CertainTeed Redefines the Traditional Look of Wood in New High-Performance, Fire-Rated Wall & Ceiling Panel
(Malvern, Pa.) – The natural warmth, depth and richness of wood have long made it a favorite ceiling and wall panel material among architects and designers. However, there is an emphasis on products that blend the visual aesthetic of wood with the added features and benefits of acoustical performance and safety. CertainTeed Ceilings® is answering the call with the introduction of Decoustics Rondolo™. The line of custom micro-perforated acoustic wood panels and planks merges the elegant look of wood with the lowest flame spread rating and superior sound absorption properties.
The enhanced customization aspects of Decoustics Rondolo provides unmatched design flexibility for a seamless wood look in ceiling or wall panel applications. Featuring the look of a solid wood panel, micro perforations virtually disappear at a distance, giving the appearance of a monolithic wood panel. All Decoustics Rondolo panels can be custom-engineered in a wide range of unique shapes and sizes that can compliment any design.
“We thrive on delivering products that create dramatic spaces to enrich the built environment,” says Simone Abele, Director, Sales & Marketing for Decoustics. “Ultimately, occupant safety is always of utmost importance and one of our top priorities. We not only obtained individual component certification, but also assembly approval for the fully finished product, making Rondolo unmatched in its category.”
Decoustics Rondolo is the only one in its class to achieve a Class A rating based on third party ASTM E84 testing on finished composite panels along with a Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) values of up to 0.95. The panels are manufactured from no-added urea formaldehyde (NAUF), releasing minimal volatile organic compounds (VOCs) that are found in many building materials.
Decoustics Rondolo is engineered for a precise fit and delivered on-site ready for installation. Panels can be integrated into Decoustics’ suspension and mounting systems, including Decoustics’ 100% downwardly accessible Ceilencio® system.
