1) How many acoustic foam panels do I need?

For typical sound control application, 25 to 75% surface coverage is recommended.

2) Where should I place the foam?

The optimal placement is situated closer to the source of the source of the sound. You can apply the foam 60cm to 1m above the floor.

3) Why should you choose our foam?

Our foam is studio-grade and professional equipment. It is great for enhancing sound and speech quality within a room. Our foam is highly effective sound deadeners and they reduce standing waves and flutter echo. These foam panels are ideal for auditoriums, broadcasting studios, vocal booths, control rooms, home theatres, boardrooms, concert halls, home offices, recording studios and restaurants.

4) Will the acoustic foam prevent sound from traveling through my walls?

The acoustic foam will reduce the sound to a limited degree and NOT completely. However, it will improve the acoustics inside a room by absorbing reverb and sound reflections.

5) What material is used for soundproofing/sound treatment?

Acoustic panels are a great option if you want to prevent noise from getting trapped in a room and creating unwanted echo or reverberation. These panels absorb sound, which reduces echoes and feedback. Acoustic panels can either be made from compressed wood, wool or foam which absorb sound waves and reduce reverberation by transforming it into heat energy. Acoustic foam panels in particular are a type of porous absorber that will enable soundwaves to penetrate the material's surface and flow into the fibrous/cellular structure.

6) Does foam sound treatment work?

Polyethylene foam panels are a great option if you want a simple and effective way to improve the sound quality in your home or workspace. High-density polyethylene foam panels are an excellent material for sound absorption and absorb sound over a large surface area. Furthermore, foam panels are inexpensive, lightweight, and simple to install.

7) Can you soundproof your bedroom?

Yes, you can soundproof your bedroom, but the effort required depends on several factors, including:

  • How much noise reduction do you need?
  • Is it necessary to reduce interior or exterior noise?
  • What direction does the noise come from?
  • Where is your bedroom located?
  • What is your budget?

Soundproofing your bedroom has several interconnected issues. To achieve the desired level of noise reduction, you must address all of them. Speaking with a soundproofing consultant will help you achieve the best results within your means. Although Hush Echo does not provide soundproofing-specific services and products, we do understand the high-level concepts that are related to soundproofing as some of these concepts are cross functional with sound treatment.

8) Does foam work for soundproofing?

Soundproofing with foam is ineffective. This is because it has insufficient mass to block sound but sufficient mass to absorb. As a result, acoustic foam is better suited for sound treatment and not soundproofing.

9) What foam absorbs sound the best?

To understand how foam reduces noise, it's first necessary to distinguish between the open-cell and closed-cell foam. While both foams provide some insulation and noise barriers, their properties distinguish them as two different products. Acoustic energy in the air is converted to heat, reducing the noise signal's amplitude. The power is lost in the process, so selecting the appropriate material is critical for ensuring maximum energy absorption.

Open-cell foam has a structure that allows air to move through it via porous spots and openings. The open-cell absorb sounds and liquids by retaining these components within their cell chambers. Unfortunately, because of its irregular shape, you may lack control over the amount of sound energy absorbed. On the other hand, closed-cell foam has tightly woven cells that produce a denser material that is better at absorbing low-frequency noises.

To choose the best fit for your noise reduction needs, you must first evaluate the need for the room in which you will be treating the sound. All foams have a distinct and varying level of performance and benefits that can help you meet your various sound and reverberation reduction requirements.

10) How thick should foam be for acoustic treatment?

Different thicknesses of acoustic foam may be required depending on your sound requirements. For echoes, mid and high frequencies, 2.5-cm and 5-cm foam work best. For low-end bass, 7.5-cm and 10-cm foam are ideal (bass traps).

11) What's the difference between acoustic foam and regular foam?

Acoustic foam is firmer, more durable, fire retardant, and has a different structural composition. In addition, acoustic foam is a more specialised and tailored product designed for a narrow range of specific applications.
