Offensive smells are just as detrimental to our wellbeing as unpleasant noises. In the private sphere this may be the smell of chlorine form a swimming pool, and in the public sphere this may be exhaust air from a large kitchen. The topic of health protection is increasing in importance with the use of chemical construction products (e.g. VOCs, volatile organic compounds).
Anti-smell function as odour barriers
However, some smells do not vanish quickly, but stick around and need to be kept at bay. Internal non-loadbearing partitions according to DIN 4103 can serve as odour barriers. To eliminate an unpleasant odour without forming a visual barrier, glazed partitions are the weapon of choice.
Steel profile systems against unpleasant odours
Partitions constructed from Jansen steel profiles are ideal for large-format glass panes for a particularly spacious feel. The non-insulated steel profile system Art’ 15, for example, is perfect for the interiors of new and existing buildings. Thanks to its improved anti-noise and anti-smell function, offensive odours and noise can be effectively blocked.
