Learning environments are demanding premises acoustically speaking, a room that is being used for traditional teacher-led classes one minute can also accommodate groupwork the next; two activities that require quite different acoustic conditions. In addition, the ceiling sometimes receives intentional or unintentional physical impact.
Designed for demanding school environments
Ecophon has developed new systems specifically for schools, MasterTM Rigid A, E and Dp (patent pending). The ingenious design allows you to create flexible solutions, tailored to your classroom and specific needs. Impact resistance is another key factor and the Master Rigid tiles are secured in the grid system but remain demountable from below. In addition, the surface used, our new reinforced AkutexTM FT is a stronger surface for learning environments with the same immaculate aestetic appearance that you have come to expect from Akutex FT.
A green investment
The Master Rigid systems are all manufactured in accordance with Ecophon 3RD Technology meaning a combination of at least 70% recycled household glass content in the glass wool and the use of a new plant-based binder that replaces the traditional petroleum-based binders. We have also succeeded in reducing the thickness of the system with 50% which results in lowered transport volume and weight.
