How often do we look up, and admire the ceiling inside a building? The aesthetic and acoustic role played by a ceiling cannot be underestimated, which is why Saint-Gobain Ecophon™ is continually developing products and systems that contribute to a good working environment by enhancing peoples’ wellbeing and performance.
Ecophon Focus™, an existing range within the Ecophon family, now offers an improved range making up its most comprehensive product family to date. With a wide variety of design options with the flexibility to choose colours, edges, panel sizes and grid visibility. It offers suspended wall to wall ceilings that cater to both the visual and acoustic needs of an indoor environment.
With roots in Swedish design tradition, this range enables elements to be perfectly aligned with the overall design and indoor architecture, whether the choice is for Ecophon Focus™ to seamlessly blend in by following the lines and shapes of the room or to make a statement by creating an eye catching feature by emphasising colours and lines.
Ecophon Focus™ offers a range of ten edges, 11 sizes, 16 colours and a further six unique additional solutions for stylish level changes, wall endings and free hanging ceilings. The larger sizes are unique on the market and are currently only offered by Ecophon.
To enable people to perform to the best of their ability, every indoor environment must be designed to suit the needs of the space, whether it is an open-plan office, classroom or hospital ward. This is why Ecophon has developed Activity Based Acoustic Design – a method for acoustically designing indoor environments. This formula assists in defining the needs of an interior space based on three perspectives, namely:
By defining the needs of the space, solutions can then be achieved by using a combination of high-quality acoustic elements.
Adding to the flexibility of this range is Connect™ - Ecophon’s unique grid system in galvanised steel with excellent load bearing capacity. The various Ecophon Focus™ products can make the grid visible, partly visible or concealed and are available in white grey or black.
The updated colour range includes sixteen colours inspired by nature. Akutex ™ FT is a unique and superior surface developed by Ecophon with great light reflection properties and in combination with the glass wool, provides optimal acoustic performance. The Akutex ™ FT label carries a guarantee that the product contains superior surface technology.
