Whitest ceiling tile ever

After years of research and testing with architects and installers, ROCKFON® has developed their smoothest, whitest ceiling tile ever: ROCKFON Blanka™

In association with

A perfectly white ceiling is what architects want, but has been difficult to attain without sacrificing other technical properties – until now. ROCKFON managing director, Anders Juhl Thomsen explains why they’ve developed a visibly whiter tile:

'To take suspended ceilings to the next level, we asked our customers what the ultimate improvement would be to them. The architects said they want a ceiling that combines aesthetics – especially whiteness and smoothness – with technical performance, such as fire resistance and acoustics. Installers and building owners look for simple installation and a long lifecycle. Choosing a ceiling shouldn’t be a trade-off between properties, so we decided to create a ceiling that delivers it all in one tile.'

The solution to achieving a whiter than white ceiling was literally out of this world. By applying a specialist coating sourced from the US space industry to a high performance stone wool core, ROCKFON has developed an incredibly durable, matt ceiling tile that is visibly smoother and significantly whiter. The ultra-white tiles have outstanding light reflection and light diffusion properties to maximise the uniform spread of natural light. Independent tests show that the range has a light reflection index above 87 percent and an L Value of 94.5+, which makes it their whitest ceiling tile ever.

Thanks to this unique coating, the tiles have a smooth surface that allows for easy installation because they are patternless and can be installed in any direction, saving time and reducing waste. Surface durability tests rate ROCKFON Blanka top of its class. The anti-static properties of the coating also make it resistant to site dust. The tiles are easy to wipe clean with a damp cloth. The tiles are designed to be hard-wearing and can resist up to 100 percent relative humidity without losing shape.

ROCKFON Blanka delivers all the unique stone wool performance characteristics you would expect from ROCKFON, including outstanding acoustic performance and fire safety properties.The tiles are produced from up to 42 percent recycled materials, are fully recyclable and come with a 15 year warranty.

The ROCKFON Blanka range is available in ceiling tiles for sound absorption and sound insulation, as well as a complimentary wall panel range. They are all available in a variety of sizes and edge details to provide architects with complete design freedom.
