Sound Dampening Acoustic Foam
Are you frustrated with other brands of acoustic foam not performing like they should? Let us help you with our fantastic inventory of premium acoustic foam for soundproofing. We can assist in ensuring your audio recordings sound cleaner, crisper, and better than ever by adding sound dampening acoustic foam to any location.
We Have All the Foam for Your Sound Treatment Needs!
When choosing the right foam for your needs, the shape of the foam matters a great deal. Since studio foam used for acoustic control works by absorbing sound waves, the design will affect the way these sound waves are received. We offer several shapes in sound absorbing foam to meet a range of needs with ease and affordability.
This shape offers a professional appearance while supplying superior performance for your sound needs. The wedge size will determine how the foam will work in soundproofing an acoustic area; a 1-inch wedge will deliver moderate results, whereas the 4-inch wedge will supply maximum sound absorption.
Operating under the same principle as sound bouncing off the wedge design, pyramid acoustic panels offer reliable soundproofing and a slightly different sounding acoustic than wedge panels. Similar to the wedge foam, pyramid foam is offered in several different sizes. The larger pyramids tend to offer more soundproofing than the smaller cuts.
Thanks to the lowered cost, eggcrate is an excellent solution for anyone looking to save on foam without compromising on performance. Often used with the added solution of acoustical cloth, eggcrate is an inexpensive noise-reducing foam. It is available in varying sizes and features a rounded shape that absorbs sound evenly.
With its textured design and flat waves, wave foam is an attractive way to improve the acoustics of a space while getting sound dampening benefits. Compression cut for added accuracy and precision, this foam for sound dampening is easy to install with their interlocking design, which makes them ideal for covering large spaces with ease.
The design of this acoustic foam is slightly tilted to help achieve improved acoustics and sound absorption. Offered in 2-packs with both an edged piece and an edgeless piece to meet a range of needs, this type of soundproofing foam helps to clarify bouncing sound waves for improved sound quality. With the more modern appeal of the appearance, this is a popular choice for studios and businesses looking for a polished vibe.
Offering a stylish, rippled appearance without compromising function. Whether in a home media room or a professional recording studio, spade foam offers high-quality echo absorption. Sold in sets of 2 interlocking panels, this acoustic foam is great for larger spaces looking to cover a lot of wall space.
Used in a variety of applications, sound barriers are available in two different foam types: Polyethylene Roll and Neoprene. Soundproofing barriers features a smoother appearance that is pleasing to the eye, while also offering a consistent result in the blocking of sound.
Sound frequencies can be tricky to absorb. With absorbers, you can achieve a better result in rooms both small and large when dealing with low frequencies. Since lower frequencies tend to be longer and carry further, the use of absorbers is a great way to combat them. Offered in shapes such as rectangle, cube, and male/female sets, these foam pieces are ideal for placement in the corners of rooms to absorb sounds.
Part of creating the best sound space possible is looking at the area as a whole. While many people will cover the walls with sound dampening foam, the ceiling is sometimes forgotten. This crucial area can be improved with our ceiling tiles. Available in both smooth and textured patterns, this type of foam can add extra sound dampening properties to any space.
Frequently Asked Acoustical Foam Questions
Does foam help soundproof?
Foam is a great solution for sound treatments! It is designed to reduce noise by absorbing and controlling sound waves. Even though all foams listed here will help, thicker sound absorption foam tends to dampen noise better than thinner options.
What is the best material for soundproofing?
Acoustic foam is the best material for sound absorption. In rooms where there is a lot of noise or too much echo, the acoustic foam will help control the sound and bring it down to a reasonable level. When looking for quality sound treatments, design can also be important. Wedge, pyramid, and eggcrate foams tend to be more effective than foam with a flat surface.
How much does soundproof foam cost?
The pricing on foam for sound treatments can vary. Size, thickness, and design can all have an effect on cost. Our acoustical foam starts at a budget-friendly cost, and increases in cost based on the designs and sizes that you choose for your project.
How do you soundproof a wall cheaply?
Soundproofing a wall with foam is a great way to get the job done on a budget. The use of sound barrier sheets, like Neoprene, is affordable and easy to implement in any location. These sheets are the most effective way to help prevent sound from going through a wall.
Does soundproofing work for noisy neighbors?
Noisy neighbors can be a nuisance when you are looking for some peace and quiet. Whether the sound is coming from next door or from up above, applying soundproof foam or sound barriers to the walls and ceiling will help keep the racket out. This will also help keep the noises inside, in case you are concerned that you are the loud neighbor. Typically, a denser material will dampen sound better.
How do I soundproof a room for cheap?
There is a range of selections to soundproof a room on a budget. Noise-reducing foam panels, sound barrier sheets, and corner blocks are all cost-effective ways to complete a project. Keep in mind that the best product for you will depend on the goal you are trying to achieve.
Can you soundproof a garage?
Soundproofing a garage is no sweat! Thicker noise cancellation foam can be used for the walls and ceiling to prevent echo. For the garage door, windows, or other doors, sound barriers will help reduce the amount of sound escaping. To allow your garage door to continue opening and closing without issue, foam can also be custom cut to your specifics.
How can I soundproof my bedroom?
The first step to soundproofing a bedroom is knowing your final goal. If your goal is to block sound disturbances from coming or going completely, dense sound barriers will be your best option. If your goal is to stop a sound from reverberating off the walls, then acoustic foam will do the trick.
How do you soundproof a ceiling?
To soundproof a ceiling, you will first need to measure to figure out the amount of foam material needed. The next step is to pick the thickness and design that will make the most sense for your application.
When installing the foam panels, the easiest way to adhere the product to the ceiling surface is with spray adhesive. You could also staple or nail the panels, but keep in mind that those will be going directly into your ceiling and could damage the foam material.
How can I soundproof a room without damaging walls?
The most shared method to apply noise-insulating foam is by using a spray adhesive. This, however, is a relatively permanent solution, and it may tear the paint off the walls if you decide to remove the panels later. To avoid this issue, it is common practice to apply the panels to wood or cardboard and then anchor those to the wall. If you decide to remove those later, you will only have a few screw holes to fill.
How do I soundproof a room?
There are a number of options when deciding to soundproof a room. A few of them include:
- Acoustic Foam Panels: These are available in a range of sizes, thicknesses, and surface designs. They can be placed on walls and ceilings to help absorb sound. To maximize the effectiveness of your sound treatment, opt for thicker foam or surfaces such as wedge, pyramid, or eggcrate.
- Sound Barriers: These are usually denser than nonresonant foam panels, and they can be used where sound deadening is desired. They can also be used with other solutions on this list as an extra measure. Sound barriers are ideal for walls and ceilings.
- Corner Blocks and Bass Absorbers: These are great to add to the corners of a room, where soundproofing can prove more difficult. They are specially designed to help prevent the buildup of any lower bass reverberations in a room.
Can you soundproof existing walls?
The simplest solution for soundproofing an existing wall is to add foam to the walls. You can add sound dampening panels, sound barrier sheets, or both to reduce as much noise and echo as possible.
Is there a difference between soundproofing and sound absorption?
There is a pretty big difference between soundproofing and sound absorption. Soundproofing aims to prevent noise from leaving or coming into a room as much as possible. On the other hand, sound absorption is applying foam to absorb sound waves and prevent unwanted noise from bouncing around a room.
