All panel models in the Spigoacustic and Spigotec catalogues are A+ wood acoustic panels. They bear this label from the start of their manufacture, when they were just an MDF board base. What does this label mean? What advantages does it offer?
A+ is a widely-used, volatile substances emission or air quality label. In the Spigoacustic and Spigotec brands, A+ rating guarantees that ous wood acoustic panels do not emit significant amounts of harmful chemicals such as formaldehyde, acetaldehyde, toluene, xylene, styrene, tetrachloroethylene, ethylbenzene, butoxyethanol, trimethylbenzene and dichlorobenzene.
All products in the Spigoacustic catalogue and Spigotec catalogue have an A+ rating, the highest certification for indoor air quality, according to UNE-EN ISO 16000. They contribute to better indoor air quality after construction and during occupancy.
The MDF boards used to manufacture Spigoacustic and Spigotec acoustic panels have passed Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) tests in compliance with ASTM standards, EPA compendium methods or ISO methods accepted by LEED for each type of contaminant. Thus, the concentration of the following contaminants has been measured in all areas of usual occupancy:formaldehyde, PM10 and PM 2.5 particles, ozone, VOCs considered in the CDPH Standard Method v1.1 list and carbon monoxide, in a laboratory accredited according to ISO/IEC 17025.
In addition, they are also certified, including A+, as E1 low formaldehyde emission, after passing the tests required by the ISO 717-2 standard.
