Rockfon Sonar Stone Wool Ceiling Panels Optimize Design Freedom And High Performance

Rockfon Sonar stone wool ceiling panels
Chicago  -- With a large selection of edge styles, sizes and formats, Rockfon® Sonar™ stone wool ceiling panels offer optimal design freedom and high performance. The panels’ lightly textured white surface delivers high light reflectance to maximize daylighting, high fire performance to support safety and high sound absorption to increase speech intelligibility.
Rockfon Sonar ceiling panels are a popular choice for open-plan offices, classrooms, retail shops and cafes, health care waiting rooms, as well as multifunctional rooms, corridors, meeting rooms, foyers, lobbies and reception areas. “We help architects, designers and the whole building team create inspired spaces that are more productive spaces to work, more promising places to learn, and more welcoming environments to support optimal healing and care,” said Cory Nevins, ROCKFON’s director of marketing for North America.

Nevins continued, “Rockfon Sonar ceiling panels make the most of the design team’s flexibility and creativity. They can help better define areas and functions in a particular space, or create a unique look by spanning planks across entire corridors. The ceiling panels’ edge design significantly affects the ceiling’s overall appearance, whether choosing a clean, monolithic aesthetic or a deeply recessed profile that highlights the grid with elegant shadows.”
