The Ecophon ceiling system is lightweight and therefore extremely undemanding in terms of transportation, handling and installation. The structure of glass wool is such that the tiles have excellent mechanical properties relative to their weight. This means that Ecophon sound absorbers are stable and can withstand handling, but are nonetheless pliable and very easy to work with. Of course, the panels can withstand normal handling during installation, but due care should be taken to avoid breaking or damaging the edges and surface.
It is worth bearing in mind that ceiling products are visible parts of the interior and should be regarded as part of the furniture. Cartons containing panels and grids must be handled according to the instructions on the labels, such as 'Handle with Care', 'This Side Up', and so on. The cartons must be protected against rain and moisture and therefore should not be stored outside.
