StudiofoamPro is the first melamine-free acoustical foam with a Class A fire rating. Even though its profile is a slim 1.5” thick, StudiofoamPro offers a higher noise reduction coefficient (NRC =.90) than 2” Studiofoam Wedges, Auralex’s most popular product and a world standard.

Studiofoam ProStudiofoamPro presents a low-cost option for sound absorption in churches, restaurants, clubs, professional settings and other venues that require Class A fire-rated acoustical treatment.

Due to Auralex’s proprietary chemical formulation, StudiofoamPro has all the traditional benefits of Auralex’s industry-leading Studiofoam, including outstanding durability due to reduced oxidation. StudiofoamPro will not rot, crumble or suffer surface harm from normal use like other Class A alternatives such as melamine are reported to. Plus, it's more affordable!

StudiofoamPro is available in two sizes: 2’ x 2’ and 2’ x 4', both 1.5” thick. It is charcoal gray and features beveled edges similar to the elegant SonoFlat and ELiTE ProPanels.

The Backstory

Since Auralex became involved in acoustics decades ago, they’ve known that the Holy Grail of acoustical treatments was the invention of a version of Auralex Studiofoam that would yield excellent absorption characteristics AND a Class A fire rating. Auralex has worked with the chemists for years and years on this concept, but until now had never been able to come up with the magic formula. Now they have.

This is a big deal for you. Here’s why.

Some types of public buildings and some local fire codes require that acoustical materials be Class A flame retardant. (Class A indicates that the product’s “flame spread” and “smoke developed” ratings fall below certain thresholds. Auralex’s popular Studiofoam has always exhibited a strong Class B fire rating. Some competing products are also Class B, but some are Class C and some are not flame retardant at all, such as the products that were involved in the nightclub fires you may have read about.) Until now, when one needed Class A acoustical treatments under such circumstances, one’s choices were basically cloth-covered fiberglass and a special flame-retardant type of foam called melamine.

Nobody makes better-looking or better-performing cloth-covered fiberglass panels than Auralex. Auralex calls them ProPanels and they are wildly successful, primarily because the quality is second to none. The edges are laser straight and corners don’t exhibit the frayed cloth that many competing products do. The panels are beveled for a clean, professional look that you'll love. But ProPanels are not as affordable as Studiofoam has always been, so they weren’t ideal for some customers’ budgets.comparison

Melamine can be a decent absorber and does offer a Class A fire rating, but it is quite expensive and its physical attributes make it very sensitive to physical damage. It is quite brittle and not forgiving at all, so while it may look good when installed, it often doesn’t stay looking that way. Auralex has sold melamine, but it’s obviously not the ideal solution.

So, while Auralex has been able to provide a couple different products to customers who required Class A fire ratings, they’ve not had a product with the perfect combination of appearance, pricing, absorption and flame retardancy. This is why they’ve kept pushing their chemists over the years to come up with a Class A Studiofoam formula. They knew they could develop such a fantastic product, but it sure has taken a long time and a lot of effort. Many times, the chemists wanted to give up, but Auralex wouldn’t let them.

It was worth the effort, though.

Now Auralex can offer the ideal product: Class A flame retardancy, excellent pricing, a pro look AND the renowned physical characteristics of Auralex Studiofoam. StudiofoamPro exhibits the same reduced oxidation and long-lasting physical properties Studiofoam has always been known for, so your investment in StudiofoamPro will continue to yield benefits for many years to come.

The reduced oxidation and physical resiliency of StudiofoamPro makes it appropriate for use in classrooms, nightclubs, studios and more where physical contact with the product might occur or where the environment is less than ideal. In these cases, there’s simply no better product choice than StudiofoamPro. Competing products’ formulations can lead to extreme oxidation under less-than-ideal conditions, as shown in the unretouched photo here, which is of a pile of a well-known competing product. This will NOT happen with Auralex Studiofoam or StudiofoamPro. Auralex guarantees it.
