Ecophon solutions are developed to meet the strictest requirements for indoor air emissions. Most of our products are enrolled in the Indoor Air Comfort certification programme. They not only certify that our products meet the toughest emission requirements, but regularly inspect our factories to make sure the same standard is being met batch after batch.
We select raw materials that ensure all our products comply with the REACH regulation of the European Chemicals Agency (ECHA). Our absorbers are made with mineral wool certified by the European Certification Board for mineral wool products (EUCEB) for maximum quality and safety. We go even further, with third-party verified Health Product Declarations for a selection of our products.
The glass wool in our acoustic absorbers is made from recycled glass, giving them a high post-consumer recycled content and our tiles are fully recyclable with SoundCircularity™ Recycling Service.
