This On Demand CEU is a recorded presentation from a previously live webinar event. Architects, Specifiers, Interior Designers, and Building Science professionals all have a long history of specifying stone wool for their insulation and sound absorption needs. Fire resistance, sound resistance, water resistance, thermal resistance and dimensional stability are all features and benefits of stone wool. This presentation will provide learners with information regarding the features and benefits of using stone wool acoustical ceiling tiles. In addition, the course will provide basic information on acoustics as well as the acoustical challenges and resolutions faced in commercial buildings.

Learning Objectives

  • Analyze the different types of grid systems used with acoustical ceilings.
  • Identify characteristics of stone wool including features and benefits.
  • Examine acoustic impact on commercial buildings as well as the challenges faces and resolutions for specifiers.
  • Explore opportunities for sustainability and LEED credit potential by specifying stone wool.

Pre-Requisite: Basic knowledge of sound mitigation strategies.
