Acoustic panels from Megasorber - SMC Australia were specified to provide reverberation noise control at the award-winning Gympie Aquatic Recreation Centre located in Gympie, Queensland.

The architects from Liquid Blu sought acoustic panels that delivered excellent sound absorption capabilities, were suitable for humid pool environments, offered water-repellent or waterproof facing, had the ability to withstand high temperatures, met fire safety requirements (BCA Group 1 classification), and were easy to clean and cost-effective to install.

The soundproofing solution provided by Megasorber - SMC Australia included Megasorber FM25 (25mm thick) acoustic panels with black water-repellent Soundmesh G8 facing. The acoustic panels were pre-cut to shape and fitted between the light tubes.

For the installation, the 1m x 1m FM25W-RB acoustic panels were positioned first and then the pre-cut-to-shape panels were inserted between the light tubes.

The client was extremely happy with both the look and performance of the product. This project won a Master Builders Queensland Award.
