Architectural Soundproofing Solutions

Megasorber's acoustic engineers can develop customised soundproofing solutions for you with great architectural design flexibility. We design and manufacture fireproof sound-absorbing panels for architectural acoustic applications such as echo or reverberation reduction.

Our products can be hung up as banners, baffles and framed panels to reduce the reverberation (echo) noise in: halls, music rooms, stadiums, swimming pools, restaurants, offices and call centres.

The key component of our soundproofing panels is a patented acoustic layer Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No. 2009206197), which has unique properties:

  • fireproof - it has AS/NZS 3837 Group 1 fire rating and ISO 5660 Group 1 Fire Classification
  • excellent sound absorption capacity
  • built-in water / fluid repellent property, excellent for applications such as swimming pools, aquatic centres and outdoor areas (non water / fluid repellent version is also available if preferred)
  • extremely tough and durable

Megasorber fireproof soundproofing panels are designed to provide cost-effective solutions by combining high acoustic performance with ease to install. The sound-absorbing panels are versatile in design and provide industrial look or finish.

Megasorber acoustic panels for Swimming Pool Applications

Architects and acoustic engineers have been searching for suitable acoustic materials for aquatic centres. The key factors are as follows:

Fluid-Repellent Acoustic Facing
Water-repellent surface

Megasorber engineers took up these challenges and developed three unique products:

  1. Megasorber FM25WR-WH(DS): NRC = 0.82
    25mm thick lightweight panels with water repellent G8 on both sides (white);
  2. Megasorber FM50WR-WH (DS): NRC = 1.00
    50mm thick lightweight panels with water repellent G8 facing on both sides (white);
  3. Megasorber P50WR-WH(DS): NRC = 1.01
    50mm thick acoustic panels with water repellent G8 facing both sides (white)
