Auralex Presents Class A Fire-Rated Studiofoam Pro at AES 2010

The Industry’s First Melamine-Free Class A Fire-Rated Acoustical Foam

SAN FRANCISCO, CA – Auralex Acoustics, Inc., the industry leader in innovative sound control solutions, is showcasing its new Studiofoam Pro, the industry’s first melamine-free Class A fire-rated acoustical foam, at AES 2010 (Booth 729).

Studiofoam Pro is available in two sizes: 2’ x 2’ and 2’ x 4′, both 1.5? thick. It is available in charcoal gray and features beveled edges and provides a Noise Coefficient Rating (NRC) of 0.90. Studiofoam Pro presents a low-cost option for sound absorption in studios, churches, restaurants, clubs and any other venues that requires a Class A fire-rated acoustical treatment. The absorption level has not been tainted by creating acoustical foam that is Class A fire-rated. In fact, the foam maintains the same cell structure, but the cells are smaller, condensing the thickness of the panel and provides superior performance to a standard 1? thick fiberglass panel.

“Auralex is proud to expand on our Studiofoam product line and to introduce another industry landmark by bringing melamine–free Class A fire-retardant acoustical foam to market,? says Eric Smith, founder and president of Auralex Acoustics. “Studiofoam Pro is the perfect combination of appearance, pricing, flame retardancy and the renowned physical characteristics of Auralex’s best-selling Studiofoam.?

Many public buildings and local fire codes require that acoustical materials be Class A fire-retardant. Until now, Class A rated acoustical treatments included basic cloth-covered fiberglass and a special flame-retardant type of foam called melamine. Melamine can serve as an absorber, but it is not only expensive, its physical attributes make it very sensitive to physical damage.

Due to Auralex’s proprietary chemical formulation, Studiofoam Pro has all the traditional benefits of Auralex’s industry-leading Studiofoam, including outstanding durability due to reduced oxidation. Studiofoam Pro will not rot, crumble or suffer surface harm from normal use like other reported Class A alternatives.

Studiofoam Pro is Class A rated according to ASTM-E84, which evaluates flame spread and smoke density. It passed the UL 94 HF1,2, which is a fire-rating test specifically for nonstructural foam materials like acoustical foam. It also passed MVSS 302, a fire test requirement for materials installed in motor vehicles. Passing the MVSS 302 is significant for product installation in RVs and media vehicles. The last test that Studiofoam Pro passed is the California Technical Bulletin 117 (Cal 117), which contains an open flame test and a smoldering cigarette test.
