Class O Foam Manufacturers
In modern buildings, there is often a requirement for sound absorption to be combined with non-flammable properties – and this is where Class O Foam manufacturers provide an important part of the construction process.
Fire is one of the biggest risks to a building, and construction and design companies are taking increasing precautions to ensure that if a fire starts the chances of it spreading and becoming destructive are minimised. But they also want a building to be as soundproofed as necessary, which is where manufacturers such as Rocon Foam provide the solution. Class O Foam is often found in ceiling tiles, wall panels and air conditioning and duct systems.
For the uninitiated, Class O Foam is an acoustic foam product manufactured from a fire resistant modified foam. It is designed to meet British building regulations requirements and is non-toxic, CFC and HCFC free. Its soundproofing qualities mean it is often a first choice for reducing noise. Class o foam is also durable and can be cut and shaped easily, as well as manufactured with self-adhesive backing, making it even easier to install, even in complex shapes.
As Class O Foam manufacturers we impregnate standard foam with liquid minerals. The end product is an acoustic foam that can withstand a variety of ignition sources. With these noise reduction and fire resistant properties it is popular in building construction, but it can also be used in many applications including engine bay compartments, furniture and in the automotive sector.
