Healthy indoor environments aid recovery

The noise found in modern hospitals is caused by a variety of sources which include patients, staff, visitors, medical alerts and other lifesaving technology, making these healthcare environments often unable to meet the acoustic levels recommended by the World Health Organisation. 

“In hospital environments, noise control is very important to the recovery of patients, as ‘unwanted sound’ can increase heart rate, blood pressure and respiration rates.”

However, using the correct materials can provide patients with great indoor acoustics and privacy, supporting them in their recovery. Part of the ROCKWOOL Group, Rockfon provides a complete acoustic ceiling range, combining stone wool ceiling tiles with suspension systems and accessories.

Our ceiling systems are a fast and simple way to create beautiful, comfortable spaces. They offer the highest class of fire safety (Class A1), excellent sound absorption (Class A) are resistant to all ubiquitous bacteria, including MRSA, and ensure dimensional stability at humidity levels of up to 100 per cent RH.

We are very proud to have been awarded ‘Recommended Supplier’ to the NHS and social care construction schemes in England by the Department of Health (DH) via its ProCure22 (P22) administered framework. The appointment is proof of the trust and belief the DH and NHS have in the Rockfon team and its product ranges.
