Auralex Construction Products Info

Published: Thu April 17, 2008  News Feed

If one of your main concerns in achieving studio acoustics is stopping sound from traveling in or out of your room, this is most likely addressed with a multi-layered studio construction approach - adding mass and/or airspace to your existing structure or better yet, building a room within a room. Auralex Studiofoam acoustic absorption panels are not an acoustic sound barrier, so it will do little to stop sound from traveling through your walls, ceiling or floor.

Auralex Acoustics offers numerous sound studio construction products to assist with your acoustic sound isolation issues, which are all outlined in our on-line document entitled "Acoustics 101" located in our literature section.

Mineral Fiber Insulation (MFI):

The best way to tighten up a room's sound and make it more soundproof in the process is to design it right, build it tight and make the partitions as dense as possible. That's where our specialized Mineral Fiber sound insulation comes in. It's WAY more dense than "the pink stuff" and is specifically designed for acoustical usage. It yields much better bass trapping, overall absorption, thermal characteristics, moisture absorption and sound transmission loss (isolation) than any other product we've found.

Advantages vs. Std. Fiberglass: better sound isolation, better acoustic absorption, lower moisture absorption, better flame spread and smoke density, 1200° burn point vs. 650°

Sheetblok Sound Barrier:

SheetBlok Sound Isolation Barrier is a dense, limp-mass vinyl material that is about 6dB more effective than solid lead at stopping the transmission of sound. It acts as a thin, dense sound barrier layer in walls, ceilings or floors and is most effective when used as one component of a multi-layered construction scheme.

SheetBlok helps in decoupling (i.e. floating) floors and walls and, while it's not normally considered a finish product per se, it is paintable with latex paint.
