Privacy in modern commercial buildings can only effectively be achieved with a total approach to room acoustics and structural elements. This approach addresses sound transmission through walls, flanking transmission through ceiling plenums, doors and windows, and effective sound absorption in large open plan areas. Many allegedly high sound insulating ceiling panels fail to deliver acceptable levels of privacy in practice. Most are tested without penetrations resulting in overstated performance compared to results achieved in service.
Rockfon Privacy System employs a more rational approach to optimize privacy and room acoustics in office construction. The two key aspects to privacy form the basis of the Rockfon system; they are, room acoustics and room to room sound attenuation.
