Posted on November 13th, 2023 by Heather West
Rockfon proudly presents an addition to its North American portfolio range: Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic ceiling systems. This stone wool monolithic ceiling solution creates a smooth, seamless, uninterrupted surface with best-level sound-absorption. For years, these products have inspired European architects, design professionals and their clients. Now, they are available in select regions of North America supported with qualified, certified installers. These areas currently include the U.S. Northeast and Texas, and Ontario, with more being added.
Rockfon Mono Acoustic systems combine high-end aesthetic appeal with the high-performance benefits of stone wool, including acoustic comfort with a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) up to 0.95, Class A fire protection, healthy indoor air quality, high light reflectance, moisture and sag resistance, and long-lasting durability. Stone wool naturally resists moisture, mold and mildew, and gives no sustenance to microorganisms. Rockfon Mono Acoustic ceiling panels have earned UL® Environment GREENGUARD® certification for low VOC emissions.
The modern, clean, visually continuous Rockfon Mono Acoustic ceilings are well-suited for flat or curved applications with direct-mount or suspended installations in either newly built or renovated commercial interiors. They also may be used for angled and arched transitions and also on sloped or vertical walls.
A choice of three Rockfon Mono Acoustic tapered edge (TE) ceiling systems are offered:
• Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic TE attaches to Chicago Metallic™ Drywall Suspension
• Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic TE Direct adheres to existing smooth, flat surfaces
• Rockfon® Mono® Acoustic TE Flecto attaches to concave or convex surfaces
Each of these systems is backed with a 15-year limited product warranty.
“Continuing to expand on our complete portfolio range, we’re proud to offer Rockfon Mono Acoustic ceiling systems. These elegant ceilings combine a premium, smooth, flowing appearance with unmatched acoustic performance in spaces designed for conversation, contemplation and comfort,” said Tom Smith, Rockfon’s business development manager. “Any interior space where drywall or acoustical plaster ceilings are considered, Mono Acoustic can provide an elegant look with improved acoustics.”
Smith suggests applications beyond the expansive monolithic ceilings seen in spacious lobbies and central corridors. He recommends pairing this elevated aesthetic with optimized acoustics in classrooms, meeting rooms, restaurants, libraries, galleries, places of worship, hospitals and medical clinics, and transportation centers.
