Maximum Australia launches product for healthy buildings

Maximum Australia has launched a product for its range of pressed porcelain panels that it says will help tackle “Sick building syndrome” and help create healthy living spaces.

Active 2.0 is a photocatalytic coating developed specifically for Maximum pressed porcelain panels that reduces indoor nitrogen oxide (NOx) and volatile organic compound (VOC) levels.

“We spend so much of our lives inside buildings – houses, offices, schools, shopping centres – but while these structures do a good job of protecting us from the elements, they also expose us to a range of chemicals that can have significant impact on our health,” reads a statement from Maximum Australia.

The benefits of Active 2.0 include, that it removes toxic nitrogen oxides from the air and reduces concentration of dangerous VOCs and that it has self-cleaning and anti-odour properties and prevents the spread of bacteria.

Maximum Australia produces a range of high-performance, large-format pressed porcelain panels that provide designers with a unique, lightweight architectural finish.

Active 2.0 is offered as an optional addition to standard Maximum panels and tiles.

Artedomus is the exclusive distributor of Maximum Australia.
