Stone wool ceiling supplier and wall solutions provider Rokfon has used its technical expertise and knowledge to create two informative and enjoyable RIBA accredited CPDs. The courses, which meet the RIBA core curriculum subjects (‘Designing and Building it: design, construction, technology’ and ‘Engineering and Compliance: legal, regulatory, statutory frameworks and processes’), offer learners double points upon successful completion.

The CPDs explore and explain the unique benefits of using stone wool—a by-product of volcanic activity and therefore a renewable resource—in acoustic ceilings and wall solutions and their suitability for all indoor environments.

Both CPDs have been very well received, with one architect from a major firm stating, “My colleagues and I were impressed with the CPD from Rockfon. We loved the discussion on architecture and around how to achieve the best performance results without having to compromise on aesthetics. Rockfon really understands our needs and challenges when it comes to acoustics and design.”

‘Interior Acoustic Surfaces for Monolithic Architecture’ is a must for all architects and designers involved in monolithic building designs. Traditionally, to achieve good acoustics it is necessary to install a tiled, suspended ceiling which could affect the aesthetics of a room. Now, appearances need not be compromised: monolithic systems made from natural stone wool can achieve Class A sound absorption with a seamless finish.

The following topics will be covered in this course:

What is Monolithic architecture?
Designing for both the eyes and the ears.
Traditional ways of achieving monolithic acoustic finishes.
Today’s modern, monolithic solution to achieve great aesthetics and acoustics.
The unique benefits of stone wool monolithic acoustic ceiling and walls.
The creative options available for any commercial or residential project that requires a smooth and elegant monolithic surface with outstanding sound absorption for acoustic comfort.

‘Natural Benefits of Stone Wool for Acoustic Ceilings and Walls’ explains how to create spaces which protect people from unwanted noise and the spread of fire, all the while making a valuable contribution to a sustainable future. Rockfon manufactures a comprehensive range of acoustic solutions including ceiling tiles, baffles, wall absorbers and islands, all made from an entirely stone wool core.

The following topics will be covered in this course:

Superior design, aesthetics and ease of installation.
Exceptional fire resistance and acoustic characteristics.
Dimensional stability, even in up to 100% relative humidity.
Non-hygroscopic surface prevents harmful micro-organisms.
100% recyclable – Rockfon upcycle too, reducing waste.

CPD seminars are taught by one of the Rockfon team who will always be happy to share their knowledge, answer any questions and offer advice. The seminars are held in the architect’s office, last 45 minutes and a lunch buffet is provided. Everyone who attends receives a certificate of CPD attainment.
