Tough demands are placed on the materials used in hospitals, laboratories and other sterile areas. Above all, focus is placed on preventing the spread of bacteria and mould and enabling the ceiling tiles to be disinfected and cleaned.
For applications in areas where hygiene is critical, we offer ceiling tiles that have varying hygienic properties depending on requirements and the relevant version, such as:
Our mineral ceiling tiles that are manufactured using wet felt technology have an extremely low filter effect, which means that less dirt settles and the ceiling stays looking as good as new.
It must be possible to disinfect medical and hygiene-sensitive areas easily and at any time. Unperforated metal ceilings from OWA are optimally suited to this requirement since they allow easy surface disinfection. OWAtecta (L0) is ideal for use in hospitals (operating rooms, intensive care units and hospital rooms) and other sterile and hygienic areas.
This is further confirmed by extensive tests from the Institute of Medical Microbiology and Hygiene at the Philipp University of Marburg. For more information about the test method, see our brochure “Ceilings for special tasks”.
