Snowsound Fiber Textiles

SNOWSOUND FIBER TEXTILES
The patented Snowsound Fiber technology is based on soft interwoven polyester acoustic fibers that are inherently fire-resistant. The interaction between Snowsound Fiber and air allows controlling reverberation while adjusting the environment’s acoustics with precision taking advantage of installation modes, product’s surface and distance from the wall. This reduces the annoying acoustic reverberation improving quality both of life and of work. The choice of different Snowsound Fiber materials and the installation modes allow a selective absortion at precise ranges (low, medium, high) or a more uniform absortion at all frequencies.

 

ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE
Snowsound Fiber materials have been tested according to UNI EN ISO 354. Snowsound Fiber’s behavior varies
based on the selected material and the installation mode and can reach "A class for sound absorption".
The results are listed on the technical cards of each material.

 

GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFICATION
Snowsound Fiber products have received Greenguard Gold certification, indicating that they are low emitting products and do contribute to improve indoor air quality. Representative samples of products bearing the Greenguard certification mark have been independently tested and certified that they meet UL’s rigorous third-party Greenguard certification standards, which are among the most stringent in the world. To help reduce indoor air pollution, architects, designers, specifiers and building owners should choose materials and products that release the fewest possible pollutants (also known as low-emitting products). A great way to do this is by choosing products that are Greenguard certified, which means they have been screened for over 10,000 chemicals and do not emit high levels of chemical pollutants. Greenguard Gold certified products offer stricter certification criteria for sensitive individuals, such as children and the elderly, and are ideal for use in schools and healthcare facilities. Greenguard certified products also contribute toward credits within the indoor environmental quality section of the leadership in energy and environmental design (LEED) building rating system.
 

ECO-FRIENDLY
The product design has set the objective of achieving comprehensive, simple and fast recyclability at the end of the useful life. This is why Snowsound Fiber is made entirely in 100% recyclable polyester. The superior quality of the materials and workmanship extends the product life with the consequent decrease in materials and energy consumption. Snowsound Fiber does not contain felt, wool or other organic materials that might be difficult to recycle.

 

FIRE
Snowsound Fiber has Italian Class 1 reaction to fire and Euroclass B-s2, d0 or B-s1, d0 depending on the type of material.
The results are listed on the technical cards of each material.

 

TEXTURE
Intensive research was conducted in order to develop the fibers of Snowsound Fiber, taking into consideration not only technical and technological aspects, but also visual and tactile factors. Each material is characterized by a distinctive texture that is capable of transmitting different perceptions to the end user.
