Your room can do moreThe heart of every building is the room. As the starting point for creating perfect places, it marks a change in perspective: automation that puts people at the center. Did you know that the rental value of healthy productive buildings is at least six percent higher? Room automation is key for protecting and enhancing the occupants' health as well as increasing productivity at the same time.
Sick Building Syndrome
Do you know buildings that give you a headache and/or irritation of eyes and throat? Potentially you are experiencing Sick Building Syndrome (SBS). One major cause of SBS is the out gassing from building materials such as carpets, paints or furniture. These gases are summarized as Volatile Organic Compounds (VOC). Recent laws on energy saving require well insulated and draught-proofed buildings to minimize the need for heating and cooling. The resulting air tightness of buildings, however, also keeps the VOC gasses inside, creating SBS among occupants. Humid air as well can indirectly contribute to SBS by promoting the growth of fungi and mold. Besides devaluing the real estate, exposure to mold spores represents a hazardous health risk. Symptoms range from allergic reactions to poisoning by mycotoxins. The number one measure to prevent SBS is proper ventilation.
