It looks a bit like the bottom half of an egg container, repeated many times. After it has been used it is disposed of as medical waste, but there is usually nothing whatever wrong with it. New, it is undoubtedly available from medical supply places, but is probably quite expensive because it says 'Medical Use' on the label.   John   Bart Kleineweber wrote: > > Dear List: > > Does anyone know where I can buy this "peaked foam" that was spoken > of on this thread? > > Sincerely, > Bart Kleineweber

Like anything medical, new ones would be very expensive. Most larger cities would have foam shops, where you can buy foam mattresses, pillows, mattress tops etc. They would be the first place that I would look. If you have a boat building shop in your area, check with them as they use some foams for sound control, which is what you are looking for = anyway.

I don't = recall the fire proof abilities, but I do know that some are "proofed" (like Curtains in a theatre) as required by law. This is sometimes done either prior to or after installation. I do know that they get the sound down in a small room, but I have never tried it in an organ chamber on the blower.   Good Luck   Michael Garay   The New Kid on the Block
