Key contribution

With a keen eye on optimizing energy efficiency, Ecophon offers systems for the acoustic treatment of thermally activated building systems (TABS) buildings that allow for good acoustics without compromising energy-saving features or thermal comfort.


To ensure that appropriate thermal comfort levels are achieved through design, and controls are selected to maintain a thermally comfortable environment for occupants within the building.

Requirement summary

A thermal modelling of the building has to be carried out, setting local comfort criteria in line with ISO7730:2005. It needs to include both winter and summer comfort. This modelling is analyzed to define the temperature control strategy of the building (heating, cooling systems): zoning, level of occupant control, interaction within the different systems, and information of users

Our contribution

In green buildings with thermally activated building systems (TABS), the high thermal mass of concrete slab floors is used for equalizing temperature variations in the building. In order for the heat to be transferred to and from the concrete slabs, fully covering acoustic ceilings cannot be installed.

To create a good acoustic environment in a TABS building, a combination of free-hanging absorbent panels, wall-mounted absorbers and sound-absorbing screens is used. This solution provides low energy consumption, high comfort and good room acoustics.

Ecophon offers a number of products and system solutions for TABS buildings. Combining products from the Ecophon Master ™ Matrix, Ecophon Solo ™ and Ecophon Akusto series achieves, good acoustics without significantly affecting the TABS effect.

Ecophon's wide product range brings great design possibilities – both acoustically and visually – and Ecophon's acoustic experts are happy to contribute with good advice on how to combine and place our products for best results.
