Rockfon's Medical Standard tile features all basic cleaning and hygienic properties for use in health care. This tile does not contribute to the growth of MRSA and has a low particle emission (ISO Class 5, ISO14644-1) for better air cleanliness. Medical Standard tiles feature excellent sound absorption (NRC = 0.90), high fire performance and high light reflectance (LR = 0.86). This tile is best used for health care administration, waiting areas, nursing offices and corridors, and is available in square lay-in and square tegular.
Stone wool (Mineral Wool) ceiling tiles.
Factory painted glass scrim.
Surface burning characteristics: UL723 (ASTM E84) Flame Spread Index 0, Smoke developed Index 0 (UL Labeled). CAN/ ULC S102 Flame Spread Index 10, Smoke developed Index 5.
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 harmful micro-organisms.
Rockfon Medical Standard has been tested with the following micro-organisms and has obtained the bacteriological class B5 and B10 (NF S 90-351):
• 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
The surface can be vacuum cleaned with a soft brush attachment. It can also be cleaned using a damp cloth with cold or warm water (max. 104 °F) with a slightly alkaline detergent (pH between 7 and 9) without alcohol, ammonia or chlorine. 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.
Particles emitted by building materials can increase the risk of infection spreading in health care buildings. Due to its low particle emission, Rockfon Medical Standard meets stringent requirements for air cleanliness. Rockfon Medical Standard is classified ISO Class 5 in accordance with ISO14644-1.
