Home / About Ecophon / Raw material

Choosing raw material the responsible way

All production demands raw material and the use of resources in some form. This makes it important to consider the environment as you choose your materials and resources. Ecophon has a long history of using safe ingredients and recycled content in our products.

Green glass bottleMore than 70% recycled glass

The core material in Ecophon sound absorbers is glass wool. Our glass wool consists of more than 70% recycled glass: old bottles and jars that are thus reused instead of being discarded. One traditional wine bottle is actually enough to produce the glass wool needed for one and a half regular Ecophon panels. The production facilities for the glass wool are located very close to Ecophon’s facilities, keeping transport to a minimum.

Paint

Ecophon only uses water-based paints for our acoustic panels. For our grids the paint is polyester-based. All paint components can be found on the European REACH list of safe chemicals. Read more about REACH at echa.europa.eu
