Clinton Township, Michigan - Foam Factory has rebuffed claims that its acoustic polyurethane foam line is underperforming or ineffective compared to other brands of acoustic foam.
The company commissioned independent third party testing from Riverbank Acoustical Laboratories, and said the results of the testing shows Foam Factory's foam has acoustical performance ratings that measure greater than or similar to those of leading competitors.
Additional third-party evaluations from Commercial Testing Company also concluded that Foam Factory's acoustic foam is fire retardant, "debunking another claim that has surfaced on the internet," Foam Factory said in a 19 Nov news release.
The Michigan-based foam manufacturer said its PU acoustic foam achieved the highest Class 1/A fire retardancy rating. Foam Factory noted that given the substantial number of electronic components present in recording studios and sound mixing spaces, it is vital that high-quality acoustic foam also be fire retardant.
Acoustic foam is used to improve the sound quality of areas like mixing stations, listening rooms, and recording studios by increasing clarity and reducing reflections and echoes.
