ROCKFON introduces Optimized Acoustics
Written by: Editor
Article The ROCKFON Group announces Optimized Acoustics,™ an easy approach to meeting both the sound absorption and blocking criteria of today’s commercial interiors, with the style of a smooth-finished ceiling system, while keeping on budget.

“There is a misconception that ceilings alone can block sound between rooms when the wall does not extend up higher than the ceilings. The reality is that most modular, acoustic ceilings by themselves, do not have enough mass to block sound effectively,” explains Gary Madaras, PhD, Assoc. AIA, acoustics specialist at the ROCKFON Group. “Building standards and guidelines are evolving with more stringent acoustic requirements. Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC), which indicates a ceiling's ability to block sound, is no longer a part of most acoustic standards, guidelines and building rating systems."

Madaras continues, “ROCKFON's approach is simple: Select a ceiling system to optimize absorption and where needed, use walls or plenum barriers to effectively block sound between rooms. This approach results in designs that comply with current standards and achieve the best sound experience at the best price.”

Supporting this thoughtful approach, OptimizedAcoustics.com serves as a digital hub of educational resources and tools on acoustical performance and ceiling systems. Visitors explore paths highlighting acoustic considerations for form and function, myths and truths, as well as technical descriptions, product selection metrics, and benefits for occupants and owners.

The ROCKFON Group offers an extensive portfolio of ceiling systems for optimizing the acoustic experience of commercial interiors, including sound-absorbing ceiling panels, baffles and islands.
