Do you have a building or space that is too loud, or are you designing to try and prevent that problem? Committing to a sound improvement project is a big step, but when you choose the right acoustic materials for the job, the result just may surprise and impress you. It is a result that offers benefits to all that enter and work in that space. These benefits have been concluded in study after study, which cite positive responses to sound improvement that include mood enhancement, employee performance, customer satisfaction, repeat business, and improved health.
For a day-to-day business, improving how sound travels and is absorbed throughout your space could result in significant improvements to your employee and customer's experience, which means improvements to your bottom line. For office, hospitality, residential, education, industrial, healthcare, and auditorium projects, improving sound absorption, and in certain cases sound diffusion, proves how essential it is to building occupants.
Not only do FSorb products surpass the industry standard on many levels (Class A fire rating, no VOCs, and fabricated in the US), but they also allow designers to create beautiful spaces while reducing excess ambient noise. Learn why FSorb is what architects, interior designers, and acoustic engineers choose to reach optimal results when it comes to superior sound absorption, aesthetic integration, and Eco-friendly materials.
Health and Safety Statistics Worth Considering
FSorb products offer top acoustic performance, durability, and enhanced voice absorption that go above and beyond. Multiple design and utility patents show the dedication to innovation for optimal performance, ease of installation, and health benefits. Overall, FSorb is a company that brings peace of mind when getting a project done with materials that last.
According to the EPA (Environmental Protection Agency), “The main concern indoors is the potential for VOCs to adversely impact the health of people that are exposed...Reducing the concentration of VOCs indoors and outdoors is an important health and environmental goal.” Unfortunately, as time goes on, some sound absorption materials continue off-gassing toxic VOCs (volatile organic compounds) over time, producing airborne toxins for years after installation. In contrast to many of the other available products, FSorb is committed to creating products that are long-lasting while avoiding any toxic materials.
Here are some of our stats worth considering:
No toxins - Will not off-gas into the air risking respiratory health. Our panels are heat-pressed with no adhesives or sealants.
Eco-friendly - Toxin-free sourcing containing no volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
Hypoallergenic - Contain no fiberglass or wool, which can be dangerous to touch or breathe
Stress-free - Committed to calming the human nervous system with health conscious products
Easy to clean, even with bleach if needed
These are significant stats and options worth considering. They are one example of how we show our commitment to your individualized health and longevity, in addition to improved sound.

FSorb panels are produced in multiple thicknesses, and each is ideal for different applications. The ½ inch is ideal for customizing and is often used in offices, universities, and retail spaces and as a tack panel surface. 1-inch panels are the most commonly used products as they have a high NRC of 0.70 with a low price point. 1” panels are ideal for many different buildings, including industrial and manufacturing spaces, gymnasiums, offices, restaurants, and K 12 schools and Universities. 2-inch panels have the highest NRC of 1.05 and are frequently used for ceilings and walls that need higher sound absorption, like in auditoriums and sound rooms. EPIQ industrial absorbers are an economical means of protecting employee hearing in manufacturing or industrial settings, and the exterior 2” acoustic panels are UV stable, weather resistant, and cleanable.
