Blue Angel-labelled low-emission thermal insulation material and suspended ceilings.

Thermal insulation material and suspended ceilings are an effective way to save energy and reduce noise in buildings. However, if the products are manufactured from pollutant-containing materials these measures may, in fact, harm the environment. That is why the Blue Angel eco-label may be awarded to those thermal insulation materials and suspended ceilings which beyond the legal provisions have been produced in a low-pollutant manufacturing process and pose no health hazard in the living environment. The Basic Award Criteria include requirements for thermal and sound insulation and define limits for emissions from the products.
