Rockfon has introduced its Plenum Barrier Board, created to improve sound isolation and privacy between rooms in commercial interiors. Combining plenum barriers with the performance of Rockfon ceiling systems, sound isolation – tested up to STC 52 – can be achieved between adjacent rooms without needing to build bulkheads above demountable partition systems or extend the walls to full height.

Used in either new construction or post-occupancy remediation, Rockfon Plenum Barrier Board is suited for corporate settings between private offices and meeting rooms, schools and universities between classrooms, and health care facilities between patient, exam and treatment rooms.

The Rockfon Plenum Barrier Board foil-faced, stone wool barrier installs above interior partitions with ease. It is placed vertically in the plenum above the ceiling along interior walls that stop at ceiling height. It conforms around pipes and ducts, and expands and contracts with deflection.

In addition to its acoustic qualities, stone wool resists humidity, fire and water. It has no nutritional value and therefore, it provides no sustenance to harmful microorganisms or mold. These attributes and the advantages offered by Rockfon complete ceiling systems contribute to safe, healthy, sustainable, and comfortable buildings.
