Snowsound - Desktop Mounted Acoustic PanelThe patented Snowsound-Fiber technology is based on soft interwoven polyester fibers which are inherently fire-resistant and allow to limit the growth of bacteria due to the silver ions incorporated in the molecule. The interaction between the special acoustic fibers and the design of the objects and the support systems helps reduce annoying acoustic reverberation in rooms, while improving quality both of life and of work.
Snowsound-Fiber products have recently received Greenguard Gold certification, indicating that they are low-emitting products and do contribute to improve indoor air quality. Representative samples of products bearing the Greenguard certification mark have been independently tested and certified that they meet UL’s rigorous third-party Greenguard certification standards, which are among the most stringent in the world. To help reduce indoor air pollution, architects, designers, specifiers and building owners should choose materials and products which release the fewest possible pollutants (also known as low-emitting products). A great way to do this is by choosing products that are Greenguard certified, which means they have been screened for over 10,000 chemicals and do not emit high levels of chemical pollutants. Greenguard Gold certified products offer stricter certification criteria for sensitive individuals, such as children and the elderly, and are ideal for use in schools and healthcare facilities. Greenguard certified products also contribute toward credits within the indoor environmental quality section of the leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) building rating system.
NO FORMALDEHYDE Snowsound-Fiber has no detectable formaldehyde contents, tested according to the UNI EN 717-2.
ECO-FRIENDLY The product design has set the objective of achieving comprehensive, simple and fast recyclability at the end of the useful life. This is why Snowsound-Fiber is made entirely in 100% recyclable polyester, Velcro and sewing thread included. All components are also 100% recyclable. The superior quality of the materials and workmanship extend the product life with the consequent decrease in materials and energy consumption. Snowsound-Fiber does not contain felt, wool or other organic materials that might be difficult to recycle.
Snowsound-Fiber products, when hanging from the ceiling, all bear the CE mark, according to the harmonised technical specification EN 13964 for use as a suspended ceiling, to facilitate its sale in the European Community, pursuant to Regulation (EU) no. 305/2011. The testing and technical process that led to its CE marking ensures that the products meet quality and safety standards required by product regulations. The technical data sheets and the performance declaration provided with these types of products allow customer to assess and choose the best technical solution depending on the installation needs and requirements. FIRE Snowsound-Fiber has Italian Class 1 and Euroclass B-s2, d0 classification as to reaction to fire.
HYGIENE & HEALTH Thanks to the silver ions incorporated into the raw material of the fiber, Snowsound-Fiber limits the growth of bacteria on the surface of the fibers. The effect is lasting and is not diminished by washing or use. It also prevents the formation of unpleasant odours. Naturally, the antibacterial effect is limited to the fabric area.
MAINTENANCE Snowsound-Fiber is machine washable at 60°C and can be ironed at low temperature (max 110°), while still preserving its fire-retardant and anti-bacterial qualities.
