Sound-absorbing ceiling, with an exposed grid system with demountable tiles, for use in areas where humidity levels are occasionally high and frequent cleaning is required.
This system is recommended where humidity levels are occasionally high. Examples of applications: shower areas and swimming halls (under favourable and well-controlled conditions).
Ecophon Hygiene Performance A C3 is a wall-to-wall, sound-absorbing ceiling system intended for environments where there is a risk for slight contamination, and where cleaning is required on a regular basis. This system is recommended where humidity levels are occasionally high. Examples of applications: shower areas and swimming halls (under favourable and well-controlled conditions). The system is classified B1 and B5 for zone 4 according to standard NF S 90-351, and clean room-classified according to ISO 5.
The system consists of Ecophon Hygiene Performance A tiles, which have a core of high-density glass wool and a painted cleanable Akutex™ HS surface. The back of the tile is covered with glass tissue. The edges are primed. The supporting structure is a corrosion-protected, exposed Connect T24 C3 grid of specially treated steel with a high corrosion resistance.
The weight of the system is 3–4 kg/m² (20 mm) and 5 kg/m² (40 mm).
Features and benefits:
Akutex™ HS – a painted, stain-protected surface for hygiene applications, where there are high demands for wet cleaning. The surface has a high resistance to the most common detergents and disinfectants. It is therefore suitable for environments where there is a risk of contamination and where frequent wet cleaning is required, such as: the food industry, kitchen areas and the beverage industry. Primed edges.
White 500 (nearest NCS colour sample S 0500-N, 85% light reflectance).
The tiles should be secured to the grid with Connect Hygiene clips in order to withstand pressure during cleaning, and to minimize dirt traps.
Hygiene Performance A can also be installed with the C1 grid system, depending on the environment.
