Pegboard

You see pegboard all the time in old studio shots. On the walls and on moving baffles. Is that what people used to cover up fiberglass back then? Is that a safe and effective method?

Safe … Yes, assuming there´s a fabric behind the board stopping particles from the wool escaping.

Effective … Well, depends on what the purpose is but assuming to limit the frequency range of absorption to the lower part of the spectrum; yes, depending on the thickness and perforation percentage of the board.

With the thickness and size of the holes in pegboard, the surface becomes a midrange absorber. Not of practical use in studio acoustics.

I put it to use. I needed a way to hang stuff and I was already going to build a frame for it so why not stuff it with the good old mineral wool. They seem to be all the rage because VKLA has them all over the place.
