Acoustical Solutions in Gypsum
The broad spectrum of acoustic boards offer virtually unlimited design scope for creating highly attractive rooms and buildings.
On the other hand, the acoustic properties of the boards are ideal for planning and designing optimum room acoustics. Saint-Gobain Gyproc acoustic systems meet the most demanding requirements in terms of material properties, variety of shapes and acoustic results.
Whether jointless and continuous or in the form of a suspended ceiling — perfect solutions are available for all applications in many appealing designs and edge shapes, for lay-in installation, invisible rail systems and the particularly cost-effective visible rail systems for lay-in installation.
In combination with non-perforated Saint- Gobain Gyproc boards, Saint-Gobain Gyproc acoustic ceilings offer unlimited options for customized design.
Acoustic and Aesthetic Solutions in Gypsum
Good room acoustics and healthy air are critically important for people’s well-being.
All the more so when you consider that we spend up to 90% of our time in enclosed spaces – whether at home, in the office, at kindergarten or school, in auditoriums or leisure facilities such as sports clubs.
While we can clearly perceive good and bad room acoustics, we are often exposed to invisible pollutants, e.g. through vapours from carpets and other floor coverings, paints or adhesives, without realizing it. Air pollutants such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs) can impact our well-being and significantly damage our health.
Such VOCs, in particular formaldehyde, can be immediately – and most importantly – permanently removed from room air by the new Saint-Gobain Activ’Air acoustic boards. Thanks to their unique active agent, Saint-Gobain Activ’Air boards can permanently reduce formaldehyde by 60%. A lasting effect which consistently ensures very good room air and thus greater well-being.
Maintenance Free and Hygiene Modular Solutions
The comprehensive range in Maintenance free solutions includes Dew drop and Granular. These are PVC laminated tiles and provide superior finish with great performance.
Polyshield helps in maintaining hygiene besides being a maintenance-free product. It is recommended for use in clean rooms, hospitals and in areas where superior maintenance besides hygiene is required.
Aesthetics Modular Solutions
Gypsum Modular solutions for Aesthetics help in creating a visually appealing look for the interior spaces. These are available in pre-painted panels and unpainted panels.
The pre-painted panels come with anti-mould growth and anti-yellowing properties. These combine economy with great aesthetics. The unpainted panels have semi-perforations in random pattern. These combine economy with great durability.
Functional Modular Solutions
Fire and Moisture among other parameters play a crucial role in selection of the tile in living spaces.
Gyproc Functional Modular Solutions, in order to cater to the needs of this segment, provide tiles with specific functionality like Gyproc Fireline, Gyproc Moisture Resistant and Gyproc Foil Black that adhere to the fire, moisture and other parameters as needed for the living spaces.
With the addition of glass fiber and water-repellent additives, Gyproc Fireline and MR tile respectively, provide superior performance and deliver excellent results.
Metal Ceiling Solutions
Ceiling Solutions in Metal is a unique design variant that architects opt for. Metal Ceilings provide unique Aesthetic appeal besides adhering to the criteria of Acoustics.
Metal Ceiling Solutions are available in two systems: Lay In and Clip In. Besides, these are also available as Pre-Painted panels and Powder coated panels. Plain systems are recommended for Aesthetic appeal and Perforated Systems are recommended for Aesthetics along with Acoustics.
Mineral Fiber Modular Solutions
Ceiling tiles in grids is a very popular way to create highly aesthetic appeal besides functional benefits for the spaces.
Mineral Fiber Tiles, due to the advantages of numerous design possibilities, good acoustic absorption and aesthetic appeal in terms of edge possibilities, offer a good value for money proposition to Architects and Clients.
Celotex Pin, Celotex Fine-fissured and CertainTeed SandMicro come in three edge patterns. These offer excellent sound absorption properties, special anti-sag resistance, better fire-resistance and good light reflectance making them the best product offering in its class worldwide. These tiles are suitable for a wide variety of applications like office spaces, showrooms, shopping centers, hospitals etc.
Gyproc T-Grid & Accessories
Gyproc T-Grids are an integral part of our Ceiling systems. The framework is specially designed making them stronger, lighter and easier to use.
Gyproc T-Grid gives adequate resistance against rusting, warping or twisting, giving better finished results. Accessories like Main-T, Cross-T, Wall Angle, Level Clip, Rawl Plug and Soffit Cleat help in framing the grid structure and maintaining the strength of the system.
Gyproc Grids are available in Matrix, Micro, Bolt Slot and Pro-1 ranges making the choice of the customer flexible. Depending on the design of the spaces and the type of the edge chosen for the tile, appropriate grid system (like Gyproc Matrix Grid for Square Edge) is selected.
How does Activ’Air work?
Saint-Gobain Activ’Air boards contain a unique organic mineral substance. It can absorb formaldehyde from room air, convert it into harmless, inactive compounds and permanently bind them in its structure. This ensures a sustainable reduction in formaldehyde without any risk of re-emission.
Proven long-term effect
Saint-Gobain Activ’Air is an innovative material with proven performance you can rely on. In a long-term test conducted in accordance with international standards, it was proven that the installation of Saint-Gobain Activ'Air permanently removes 60% of formaldehyde from room air after just a short time and without any risk of re-emission. An important contribution to healthy construction which offers greater living comfort and has a long-term positive effect on people’s well-being. Current simulation calculations also prove that Activ'Air boards remain effective (for atleast) 50 years.
Through the circulation of air in the room formaldehyde comes into contact with the board, which converts the harmful substances into inert compounds.
Activ’Air Air Cleaning Power
Activ’Air surface area needed to achieve the air cleaning power effect. Installing Saint-Gobain Activ’Air and other Saint Gobain Activ’Air products enables the permanent removal of up to 80% of formaldehyde from the room air.
You can use the adjacent table to calculate how many square metres of Saint-Gobain Activ’Air you should install in a room.
