BASWAphon Acoustic Plaster Creates Seamless, Sound Absorbing Surfaces

BASWAphon Seamless Sound Absorbing Plaster System The Leader in Acoustic Plaster Alternatives

In an auditorium, there is no room for echoes. A speaker at a podium should be heard clearly, and the first time. Enjoy the purity of music in its most complete form and choose BASWAphon Seamless Finish Acoustic System. 

What is Acoustic Plaster?

Acoustic plaster is a low-density sound-absorbing plaster applied as a finish coat to provide a uniform finished surface. It is generally a spray-applied plaster which allows for good acoustic absorbing abilities. It is usually applied to a metal base, and lessens extra sound where applied.

BASWAphon Provides an Acoustic Plaster? 

BASWAphon Seamless Sound Absorbing Plaster System, while it works similarly to acoustic plaster, offers a unique application and extraordinary results for sound absorption. Simply put, BASWAphon Seamless Sound Absorbing Plaster System provides better sound quality and absorption than typical Acoustic plaster.

How does BASWAphon compare with acoustic plaster? 

BASWAphon has the following characteristics:

  • Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) Ratings up to 1.00
  • Seamless Up to 5,000 Sq Ft
  • Applicable on Curves, Domes, and Vaults
  • Light Weight
  • Tintable to Match Any Color
  • Moisture and Mold Resistant
  • Class A Fire Rating
  • Complete System Manufacturers Warranty

How does BASWAphon Work?

Where BASWAphon really differs from acoustic plaster is how high and low frequencies are absorbed. The BASWAphon Seamless Sound Absorbing Plaster System allows high frequencies to filter through the nonvisibly porous Finish, where the vibrations turn into heat energy when it meets the mineral wood panel. When low frequencies hit the BASWAphon Finish, the surface vibrates like a diaphragm. These vibrations are then converted to heat energy as well. BASWAphon, as compared with regular acoustic plaster, has a noise reduction coefficient rating up to 1.00. This diffusing of extreme frequencies allows for clearer sounds in any room, hall or auditorium. 

BASWAphon Improves on Traditional Acoustic Plaster Applications 
The beauty of a finish is just as important as the acoustic qualities. Where some acoustic plasters may come as boards or as a "popcorn" finish, BASWAphon creates a smooth and seamless surface up to 5,000 feet. BASWAphon follows the contours of a room, curving across domes or across arched ceilings. BASWAphon creates an elegant and effective environment for events, get-togethers and general purpose rooms.

An average Acoustic plaster application allows the client limited choices for color and will change the Acoustic properties of the finished product. With BASWAphon, match any color or multiple colors, tying the finished surfaces into the overall aesthetic of the room. In no way does the color effect the sound quality of the BASWAphon Seamless Sound Absorbing Plaster System.

When to Start Considering Acoustics

The Design Phase is the optimal time to start looking into how a space will perform Acousticly.  Not accounting for acoustics at all is linked to many issues including:

  • Affecting Building Occupants Negatively, be it Educationally, Productive Ability, or General Discomfort
  • Unusable Areas due to High Reverberation
  • Possible Liability to Client and Designer

If a designer has to go back to deal with the acoustics, additional issues including:

  • Negatively Affecting Design Intent and Aesthetics
  • Higher Acoustic Solution Costs
  • Needing to Close Area for Additional Construction
  • Possible Liability to Client and Designer.
