Avoid harmful formaldehyde in the air

Construction materials, furniture, carpets, IT equipment and items of clothing all emit VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds), such as formaldehyde. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), formaldehyde affects our health, and high concentrations can cause nausea, headache and other unpleasant symptoms.

Today, Gyptone ceilings feature Activ’Air, a patented technology that actively breaks formaldehyde down into harmless, non-volatile compounds. The effectiveness of the Activ’Air technology has been tested by the accredited Eurofins laboratory. The test shows that Activ’Air decomposes up to 70 % of the formaldehyde in a controlled test environment.
