General information:
It is only possible to fulfil the expectations and demands placed on the function of the high-quality, seamless acoustic ceiling MIKROPOR® G FWA if assembly and coating work are carried out in accordance with the factory specifications determined by Lahnau Akustik GmbH.

Ensure it is possible to move the entire substructure (narrow grid / support profile) in lengthwise and crosswise directions. Request the current manufacturer and processing guidelines before commencing installation work.
 


Products from Lahnau Akustik offer numerous design options. We offer a huge choice of special colours and surfaces. We are happy to offer advice.

We develop effective acoustic building materials in close cooperation with scientists, clients, architects and contractors. Utilizing these high-quality materials facilitates optimum speech intelligibility in our built-up environment.

At the same time, the design options available with regard to material, surface, colour and shape are so varied that it is possible to efficiently combine the demands placed on man and an eco-friendly architecture with one another on the basis of the latest scientific findings.

A variety of acoustics tests are available to download from the Download archive.


Installing the substructure

The temperature during processing must not fall below 12 °C. The relative humidity should be at least 30%, however it should not exceed 70%!

Use components from a single system for the substructure! Approved substructures are: Suckow + Fischer or Lahnau Akustik.

Ensure it is possible to move the entire substructure (narrow grid / support profile) in lengthwise and crosswise directions. Do not use angle anchors!

Avoid different pressure ratios arising between the ceiling voids and usable space; due to the physical properties of the ceiling system this can lead to the surface becoming soiled.

Appropriate measures will be required if a partial vacuum is created in the ceiling or wall voids (e.g., due to a failure to exhaust stale air) (refer to information on page 7). Consult the manufacturer before installing.

First determine the direction of installation according to the incidence of light before commencing work. Arrangement of longitudinal joints of panels (narrow grid / support profile) taking into consideration the incidence of light.

1. Cleaning
  • Before cleaning with a damp cloth, carefully remove surface dust with a brush or vacuum cleaner.
  • It is possible to remove localized soiling such as fingerprints or trails of soiling close to air outlets using a firm, damp sponge together with a commercially available household cleaner or Moisture-Clean (available as a powder from Lahnau Akustik) in the respective recommended concentrations.
  • Then carefully wash down the cleaned surface with clean, clear water and dab dry with an absorbent cloth or paper (kitchen roll).
  • We recommended you test clean an inconspicuous area each time before cleaning.

Professional refurbishment must be carried out using Wilhelmi acoustic paint WAF-R 86 (special colours WAF-R 87).

  • Quantity used during refurbishment: 400-700 g/m² depending on the degree of soiling
  • Ensure the room temperature does not fall below 12 °C when applying the coating; the relative humidity should not exceed 70%.
  • Once applied immediately ensure the rooms are ventilated and dehumidified.
2.1 Refurbishment

If the acoustic ceiling has become heavily soiled after many years of normal use and can no longer be cleaned properly, it is possible to restore it to a condition virtually as good as new by applying a refurbishment spray.

When applied professionally in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions the acoustic absorbency of the wall or ceiling surface is not impaired. The refurbishment can be repeated several times, if required.

Under no circumstances should emulsion paints be applied to the surfaces using a brush or roller, otherwise the sound absorbing properties will be lost.

It is only possible to guarantee the acoustic characteristics will be retained by engaging a professional company that uses the appropriate coating machinery to professionally apply the refurbishment spray, e.g.,
