ROCKFON® Sonar™ honored with a Product Innovation Award
Architectural Products magazine selected ROCKFON Sonar® acoustic stone wool ceiling panels as a winning entry in the 2015 Product Innovation Awards
Judged by a group of 35 independent industry professionals, the Architectural Products Product Innovation Awards determine and honor innovation in the development and refinement of buildings-related products that range from cladding systems to interior finishes.
“Building on the success of last year’s program, our fifth edition of the awards proves commercial building manufacturers are committed to, and are working arduously toward, delivering more sustainable products, as well as products that deliver better performance, life and affordability,” said Jim Crockett, editorial director of Architectural Products.
Helping improve acoustics in open-plan offices and other commercial interiors, ROCKFON Sonar ceiling panels achieve Noise Reduction Coefficients (NRC) as high as 0.95. Available in a wide range of standard sizes, styles and formats, Rockfon Sonar ceiling panels contribute to commercial projects’ creative designs, industry-leading performance and sustainability goals.
In support of the winning nomination, Rene Jean, AIA, CAPR, architect with Jorge Rossello Interior Designers & Space Planners, praised the products saying: “Overall, ROCKFON’s aesthetics and functionality are awesome… We liked the larger panel sizes available in ROCKFON Sonar along with the nice white surface. Once we learned that it met the very high NRC and fire rating, and also is a green product, we knew this was what we needed. It performs really well and looks beautiful.”
Jean and his colleagues recently specified ROCKFON Sonar for a renovation and expansion of Tocars Toyota in Toa Baja, Puerto Rico. A combined total of 8,100 square feet of ROCKFON ceiling panels were installed by ADRILEX Construction Services, Inc.
“It was a very easy installation. The contractors are happy. The owners are very happy,” said Jean. “We are looking forward to specifying this innovative product in our future projects. ROCKFON’s team, especially the local representative, has been very helpful, diligent and efficient throughout the project.”
