Since 2012, Danish acoustic wood wool manufacturer Troldtekt has been leading the way with its sustainable practices and leadership.
An early adopter of the Cradle-to-Cradle design concept, the company has focused on its material health, reutilisation, energy, water and social responsibility winning recognition and numerous green awards over the years.
The adoption of Futurecem™ has now further enhanced the manufacturing process and elevated Troldtekt to Cradle-to-Cradle Gold Certification.
In addition, and being both FSC® and PEFC™ certified, the company has set strict environmental targets for its manufacture and products culminating in a transparent roadmap in its annual CSR reports.
This has led the company to be one of Europe’s most vociferous advocates for sustainable design and one which contributes positively to BREEAM, WELL, LEED and DGNB-Certifications.
Futurecem™ is a new patented cement from Aalborg Portland. Absorbing more carbon dioxide than it creates during production, its incorporation into Troldtekt’s wood wool panels gives Troldtekt acoustic panels their strength, durability and fire-protective properties without the use of harmful chemicals.
This combination also means that Troldtekt’s panels have a negative carbon footprint right up until it is time for them to be disposed of or recycled – a phenomenal result.
Troldtekt’s natural and inherently sustainable panels offer high sound absorption and tactile surface, coupled with high durability and low-cost lifecycle performance.
Available in various sizes and in four grades, from extreme fine to coarse, the panels can be left untreated or painted in virtually any RAL colour.
