Sound Absorbing Panels for Architectural Applications

Sound Absorbing Panels that Support Interior Design.

MaxBell Acoustic PJA - Acoustic Panels that can be Painted.

Sealed, Non-Porous, Noise Absorbing Wall and Ceiling Panels that can be installed in a similar manner to plasterboard and enable a Seamless Painted finish.

MaxBell Acoustic PrLA -  Discrete Acoustic Panels that can be Printed.

Sealed, Non-Porous, Noise Absorbing Acoustic Panels featuring a High Resolution, High Quality Printed or Timber Laminate Finish. 


Unique Acoustic Absorption Mechanism 

The MaxBell Acoustic panel engineered construction enables the surface to minutely move sympathetically with sound waves and dampen impacting sound energy.

The installed panels are able to provide very good noise absorption at low and medium frequencies.

MaxBell Acoustic panels have a Sealed Surface that is easy to Clean and Disinfect.

Installed panels are easily cleaned using Detergents and Disinfectants used in Clinical Environments.

The finished surfaces are resistant to scrubbing and interior cleaning methods.

Renewable Content

Panels are manufactured from greater than 50% recycled PET material

Key Product Attributes

MaxBell Acoustic panels are a unique product based on a sealed non-porous laminate finish. The panels provide excellent sound absorption with either a high quality, high resolution printed finish PrLA or as a seamless painted finish PJA. The panel surface is extremely durable, chemical resistant and easy to clean.

MaxBell Acoustic panels have been developed and are manufactured in Australia, from greater than 50% recycled PET fibre.

Water Resistant Laminate

MaxBell Acoustic Panels utilise a unique  broad-band resonance approach - incorporating a high strength non-porous  PET laminate to absorb noise. The unique construction enables the surface to move sympathetically with sound waves and dampen impacting sound energy.

The non-porous, sealed surface of the panels are water resistant and easy to clean using a range of chemicals including strong bleach solutions. The MaxBell Acoustic panel provides an excellent solution for clinical interiors where hygiene is important, including hospitals, medical centres and aged care facilities.

The panels are also ideal for high humidity environments including swimming pools, food preparation and wet areas.

The panels are manufactured from PET and are chemically resistant to detergents, bleach, oil based products and brake fluid.


Acoustic Panels that Support Interior Design                                                                     Combining Acoustic Ambience with a Clean Architectural Aesthetic.

MaxBell Acoustic panels have been developed to work with the design direction of an architect for a given application, not to take prominence. Many acoustic panels are trying to force a design solution based on a porous or perforated surface in order to achieve acceptable acoustic performance.

MaxBell Acoustic panels enable a designer to choose a colour palette or image with a smooth, seamless finish and still achieve a comfortable acoustic ambience. The panels free interior designers from trying to incorporate a surface or supporting framework based on acoustic performance, rather than a preferred design aesthetic.

MaxBell Acoustic panels are ideal for Public, Commercial and Educational spaces, as well as Medical Clinics, Aged Care Facilities and Hospitals, where high intensity cleaning schedules require wall and ceiling acoustic surfaces that are easily wiped clean with liquid based disinfectants and detergents.

The panels work well with Heritage applications where a high quality acoustic product can be incorporated with period features seamlessly. The product is designed to be installed on both walls and ceilings and can be blended with ornate cornices, ceiling roses and coffered finishes.

Acoustic Post Treatments where a custom printed or timber laminate surface will provide excellent sound absorption as discrete panels.


 MaxBell Acoustic PJA Panel

Designed to be installed with plasterboard for a painted seamless finish 

Architects and Interior Designers can choose from all available colours using standard acrylic paints. Speciality paints, including 2 part systems, offering protection for high intensity clinical environments are also suitable.

MaxBell Acoustic PJA panels can be manufactured with a bevilled rebate around the full perimeter of the panel. The bevilled edge allows the PJA panel to be set using similar methods to plasterboard and provides a seamless paintable finish.

Panels are available at the same thickness as either 10 mm or 13 mm plasterboard and are designed to be to be installed in conjunction with plasterboard.
