Metal Ceiling Panels Meet Acoustic Goals
Rockfon offers metal ceiling panels, planks, linear and open plenum systems to match the aesthetic, acoustic and sustainability needs of nearly any commercial building design. These systems can be incorporated into all projects from airport terminals and train stations, to shopping malls and casino floors, to office lobbies and hospital corridors, to school classrooms and college stadiums.
"Architects and designers use our metal ceiling systems to create beautiful, comfortable spaces that enrich modern living, support sustainability and provide peace of mind. Choosing from a breadth of sizes, colors, curves and perforations, they achieve the look they want and the performance they need," says Rockfon's Mark Taylor. "Contractors also appreciate these cost-competitive ceiling systems and their ease of installation, contributing to labor savings and on-time completion."
Rockfon metal ceiling products are available in:
- Planostile lay-in and snap-in panels
- Spanair clip-in and torsion spring concealed panels
- Spanair hook-in and hook-on planks
- Planar, Planar Plus, Planar Macro and Macroplus linear systems
- Beamgrid, Cubegrid and Magna T-cell open plenum ceiling systems
These products are paired with Chicago Metallic suspension systems and Infinity perimeter trim for a complete ceiling solution. Taylor adds, "Our technical services team also can assist with project-specific product selection of metal ceilings for interior or exterior applications."
Whether panel or plank, linear or curved, Rockfon can acoustically enhance its metal ceiling products. With perforations in the metal and a fibrous matt on top of the panel, it can absorb 90 percent of the sound that strikes it, expressed as a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) of 0.90.
In addition to optimizing acoustics, Rockfon metal ceiling systems can contribute to occupants' peace of mind by meeting rigorous performance requirements for wind loads, humidity, fire, earthquakes and sustainability. Because the products are made of metal, they do not absorb water and do not contain organic compounds that would support mold or microbial growth. These attributes support indoor air quality and occupant health.
The durability of metal ceiling systems assists in reducing waste to landfills, too. Metal ceiling systems can approach 85 percent recycled material content and are 100 percent recyclable at the end of their useful life as a ceiling. With minimal maintenance, these systems have shown to deliver reliable performance for decades.
