The reduction of resonance in the room is particularly important for sound studios so that natural effects cannot be heard if possible on recordings. Our Basotect foams as plane, pyramid or decor sheets are ideally suited for this purpose, or our PUR convoluted or pyramid sheets, depending on your optical requirements. Our Basotect foam does not darken the room (it is white or light grey and does not yellow) and complies with very high fire protection regulations. PUR foam is very inexpensive in contrast, but is anthracite. We recommend a sheet thickness of 5cm to 7cm - the lower the frequencies are (for example, bass), the thicker you should choose the sheets. However, 5cm is a good all-round solution. If you line 100% of the room, it is anechoic. It is often sufficient to line 50 – 60% of the existing surfaces to ensure balanced room acoustics. Often, the entire ceiling and one or two side walls are covered - the resonance is thus greatly reduced.

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
