Rockfon Stone Wool Acoustic Ceilings Offer Superior Performance

Stone wool is a natural building material that blends rock characteristics with the benefits of fiber-based building products. The result is a line of acoustic ceiling tiles and panels that offers more durability than traditional fiberglass products. Rockfon ceiling tiles offer numerous properties that make them superior in safety and function compared to other acoustic ceiling tiles.

Class A Fire Protection

In commercial construction, fire safety is a constant consideration. With its origins in volcanic rock, Rockfon stone wool can naturally withstand temperatures up to 2150°F. The non-combustible material will not contribute to the spread of fire, even if directly exposed to flames. Rockfon suspended ceiling systems have earned a Class A rating for flame and smoke, offering superior fire resistance that meets or exceeds code requirements.

Better Sound Absorption

Noise is also a safety concern in buildings. A poor acoustic environment can cause short- and long-term health problems, affecting everything from sleep to behavior. Ambient noise can also cause distraction, fatigue, and difficulty in understanding speech. Whether in schools, hospitals, or offices, superior acoustic ceiling tiles can optimize learning, healing, and working environments. The stone wool core of Rockfon ceiling tiles offers excellent sound absorption, with an NRC (Noise Reduction Coefficient) rating of 0.70 to 0.90.

Superior Strength and Stability

Stone wool withstands changes in heat and cold without expanding or contracting, and it won’t absorb water or retain moisture – even in conditions of 100% humidity. That means Rockfon acoustic ceiling tiles won’t sag, rot, or corrode, even in high-moisture environments, such as kitchens, bathrooms, and pool areas.

Exceptional Air Quality

Mold and mildew need moisture and a food source to survive. Since Rockfon’s stone wool acoustic ceiling tiles contain no organic matter, they never become a breeding ground for harmful fungi or bacteria, which can adversely affect the indoor air quality of any space.

Thermal Insulation

Rockfon ceiling tiles include a built-in layer of thermal insulation that saves time and money on other insulation.
