The BASWA acoustical plaster system is designed to reduce excessive ambient sound in a space to foster intentional human interaction and improve on the occupant’s overall experience within sophisticated architectural concepts. BASWA Phon Sound Absorbing Plaster seamlessly integrates without compromising design to create a sustainability-minded, acoustically comfortable space benefitting energy efficiency, productivity, health and wellbeing.


Research shows that acoustics is one of the leading factors that should be considered in a classroom setting. Acoustics can be manipulated in the classroom to mitigate noise, positively impacting classroom learning, speech perception, and teacher facilitation.


The proper acoustics compliment any dining experience. Using BASWA Phon, intentional sound, like guest conversation at a table, is more intelligible without losing background sound ambience. Excessive noise has also been shown to change the perceived taste of food.

Performing Arts

By absorbing excess reverberation typical within a large performing arts space, guests are able to connect and immerse in the art they’ve come to experience. Make every seat the best seat in the house with optimal acoustics achieved through sound absorption.


Architecture in the modern museum has dramatically changed with the emergence of hard surfaces, vaulted ceilings, and exhibits characterized by audio systems. By utilizing sound absorbing plaster, local sound is made intelligible without adding to environmental noise or sacrificing design.


Create beautiful, tranquil spaces that allow for guest connection and enjoyment while maintaining sound isolation. In the hotel setting, BASWA Phon mitigates noise that could be disruptive to hotel guests while making intentional connections more intelligible.


By reducing reverberant sounds within the corporate environment, BASWA Phon creates productive work spaces, fostering intentional conversation and collaboration. Additionally, the system's high density marble aggregate finish coat is an excellent reflective surface, reflecting natural light and further benefiting employee wellbeing and productivity.

Historical Renovation

Utilizing BASWA Phon in historical places preserves the architectural integrity of the historical space while improving acoustics for renewed function. The installation method of BASWA Phon Sound Absorbing Plaster allows for the introduction of acoustic material without disturbing existing architecture.


In healthcare, an emphasis on acoustic environment and natural light has been found to be paramount to patient healing. BASWA Phon creates a tranquil space conducive to patient recovery while also optimizing the natural light present in a space due to the high density marble aggregate finish coat’s highly reflective surface.

Spas and Pools

When focus and productivity matter, the introduction of sound absorbing materials supports the  ideal study and learning environment. BASWA Phon absorbs excessive reverberant sound and increases the reflection of natural light in a room to positively impact productivity and wellbeing within libraries.


Within airports, train stations, and other transportation centers, speech intelligibility is integral to the traveling process. By making speech more intelligible in the midst of bustling crowds, BASWA Phon benefits the traveling process by making public announcements such as unexpected delays or transit changes audible.


Speech intelligibility in the courtroom setting is paramount to judicial proceedings. By absorbing reverberation within the courtroom, BASWA Phon helps to ensure that speech is heard clearly despite an array of hard surfaces typical within the courtroom.

"The design of the atrium as well as the BASWA Phon product helped create a comfortable acoustical environment that greatly improves social interaction and overall occupant comfort. Furthermore, the overall acoustical performance within the atrium provides the Baylor Business School with the flexibility to utilize this inspirational space for a variety of function."

"For over a decade Angelini Plastering been installing acoustic plaster systems, including each of the top three brands. Aside from the outstanding performance BASWA Phon provides, even more importantly to my company, is the relationship with BASWA acoustic. They always have the first pulse on projects in my region and offer top technical support in the field. I can’t begin to express how rapidly they turn out submittals, LEED information, SDS, and color coded detailed RCPs. We feel as though we are one big team."

"The systems we installed in our new café and conference room are incredible. Everyone who experiences the space is slack jawed. Many of the other tenants in our building experience sound issues and are excited to use the product in their spaces as well."

"Because OCP Contractors was already a Certified Installer, we were able to self-perform the work and it helped get the job awarded to OCP. We were glad we could provide the owner with an exceptional product that changed the dynamics of the space."

"The appropriate acoustical environment for speech privacy in the open office area was critical to creating a successful space for Gehry Partners’ design team. The office layout was designed without workspace dividers. Although the desks were relatively far apart, the ambient noise due to HVAC (typically offering “white noise” masking) would be very low. Speech privacy was clearly going to be an issue. Compared to the other options that were being entertained, BASWA Phon had the highest sound absorption properties and offered Gehry’s team the clean, uncluttered, monolithic ceiling design they required. We were very pleased with the quality of workmanship within these areas; the open office acoustics are exceptional and we understand the users are very pleased."

"BASWA Phon provided Siebein Associates with a seamless sound absorbent surface that met HOK’s design intent while offering exceptional performance which helped to reduce focused sound reflections, reduce overall reverberant noise levels and control the transmission of sounds from one level to another in the large open volume of the atrium maintaining manageable sound levels even on busy days."

"BASWA Phon is a great product that allowed us to create an all-glass circular party room for 600 people where they can actually hear each other talk! The appearance of the great inverted dome is seamless. We asked for an 'impossible' blurred color transition at the edges. Developing a new spray technique to satisfy our request, BASWA acoustic's skilled Certified Installers executed our design beautifully."

"Even on the very crowded opening days and events of last week, the sound absorption worked marvelously. Bravo."
