Humancare Lab

OWAcoustic premium Humancare Lab is a 20 mm thick, hygienic, smooth, white fleece covered ceiling tile. It has an ISO 3 cleanroom classification, has 100% RH, is a class C sound absorber and is available with a square edge.

Suspended ceilings in laboratories designed as cleanrooms may only emit extremely low quantities of airborne particles in order to meet applicable air purity requirements. EN ISO 14644-1 defines the permissible thresholds.

The suitability of ceilings for cleanrooms is defined by more than just their emissions behaviour. Equally decisive is how they create distinctions between lower and higher cleanliness classes and how they react to the different air flows which occur in cleanrooms. Both OWAtecta metal ceilings and Humancare Lab mineral ceilings contribute to maintaining the required pressure level in a room, thus protecting personnel and test results.

Humancae Lab is dirt repellent, scratch resistant and wipe disinfectable. The hygienic ceiling tile prevents the spread of bacteria, fungi and germs. Even MRSA pathogens don’t stand a chance. It’s ideal for laboratories or hospitals, in particular ICUs, positive/negative pressure rooms and cleanrooms. It helps to create a clean, quiet and calm environment, thus aiding recovery and work.

OWA manufactures our mineral wool tiles from naturally occurring and recycled materials via a wet-felt process. We have virtually zero VOCs and no formaldehyde resin in the formulation of our boards.

Humancare Lab tiles form a complete suspended ceiling system when combined with our exposed tee grid and perimeter trim. They are easy to install and demount for service access. OWA mineral board is dense and firm, therefore the tiles will retain integrity when handled frequently. Over time, dirt and dust does not accumulate on the surface, whereas for lower density products, dark patches may appear. The tiles are easy to trim onsite with a utility knife. Cut edges will not crumble and do not need any further treatment.
