Knauf Danoline™ perforated plasterboard

Gypsum is non mineral fibre based acoustic ceiling solution for a healthy comfortable indoor environment. A natural product that offers a large number of advantages when used as a building material. Gypsum is easily machined, non combustible and contains no hazardous substances, and the manufacture of gypsum boards has only minimal impact on the environment. The residual waste from production can be recycled to produce new boards.

Plasterboard panels are relatively low embodied energy vs. other building materials (concrete, metal etc) & Knauf Danoline Plasterboard panels are made from a blend of natural gypsum & synthetic gypsum- obtained from recycled post industrial material.

Knauf Danoline perforated panels are clean and have low particle drop when installing, rated for clean air cert in EU.

During fitting and processing no hazardous substances are released, and ready-painted Knauf Danoline gypsum products are easy to maintain. As well as being environmentally sound, gypsum is a durable material with a long lifetime.

OWA Range

OWA ceiling tiles are made of bio-soluble fibres derived from natural sources and recycled materials in differing proportions:

> biosoluble mineral wool 30 % – 60 %
> organic binding agents 5 % – 10 %
> solvent-free dispersions 0 % – 5 %
> natural fillers (clay, perlite) 20 % – 40 %
> recycled pulp 2 % – 5 %

Another difference that OWA makes: we produce our own mineral wool. For that reason we have full control of the raw materials supply chain. We work with selected suppliers, taking care to ensure short transport routes. 80 % of our raw materials come from Germany, indeed mostly from the close vicinity.

OWA ceiling tiles are 100% recyclable, so they can be integrated into lifecycle building concepts. On removal their component parts can be used as fillers, for example, in the construction industry.
