Fireproof Acoustic Panels
No ignition nor spread of flame from the front and back of foam base material when exposed to fire

BCA fire classification note: The plush coating is flame retardant, i.e., the velvet coating will ignite and is self-extinguishing when exposed to fire. Megasorber FM F panel has Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 2 and ISO 5660 Group 2 fire classification as per BCA C1.10 specifications. We recommend Megasorber FM standard range if a Group 1 fire rating is needed.

Excellent Acoustic Performance

Megasorber FM F plush acoustic panel utilises a patented fireproof sound-absorbing facing material Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canadian Patent No. 2674986, Australian Patent No. 200926197) to provide superior sound absorption.
