Around 1,200m2 of Rockfon’s 1,200x600mm Black ceiling tiles were specified for the McDonald’s restaurant at the London 2012 Olympic Park to enhance the design and atmosphere of the space. The tiles also offer very high sound absorption, which is essential for busy fast-food outlets, along with excellent fire safety and resistance to humidity. 480m2 of Rockfon Color-all Beige tiles were also supplied to a smaller outlet on site. Importantly for the temporary outlet, all Rockfon ceiling tiles are fully recyclable.
A re-use or recycle policy was applied to every item possible in the restaurant.
Rockfon worked closely with the main contractor, Barlow Group, to co-ordinate the return of all the ceilings to the Rockwool factory inSouth Waleswhen the restaurants were decommissioned. The 24 pallets of returned materials were then crushed and combined with raw materials to create new Rockwool insulation products.
