I'd like to reduce the bass reflections in my studio

I would use 4 inch panels of rigid fiberglass in the corners of the room, however I don't want fiberglass ( or mineral wool etc ) exposed to the air due to health concerns.  Fabric cover isn't enough in my view to reduce the health risks.

If I wrapped the fiberglass in plastic and made it airtight would the bass still be absorbed effectively?

I understand that the high frequencies wouldn't but I believe I can deal with the higher frequencies with absorbent sheets ( with natural fibers ).

Will this work?
