With five locations across the Republic & Northern Ireland and more than 240 employees, SIG Ireland is the country’s largest distributor of specialised building products. Building professionals can now order a wide range of Troldtekt acoustic panels for ceilings and walls from SIG IE.

The Irish Kingspan Group owns Troldtekt, the leading specialist in acoustic panels made of Danish wood and cement since 1935 – with its headquarters and manufacturing facilities in Denmark. Troldtekt has a presence in countries such as Germany, Sweden, Norway and the UK. It was the UK subsidiary in London that concluded the agreement with SIG IE.

"We see potential in the Irish market, where acoustics and indoor climate are becoming increasingly important factors in offices, schools and several other types of buildings. SIG Ireland has built up extensive know-how and a wide range of contacts in the Irish market over the last 30 years, making it an obvious match for Troldtekt," says Steve Mansell, Country Manager for Troldtekt in the UK and Ireland.

Cradle to Cradle Certified® acoustic panels

The combination of wood and cement provides Troldtekt acoustic panels with their sound-absorbing properties, ensuring good acoustics in all types of buildings. The panels are robust and durable with high moisture tolerance and a service life of at least 50-80 years. The wood fibres in Troldtekt are encased in non-flammable cement, which contributes to effective fire protection. 

Troldtekt has been working strategically with the international design concept Cradle to Cradle for more than a decade. Along the way, Troldtekt has converted its high-tech factory in Denmark to renewable energy and introduced circular solutions. For example, offcuts from manufacturing panels are used as a resource in cement production by Aalborg Portland, Troldtekt's cement supplier.

All Troldtekt cement-bonded wood wool products in natural and standard colours are Cradle to Cradle Certified at gold level.


Flexible range

SIG Ireland will stock a selection of the most popular Troldtekt acoustic solutions and will have access to Troldtekts complete acoustic offering to support all project requirements.

Customers can also choose acoustic panels based on the low-carbon cement type FUTURECEM™. Troldtekt FUTURECEM products have a carbon footprint that is 26 and 38 per cent lower over their lifecycles than Troldtekt panels based on traditional grey and white cement, respectively. Environmental impact is documented in EPDs for each product.

The agreement between Troldtekt and SIG IE is already in effect and Troldtekt panels will be in stock at SIG during the summer.
