Two areas are differentiated: Room acoustics and noise insulation
First area:room acoustics
Restaurants, bars and canteens have the same problem: The conversations of customers become increasingly louder until you can no longer hear yourself or almost have to shout because the sound waves in the room rise due to the scarcity of absorbing materials. You can remedy this situation quickly and easily with our products. You have two options here:
The look must match the atmosphere - the sheets should not be visible if possible. Here, you have only the option of mounting the sheets, for example, under the tables and chairs. It would be important that your customers could not touch the sheets, because they would break over time otherwise. Thus install the sheets at a sufficient distance from the edge of the table or chair. This solution is only the second best one because the sound which is produced must hit the floor and only after reflection is it then partly absorbed under tables and chairs. Suitable foams in this case are our acoustic foams made of Basotect absorber or PURPLAN foams with a thickness of 1 – 3 cm.
It is more effective if you attach the sheets to the ceiling or walls because the sound can then hit them directly. You can, for example, draw long tracks on the ceiling (with acoustic foam made of Basotect decor) or line beautiful patterns on the ceiling with acoustic foam made of Basotect octa or mount small groups of sheets (for example, 4 pieces) with acoustic foam made of Basotect absorber. You can also let us disguise the colours of the sheets according to RAL and thus adapt them to your interior design.
Second area:outward noise insulation

Here, you will find the most frequently asked questions by customers
Fire protection is an important issue when installing acoustic foam sheets.
The quality of the acoustic foam is largely responsible for its absorption behaviour.
Noise insulation is much more complicated than pure acoustic improvement or resonance removal.
You can easily mount foam because it is very light compared to other materials
