Helping building teams tackle many of today’s biggest sustainability and development challenges, Rockfon offers thoughtfully designed, innovative, sustainable solutions to benefit the comfort, health and safety of occupants, and the environment.

Freedom of Choice

“Rockfon LEED v4 Solution Guide” assists in making the right choice for acoustic ceiling product selection – whether in a stone wool panel, a metal plank or an open plenum system.

Navigating the many advantages and options of our ceiling systems, the brochure:

  • Shares an overview of our products and production facilities
  • Showcases several LEED-certified projects featuring our ceiling products
  • Describes the renewable and recycled composition of our products
  • Details how our product attributes contribute to such LEED credit categories as Materials & Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ)

Product Performance

Along with the guide’s informative text, a comprehensive product table notes the light reflectance (LR), noise reduction coefficient (NRC) and recycled content relevant for LEED EQ.

In addition, the chart notes that Rockfon metal products have no-emitting materials and all of our stone wool products have been UL® Environment’s GreenGuard Gold Certified for low-emitting products.

Proof of Principles

As the U.S. Green Building Council and other organizations urge product manufacturers to become more transparent about their material sourcing and ingredients, Rockfon welcomes the opportunity for this important discussion.

Not only can we provide our customers with Environmental Product Declarations, our key suppliers also sign a Code of Conduct. We have adopted the ICC Business Charter for Sustainable Development – Principles for Environmental Management, where our suppliers are required to ensure their own suppliers meet the same standards.

Our commitment is further demonstrated and documented through our corporate governance published in the Rockfon Annual Report, as well as the Rockfon Sustainability Report.
