Greensafe signifie que GIK Acoustics utilise des matériaux isolants pour l’absorption du son contenant la technologie ECOSE. A l’inverse d’autres produits, elle est conçue à base de matériaux naturels et/ou recyclés, le tout lié par une technologie biologique sans formaldéhyde, phénol, acrylique et sans colorants artificiels ni javel ou teinture. ECOSE permet de réduire la consommation d’énergie et de polluants nécessaires à sa production et est de ce fait plus facilement recyclable que la fibre de roche et de verre. Son cœur absorbant a gagné la certification la plus rigoureuse dans l’industrie pour la qualité de l’air, le GREENGUARD™ certifié au standard CHPS (Collaborative for High Performance Schools) pour matériaux à basses émissions section 01350. Les produits GIK Acoustics traités avec la technologie ECOSE sont bons pour la qualité de l’air de votre pièce, l’environnement et votre budget.

The GREENGUARD Environmental Institute, part of UL Environment, was founded in 2001 with the mission of protecting human health and quality of life by improving indoor air quality and reducing chemical exposure. The GREENGUARD Certification Program helps manufacturers create–and helps buyers identify and trust–interior products and materials that have low chemical emissions, improving the quality of the air in which the products are used. All certified products must meet stringent emissions standards based on established chemical exposure criteria.

UL Environment, a business unit of UL (Underwriters Laboratories), acquired GREENGUARD in 2011, further advancing its mission of promoting global sustainability, environmental health, and safety. GREENGUARD Certification is broadly recognized and accepted by sustainable building programs and building codes around the world. Additionally, the GREENGUARD Product Guide serves as a free online tool for finding certified low-emitting products for offices, hospitals, schools, homes, and more.

ECOSE® Technology is a revolutionary, new, formaldehyde-free binder technology, based on rapidly renewable materials instead of petro-based chemicals. It reduces embodied energy and delivers superior environmental sustainability.

By converting bio-based materials into an inert polymer through a proprietary process, ECOSE® Technology is used to create an exceptionally strong binder that bonds mineral wool insulation strands together.This revolutionary scientific discovery eliminates the formaldehyde and phenols found in traditional binders used in various industrial processes.

Products made with ECOSE® Technology are more sustainable:

  • as they have the added benefit of using a binder, which is up to 70% less energy intensive than traditional binders. With ECOSE® Technology, rapidly-renewable bio-based materials replace the traditional chemicals;
  • as manufacturing emissions are reduced;
  • since there is no formaldehyde or phenol used with ECOSE® Technology, it contributes to improved indoor air quality of buildings.
