Orgatec 2014: Sandler showcases nonwovens for office design
Board Member Dr. Ulrich Hornfeck; Tobias Baumgärtel, Sales Director Home Textiles, and their team from sales and product development welcomed approximately 200 visitors at the Sandler booth at this year’s Orgatec exhibition for office design and furnishing in Cologne. From October 21st to 25th, the nonwovens manufacturer showcased its nonwovens under the motto “The textile office”:
Sandler’s nonwoven panels put a damper on workplaces with a high noise level. Acoustically efficient back walls to office cabinets, suspended ceilings or partition walls create good conversational acoustics and a pleasant atmosphere. In cooperation with renowned manufacturers of office furniture Sandler constantly works to perfect sound the sound insulating properties of their nonwovens acoustic nonwovens. Printing and embossing motifs even make these nonwovens sophisticated design elements. That apart, these versatile materials also dampen machine noise in industrial environments.
Each day, we spend several hours sitting on them, they are supposed to last for many years and to have a positive influence on our health: Office chairs. Ergonomically shaped and well-cushioned, they make the workplace comfortable. In this application Sandler nonwovens are utilised as an upholstery layer directly under the cover fabric and provide for long-lasting seating comfort. Owing to its high recovery rate the high-quality material retains its shape – no matter how many times a day we get up and sit down again. Air-permeable and breathable, Sandler nonwovens also contribute to an optimal micro-climate of the seat, for pleasant and productive working, in summer and winter.
Sandler polyester nonwovens for increased comfort and optimum sound insulation in the office were in high demand at this year’s Orgatec. Sandler’s acoustically efficient nonwoven panels are an ideal solution for frameless partition walls, which currently are all the rage. The textile alternatives for acoustically efficient interior design elements were a drawcard, particularly for potential new customers. Increasingly establishing themselves as an alternative to foam in office furnishing, polyester nonwovens in general were very popular with the visitors from all over Europe and Asia. All in all, a very successful trade fair participation. Against this backdrop, all is set for a renewed participation in the 2016 Orgatec.
