LEED and Sustainable Ceilings


3/15/2018

Rockfon LEED v4 Solution Guide supports design professionals’ creativity and commitment to pursuing sustainable and LEED-certified buildings. A downloadable copy of this new, eight-page publication is available here.

“Helping building teams tackle many of today’s biggest sustainability and development challenges, Rockfon offers thoughtfully designed, innovative, sustainable solutions to benefit the comfort, health and safety of occupants, and the environment,” says Christian Kofod, sustainability manager at Rockfon. 

The new solution guide assists with acoustic ceiling product selection – whether in a stone wool panel, a metal plank or an open plenum system. Navigating the many features, benefits and options of Rockfon ceiling systems, the brochure:

  • Shares an overview of Rockfon products and production facilities
  • Showcases several LEED-certified projects featuring its ceiling products
  • Describes the renewable and recycled composition of its products
  • Details how its product attributes contribute to such LEED credit categories as Materials & Resources and Indoor Environmental Quality (EQ)


Along with the guide’s informative text, a comprehensive product table notes the light reflectance (LR), noise reduction coefficient (NRC) and recycled content relevant for LEED EQ. In addition, the chart notes that Rockfon metal products have no-emitting materials and that its full portfolio of stone wool products have been UL® Environment’s GreenGuard Gold Certified for low-emitting products.

“As the U.S. Green Building Council and other organizations urge product manufacturers to become more transparent about their material sourcing and ingredients, we welcome the opportunity for this important discussion,” continues Kofod.

Not only can Rockfon provide Environmental Product Declarations, it also has key suppliers sign a Code of Conduct. The company has adopted the ICC Business Charter for Sustainable Development – Principles for Environmental Management, where its suppliers are required to ensure their own suppliers meet the same standards.
