Superior Acoustics for Enhanced Learning

Rockfon’s sound-absorbing ceiling panels have proven to be instrumental in optimizing acoustics, significantly reducing noise levels and enhancing the overall learning experience at Wylie Campus. The acoustic stone wool ceiling panels from Rockfon offer a high level of sound absorption, resulting in a more focused and productive educational environment. The Alaska acoustic stone wool ceiling panels, chosen extensively for installation across all three buildings, boast an impressive noise reduction coefficient (NRC) of 0.90. This exceptional sound absorption capability minimizes distractions, allowing students and teachers to communicate effectively and concentrate on their work.

Minimized Glare and Eye Strain

In addition to their acoustic properties, Rockfon’s white stone wool panels effectively minimize glare on screens and monitors. The reflected and diffused light from these panels helps reduce eye strain and associated headaches, creating a comfortable learning environment. With Rockfon’s panels, Wylie Campus ensures that students and faculty can engage in their activities without discomfort, promoting better focus and productivity.

Commitment to Indoor Air Quality

At Wylie Campus, the well-being of occupants is a top priority. That’s why all the stone wool ceiling products selected from Rockfon are ULĀ® GREENGUARDĀ® Gold Certified for low emissions. This stringent certification recognizes Rockfon’s commitment to supporting indoor air quality, which contributes to healthier interiors in educational environments. As a proud distributor of Rockfon products, we share this commitment and are proud to offer solutions that prioritize the health and well-being of students and staff.

Unmatched Performance and Sustainability

Rockfon Alaska acoustic stone wool ceiling panels, with their smooth, white surface, not only offer superior sound absorption but also reflect 86% of light, carrying outside natural light deeper into the building’s interior core. This dual functionality reduces the need for artificial lighting, creating an energy-efficient and visually pleasing learning environment. Additionally, Rockfon Alaska is supported by an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), Health Product Declaration (HPD), and Declare Label, providing design teams with additional assurance when creating healthy, safe, and sustainable spaces.

Tailored Solutions for Every Space

Understanding the unique requirements of different spaces, Rockfon offers a range of products to ensure a perfect fit. For smaller, enclosed rooms, the Rockfon Artic acoustic stone wool ceiling panels are the ideal choice. These panels, available in basic white and 2-by-2-foot sizes with square tegular edges, provide both visual appeal and sound absorption capabilities. With an NRC of 0.75 and 85% light reflectance, the Rockfon Artic panels strike a perfect balance, ensuring a tranquil environment while maximizing natural light.

Rockfon Hygienic Plus panels have proved invaluable in meeting multiple performance requirements in the student center’s kitchen. These panels offer high light reflectance, excellent sound absorption, low particle emissions, Class A fire performance, cleanability, and durability, ensuring a safe and functional space for students and staff.

Seamless Installation with Modular Sizing

Rockfon’s commitment to providing versatile solutions is further evident in their modular sizing, which facilitates easy installation. The modular sizes of Rockfon Hygienic, Alaska, and Artic ceiling panels perfectly complement Chicago Metallic suspension systems, offering a seamless and efficient installation process. From the library, where the narrower, exposed grid of the Chicago Metallic 4000 Tempra 9/16-inch is utilized, to rooms with open plenums where Rockfon Islands in 4-by-4 and 4-by-8-foot sizes are directly suspended, Rockfon’s products provide flexibility and optimized acoustics.
