Functionality: absorb the reverberation for a multi-purpose hall—the challenge being to enhance speech clarity when
used as a performance hall and yet provide the excitement when used as sport stadium.
Appearance: must be aesthetically pleasing.
Fire safety: must have fireproof facing.
Cleaning and maintenance: product must have water-repellent facing for ease of cleaning.
Installation: product must be cost effective to install.
Acoustic performance: the acoustic panel must have a sound absorption co-efficient of 0.81 at 250 Hz and 1.13 at 500Hz, with
an overall NRC (Noise reduction coefficient) of 1.01.
To soundproof the multi-purpose hall, Megasorber P50 was installed on the ceiling. P50 is a 50mm
acoustic panel with the water-repellent, fireproof and sound absorbing Soundmesh G8 facing.
