Soundproofing Solutions for the Building & Construction Industry

Megasorber engineers can develop customised soundproofing solutions to assist you with your building and construction projects in noise control areas such as:

  • soundproofing of plant rooms, compressor rooms, generator rooms, fan rooms
  • preventing "cross conversation" between offices, consulating rooms, meeting rooms, conference rooms
  • HVAC noise reduction and air duct lining
  • reducing footstep noise for multi story buildings
  • reducing raindrop impact noise on metal roofs

Megasorber P and Megasorber FG are the new generation of sound absorption materials for building acoustics. Megasorber has developed a unique fireproof sound absorbing material called Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No. 2009206197) for these products.

Soundmesh G8 is one of the very few acoustic materials that achieves the Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 Fire Classification.

Combined with a unique thermal-set non-combustible foam, Megasorber FM is a non-combustible sound absorbing foam and it has BCA Group 1 Classification.

With thermally bonded polyester base, Megasorber P has BCA Group 2 Classification with Average Specific Extinction Area less than 250 m2/kg.

The applications below highlight just a few of our soundproofing solutions. Talk to us about a custom soundproofing solution to meet your needs.

 

Plant Room Noise Reduction: Compressor House

Megasorber P100GR, a sound-absorbing polyester-wool with fireproof & water repellent Soundmesh® G8 acoustic facing, was used to line all the walls and ceiling of the compressor house of Orica Building, Kooragang Island.

Brewery Plant Room Noise Reduction

The consultants and the owner of the plant had set a high standard for any insulation materials to be used in the state-of-art manufacturing plant:

  • must be fireproof
  • must not absorb any water
  • MUST have water repellent and easy to clean surface
  • must not grow mould
  • must not have any loose fibres
  • must meet with the food process requirements, and
  • must be simply and easy to install, ie, low installation costs.

Megasorber engineers took up the challenge and developed Megasorber P50WR-WH(GP) for the project. The consultants and the owner checked and approved the product.

The video below shows how the Megasorber P50 acoustic panels were installed with our A100 adhesive directly onto the cool room panels at the Coopers Brewery Plant. The ceiling area is approx. 1,500 square metres.

This product is great. It used to take us weeks to install the glasswool and perforated metal sheets. Now we can walk out of the site just in a couple of days!

Chiller Room Noise Reduction

Chillers tends to generate high pitch tonal noise. It has caused discomfort to the employees in the Qantas building. After assessing the noise level and the noise frequency, the consultant specified Megasorber P50BK to be installed in the plant room and the noise problem was resolved.

Stopping "Cross Talk" Between Rooms

Megasorber DIS8, a self-adhesive vibration isolation and damping sheet, can be installed between two layers of plasterboard on a room's stud walls to stop annoying "cross talk" between rooms and increase privacy.

Rain Noise Reduction for Metal Roof

Colourbond roofing panels are usually very thin (about 0.5mm) and tend to generate high noise when impacted by heavy rain. To maintain the light-weight advantage of the metal roofing system, Megasorber light-weight damping materials absorb raindrop impact noise without adding much weight.

Both Megasorber D14 and Megasorber LD5 are widely used and the typical noise reduction is between 8dB(A) to 10dB(A). In addition, the damping materials help to increase the sound transmission loss of the roofing system. As the consultants put it, "we can kill two birds with one stone" by using Megasorber's damping products.

OPTION 1: Megasorber D14 Self-Adhesive Damping Sheet

Megasorber D14 can be applied on (1) the top side of the metal roofing panels as well as (2) under side of the metal roofing panels. Please click on this link to learn more about how Megasorber D14 helped to reduce the rain drop impact noise at Deakin University Performance Centre.

OPTION 2: Megasorber LD5 Spray-On Liquid Deadeners
