See below how Acoustic ceilings by Eurocoustic can contribute to LEED criteria: Low-Emitting materials
To reduce concentrations of chemical contaminants that can damage air quality, human health, productivity, and the environment.
This credit covers volatile organic compound (VOC) emissions into indoor air and the VOC content of materials, as well as the testing methods by which indoor VOC emissions are determined. Different materials must meet different requirements to be considered compliant for this credit. The building interior and exterior are organized into seven categories, each with different threshold for compliance. Walls, ceilings and flooring are defined as building interior products; each layer of the assembly, including paints, coatings, adhesives, and sealants, must be evaluated for compliance. Insulation is tracked separately.
Read the detailed requirement for Low-Emitting Materials.
Our ceilings (tiles and grids) emit very little VOC and are all classified A or A + according to the French legislation on VOC emissions.
The emission tests are carried out according to the ISO 16000-9 protocol with analysis of the ISO 16000-3 formaldehyde and ISO 16000-6 VOC. These performances are confirmed by analyzes carried out by an independent laboratory as requested in Option 2 of this target.
To meet the EN 13964 standard (suspended ceiling product standard specifying the requirements and test methods), the Eurocoustic ceilings are classified E1 according to EN 717 - 1 & 2 (best possible class for formaldehyde releases).
