The Mel-Acoustic 25mm Ceiling Tile is supplied in packs of 18 and are sized 595mm x 595mm. These tiles are designed to drop stright into your existing ceiling tile grid. These Mel-Acoustic Ceiling Tiles will offer better absorption over standard ceiling tiles this reducing echo and reverberation, a key need for open plan offices. The Mel-Acoustic Ceiling Tile is a white Melamine open cell acoustic foam panel. The thickness of the panel is 29mm overall however other thicknesses are also available. These Mel-Acoustic Ceiling Tiles offer high absorption rates as well as high fire resistance. These acoustic panels have an NRC of 0.53 which is very high for a product so thin and light. The Mel-Acoustic Ceiling Tiles are mounted onto 4mm MDF to increase the rigidity of the panels.
Our Mel-Acoustic Range is the latest addition to our product stable. The range incorporates the use of Melamine Acoustic Foam manufactured by Basotect and we convert it into the various shapes and sheets. Melamine foam is a flexible open cell foam made from melamine resin. The melamine foam has a high flame resistance, low weight, good thermal properties and also has an extremely high sound absorption capacity. The other great feature of Melamine foam is that it is available in white and it will not discolour. Being halide free, Melamine foam when exposed to either naked flame or extreme heat does not emit any of the toxic by-products associated with conventional polyurethane based acoustic foams. We use a high density version being 16kg/m3. This denser version gives us better results in terms of absorption. The density we use is in some cases almost twice the density of the Melamine Acoustic Foam panels our competitors use which reduces their cost but also reduces their performance.
Our Mel-Acoustic Panels have a fire classification of Class '0' and B1. It also has no fibres so it is a non-irritant and so is safe for use in any environment. At Advanced Acoustics we have many years of experience in acoustic treatment and soundproofing with a name that is highly respected. Acoustic treatment and soundproofing is all that we do it is what we specialize in. This product is kept in stock for immediate delivery.

How Much Acoustic Treatment Should I Use?
This is a very difficult subject to address. This is because every room is different. There are a lot of factors to take into consideration. As a generalization most rooms will need between 25% and 75% of coverage. This is only for the walls and ceiling. Most people forget when treating a room that the ceiling is just as important when it comes to treating a room as the walls are.
Here is a brief overview of suggested quantities of acoustic treatment:
• Control Rooms for rock, pop, rap, hip-hop, R&B, country, techno, MIDI music, etc. usually benefit from 50% to 75% coverage and mostly absorption. Bass Trapping is also an important part of acoustic treatment for this type of room. • Control Rooms for jazz, art (classical), choral, acoustic, world and other forms of ensemble music usually benefit from 35% to 50% coverage. • Mixing rooms usually call for quite a dead area around the mixing desk itself from 50% to 85%. Around the rest of the room it needs a little absorption between 20% and 40% along with some diffusion. • “Live Rooms” will vary a lot. Some well-designed live rooms can get by with 20% coverage (or even less!). Most fall into the 25% to 50% range. The most successful Live Rooms usually have some degree of variability. This is done so that a studio is not limited to a certain number of styles of music. By making the room adjustable it gives the studio a high ability to accommodate different styles of music. • Isolation Booths usually call for quite a bit of absorption – 75% or more. If the booth is to be used for very tight vocal booth then near 100% absorption may be necessary. • Home theatres and dedicated listening rooms do require quite a large area of absorbing foam on the walls. This is mixed with some diffusion on the ceiling also. • Offices, Restaurants, Classrooms etc. will benefit from 25% and 50% of coverage of the total surface area of the walls and ceiling. We know that sometimes getting the perfect coverage is not always possible. However within reason introduction of any acoustic treatment will make an improvement to the space being considered. The closer we can get the to the ideal coverage then the better the results will be.
Almost never will 100% absorption be needed and neither is it suggested. The room, no matter what it is going to be used for will still need some ‘liveliness’ in it. If 100% absorption is used the room will feel very close, tight and very very un-natural. The room could come to feel quite claustrophobic and extremely difficult to work in. By leaving a percentage of the area of the walls bare the exposed part can be reflective thus helping to stop your recordings or practise sessions from being overbearing. This will have the outcome of much better performances and recording results.
