Building certifications

If you are looking to certify a building using BREEAM (UK), HQE (France), DGNB (Germany), LEED (US) or other programmes, Rockfon products can help you achieve your goals by delivering products and solutions with documented properties.

In today’s world, buildings need to go beyond being simply “green” and become sustainable. They should contribute to improving social and economic issues such as health, wellbeing, efficiency and life cycle costs.

Rockfon ceilings fit the bill. Due to their relatively low mass, suspended ceilings have a very low environmental impact, when compared to other elements in the building. They also contribute actively to sustainability by creating a comfortable acoustic environment, helping increase user productivity and wellbeing, and being highly durable.

This list details the main criteria for acoustic ceiling tiles that are measured by the different building certification programmes (Source: Deutsche Bank research Key sustainability and Rockfon).
