  • Precautions should be taken to avoid condensation risks.

Demounting:

Cleaning:

  • Vacuum: The surface can be vacuum cleaned with soft brush attachment.
  • Damp cloth: The surface can be cleaned with wet cloth or sponge with a slightly alkaline detergent (pH between 7 and 9) without alcohol, ammonia or chlorine (this may render the surface slightly shinier, so a thorough clean is recommended).
  • May also be foam cleaned up to 52 times a year by spraying foam onto the surface and wiping off.
  • High pressure cleaning, up to 52 times a year. Where high pressure cleaning is required the Hygienic tiles can be clipped into the grid and sealed with a silicone sealant containing fungicide.

Hygiene:

Stone wool is an inorganic material which is not attacked by rot, fungi or bacteria. This makes for a cleaner and healthier indoor environment.

Emissions:

Awarded the Finnish M1 emission classification for building materials and the Danish Indoor Climate Label for low VOC emission products.

Compatible edges, grids and systems:
