Create healthier indoor spaces with ACTIVair® Technology
We offer a range of products that use ACTIVair technology to create healthier spaces to work, rest and play.
We spend up to 90% of our time indoors and often assume that the air we breathe is clean and pollutant-free. But that isn’t always the case, with VOCs often present in our indoor environments.
What are VOCs?
Pollutants called VOCs (volatile organic compounds) are naturally emitted by people, furniture, carpets and paints and are present in our homes, offices, schools and more. ACTIVair technology works to remove the most common VOC, formaldehyde.
Removing formaldehyde improves the air quality within our working, learning and living spaces and reduces common health problems such as headaches, nausea, lack of concentration, fatigue and breathing problems. Specifying and installing products using ACTIVair technology helps to improve health and wellbeing, as well as productivity.
ACTIVair technology contributes towards two BREEAM points under indoor air quality, as part of a management plan and handover test plan. It also works through an emulsion paint finish and has no impact on performance regarding fire, acoustics and durability.
We offer a range of solutions featuring ACTIVair technology, including Rigitone and Gyptone ceiling systems and ThistlePro PureFinish plaster.
