Try these guys, ordering online is easy and if you require FRK give em a call and they'll sort it out for you.

Dense Fibre Matting Acoustic Slab - The Sound Solution, York, UK

I'd say go for the 45 or 80 Kg/m3 stuff but no denser. If your traps are gonna be extra thick, definitely the 45 instead of the 80.

If you're interested in the alternative eco friendly options in the UK:

Tŷ-Mawr Wales | Lime Plaster, Putty, Mortar, Limewash, Limecrete, Hydraulic, lime courses, glaster, wool hemp insulation

They sell hemp, sheep wool etc.

The fibre glass and mineral wool are well proven in studio environment so the safer options to go for acoustically, I took a gamble n went the eco route, will know if it paid off once its all aired out and I've installed it...

Owen Corning 703 equivalent in UK

Hi, ciao a tutti,
Since I decided to progressively buy good recording equipment, I have to face the following problem, I can hear EVERYTHING!!!!! from the fridge, to the heater, and so on...of course I can turn off them.

We live in a big barn restructured in loft..it make the acoustic very nice to record acoustic and vocals giving an atmosphere of live music....but I would like to prevent as much as possible noises and interferences that are coming from the room, not to attenuate sound emerging from the guitars..

Therefore, I'd like to build some pannel to set a vocal booth...but do not have any idea what are the Owen Corning 703 equivalent in ITALY...

Thanks for your help

Chuchi

Chruchi,

I spent around 4 hours yesterday trying to find 70X here in the UK.

I ended up with a just as god equivalent called Rockwool RW3.

Hope this saves you many hours. Hopefully you can get it in Italy. If not ordering from UK should not incur import tax as were in Europe. Allegedly.

I am also looking to make some (many!) bass traps and am in the UK, so thanks for this link. I'm wondering, why go for the less dense 45 Kg/m3 stuff?

The reason I ask is because I intend to make bass traps of varying thickness for different corners and want to choose the right absorption.

Thanks a lot

Because of the gas flow resistivity. Read this thread.

Regional

Sometimes performance is not directly related to density.

Availability is usually the biggest decider.

I use Rocksil RS60 or RS100 instead of 703 705

Isover High Performance Duct Cladding is good, affordabe, and can be found, roughly equal to 703 FRK.

In general, these products are more likely to be found in HVAC/Industrial suppliers, rather than B and Q or a Builders' Provider.

bobgolds.com has some great data on most of the options.

Personally, I would avoid this company

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

UK equivalents to OC70x would also be Rockwool RWA45 and RW3, if anyone knows of a small quantity supplier of these, that would be great! A lot of UK suppliers seem to have minimum orders, too large for what I require

Owens Corning 703 equivalent in UK

Thanks for the links and information.

It seems one must apply their brain to this subject. I may start a thread summarising my own (lack of) understanding so far...

Hey guys,

Sorry for the slight necro-bump!

I'm really trying to decide which boards to get. I've found these:

acoustic mineral wool sound absorbing infill

The 100mm thick ones for £7.00 seems like a fairly good deal. What do you reckon to them? Would they do the job of absorbing the bass?

Or is there a specific product you'd recommend for 24" superchunks ??

Whilst this thread has been resurrected I'll ask whether http://www.stsupplies.co.uk/product_...on_cavity.html will be of any use for broadband absorbers?
I've contacted the suppliers & they can only give me details of a building nature, they don't have GFR's or the such like. It certainly looks like 703!! Not that I should be using visuals to make any judgement of course!

I'm keen to move away from mineral wool on the inside of my studio, especially for the ceiling cloud because of how it can crumble over time & find its way into your equipment. Besides these batts are also very reasonably priced in comparison as well!

Local

I have used the Isover High Performance Duct Cladding successfully.
Fibreglass, 48KG, 703 territory but a bit better performing I reckon.
I am guessing the regular High Perf Batt is the same thing without the Foil.
This chart is for 50mm batts.

The Ecose stuff is great too. The names change all the time. Try Universal Slab or such.
