High noise levels are not only harmful to human hearing but important instructions and emergency warnings
can go unheard in the general commotion of noisy buildings. It is a proven fact that noise reduces productivity in the workplace
and results in lack of concentration, irritation and higher stress levels.
This problem is recognised and minimum acoustic standards are set out for builders and designers of existing and new buildings. Buildings should comply with the acoustic standards set out by the British
Standards Institute (B.S.I.) and by the department for Education (D.F.E.E.). These tiles are also used in common hallways
and corridoors to absorb reverberant noise, as required in Building Regulations Approved Document E, for residential flats.
These tiles provide a simple and effective means of markedly increasing the sound absorption within rooms and halls
resulting in lower sound levels to comply with these regulations. They are easily glued with our clear web-spray adhesive
to the ceiling or wall surfaces so no special tradesmen are required so installation costs are minimum. They can be easily cut with a sharp knife.
Melamine foam is a unique, flexible, open cell foam, possessing a combination of low weight, a Class 0 fire specification and good sound absorption properties.
Produced from melamine resins, Melamine foam exhibits superior fire, temperature and chemical resistance.
Furthermore being halide free, Melamine foam when exposed to either naked flame or extreme heat does not emit any of the toxic bi-products associated with conventional polyurethane based acoustic foams.
Clean gloves should be worn when installing white melamine foam.
