Rockfon now provides educational courses on ceiling design considerations and best practices. Current programs include: “Suspended Ceilings and Acoustical Solutions using Stone Wool” and “Designing with Metal Ceilings." Both are one-hour, in-person presentations approved through the American Institute of Architects’ Continuing Education Systems.

“Suspended Ceilings and Acoustical Solutions Using Stone Wool” explains the features and benefits of stone wool acoustical ceiling panels and metal ceiling suspension systems. Participants also will gain an understanding of acoustical challenges and resolutions for commercial buildings’ ceilings, and how to create safer indoor environments with increased fire protection, mold and mildew resistance and improved indoor air quality.

“Designing with Metal Ceilings” teaches participants about the development of commercial ceilings in the U.S., the design elements, performance considerations and code requirements. The course offers an overview on the construction and finish options for metal ceilings. Applicable ASTM standards for metal ceilings are reviewed, such as corrosion resistance, acoustic performance and life safety. Product applications for different project types also are shared.

“With in-person presentations, attendees have the opportunity to ask general questions, as well as to address specific issues for their commercial building projects and local geographies,” said Chris Marshall, director of architectural sales for North America.

Registered architects may earn 1.0 Health, Safety, Welfare Learning Unit (HSW LU) for successfully completing each AIA/CES course from ROCKFON. Equivalent credits may be available from other professional associations. To schedule a presentation, please contact
