Ecophon has optimised its Hygiene range of acoustic solutions, to make it easier to specify the solution that best meets a project’s specific acoustic and hygiene demands.
Designed to meet all the requirements of demanding healthcare environments, the range includes options suitable for areas where deep or frequent cleaning is required.
Ecophon Hygieneä for healthcare comprises the Clinicä, Meditecä, Protecä, Performanceä and Advanceä product groups and is suitable for use both in new build and refurbishment projects. The range allows specifiers on healthcare projects to select the products that not only meet the required levels of acoustic performance but also the necessary cleanability, durability, particle repellence and bacterial resistance.
Ecophon Hygieneä includes products that meet all levels of cleanability from a dry vacuum and wet cleaning with a microfibre cloth to advanced techniques that include chemical, pressure, steam and hydrogen peroxide vapour cleaning. This means specifiers can select the most cost-effective option for the requirements of each area – allowing budget allocation to be optimised.
All products within the Ecophon Hygieneä range have been tested and certified according to ISO 846 for resistance to both fungal and bacterial growth. As with all Ecophon’s products, the Ecophon Hygieneä range has been engineered to support excellent indoor air quality (IAQ) to further contribute to a healthy indoor environment. The range has been independently tested to confirm it meets the highest standards for emissions including Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC) and formaldehyde. All Ecophon products meet French VOC A or VOC A+ standards - currently the highest level of certification for VOCs.
Alan Crampton, Sales Director at Ecophon said “The importance of acoustics in healthcare environments cannot be overestimated. Research has shown that good acoustics can lower hospital readmission rates by 56% as well as reducing patient stress and improving communication both between hospital staff and with patients. The Ecophon Hygieneä range makes it simple for specifiers to select the right product both in terms of the acoustics and requirements specific to the application. With our commitment to testing and certification of products on criteria including durability, chemical resistance, bacterial resistance, fire safety and IAQ, customers can also be assured of the products’ performance.”
