In response to the demand for building components with sustainable and environmentally friendly attributes, acoustic product manufacturers have modified their products to expand the choices available to the design community, architects, and specifiers in order to meet these demands.
For example, in response to concern over PVC based building materials, NOVAWALL Systems, Inc., manufacturer of acoustic stretch wall fabric systems, researched several plastic compounds for their extruded track system for two years before finding a PVC Free alternative that had the same strengths and attributes as their PVC based products. Now NOVAWALL offers a completely PVC Free, Class A, 100% recyclable plastic extrusion. Combined with a formaldehyde-free acoustic fiberglass or natural fiber core, this system is as Green as it gets!
NOVAWALL Systems, Inc. has been in support of the sustainable building movement since 2002 and a member of the USGBC since 2003.The NOVAWALL systems all have sustainable, environmentally friendly attributes depending on the components chosen for the system and can contribute to several LEED, (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design), credits.
