Rockfon - Growing businessNovember 17, 2017
Rockfon likes challenges. Design consultancy OPX Global presented them with its challenge to update the AES Corporation's headquarters to meet several design criteria:
- Productive work environment for individuals and teams
- Optimized acoustics for privacy, noise and communication effectiveness
- Collaboration in the office and with people in other locations
Located in Virginia, the company mission focuses on "improving lives by providing safe, reliable and sustainable energy solutions." Bringing this concept to life within the office design, Rockfon stone wool ceiling systems contribute to each of these solutions:
SAFE - stone wool products offer high fire safety;
resist humidity, mold and mildew; contribute to indoor air quality and are GREENGUARD Gold low-VOC
certified; in addition, metal suspension systems are suitable for seismic applications.
RELIABLE - lightweight and durable, Rockfon's systems are easy to install, minimize buildings' maintenance and repair, simplify renovation and
are backed with an industry-leading warranty.
SUSTAINABLE - panels and suspension systems
are produced from recycled material and are
recyclable at the end of their useful lives as ceiling systems; and the white surface of Rockfon stone wool panels provides high light reflectance
to maximize natural light, allowing for reduced light fixtures and increased energy savings.
