    Rockfon makes an impact at Scottish Academy

    3rd October 2012

    The pupils and staff at Elgin Academy in Moray are now enjoying state-of-the-art learning facilities in a brand new school building. Designed to offer more flexible space to cater for different forms of teaching, it also provides modern sports facilities and social areas for both school and community use. The Moray Council specified compliance with Building Bulletin 93 throughout the school, and a wide selection of Rockfon ceiling and wall solutions, supplied by Nevill Long, have been installed to achieve this.

    Within the classrooms and main circulation zones, Rockfon Alaska and Koral ceiling tiles were used to provide attractive, smooth white surfaces with high functionality. Rockfon Koral combines a micro-textured surface with excellent acoustic, fire safety and humidity resistance properties, and the wide variety of sizes and formats available in the Alaska range are ideal for virtually any application.

    A higher level of sound insulation for controlling unwanted noise from room to room was needed for the music and drama rooms, so Rockfon Alaska dB40 tiles were installed to these areas. It provides enhanced sound insulation as well as a high level of sound absorption, with a smooth matt white surface.

    The assembly hall and adjacent dining area provide a large, flexible space for school and community use, but the high ceilings and hard, reflective surfaces posed an acoustic challenge for this busy area. A traditional suspended ceiling was not viable, so Rockfon Scholar wall absorbers were directly fixed to the walls instead. Scholar is reinforced with a concealed mesh between the aesthetically pleasing surface and the stone wool core to offer medium impact resistance and good sound absorption. It is ideal for fixing at high level in school classrooms and communal spaces where there is a medium risk of occasional impact.

    While in the new gymnasium, the risk of impact is significantly higher. To address this issue, Rockfon’s Samson wall absorbers were used. Their strong woven surface ensures excellent impact resistance and high sound absorption in sports activity areas.
