Key contribution

Ecophon offers a wide range of products with αW values of 0.9. In the WELL standard this is regarded as equivalent to an NRC value of 0.9, meaning these products comply with the toughest requirements in Part 1-3 of the Sound Reducing Surfaces feature.

Aim

To reduce sound reverberation and maintain comfortable sound levels though absorptive ceiling and wall surfaces.

Detailed requirement

Part 1: Ceilings

The following spaces, if present, have ceilings that meet the specifications described:

  • Open workspaces: minimum NRC of 0.9 for the entire surface area of the ceiling (excluding lights, skylights, diffusers and grilles).
  • Conference and teleconference rooms: minimum NRC of 0.8 on at least 50% of the surface area of the ceiling (excluding lights, skylights, diffusers and grilles).

Part 2: Walls

The following spaces, if present, have walls that meet the NRC specifications described:

  • Enclosed offices, conference and teleconference rooms: minimum NRC of 0.8 on at least 25% of the surface area of interior surrounding walls.
  • Open workspaces: minimum NRC of 0.8 on at least 25% of the surface area of the surrounding walls.

Partitioned office spaces: partitions reach at least 1.2 m [48 inches] and have a minimum NRC of 0.8.
