Perforated plasterboard ceilings and walls are utilised to achieve aesthetic standout spaces with high acoustic performance by controlling both sound transmission and sound absorption, especially in commercial and educational spaces. The latest perforated plasterboard with white acoustic fabric lining from Potter Interior Systems, has an added benefit, and one that is vital to achieving optimum human health – the ability to remove toxins from the air.
Developed by worldwide plasterboard specialist Saint-Gobain, the patented technology in the plasterboard known as Activ’Air converts volatile organic compound (VOCs) — particularly formaldehyde. Formaldehyde and other VOCs are naturally emitted into our homes, offices and schools by people, pets and cleaning products, as well as furniture, carpets, paints and varnishes. Generally, they’re hard to get rid of, which is why this technology for our indoor environments has been so well received.
