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).
