The Strengths of Stone

There is something truly remarkable about turning an abundant natural resource into products that enrich modern life. Rockfon leverages the strengths of stone, including fire resilience, acoustic properties, circularity, and more to create uniquely useful and exciting solutions for our customers.

Stone wool (or mineral wool) was discovered on the islands of Hawaii around the beginning of the nineteenth century and occurs as a natural byproduct of volcanic activity. There is something exciting about turning an abundant natural resource into products that enrich modern life.

In its manufactured state, stone wool delivers unique benefits in building products such as ceiling tiles and panels. In part due to its non-directional fiber orientation, stone wool also exhibits unique benefits which have come to be known as the 7 strengths of stone.

Backed by Credentials

Many of today’s leading design codes and guides recognize the need for improved acoustics and high sound absorption to deliver a comfortable environment suitable for the building’s end-use. The Rockfon Stone Wool Story Book provides details on the comprehensive range of environmental and sustainable credentials all our products are supported by.

Ceiling materials with low emission levels, natural resistance to mold and microorganisms, and high acoustic comfort contribute to improved indoor environmental quality (IEQ). The health and wellness benefits of IEQ, including mitigating poor indoor air quality (IAQ), are recognized by LEED, WELL and other green building standards.
