Rockfon by Rockwool provides;
Passive fire resistance.
Handles moisture by either repelling liquid water or letting water vapour easily pass through it.
Is sustainable and health safe.
Everywhere you look, new, modern spaces are coming to life and while these open-concept spaces promote communication and collaboration, they also increase one main challenge – noise. Now more than ever going beyond good acoustics is as important as the look, feel and function of a space. And it starts by choosing the right ceiling material to achieve the best level of sound absorption for your space. There’s a lot of noise out there. Take your acoustic design to the optimised level.
With fires developing five to 10 times faster today than in the 1950s, the safety of building occupants and fire fighters depends overwhelmingly on how the building performs during a fire. Importantly, this includes the release of thick toxic smoke, which kills more people than the fire does.
Given stone wool’s volcanic origins, it can withstand extreme temperatures up to 1177 Celsius. All of these beneficial qualities of stonewool contribute to adding the critical moments needed to find safety in the event of a fire.
Beyond the modern monolithic look of smooth, white, 2×2 panel-and-grid drop ceiling system solutions, today’s interior ceiling design ideas explore many different styles from a bold accent to a subtle shadow to a signature, custom creation.
Providing design flexibility and inspiration, our breadth of acoustic ceiling systems meet almost any décor and aesthetic you can imagine with:
Colourful acoustic tiles, shiny anodized aluminium panels, black baffles or wood-look metal planks
Coordinating or dramatically contrasting finished suspension systems
Smooth or lightly textured stone wool surfaces
Lay-in square edge tiles, angled tegular profiles or concealed grid systems
Large format or rectangular sizes
Staggered patterns or customized layouts
Standard or custom metal perforations
Concave or convex curves and arches
With some acoustical ceiling tiles, humidity can weaken the structure of their materials and cause them to sag, drooping beneath their ceiling suspension system. In extreme cases, sagging ceiling tiles may even fall out of their grid. This often will happen in buildings under construction, where the building is not yet temperature-controlled and humidity-controlled, or materials have not yet dried.
Rockfon stone wool ceiling panels do not warp, curl or cup. They do not rot nor corrode. With virtually no organic content, they are naturally resistant toward mould, mildew and microorganisms. There is no risk of sagging – even inconsistently ”wet” rooms like kitchens, restrooms and pool areas.
Because our stone wool and metal ceiling products are not organic, they do not promote the growth of mould or bacteria. Through their inherent material makeup, there is no need to incorporate fungicides or antimicrobials to achieve these mould-resistant properties.
Building material surfaces, including ceiling tiles, play an important role in controlling the spread of bacteria and infection. To create a safe environment:
These materials should not provide nourishment for potentially harmful microorganisms.
Their surfaces should be easy to clean and disinfect without affecting their appearance or performance.
The ceiling panels also should be durable and demountable to accommodate any necessary maintenance in the plenum.
The raw materials that rockwool is manufactured from, basalt, anorthosite and carbonates, are regarded as inexhaustible reserves. These reserves are renewable in a geological sense.
