We are the ‘Shh.’ in thoughtful classrooms
As students need to concentrate to obtain the knowledge required in their education, a noisy classroom can have a deep impact on their ability to learn. Excessively noisy conditions impact students’ health, the way they think as well as their overall academic performance.
Sound and noise can travel a long time after it has been made as it passes through the products’ surface and part of the energy is being reflected into space. Rockfon offers a variety of acoustic ceiling systems made with the combination of stone wool and ceiling panels. The stone wool efficiently absorbs the noise or sound where it is transformed from sound energy into minuscule amounts of heat energy. Our ceiling systems are a fast and simple way to create better acoustics to limit sound reverberation and comfortable spaces with a “shh” atmosphere.
A proper sound absorption controls the ambient sound pressure levels in a space where speech intelligibility is raised so conversations become easier to understand. The quality of sound absorption is determined by the sound solution. To achieve high levels of acoustic comfort it is all about the layout of the space.
How to create great acoustic environments to limit noise pollution:
Acoustic design tips:
- Use high-quality sound-absorbing materials to reduce the sound and prevent it from spreading
- Stone wool is our core materials as it is by nature highly sound-absorbent and promote high levels of acoustic comfort.
- Use thicker and more sound-absorbing materials around parameters in the room to optimise the sound reduction
What can be done to secure better surroundings for students?
Reducing the level of distraction and noise can be challenging as the educational spaces need to continue to be a flexible, engaging, and inspiring environment. Major contributors to obtain that are light and sound.
Rockfon® Artic™ satisfies these requirements which is why it was installed in classrooms. It has a smooth, white surface which offers optimum light reflection, contributing to a comfortable environment. Rockfon® ArticTM also provides enhanced sound absorption to ensure teachers can communicate so that students can perform at their best.
Rockfon Blanka® has been engineered to create comfortable and brighter indoor environments. With the smooth, deep, matt, and super-white surface it contributes to high light reflection and light diffusion. Rockfon Blanka® has high sound absorption to control the sound and reduce stress while boosting productivity, focus, learning, health and well-being.
Rockfon® ScholorTM harmonises with the interior and control noise.
Create brighter spaces with great acoustics that align with the contemporary interior. It provides good impact resistance and complies with BB93 Acoustics for Schools. Aesthetically the tiles were the perfect fit because the white surface finish enhances the school’s minimalist design.
Rockfon® Tropic™ D concealed edge ceiling tiles were specifically chosen for the special needs unit. Rockfon Tropic provides Class A sound absorption help create a learning environment that offers optimum speech intelligibility which is essential for all children, but particularly those with learning difficulties
