Acoustic Foams

Singer Safety offers high quality acoustic foams and panels that provide excellent noise absorption in the mid-to-high frequency noise range. You can use our acoustic foams to line machine or equipment surfaces, guards, enclosures, walls, and doors to absorb noise from industrial operations. Our acoustic foams can have flat or convoluted surfaces, whichever you prefer. Our foam is easy to cut to any size you need. It can also be fastened to nearly any wall, ceiling, or surface. Our customers love our acoustic foams because they produce a smoother, quieter work environment for their employees and their business as a whole. Singer Safety makes the best noise reduction products available. 

Singer Safety’s foam is easy to cut to the size needed and can be fastened to most surfaces with a water-based adhesive. Our foams have good structural integrity and require little mechanical support. We offer:

Please determine the height and order curtain and noise panel systems to the exact height required. (Normal tolerance is +/- 2”).

What is Acoustic Foam? 

Acoustic foam is used for sound absorption and insulation. It attenuates airborne sound waves and reduces their amplitude in order to reduce noise. Acoustical foam can be attached to walls, ceilings, doors, and other room features to reduce noise, vibration, and echoes. Acoustic foam helps create a safer and quieter industrial environment. 

How Does Acoustic Foam Work? 

Sound is simply energy. When something vibrates, the air around it also vibrates. The vibrations are carried through the air in the form of soundwaves. The sound waves are carried to the inside of your ears, which also start to vibrate. However, certain materials can adjust how these vibrations behave. 

Acoustic foam, sometimes referred to as noise foam, can be used to manipulate vibrations and The open and flexible structure of foam acts as a natural sound wave absorbing material. It prevents noises from reverberating off hard surfaces like walls, floors and ceilings. How? By converting existing sound energy to heat and reducing the ability of the soundwaves to bounce back into the room. Acoustic foam absorbs noise, rather than blocks noise. 

In addition to using acoustic foam to dilute sound, you can also use it to enhance the acoustics in a room, like in a recording studio. When the foam is cut into pyramid or wedge shapes, it can actually improve the quality of the sound.

What are the Uses for Acoustic Foam? 

The goal of acoustic foam is to change or improve a room’s sound qualities by absorbing sound. There are a variety of uses for Singer Safety’s acoustic foam. While our company is committed to noise control systems for industrial settings, it’s not just for manufacturers and factories. Whether you need to control sound in your church or gymnasium, or if you are a professional musician who needs to control music levels in your studio, our acoustic foam can help. You can also use acoustic foam in control rooms, offices, man caves, you name it. Here are some common uses for our acoustic foam: 

Benefits of Acoustic Foams 

Reduce Noise Pollution 

Sound waves, like light, can pass through even the smallest holes or openings in holes, walls, or really any material. Acoustic foams reduce noise pollution and remove echoes and background sounds not by blocking the sound, but by absorbing it. 

Enhance Sound Quality 

Acoustic foams that are cut in tiles with pyramid or wedge shapes not only absorb sound, but they also enhance the quality of sound within a room. You can use acoustic foam to minimize sound echoes within a room. 

Improve Room’s Design 

Many people use acoustic foams in their home studios or work areas in order to minimize noise for the rest of their home or office. Acoustic foam can improve the acoustics in a room and make it a more valuable and useful space. 

Easy to Install 

Acoustic foams are simple and easy to install or cut down to size. 

Singer Safety Noise Foam Options

Singer Safety’s acoustic foam is easy to cut to any size you require. It can also be fastened to most surfaces with a water-based adhesive. Our foams have excellent structural integrity and require little to no mechanical support. We offer the following options for acoustic foam: 

Standard Acoustic Foam (SAF)

Standard Acoustic Foam, commonly referred to as “SAF,” is an open-celled polyurethane flat foam. This kind of acoustic foam is effective for mid-to-high frequency noise absorption. It is charcoal in color and sold in rolls. 

Aluminized Mylar Foam (AMF)

Aluminized Mylar Foam, commonly referred to as “AMF,” is identical to standard acoustic foam, except that it is laminated with one mil aluminized Mylar facing. The easy-to-clean facing reflects both light and heat, and protects the foam from dirt, dust, and grease. It is sold in rolls.

Convoluted Foam

Convoluted foam is a polyurethane foam that offers superior sound absorption. It is sold in sheets and four to a box.

Sound Stick Adhesive 

Singer Safety also sells sound stick adhesive. There are 32’ of bead per tube. You will need approximately one tube per each 10’ section. 

Are Flat or Convoluted Foams Better For Me? 

You can choose Singer Safety acoustic foams in either flat or convoluted, cone-shaped surfaces. However, convoluted foams offer four times the surface than flat foams. Convoluted foams also redirect sound waves back into the foam, which is where the sound is converted to energy and absorbed. 

If you’re unsure which type of acoustic foam is the best option for your business, contact Singer Safety today. Our experts can help you determine which will fit your needs. 

Acoustical Foam Sheet vs. Acoustic Foam Roll 

Acoustic foams come in both sheets and rolls, depending on what kind you choose and several other factors. 

Sound Absorption Foam 

The important thing to know about acoustic foam is that it absorbs noise, it doesn’t block out. This means that acoustic foam does not necessarily mean a space is completely soundproofed. If you need to sound proof an area, check out some of our other noise control products. 

Singer Safety Sound Control Systems and Acoustic Foams

Singer Safety specializes in noise control systems. In fact, our company developed the original noise partition in 1965. Our Sound Stopper products continue to be recognized as leaders in the industry today. You might want to try our acoustic foams in conjunction with some of our other sound stopping products, like our ceiling baffles. Contact Singer Safety today to learn more or place an order!
