Indoor air labels and certificates

Over hundreds of thousands of years, our ears have evolved to provide perfect hearing outdoors, in nature. But today most of us spend up to 90% of our time indoors, in environments that are not suitable for the human ear.

Certification logosThe reason Ecophon exists is to enhance people’s wellbeing and performance, where they work and communicate.

In schools, our solutions make it possible for students and teachers to communicate with each other, and for children to remember what they have learned.

In offices, our solutions are easily adapted to suit all the tasks of everyday business, such as deep concentration, talking on the phone, meetings, teamwork or brainstorming.

In healthcare settings our solutions make it possible for patients to rest, sleep and recover. At the same time they make it easier for nurses and doctors to perform their tasks and to hear all crucial information.

The importance of certificates

When it comes to the indoor environment you can rest assured that our systems are completely safe. Our sound absorbers are continuously tested to make sure they meet the relevant indoor air labels. Our 2nd generation glass wool products comply with French VOC A and Finnish M1. 

 

TABS in a school environmentSupporting thermal comfort

In buildings with concrete core cooling, TABS (Thermally-Activated Building Systems), the ceiling cannot be fully covered with acoustic panels. For thermal transfer reasons, heat must be allowed to pass between the room and the concrete slab. Ecophon has ceiling systems that are ideal for TABS buildings, for example Ecophon Solo™.

Based on extensive studies and tests, using these systems with a ceiling coverage of 60 per cent will maintain thermal performance and at the same time provide a good acoustic environment.

And if you combine them with Ecophon Akusto™ you can achieve an atmosphere that is very pleasing to both the ear and the eye.
