Enhance Your Indoor Space with VidaGroove Acoustic Slats

Poor acoustics in your home or at your workplace can have a negative impact on your general well-being. It can cause stress and concentration issues and a general bad influence on your health.

Acoustic slat panels are a great way to improve room acoustics in your living or working environment. The combination of the lamella structure and the acoustic backing material scatters the soundwaves and absorbs them when they hit the panels. This means that the sound will not reflect back into the room, but will be absorbed in the panel.

Optimise Acoustics and Comfort with VidaGroove Acoustic Slats

At VidaSpace, we understand that the basis for a comfortable indoor climate is good acoustics, which directly affects the comfort and functionality of any space. Our acoustic panels are designed to optimise sound conditions to create comfortable environments to thrive in.

The Importance of Good Acoustics for Health and Well-Being

In today's fast-paced world, maintaining a healthy indoor climate is paramount. Poor acoustics not only lead to discomfort but also exacerbate stress and communication challenges, especially in settings with high human traffic like open office environments, public spaces, restaurants, theaters, and kindergartens. Modern buildings with hard, sound-reflecting surfaces intensify the problem by extending the reverberation time. VidaGroove Slats panels offer a practical solution by effectively absorbing sound without compromising the natural ambiance of the room.

The Solution

VidaGroove Slats offers acoustic panels that effectively absorb sound and thus reduce noise, without eliminating the room's natural sound. These panels can be mounted directly on existing walls, ceilings, and other surfaces and they offer significant improvements in acoustics by focusing on areas with high sound reflection. Further integration of insulation between the wall and panel can significantly improve sound absorption, which is ideal for public buildings, where it also contributes to improved fire safety. Whether it's an open office or a bustling restaurant, our panels deliver superior acoustics.

A Healthy Indoor Climate Requires Healthy Building Materials

Creating a healthy indoor climate isn't just about ventilation and temperature control; it's also deeply intertwined with the materials used in constructing and furnishing buildings. Unbeknownst to many, the very walls, floors, and furniture that surround us can emit volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and other harmful substances into the air we breathe, affecting our health and well-being.

Healthy building materials play a pivotal role in ensuring that indoor environments promote rather than detract from our health. By opting for materials with low VOC emissions, occupants can significantly reduce their exposure to harmful chemicals. These materials not only contribute to better indoor air quality but also mitigate the risk of hypersensitivity reactions, allergies, and headaches that can result from prolonged exposure.

Certified for Your Peace of Mind

As the focus on sustainability has increased, so has the need for certifications, as they establish a common framework for sustainability. Our acoustic panels meet strict requirements for the content of health-damaging substances, underscoring our commitment to ensuring a healthy indoor climate.

With the third-party sustainability and healthy product testing, Our VidaGroove Acoustic Slat products will contribute points towards achieving the following Healthy Building Certifications.

  • Homestar
  • Green Star
  • Living Building Challenge
  • Passive House

CE Marking

CE Marking is a certification for products sold in the European Economic Area (EEA) that ensures they meet safety and environmental standards. It signifies compliance with EU regulations and allows free movement of goods within the EEA. Products displaying the CE Mark have undergone testing and conform to essential health, safety, and environmental protection requirements.


FSC, or Forest Stewardship Council, is an organisation that promotes responsible forest management. FSC Certified indicates that a product can be sourced from FSC Certified forests to prove its commitment to sustainable and ethical wood sourcing.


CARB II (California Air Resources Board Phase 2) and TSA Title VI (Toxic Substances Control Act Title VI) certifications are related to formaldehyde emissions in composite wood products, ensuring compliance with environmental regulations. These certifications confirm that wood-based materials meet specific emission limits for formaldehyde, contributing to indoor air quality and environmental protection.

Nordic Swan Ecolabel

The Nordic Swan Ecolabel, often referred to simply as the Nordic Ecolabel or Nordic Swan, is a voluntary, third-party certification used in Nordic countries. It's awarded to products and services that meet stringent environmental and climate criteria throughout their lifecycle. This label covers various categories such as energy efficiency, reduced emissions, sustainable materials, and other eco-friendly attributes. It's recognised for promoting sustainable consumption by guiding consumers toward more environmentally friendly choices across a wide range of products and services.

Transparent Documentation for Informed Decision-Making

At VidaSpace we are dedicated to providing detailed and transparent documentation for our acoustic panels, which supports their quality and environmental responsibility.

We offer documentation in the form of Life Cycle Assessments (LCA), Environmental Product Declarations (EPD), and Building Product Information Requirements (BPIR).

By making these documents available, we ensure that our customers can make well-informed decisions that support both their specific project needs and their goals to reduce environmental impact.


LCA stands for "Life Cycle Assessment," a method used to evaluate the environmental impacts of a product throughout its entire life cycle, from raw material extraction, production, and distribution to usage, recycling, and disposal. The purpose of an LCA is to quantify and assess environmental aspects such as energy consumption, greenhouse gas emissions, water use, and other resource consumptions to determine how to minimise negative impacts and enhance sustainability. LCA is often used to make informed decisions about environmental impact, product development, and process optimisation.


An Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) provides a detailed description of a product's environmental performance based on an objective assessment, making it easy for project managers and decision-makers to compare and select materials with low environmental impact.


BPIR aims to ensure that essential information about building products is readily available, promoting safety, quality, and compliance with regulations in New Zealand. The purpose of the BPIR Documentation is to demonstrate compliance with the New Zealand Building Code, with the intention to improve product knowledge and decision-making by building consent authorities, building owners, builders, and designers. Better product information is expected to result in fewer building defects, less building rework, more efficient consenting, and safer and more durable buildings.
