A comfortable environment today goes beyond warmth and security. Extraneous noises from the city, aircraft or automobiles can affect our level of comfort, of work, and of sleep. As a result, acoustics are an important structural consideration.

Many of today’s plastic foams are not only great insulators, sealants and vapor-barriers, but also serve as a means of providing sound abatement and noise control. A low density SPF can be used to provide insulation, an air barrier, and sound control.
