EGO IS
ACOUSTIC

EGO COMPONENTS HAVE BEEN TESTED IN REVERBERATION ROOM IN ACCORDANCE WITH UNI EN ISO 354:2003 STANDARDS

TEST PROCEDURES

To perform the test in the laboratory an omnidirectional source was used with a pink noise signal.
The source was placed behind the sofa at a distance of 2 mts and a height of 1.3 mts.
This procedure enhances at its best the feature of the screen isolating the seating area from the outside noise.
Being the sofa mainly used in open spaces where areas are shared with other people, tests have been carried out at medium-high frequencies which are typical of the human speech.
THE ABSENCE OF FRAMES MAKES THE SURFACES OF THE PANELS COMPLETELY SOUNDPROOF.

There are no parts of the panel covered with other materials that could reduce the noise absorption or reflect part of the sound. The panels have the same aesthetic, acoustic and functional characteristics on both sides.
THE GRAPH AND DIAGRAM SHOW HOW THE ACOUSTIC PANELS INFLUENCE THE ACOUSTICS OF THE ENVIRONMENT.

EGO acoustic products tend to absorb less the low frequencies (under 500 Hz), progressively more the medium frequencies (between 500 and 2000 Hz) and to a greater extent the high frequencies (above 2000 Hz).

THE CENTRAL FREQUENCIES RELATED TO THE HUMAN SPEECH ARE HIGHLIGHTED IN RED

EGO HAS BEEN
TESTED

THE TEST RESULTS ARE AN IMPORTANT HELP FOR FACILITY MANAGERS WHEN IMPLEMENTING THEIR PROJECT.

Low frequencies (under 500 Hz), the dark sounds which are the most difficult to dump, are well absorbed, despite the reduced thickness;

1) Medium frequencies, between 500 and 2000Hz, typical of the human speech and very common in working environments, are very well absorbed.

2) High frequencies, above 2000 Hz, are gradually less absorbed; these tend normally to be reduced by walls, furniture and people.

EGO
VOC

VOC CERTIFICATION

EGO products have been accredited for VOC certificate; this certifies their peculiarity of low emission and contribution to the high quality of the environment. The products certified VOC have undergone an independent test procedure and comply with the most rigorous standards ANSI/BIFMA M7.1-2011

All projects today tend to achieve the lowest air pollution, therefore architects, designers and facility managers should choose materials and products with low emission of polluting agents.

The best and safest way to achieve this is to choose those products with a VOC certificate; those ones that being tested for over 10.000 chemicals, don’t release polluting chemicals to a significant level. Products certified VOC are prescribed for environments for children and old people, schools and hospices.

These products, furthermore, help to achieve accreditations for “indoor environment quality” within the LEED evaluation scheme ( leadership in energy and environment design).

EGO IS
ECO-FRIENDLY

EGO is the most ecological system of its kind currently being produced. It is made of rigid structural polyurethane with a density between 550gr/dm3 and 750 gr/dm3 as regards the internal parts; the external sections, instead, are made of low density flexible polyurethane.
No added use of fuel oil for the production of the polyester base. EGO uses only 100% recycled polyester.

EGO IS

Energy consumption for production reduced by as much as 90%
Harmful emissions reduced by 100%
Reduction of water consumed in production by 70%
Reduction of 100% of the amount of industrial waste
Architects and designers are now increasingly aware of environmental issues. On a planet that for decades has had to sustain the industrial development of man, today it is essential that we rekindle our love for live materials and preserve them from unconditional use.

EGO, always sensitive to environmental issues and respectful of natural resources, has created a special trademark to underscore its attention to these important issues.

EGO IS
TECHNOLOGY

EGO FLEXIBLE POLYURETHANE is a compound of polyurethane mainly used in a cold moulding process of seats, armchairs, cushions, frames for offices and Legola walls. The polyurethane components are ready to be upholstered with fabric or leather.
It is 100% crushproof and long-lasting.
Cold pressing takes place without the use of foaming agents (without CFC); water is used for expansion.
EGO components are made only in Polyurethane, contrary to the usual habit of using metal or wooden inner frames. It has an average density of 60/kg/m3.

On request it can be supplied in the fireproof version in compliance with the following standards:

- Italian class 1IM: Ministerial Decree of 26.06.84 section 3, amended by Ministerial Decree of 03.09.01 (test method UNI 9175-1987 and UNI 9175/FA1-1994)

- English class BS CRIB 5: (test method: Consumer Protection;
furniture and furnishings fire safety regulations 1988 no. 1324 schedule 1,
