sound energy, reducing echoes and reverberation in a room and improving sound clarity.

  • Can egg crate acoustic foam eliminate allsound completely?

    Egg crate acoustic foam is designed to absorb sound and reduce its reflections, but it cannot eliminate all sound completely. It helps to control and manage the acoustics of a space, improving sound quality and reducing unwanted noise, but it won't block all external sounds.

  • How thick should acoustic foam be foroptimal performance?

    The thickness of acoustic foam depends on various factors such as the size of the room, the frequency range of the sound you want to control, and the specific acoustic properties of the foam. Generally, thicker foam or multiple layers can provide better sound absorption across a wider frequency range. Two inches acoustic foam is a popular choice because it is thick enough to offer good sound absorption across a wide frequency range, while still being relatively affordable and easy to install. It can effectively reduce echoes, reverberation, and unwanted reflections in a room, leading to improved acoustics.

  • Is your egg crate acoustic foam fireretardant?

    Our acoustic foam has fire retardants added to the foam's formula, not just sprayed on the surface.

  • How long does acoustic foam typically lastbefore needing replacement?

    The lifespan of acoustic foam depends on various factors, including the foam quality, usage, and environmental conditions. With proper care and maintenance, acoustic foam can last for 3-5 years. However, it may degrade over time and lose some of its sound-absorbing properties, eventually requiring replacement.

  • How to clean acoustic foam?

    The best way to clean acoustic foam is to use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment. This will remove any dust or debris that has accumulated on the surface of the foam. You can also use a lint roller to remove any surface debris.
