Taylor adds, “Our technical services team also can assist with project-specific product selection of metal ceilings for interior or exterior applications.”
Performance plus sustainability
Whether panel or plank, linear or curved, Rockfon can acoustically enhance its metal ceiling products. With perforations in the metal and a fibrous matt on top of the panel, it can absorb 90 percent of the sound that strikes it, expressed as a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.90.
In addition to optimizing acoustics, Rockfon metal ceiling systems can contribute to occupants’ peace of mind by meeting rigorous performance requirements for wind loads, humidity, fire, earthquakes and sustainability. Because the products are made of metal, they do not absorb water and do not contain organic compounds that would support mold or microbial growth. These attributes support indoor air quality and occupant health.
The durability of metal ceiling systems assists in reducing waste to landfills, too. Metal ceiling systems can approach 85 percent recycled material content and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their useful life as a ceiling. With minimal maintenance, these systems have shown to deliver reliable performance for decades.
