See below how Acoustic ceilings & Wall panels by Ecophon can contribute to BREEAM criteria: Visual Comfort
Made of sustainable materials, most of Ecophon's white absorbent panels have a light reflectance of 85% or more. This contributes to a high daylight factor, thus facilitating compliance with the requirements in the "Daylighting" section for BREEAM certification.
To ensure daylighting, artificial lighting and occupant controls are considered at the design stage to ensure best practice in visual performance and comfort for building occupants.
Several aspect are covered by this criteria glare control, daylight, view out…
- The potential for disabling glare has been designed out of all relevant building areas.
- Good practice daylighting levels have been met.
- Floor space in the relevant building areas has an adequate vie out to reduce eye strain and provide a link to the outside.
- Internal and external lighting systems are designed to avoid flicker and provide appropriate illuminance (lux) levels.
- Internal lighting is zoned to allow for occupant control

Light reflectance on the surfaces of a room is crucial in order to maximize the use of both incidental daylight and artificial light. Most of our white absorbent panels have a light reflectance of 85% or more, thereby contributing to a high daylight factor in the rooms in which they are installed. A good use of daylight can give up to four BREEAM credits in the "Daylighting" section.
We provide Building Information Modeling (BIM) items for most of our products, making it easy to do the required daylight calculations.
