Soundproofed is healthy

Soundproofing and noise protection made of foam

We are surrounded by noises and sound every day - both day and night. Whether in the home, on the street or at work: noise inevitably surrounds us around the clock and has become one of the most significant environmental problems of our time - especially traffic noise (planes, cars, rail traffic). This constant exposure is not only annoying, but can also have a strong, negative impact on our health. Hearing damage, stress as well as heart and circulatory problems can result from excessive noise exposure in everyday life. Problems with communication, information intake and concentration can also be caused by an increased noise level.

In order to reduce noise pollution in everyday life, specific measures should be taken for Soundproofing or. noise protection be seized. In addition to careful handling of noise sources, this also includes structural measures such as the installation of Soundproof doors and Soundproof windows when renovating a building or installing a Soundproof wall on a busy street near a residential area.

Permanent noise in everyday life makes sound insulation essential.

In addition to these precautions, the targeted use of acoustic elements made of foam, or more precisely acoustic foam, can help reduce sound and noise in everyday life.

In the following we look at how noise is actually created and have collected some interesting facts about foam as a sound insulation for you.

How does noise arise in everyday life?

The classification of noise is individual, i.e. different sound sources are perceived as annoying to different degrees by people.

In general, the generation of noise can be traced back to two causes: On the one hand, noise is caused by a high level of noise Sound pressure level and can be caused by, for example, a loud source of noise such as a jackhammer or radio.

On the other hand, it can be more unwanted reverberation negatively affect room acoustics. This leads to longer reverberation times and a superposition of several noises. If the reverberation time is too long, the following syllables are covered when speaking, which distorts the speech signal and leads to a deterioration in speech intelligibility. Other noises (coughing, moving chairs, typing the keyboard, etc.) also remain in the room for too long, so that the noise level increases. Overall, too long reverberation times increase the background noise level in the room.

The use of acoustic foam as noise protection

Acoustic elements made of foam are suitable both for lowering the sound pressure level (soundproofing / soundproofing) and improving room acoustics (soundproofing / sound absorption).

Foam can be used as sound insulation for sound insulation, for example on walls, ceilings and floors, but also for machine housings or for sound insulation in recording studios.

As a sound absorber for sound absorption, acoustic foam reduces reverberation times and absorbs disruptive frequency ranges. It improves speech understanding in public spaces such as offices, call centers, schools and kindergartens. It can also provide spectacular sound moments in the home hi-fi studio or in your own music room.

Quality directly from the manufacturer

Of course, for effective noise protection, it is important to pay attention to the quality of the foam. Acoustic foam can only develop its full potential as noise protection through high-quality processing.

As a manufacturer with 60 years of experience in the production of soundproofing elements made of foam, we are from aixFOAM therefore particularly high value on the quality of our goods. All acoustic elements in our aixFOAM online shop are therefore regularly checked for "heart and pores".

Advantages of aixFOAM acoustic foam as sound insulation

    1. Fine-pored surface
      Foam is characterized by its properties as a particularly effective sound absorber. Sound can penetrate deep into the material through the pores and is absorbed there.
    1. Visually appealing
      Foam is an extremely flexible material. This means that it can be edited and interesting profiles such as pyramid foam or convoluted foam can be produced. In addition, we offer many different colors and surface linings made of felt.
    1. Flexible application, easy assembly
      Our sound insulation panels are available in different material thicknesses for every requirement of your sound insulation. You can also choose between different mounting options such as hanging cassettes for wall or ceiling as well as self-adhesive sound absorbers.
    1. Easy processing
      Acoustic foam can be processed with conventional tools or household appliances during assembly, which makes it popular as a building material.
    1. Excellent fire protection properties
      Our soundproofing panels are available in different fire classes. Not only are they flame retardant, they also meet the requirements of fire protection class DIN4102 B1.
    1. Plan sound insulation effectively
