Optimise office acoustics with our Rockfon dB tile range, a unique combination of high sound absorption and sound insulation.

We see what you hear

What makes the office space an acoustical challenge is that it consists of multiple room types, from the open plan office, where absorbing sound and controlling the sound level is vital for a good indoor climate, to adjoining offices and meeting rooms, where privacy and confidentiality is key and where you wish to contain the sound.

With the Rockfon dB range you do not need to compromise. The unique combination of both high sound insulation AND sound absorption lets you create the optimal acoustic work environment no matter your space.

Our dB product range is available in two surfaces: Rockfon® Sonar® dB, with an attractive micro-textured surface and Rockfon Blanka® dB, which features a smooth and superwhite coating.

The surfaces offer:

  • Unique combination of both high sound insulation AND absorption
  • Multiple edges and dimensions
  • Elegant and versatile surfaces
  • Low weight product

Understanding the power of sound

Modern offices have to be flexible enough to accommodate an increasingly diverse range of activities, uses and employees, providing access to adequately soundproofed areas when extra concentration, creativity or privacy are required. It’s hard to focus with other distractions in the room, and staff conversations, phone calls and machinery can seriously hinder productivity.

Even small improvements to office acoustics can result in important productivity returns

A unique combination

Acoustic well-being is determined primarily by sound absorption and sound insulation. To help explain the different needs and different acoustics of the modern office, we sat down with Acoustician Per Trojgaard from Lloyd's Register to discuss the duality of office acoustics.

It isn’t just the sound insulation capabilities of a product that affect the amount of noise being transferred from an adjacent room; the sound absorbing properties of the product will also have a positive influence. Something which is NOT reflected in the Dn,f,w values.

Sound Absorption and Sound Insulation

Acoustic well-being is determined primarily by sound absorption and sound insulation.

Ceilings with the same sound insulation (dB) value, but different sound absorption levels, will result in different sound pressure levels.

Low absorption ceiling

When the sound source room has a ceiling with low sound absorption, it results in high sound pressure and poor reverberation. Even if the ceiling provides good sound insulation, the sound being transmitted is higher than it would be with a ceiling with absorption.

Mid absorption ceiling

When a room has a ceiling with improved sound absorption, it results in lower sound pressure as part of the sound is absorbed. Combined with good sound insulation it will result in less noise being transmitted than in the previous case.

High absorption ceiling

A combination of both high sound absorption and high sound insulation results in a comfortable acoustic space with great acoustic privacy.

The high absorption results in low sound pressure in the source room, as much of noise is absorbed by the ceiling, which also results in less sound being transmitted to the adjoining room. When the receiving room also has a high absorbing ceiling, the sound pressure level will further decrease as the remaining sound entering the room is absorbed.
