Indoor Air Quality

Challenge

The World Health Organization reports that 30 % of new and renovated buildings receive excessive complaints related to indoor air quality.

In addition, poor air quality, and elevated temperatures, consistently lowered employee performance by up to 10%.

Good to know

Low VOC emission ceiling products contribute to LEED®, BREEAM, HQE, DGNB, WELL Building Standard and Ska credits.

In certain indoor spaces such as laboratories

it is essential to limit the number of airborne particles by creating a Clean Room-type environment using products certified in accordance with ISO 14644-1.

Armstrong offers solutions for areas requiring minimal to the most stringent requirements.
