SNOWSOUND® - FIBER
The patented Snowsound-Fiber technology is based on soft interwoven polyester fibers which are inherently fire-resistant and allow to limit the growth of bacteria due to the silver ions incorporated in the molecule. The interaction between the special acoustic fibers and the design of the objects and the support systems helps reduce annoying acoustic reverberation in rooms, while improving quality both of life and of work.

 

ACOUSTIC PERFORMANCE
Snowsound-Fiber has been tested to meet UNI EN ISO 354.

 
GREENGUARD GOLD CERTIFICATION
Snowsound-Fiber products have recently 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 which 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.
 
NO FORMALDEHYDE
Snowsound-Fiber has no detectable formaldehyde contents, tested according to the UNI EN 717-2.

 

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, Velcro and sewing thread included. All components are also 100% recyclable. The superior quality of the materials and workmanship extend 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 diffi cult to recycle.

FIRE
Snowsound-Fiber has Italian Class 1 and Euroclass B-s2, d0 classification as to reaction to fire.

 

HYGIENE & HEALTH
Thanks to the silver ions incorporated into the raw material of the fiber, Snowsound-Fiber limits the growth of bacteria on the surface of the fibers. The effect is lasting and is not diminished by washing or use. It also prevents the formation of unpleasant odours. Naturally, the antibacterial effect is limited to the fabric area.

 

MAINTENANCE
Snowsound-Fiber is machine washable at 60°C and can be ironed at low temperature (max 110°), while still preserving its fire-retardant and anti-bacterial qualities.
