Ecological Impact Sound Insulation | STEICO
STEICOunderfloor and STEICOsilent plus are impact sound insulation products made of natural wood fiber. The wood fiber insulation boards with a thickness of between 3 and 7 mm are laid under prefabricated parquet and laminate floors, where they offer the following advantages:
For the production of STEICO impact sound insulation, only wood from sustainable forestry certified according to the strict criteria of PEFC is used. In addition, STEICO impact sound insulation represents a CO2 reservoir.
The CO2 that the tree has taken from the atmosphere during its growth remains bound in the finished product and is thus removed from the atmosphere over the long term.
The renowned and independent Institute for Building Biology in Rosenheim has tested the impact sound insulation STEICOunderfloor for health effects. STEICOunderfloor is classified and recommended as harmless from a building biology point of view.
Among other things, this is a result of the manufacturing process. In the production of wood fiberboards using the so-called wet process, the wood’s own lignin is used to bind the boards. No additional, external adhesives are necessary.
Wood products such as STEICO impact sound insulation are sorptive and thus contribute to balanced humidity in indoor spaces.
The production of STEICO wood fiber insulating materials is committed to sustainable principles. STEICO relies entirely on CO2-neutral biomass for the generation of production heat and steam. In the annual production of STEICO products, more than 2.5 times as much CO2 is bound as is released during production (0.95 million tons of CO2 storage compared to 0.37 million tons of CO2 emissions in production).
Further successes in terms of climate protection can be read in the regularly published STEICO Sustainability Report. Some of the highlights for 2021 include:
Climate-friendly production heat and steam: Use of biomass increased by 31%.
CO2 reduction: Greenhouse gases reduced by 130,000t
CO2 emission per ton of finished product: CO2 intensity reduced by 33%
Raw wood utilization: 100% raw wood utilization, 0% waste
Waste management: 6,514t of resources and 1,053t of greenhouse gases are saved via waste management.
