Ceiling Solutions for a Better Way to Learn
ROCKFON ceiling systems help students, teachers and staff benefit from optimized acoustics, healthy and safe indoor environments, sustainability and aesthetics.
Improving Students Learning and Understanding
Students’ concentration and understanding their lessons also has a deep connection with their ability to hear their instructors. “Creating a good acoustic experience improves learning and understanding. Every student should have the same opportunity to hear and understand what is being said. Due to its fiber structure, stone wool is one of those high-performing, sound-absorptive materials. It provides ROCKFON ceilings, baffles and islands with excellent noise reduction capabilities,” explains ROCKFON acoustic specialist Gary Madaras.
Marshall continues, “ROCKFON ceilings provide a great line of defense against indoor health hazards and support the newest educational building codes and regulations. Our ROCKFON stone wool ceiling panels are resistant to mold, bacteria and humidity, and are GreenGuard Gold Certified for low VOCs. This stringent certification process considers safety factors that may impact people who are more vulnerable, such as children and seniors.”
In addition to referencing GreenGuard Gold certification, the U.S. Green Building Council’s LEED ratings also promote the advantages of daylighting for sustainable buildings. The white surface of ROCKFON ceilings can reflect up to 86 percent of available light. This better distribution of natural light helps educational facilities to lower electric lighting loads and reduce cooling costs, saving both energy and associated costs.
