Poor acoustic conditions can have a large impact on indoor environmental quality and can result in decreased productivity. The specially designed panels used for our acoustic ceilings provide noise reduction coefficients (NRC) up to 0.85.
Research has indicated that people prefer to work in daylight conditions and to maintain contact with the outdoors; settings that improve a person’s well-being and productivity. Hunter Douglas products improve the indoor environment by optimising interior brightness, diffusing glare and maintaining a visual contact with the outdoors.
Feeling too hot or too cold is largely dependent on indoor temperature and directly influenced by solar heat gain through windows and facades. Developing strategies to regulate thermal gain is essential in achieving good indoor environmental quality.
Indoor air quality
Indoor air quality is intrinsically linked to the health and comfort of a building's occupants and can be affected by microbial contaminants, gases and particulates. Using ventilation, filtration and source control are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality.
Our commitment as a manufacturer is to offer product solutions which contribute to the overall performance of a building. By controlling light and improving energy efficiency, Hunter Douglas Architectural window coverings, facades and ceilings systems make buildings better places for the people who use them.
