Reducing Reverberation Noise for an Indoor Swimming Pool Complex
Megasorber provides an innovative soundproofing product ideal for the noisy, hot, humid conditions of indoor aquatic centres: the hydrophobic/waterproof
and fire-safe FM H acoustic panel. This sound-absorbing panel is attractive, lightweight and easy to cut and install.
Traditionally, the following sound absorbing materials were used for indoor swimming pools and aquatic centres:
Mineral fibre tiles: such tiles tend to have low NRC (typical NRC is between 0.4 to 0.6); tend to absorb moisture when exposed to water;
stain when exposed to condensation on the back of the tiles; loose mechanical strength and become distorted in humid environments.
Open cell foam: tend to absorb and hold water; the weight increases dramatically once saturated with water; loose their acoustic performance
once the open calls are filled with water or dust.
Glassfibre wrapped with plastic. While the plastic protects the glass wool or mineral wool from getting wet, it is reflective to sound
and prevents the sound from being absorbed by the glass wool or mineral wool.
Modern-day aquatic centres demand a new generation of sound absorbing material. Megasorber FM H acoustic panels meet this demand.
Key Features of FM H Acoustic Panels
Hydrophobic / waterproof: panel consists of a hydrophobic foam base and water-repellent Soundmesh G8 facing;
hence the product will NOT absorb any water from the facing, edges or the back.
Fire-safe: Megasorber has Building Code Australia (BCA) Group 1 Fire Classification as per BCA C1.10 specification
and ISO 5660 Group 1 classification.
Superior acoustic performance: utilises patented technology (U.S. Patent No. 8167085, Canada Patent No. 2674986, Australia
Patent No. 2009206197), with NRC up to 1.0.
Extremely light-weight, tough and durable
Aesthetically pleasing. Available in four standard colours: white, sandstone, grey and black G8 facing. Customised
colour is also available (minimum order quantities apply).
Easy to cut and install: Typical fixing systems are:
Direct-fix with Megasorber A200 adhesive
Suspended between purlins
