Acoustic ceiling baffles provide a sound-absorbing, aesthetically appealing option for quieter, more comfortable and attractive interior spaces.

Rockfon® Contour™ vertical hanging ceiling baffles are made from acoustic stone wool for high sound absorption. Our innovative, frameless baffle ceiling system is engineered for fast and easy installation.

Once the ceiling baffles are installed, the reduced noise often is immediately apparent to the occupants.

Balancing acoustics and aesthetics

Our Rockfon Contour hanging ceiling baffles deliver an alternative, acoustic solution in challenging spaces when typical acoustic grid and ceiling suspension systems may not be feasible. In historic buildings, baffles can be installed around high windows, structural beams, pillars, and other obstacles to maintain the existing architecture, while improving acoustic performance.

With a sharp, minimalistic edge and a subtle, elegant bevel, our frameless baffles hang vertically to create a visually appealing design feature. For a contemporary, linear look, baffle systems also can be used in open plenum ceiling designs to mask the structure above it.

Ideally suited for acoustical corrections in renovations and retrofits, they also are a smart choice in new restaurants and cafés, museums, call centers, manufacturing facilities and open-plan offices.

Supporting sustainable goals

Rockfon Contour features a smooth texture and white color on both sides to optimize light reflection (LR 0.79). High light reflection supports daylighting and energy efficiency.

Contributing to the building’s other sustainable goals, Rockfon Contour ceiling baffles also support LEED® v4 criteria for Materials and Resources, Indoor Environmental Quality, and include up to 42 percent recycled content.

Part of our extensive portfolio of stone wool acoustic ceiling products, Rockfon Contour baffles also have earned UL® Environment’s GREENGUARD Gold Certification for low-emitting products. Stone wool also is water-repellent and provides no sustenance to harmful microorganisms. These benefits are recognized not only by LEED, but also by The WELL Building StandardCHPSGreen GlobesBREEAM International and CALGreen.
