Foamsorption Acoustic Tiles


Foamsorption are extremely lightweight sound absorbing tiles made from high technology soft sound absorbing foam material on a melamine resin base.  White in colour they are designed to be bonded onto existing or new ceilings and high level wall surfaces, have virtually no weight and are very simple to fix.  Foamsorption tiles are fibre and CFC free as well as having excellent fire resistant ratings.  These tiles are used with great success in applications such as studios, offices, community and multi-purpose halls, cinemas, classrooms and shooting ranges etc.

Noise control Applications

Due to its greater surface absorption are allied with its low weight and Class 'O' fire resistance rating, Foamsorption tiles can be used safely in virtually any building.

Acoustics  The special open face pattern is the main reason why Foamsorption tiles outperform other acoustic tiles.  This leads to higher sound absorption in a building resulting in greater sound reduction.

    Key Soundproofing Benefits

  • Excellent Sound Absorption Qualities
  • Easy to fit
  • Fire resistant

  • Fitting Instructions

    The installation of all Foamsorption tiles is simple and quick hence the cost of installation is extremely low. Foamsorption tiles are simple to cut with a sharp knife and glued into position with our special adhesive.

    Foamsorption adhesive allows for accurate alignment and location of tiles.  A 5mm shadow gap should be left between the tile joints which help to give a perfect optical impression.  Clean gloves should be worn when handling and installing the tiles.

  • Make sure both the tiles and the surface to which the tiles are being applied are free from dust and dirt.
  • Cut the end of the adhesive tube to produce a bead.
  • Place the Foamsorption Tile pattern side down on a clean, flat surface.
  • Apply a bead of adhesive along all four edges of the tile.
  • Apply three more beads of adhesive within the tile area (see diagram)
  • Immediately press the tile against the surface it is to be adhered to and position as required.

    FOAMSORPTION acoustic tiles are produced in pairs, ie. handed positive and negative.  When bonding these tiles, start in the centre of the area and work outwards.  Each row should commence with the opposite hand than its predecessor and alternate from row to row.

    FOAMSORBA acoustic tiles should be stored in a completely dry and room temperature environment.  They are designed for installation under standard occupancy conditions from 10-25oC and not more than 60% RH in an enclosed building.

    The contractor shall be responsible for the examination and acceptance of all conditions and project suitability prior to the acoustic tile installation.
