    Basotect®: Artful Design of Sound Control

    Noise is all around us. A car passing by, a dog barking, the humming of the air conditioning. These sounds surround us constantly. For better or for worse, sounds define our surroundings, but do you ever wonder what it would be like to experience complete silence? Silence as we know it measures at 30 decibels. Thanks to the properties of Basotect, the experience of "PSAD Synthetic Desert III" measured in the range of 10-15 decibels so quiet it’s possible to hear your own heart-beat. Because Basotect can be shaped into any form an architect, interior designer or sound engineer envisions, Basotect can serve as a functional and artful component while contributing to the sound quality of any space.
