Melamine Acoustic Foam

Melamine’s low density and flexibility provide a practical material, convenient to handle, easy to cut and install, either to original equipment or on-site projects. This outstanding versatility, coupled with choice of complimentary acoustic materials, e.g. damping sheets, barriers and facings, allows Melamine foam to be used in a wide range of industrial and commercial applications where superior reverberation control is required.

Since wood is a natural product, our Woodsorption range of acoustic wood panels creates a naturally aesthetic solution to noise control. The unique features of these sound absorbing wood panels give a warm organic appearance offering a finish to compliment any area. Surface choices include real wood veneers, wood print laminates and paint finished timber sound absorbing panels.

Woodsorption panels are suitable for almost every application including use in schools, studios, reception areas, lecture theatres, offices and commercial buildings. Woodsorption panels are exceptionally durable and abuse resistant making them particularly appropriate for areas that may require a high degree of impact resistance such as sports and recreation halls, police interview rooms, court rooms, offices, reception areas, factories and workshops.

Woodsorption sound absorbing panels consist of a finishing surface, base core board and black acoustic fleece backing. The base core board is 18mm thick MDF sheet with a finish laminated to its front face and black acoustic fleece adhered to its rear face. Woodsorption panels are manufactured with tongue and groove joints. Thanks to the precision of the tongue and grooves a perfect finish is achieved when Woodsorption panels are installed.

Echosorption Plus also referred to, as Echosorption II are stick-on acoustic tiles, which are extremely lightweight and easy to install.

These sound absorbing tiles provide a higher sound absorption performance. Echosorption Plus acoustic tiles are particularly effective at reducing reverberated noise. Their ease of application and durability make them a popular choice for schools, offices, sports halls, music studios, lecture theatres, multi-purpose halls, interview rooms and shooting ranges. At only 30mm thick, these improved sound absorbing Class 0 non-flammable sound absorbing tiles are ideal for fitting to ceilings with minimum loss of height.

The panels are made up with a sound absorbing acoustic mineral wool core faced with a highly efficient sound absorbing painted surface. The tile is laminated to an aluminium foil backing to enhance stability. The edges of each tile are chamfered so no jointing strips are necessary.

Wallsorption sound absorbing acoustic wall panels are a high specification acoustic panel system designed to extensively transform open plan offices, conference suites, studios and interview rooms into workable environments. They are supplied fabric covered and are durable, fire resistant; visually pleasing and their sound absorbing qualities offer excellent acoustic performance. Please click to see our Fabric colour chart.

The Wallsorption panels are finished in a high quality acoustically transparent fabric available in 20 standard colours. We are proud to say this fabric is recycled and is further testament to our commitment to the environment. If required, the panels can also be used for displaying posters as they easily take pins. There are three standard versions of Wallsorption panels.

Reduction of sound reverberation is important in large open plan areas such as restaurants, conference rooms and shopping malls. To address this problem, we have now introduced a sound absorbing panel that can have a photograph or image of your choice printed upon it.

When mounted on a wall, Photosorption will effectively absorb noise at that point and efficiently reduce the 'bounce back' of the sound. This is particularly effective in areas where a large amount of noise is generated and affected by the surrounding hard surfaces of walls, floors and ceilings and the more there are installed the greater the reduction will be of reverberated noise.

Photosorption sound absorbing panels have a very efficient, highly absorptive inner core of semi rigid acoustic mineral wool. Combined with the digitally printed acoustically transparent polyester covering, the panel presents a very attractive sound absorber that will aesthetically and acoustically enhance restaurants, museums, galleries, libraries, conference rooms, offices, dining rooms, cinemas, music venues, shopping malls, airports, banks, classrooms, reception areas, retail environments and many others.

Steelsorption sound absorbing perforated wall panels are high specification acoustic panels designed to extensively reduce noise nuisance and reverberation in an industrial working environment. Steelsorption is a practical solution to your sound control requirements and are durable, fire resistant, and strong and their sound absorbing qualities offer excellent acoustic performance.

These highly efficient sound absorbing panels are designed for easy installation into factories, workshops, plant rooms, test bays and many other industrial working areas where a high degree of noise may be generated.

Applications for Acoustic Foam is found in a wide variety of noise control treatments such as machinery enclosures, plant machinery and cabs, office equipment and domestic appliances. Acoustic Foam is normally employed as an internal lining to machinery guards or enclosures. Also available with a tough polyurethane film face to protect from dust and fluid contaminants.

Please call 0845 363 7131 to enquire.

The absorption element of Acoustic Foam is provided by a special grade of polyurethane foam produced to an exacting structural specification for maximum sound absorption.

Supplied plain or with a self-adhesive backing.

Fire Retardant Acoustic Foam is totally non-flammable. It can be used in the same way as ordinary acoustic foam but is far more versatile. It is of particular use in heating and ventilation ducts, machinery guards and enclosures and even buildings. It also offers good thermal insulation and has the advantage over other types of insulation of not losing dust or fibre particles.

PART E Compliant Information

As they are also a Class 'C' absorber they are also suitable for the ceilings of stairways and other common ceiling areas within flats to comply with the latest Building Regulation requirements for sound absorption and for reduced reverberated noise.

Legislation has now been introduced to control noise and reverberated sound in schools and other public buildings as described in Building Bulletin 93 (BB93( as Part E of the Building Regulations.

The Approved Document E also contains guidance on the installation of sound absorbing insulation to common areas of buildings such as found in flats. The easiest way to comply with these new rules is to fit a Class C performance sound absorber on the ceilings of these areas. The requirement is to fit a Class C sound absorber to cover an area of not less than 50% of the ceiling area in the common area of all floors including stairways.

- Acoustic Ceiling Tiles
