Odour nuisance

Reliably prevent the spread of bad odors when odors are to be controlled.


Unpleasant odours disturb our well-being just as sensitively as unpleasant noises. In the private sector, this can be the smell of chlorine from a swimming pool, in the public sector, for example, the exhaust air from a large kitchen. In connection with the emergence of building chemical products, the issue of health protection is also becoming increasingly important (cf. VOC volatile organic components; volatile organic compounds)

However, certain odours are not volatile but permanent, which is why they should be excluded. Non-load-bearing internal partition walls according to DIN 4103 can act as an odour barrier.

If the unwanted smell is to be contained without blocking the view, glazed partition walls are the means of choice

Partition walls made of Jansen steel profiles allow the installation of maximum glass formats; these constructions appear correspondingly generous. The non-insulated steel profile system Art' 15, for example, is perfectly suited for interior finishing in new and existing buildings. Thanks to its improved acoustic and odour barrier, odour and noise nuisances can be reliably avoided.

Weather - Safe protection in all weathers

Windows, doors and façades made of steel profile systems reliably withstand wind pressure even in stormy weather. The wind load to be expected depends primarily on the location of the building.

Healthy living - protection from harmful vapours

Our nose is a sensitive organ. In a fraction of a second, it can distinguish the smell of fragrant flowers (good) from that of musty mold (toxic). But with many modern substances, our brains are unable to distinguish odours beyond doubt - some that smell good may well be toxic. Health protection in connection with building products is a topic that is becoming increasingly important with the advent of building chemical products.

DIN EN ISO 16000 addresses the contamination of indoor air by building products. The main focus is on so-called VOCs (volatile organic compounds), i.e. volatile organic compounds. These occur primarily in paints, adhesives or sealants and are most frequently encountered immediately after application. Many of these gaseous substances can be quickly eliminated by ventilation. Others persist because the building material used continues to emit VOCs for days or weeks

This can manifest itself in physical discomfort, up to and including serious damage to health.

In order to also take this health aspect into account, Jansen develops all systems taking into account the requirements of DIN EN ISO 16000. Tightly closing windows and doors protect us from unpleasant odours from outside. But even inside the building it can be desirable to prevent an unpleasant odour from spreading. Transparent partition walls are a solution that is both helpful and elegant when it comes to containing odours and noises without impairing the view.
