Megasorber FM H range acoustic panels are hydrophobic,
waterproof and lightweight. They are specifically designed for aquatic centres, swimming pools, outdoor applications,
marine applications, hospitals, scientific laboratories, and anywhere the product may be fully exposed to water
or wet environments.
Megasorber FM H acoustic panels consist of a hydrophobic acoustic base foam and a unique fluid/water repellent Soundmesh G8 facing. The product repels water from all sides. The facing
is water repellent, the foam on the back and on the edges is hydrophobic. Even when the product is cut or
trimmed, it remains fully water repellent.
Megasorber FM H acoustic panels have Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 fire classification as per BCA C1.10 specifications
and ISO 5660 Group 1 fire rating. The panels are non-combustible and fire-safe.
No ignition nor spread of flame from the front and back of FM panel when exposed to fire
Superior Acoustic Performance
Megasorber FM H panels utilise a patented fireproof sound absorbing facing material ‘Soundmesh G8’ to provide maximum sound absorption (U.S. Patent No.
8167085, Canadian Patent No. 2674986, Australian Patent No. 200926197). Megasorber FM H panels are designed with
superior ability to absorb sound.

Standard thickness: 25mm and 50mm.
12mm, 38mm, 75mm and 100mm are non-standard thickness and are made to order.
Customized thickness is also available and minimum order quantity applies.
Standard sheet size is 1.2m x 2.4m. Other sheet sizes available are 1.2m x 1.2m and 1.2m x 0.6m. We can cut to
any size and any shape using our CNC cutting technology, however, cutting charges apply.
Water/fluid* repellent facing is recommended for easy surface cleaning. *Please note: does not include petroleum or solvent based fluids.
G8 facing may have some stripy appearance. Hairline creases may appear on the facing when handling.
There are colour variations between batches, especially for the grey and sandstone colours. Soundmesh G8 facing made from different batches may be difficult to colour match.
Thickness tolerance is ±5% and sheet dimension tolerance is ±1%.
Other sheet sizes available are: 1200mm x 1200mm and 1200mm x 600mm (1195mm x 595mm if packed in boxes). We can cut panels to any size and any shape using our CNC cutting technology, however, extra cutting charges apply.
Megasorber FM panels will expand and contract when temperature changes, in the same manner as common materials such as concrete and metal. These thermal movements may cause the Soundmesh G8 facing to crease. The creases on Soundmesh G8 will not affect the acoustic performance of the product.
Standard Facing Colours
White, grey, sandstone and black. MOQ (minimum order quantity) applies for custom colours.
There are colour variations between batches, especially for the grey and sandstone colours. Soundmesh G8 facing made
from different batches may be difficult to colour match.
Hydrophobic Base Foam
Available in off-white and light-grey. Default colour is off-white.
Restricted and reportable substance as per GMW3059: Nil
IMPORTANT NOTICE AND DISCLAIMER
Specifications are subject to change without notice. Please contact us for the latest version. "Fireproof", "Non-flammable",
"Non-combustible" means the product has successfully passed AS/NZS 3837, IS0 5660-1, ASTM E1354 Group 1 fire rating (AWTA test report No. 7-566397-CV). Patented Soundmesh G8 (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada
Patent No. 2674986, Australia Patent No. 2009206197). The data listed in this data sheet are typical or average
values based on tests conducted by independent laboratories or by the manufacturer. They are indicative only of
the results obtained in such tests and should not be considered as guaranteed maximums or minimums. Materials and
installation methods must be tested under actual service to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
"Aussie engineered and made" means the products are engineered and made in Australia with globally sourced materials.
The following recommendations are for general guidance only. Installation methods must be tested under actual service conditions to determine their suitability for a particular purpose.
We recommend installing panels in accordance with the appropriate procedures as approved by Megasorber.
1. Keep Sheets Flat
Sheets must be kept flat during the handling and installation process. Bending or folding sheets may create
creases on the Soundmesh G8 facing. Once formed, these creases are difficult to remove.
The product can be hand-cut by a knife or machine-cut by a bench saw or rotating blade cutter with a fine tooth blade.
Knife cut by hand: we recommend using a sharp Stanley and/or serrated knife.
We recommend wearing gloves during cutting. The Soundmesh G8 facing edges may irritate or cut the skin.
3. Direct-Fix: Installing Panels with Adhesives
We recommend Megasorber A200 adhesive to install Megasorber FM panels onto uneven surfaces such as
concrete slabs, plasterboard and brick walls.
Substrate Surface Preparation
The surface must be flat, dry and free of oil, dust, grease and other contaminants. Clean substrate with Megasorber
AC5 or similar.
