CertainTeed Announces EPDs for Ecophon® Ceilings Products

March 2016

CertainTeed, Malvern, Pa., has announced third party verified EPDs for its Ecophon® products.
    
The international certification company DNV GL certified the EPDs affirming the true sustainability and health benefits of the following Ecophon product families: Ecophon Advantage™, Ecophon Gedina™, Ecophon Solo™, Ecophon Focus™ and Ecophon Hygiene™, which includes nine different product variations.
    
The EPD describes the environmental impact of a single unit of an acoustic ceiling panel, the intended use of which is to increase sound absorption in a room to create a better indoor environment. Each environmental declaration will also allow the respective Ecophon ceiling panels to contribute toward specific point calculations in LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) building projects.
