What is Sound Blocking Foam and What is it Used For?

If you’ve ever been trying to work at your desk, and you can overhear your boss on the phone in the next room, or you’ve been trying to sleep, and you hear your significant other tinkling the coffee cups in the kitchen, then you’ll know that sound can be pretty adept at travelling through walls. Sound insulation foam or sound blocking foam is mainly used to stop the sound from travelling through walls.

Don’t get sound blocking foam confused with acoustic foam, however, as they differ significantly in how they work and what they are used for.

The difference between acoustic foam and sound blocking foam

  • Acoustic foam is generally softer and a little more lightweight than sound blocking foam. It has a flexible and open foam structure that actually absorbs soundwaves and stops noises from bouncing/reverberating off surfaces such as ceilings, walls and floors. Acoustic foam can also be used to enhance the sound within a room, which is particularly useful when implemented in a recording studio or lecture hall, etc. They are usually installed as acoustic foam tiles or panels within the wall.
  • Sound blocking foam is different from acoustic foam in that it doesn’t absorb sound, but rather prevents it from travelling through walls. It has a closer cell structure and is often thicker and denser than acoustic foam. Sound blocking foam is more commonly used within walls to prevent sound from travelling between rooms. This is particularly important in offices and other places where people are trying to concentrate and will be distracted by outside noises.
