Why Does Indoor Environmental Quality Matter?
We spend roughly 90% of our lives indoors, and the past few years have highlighted how our well-being is directly affected by our physical surroundings. Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) consists of several key factors: air, sound, light, temperature, and more.
Making sure we have healthy air, impactful acoustics, sufficient lighting and thermal comfort are essential to health and well-being in spaces where we live, work, learn, heal and play.
Explore how you can create a space with outstanding IEQ, starting at the ceiling, when you choose sustainable, healthy building solutions.

Panther Valley Elementary School evaluated the indoor environmental quality (IEQ) with AWAIR sensors throughout the school. The sensors measure seven key IEQ factors: temperature, humidity, CO2, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), particulate matter (PM2.5), noise, and light. After identifying air quality, light and acoustic level concerns, the Facility Manager renovated the nurses station and a classroom to improve the IEQ. ULTIMA high light-reflective ceilings improved the TOTAL ACOUSTICS performance as well as light levels. The Armstrong STRATACLEAN IQ Air Filtration System and VIDASHIELD UV24 Air Purification System improved indoor air quality.
