Why is the surface important for the:
In our opinion the surface has to contribute to more than just for the eye and the ear. When we develop a new Akutex surface we also consider:
- how to handle the product
- how to clean and maintain the surface
- energy consumption in the production process
- indoor climate when the products are installed
Indoor climate
There are no harmful emissions from the material, neither in the early nor later stages of the ceiling’s life. Ecophon products bear the Indoor Climate Label, the Finnish M1 emission classification of building materials, and they are recommended by the Swedish Asthma and Allergy Association.

The unique Akutex Surface Technology ensures that dust and dirt do not adhere to the surface, so cleaning involves a minimum of effort and cost. From the hygienic point of view, the surface is compact and smooth, dirt-repellent and easy to clean.

One major advantage for the painted Akutex surface is that it has high scratch and gloss resistance, the new Akutex FT even has improved scratch resistance. This means that all tiles with an Akutex surface are robust and well-suited for on-site handling.
In the production process of Akutex FT we have managed to reduce our energy consumption by 25% compared to Akutex T. The Akutex surfaces have been developed to meet the requirements for total recycling. Also, the high light reflection factor of  the Akutex surfaces contributes to lower the number of light fittings in the room which result in lower energy consumption.
