Sound Proofing

Polystyrene is a known sound deadener, and should be considered when a room needs sound treating or proofing. Home music studio? Budding guitarist in the home? Or just a nearby main road or railway station that you want to reduce noise from? Kill two birds with one stone and let your polystyrene insulation double up as a sound proofing material.

An Alternative Form of Cladding

During residential construction or renovation, polystyrene cladding can be simply and easily applied to traditional building materials such as concrete, brick and chipboard to provide an additional boost to insulation. For those concerned about energy efficiency, on a budget or both, polystyrene is an ideal choice for cladding, since it is lightweight, well priced as well as being easy to work with.
