Rockfon's Medical Plus tile can be cleaned with diluted solutions of ammonia, chlorine, quaternary ammonium and hydrogen peroxide. It can also be cleaned and disinfected effectively by steam cleaning. Medical Plus tile does not contribute to the growth of MRSA, has a low particle emission (ISO Class 4, ISO14644-1) for better air cleanliness and excellent sound absorption (NRC = 0.90). The rear side of the panel is covered by a back fleece and the edges are sealed. Medical Plus tile also allows for optimal design freedom due to a large selection of edge designations (see below). This tile is best used in emergency rooms, treatment rooms, patient rooms, delivery rooms, small surgeries, radiology and laboratories.
Stone wool (Mineral Wool) ceiling tiles.
Factory painted glass scrim.
Surface burning characteristics: UL723 (ASTM E84) Flame Spread Index 0, Smoke developed Index 5 (UL Labeled). CAN/ ULC S102 Flame Spread Index 5, Smoke developed Index 0.
Type XX - Stone wool base with membrane-faced overlay, Pattern E.
ROCKFON ceiling tiles are dimensionally stable even at high humidity levels of up to 100% relative humidity and can be installed at all temperatures ranging from 32 °F to 104 °F. No acclimatization is needed. ROCKFON ceiling tiles can be installed during the very early stage of the build (when windows are not fully sealed) without any risk of deflection of the tiles. The low weight, stability and nonhygroscopic character of ROCKFON tiles will limit the weight of the fully installed ceiling whilst retaining its declared properties even when applied in infrequently heated and unheated rooms without condensation.
The product fulfils requirements for low emitting acoustic ceiling tiles and meets the California Department of Health Services Standard Method V1.1 (February 2012) “Standard method for the Testing and Evaluation of Volatile Organic Chemical Emissions from Indoor Sources Using Environmental Chambers (Section 01350).” Selected potential applications: LEED, CHPS and CALGreen. All ROCKFON stone wool acoustic ceiling solutions are GREENGUARD Gold certified to GREENGUARD standards for low chemical emissions into indoor air during product usage.
ROCKFON ceiling tiles are made of water repellent stone wool. Stone wool has no nutritional value and therefore it provides no sustenance to the following micro-organisms tested in accordance with JIS Z 2801:2000 and ASTM C 1338-96:
– Eschericia coli
– Stachybotrys chartarum
– Staphylococcus aureus
– Penicillium brevicumpactum
– Alternaria tenuissima
– Aspergillus niger
– Sporobolomyces roseum
– Rhodotorula rubra
– Methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (MRSA)
Rockfon Medical Plus has been tested with the following micro-organisms and has obtained the bacteriological class B1 (NF S 90-351, best class):
• Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus Aureus (MRSA): bacteria resistant against antibiotics and responsible for post-surgery infections and septicaemias
• Candida Albicans: yeast responsible for skin infections and pneumonias
• Aspergillus Niger: mould responsible for pneumonias
Rockfon Medical Plus can be effectively disinfected by steam cleaning. The bactericidal and fungicidal effect of steam cleaning on Medical Plus has been tested.
The surface of Rockfon Medical Plus has enhanced resistance and is highly waterrepellent. It it treated to minimize dirt pick-up and finger marking – this being essential for ease of installation and frequent demounting for access to services. The surface can be vacuum-cleaned with a soft brush attachment and it resists diluted solutions of the following: ammonia, chlorine, quaternary ammonium and hydrogen peroxide. Cleaning with a sponge or damp cloth may render the surface slightly shinier and we therefore recommend cleaning the whole surface evenly for best results. Rockfon Medical Plus can also be cleaned and disinfected twice a year by steam cleaning following a protocol defined by experts and using an adapted surface mop.
Particles emitted by building materials can increase the risk of infection spreading in health care buildings. Due to its low particle emission, MediCare Plus meets stringent requirements for air cleanliness. Rockfon Medical Plus is classified ISO Class 4 in accordance with ISO14644-1.
