CertainTeed Ceilings Decoustics Clean-Air Claro panels release virtually no volatile organic compounds, providing LEED accreditation points and meeting Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) 4.1 standards.

In recent years, increased attention has been placed on the role that sustainable building products play on occupants’ overall mental and physical wellbeing. To further support that focus through a balance of design and acoustic control, CertainTeed Ceilings now offers Decoustics Clean-Air Claro. Engineered to fulfill the most unique design challenges, the fully customizable acoustical panel contributes to overall health and safety standards by helping to deliver better indoor air quality.

Decoustics Clean-Air Claro features the aesthetic of drywall in an acoustically transparent stipple textured design that boasts exceptional sound absorption with Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) values of up to 0.9. Decoustics Clean-Air Claro panels are pre-curved and custom-engineered to attain a wide range of unique shapes and sizes while achieving a 94% light reflectance value. The panels can also be matched to any paint chip to meet specific design requirements.

“The design flexibility of Decoustics Clean-Air Claro makes it an ideal choice for specifiers, but the innovative construction is what truly sets it apart,” says Simone Abele, Marketing Director for Decoustics. The high-performance panel is manufactured using a high percentage of recycled content with no-added urea formaldehyde (NAUF) components. Given this material composition, the panel releases virtually no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), providing LEED accreditation points and meeting Indoor Environmental Quality (IEQ) 4.1 standards.

Decoustics Clean-Air Claro ® also achieves Class A, the lowest flame spread rating for composite test, and when installed onto Decoustics proprietary Ceilencio suspension system it attains seismic approval for areas with high earthquake activity, making it a safe and reliable choice for all applications.
