Suspended Ceilings image

Suspended Ceilings

ROCKFON® acoustic ceiling tiles have performance advantages made possible by a raw material found only in ROCKFON™® products: stone wool. Stone wool is produced from volcanic rock, or basalt, which features unique properties that give stone wool a number of superior performance characteristics and attributes. Make the most of your flexibility and creativity with numerous choices in tiles, plank sizes and patterns. Available in standard 2x2 and 2x4 formats or larger, ROCKFON® ceilings can help you better define areas and functions in a particular space, or create a unique look by spanning planks across entire corridors.

The Importance of Acoustics image

The Importance of Acoustics

Ambient noise levels affect people'™s health by increasing general stress levels. Continued exposure does not lead to habituation; in fact, the effects worsen (National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health).
Fire Performance image

Fire Performance

Stone wool, the core material of our stone wool products, can withstand temperatures up to 2150°ree:F (1177°ree:C). It does not contribute to the development and spread of fire. It is made from basalt rock and is non-combustible.
Humidity resistance image

Humidity resistance

Rockfon® stone wool ceiling panels are dimensionally stable at up to 100% relative humidity.

Humidity can weaken the structure of certain ceiling materials and cause them to sag. In extreme cases they may even fall out of the grid.

This will often happen in buildings under construction where the building is not hermetically sealed or materials have not dried out. Additionally, humidity levels are naturally high in wet rooms like kitchens and sanitary areas, and moisture problems can occur.

Rockfon stone wool ceiling panels are dimensionally stable at up to 100% relative humidity. They can be installed at temperatures ranging from 32 ™F to 104 ™F. No acclimatization is necessary, and Rockfon stone wool ceiling panels can be installed in the early stages of construction (when the windows are not fully sealed) without any risk of sagging.
Indoor Climate image

Indoor Climate

Factors that affect the indoor climate are the Indoor Environment, Light Reflection, Cleanliness and Hygiene. ROCKFON stone wool ceilings contribute to a better indoor environment by offering low particle emission and excellent insulating properties. ROCKFON stone wool ceilings offer superior light reflection and diffusion which reduces energy usage. The ROCKFON product range meets all cleaning requirements. Stone wool is water repellent and has no nutritional value. The ROCKFON Medical range offers three levels of performance designed to meet the requirements of zones with different levels of infection risk.

Light Reflection
Impact Resistance image

Impact Resistance

Heavy wear and tear requires impact resistant ceiling panels.

Impact resistance of construction materials is an important issue in schools and gyms.Ceilings in these kinds of areas need to be able to withstand tougher-than-average wear and tear as well as frequent mounting and demounting.

Reinforced surface

Rockfon® Impact™ ceiling panels feature a reinforced surface. These impact-resistant ceilings also offer all the advantages of Rockfon stone wool tiles: fire safety, sound absorption, ease of installation and humidity resistance.
