High-performing acoustic ceiling solutions designed to inspire

We spend nearly 90 percent of our time indoors according to the EPA1. Rockfon minimizes disruptive sound and supports occupant well-being in the workplace.

Modern workplaces are built with high-performing materials and are designed to inspire. Office design should contribute to employee well-being and job satisfaction. With more than 90 percent of an organization's operating costs linked to employee efficiency2, it’s critical to create spaces that attract and retain talent. Office ceiling systems can have a positive effect on the bottom line3. Ceiling designs for offices must optimize the acoustics through a high Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC)4, enhance the design and appearance and support sustainability. Designers and building owners face strict requirements like LEED, WELL and Green Globes™. Acoustic performance is one of the many metrics that must meet building standards and rating systems. With stone wool and metal acoustic ceiling tiles that work within Rockfon suspension systems, architects and designers have the freedom to create the perfect ceiling solution for both new construction and renovation projects that help meet building requirements.

Improving employee experience through acoustic ceiling tiles

The category that ranks the lowest in employee satisfaction in the workplace is acoustic experience. More than half of office workers reported that they are dissatisfied with their level of “speech privacy,” making it the leading complaint in offices everywhere5.

Employees need workspaces that encourage both team cooperation and individual efficiency. Office workers spend 62 percent of their time doing quiet work6. Their concentration and comfort are affected directly by the noise within their surrounding environments. This, in turn, influences their accuracy, efficiency, productivity and well-being. Even small changes in their acoustic experience may have a significant impact on employee well-being. Sound-absorbing, high-NRC (.80 and above) acoustic ceiling panels also help to reduce unwanted noise and its negative impact on occupants in large, open office and co-working spaces. Office ceiling tiles that absorb sound at high performance levels also meet today's strict acoustics standards.7
