UltraQuiet UltraQuiet Acoustic Tiles (on ceilings) with Basotect® for hospitality settings.
Basotect® is a flexible, open-cell foam made from melamine resin. This special structure allows sound waves to enter unimpeded. Once essentially ‘trapped’, the sound energy is decreased through friction between the repositioned air particles and angular cell struts.Materials under the Basotect® banner are very suitable for reducing reverberation in buildings (high sound absorption rating). Exhibiting high fire resistance and low thermal conductivity; making these types of foams safe and viable for auditoriums, classrooms, conference rooms, learning centres etc. Indeed, anywhere where clarity in verbal communication is paramount. Basotect® materials are used in UltraQuiet Fabric Acoustic Modules (suitable for soundproofing walls) and UltraQuiet Tiles (suitable for soundproofing ceilings), among many other applications.
Our team can also install Basotect® panels for you, in both Brisbane and Gold Coast locations.
The Stratocell® Whisper™ is a closed-cell laminated foam that provides the highest possible level of sound absorption. It’s also highly moisture-resistant so perfect for indoor environments and specialist uses like indoor swimming pools (a typical suspect for noise reverberation).Find Out More

The Australian Standard AS/NZS 2017:2000 recommends the following reverberation times for this type of room;
OFFICE BUILDINGS Private Offices Board and Conference Rooms 0.6 to 0.8s
Educational Buildings Conference Room 0.6 to 0.7s
Teleconferencing is suited to slightly lower reverberation time.
VERY IMPORTANT: Acoustic panels of any type that are used in a public area must have compliance to the Building Code of Australia for Fire Hazard Safety (BCA C1.10). ASTM (American), BS (British) or any other country’s test results are not recognised. An appropriate classification to AS 3837, AS 1530.3 or AS/ISO 9705 is required.
The integrity of acoustic structures is very dependent on installation techniques. For example, a small crack between the top of a wall and a ceiling can reduce the effective sound transmission loss of a wall from Rw 50 to Rw 40. Therefore, the use of contractors that are experienced in acoustic construction is encouraged.
Furthermore, two insulation products may have the same thermal R rating but the sound absorption of one may be entirely deficient, therefore the use of materials and equipment that are supported by acoustic laboratory test data is encouraged.
