What functional benefits does BAUX products have?
BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool
BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products have many functional benefits. Our wood wool products absorb sound, regulate moisture, accumulate heat, they’re also fireproof and they have low VOC. BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products are effective in absorbing human voice frequencies (500-4000Hz). When BAUX Wood Wool (25 mm thick) is mounted directly onto a wall, the material performs at NRC 0.40 and Alpha-w 0.30 (class D). BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products are moisture resistant and even out air humidity by absorbing or emitting moisture into the ambient air, creating a better indoor climate. The high pH value discourages mold or rot and BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products can be used in bathrooms and swimming pool areas. When using wood wool in shower rooms, BAUX products should only be fixed to the ceiling and not walls. BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products naturally accumulate heat, releasing it into the ambient air when the air temperature falls. This contributes to lower energy costs, reduced environmental impact, and a comfortable indoor climate. BAUX Acoustic Wood Wool products are A-Classed in surface burning tests by Intertek (ASTM-E84) and classified according to European classification for building products, DIN EN 13501 with rating B-s1,d0.
BAUX Acoustic Pulp
BAUX Acoustic Pulp panel is the first in the world to uncompromisingly combine the performance properties of sound absorption, safety, lightweight, fire retardance and water repellence with sustainability and modern aesthetics. This is a result of more than 25 years of biomimicry focused research and development. Biomimicry is a design approach that seeks sustainable solutions based on the idea that the answers already reside within nature itself.
BAUX Acoustic Pulp is effective in absorbing human voice frequencies (500-4000Hz). When BAUX Acoustic Pulp (20 mm thick) is mounted directly onto a wall, the material performs at NRC 0.35 and Alpha-w 0.35 (class D). Complete fire test for BAUX Acoustic Pulp will be conducted in late spring of 2019. The preliminary estimate is that the product will meet a D-class, according to EN 13823 EN ISO 11925-2.
