Morin Bros. brings Rock­fon’s stone wool acous­tic ceil­ings to Ot­tawa

Fire per­for­mance that must be seen to be be­lieved. Re­sis­tance to mois­ture, mould and mildew. In­su­la­tion and re­flec­tive prop­er­ties that max­i­mize nat­u­ral light­ing and help re­duce en­ergy costs. Un­par­al­leled acous­tic per­for­mance that doesn’t sacrifice the aes­thet­ics in­te­rior de­sign­ers want. Th­ese are the dis­tin­guish­ing char­ac­ter­is­tics of stone wool acous­tic ceil­ings from Rock­fon, and the only sup­plier in Ot­tawa that has them is Morin Bros. Build­ing Sup­plies.

Over the past 28 years, Morin Bros. has be­come the source that con­trac­tors, ar­chi­tects, en­gi­neers and de­sign­ers can rely on for their most chal­leng­ing and am­bi­tious projects.

Founded by sib­lings Claude, Ger­ald and Daniel, Morin Bros. spe­cial­izes in ceil­ing, dry­wall, in­su­la­tion, steel studs, open­ings and ex­te­rior fin­ish­ing sys­tems. Its knowl­edge­able staff has the ex­per­tise con­trac­tors, ren­o­va­tors and other build­ing pro­fes­sion­als can trust.

“We bring our cus­tomers peace of mind when it comes to lo­cal prod­uct support and chal­leng­ing job re­quire­ments,” said Claude Morin. “And we are al­ways look­ing for in­no­va­tive new prod­ucts that will give them more op­tions. Morin Bros. is proud to be the first to bring Rock­fon’s stone wool ceil­ing prod­ucts to the Ot­tawa mar­ket.”


Morin Bros. is al­ready a lo­cal distrib­u­tor for the beau­ti­ful and ver­sa­tile metal ceil­ing sys­tems from Chicago Metal­lic. Rock­fon, a long-es­tab­lished name in Europe, has made its foray into the North Amer­i­can mar­ket through the ac­qui­si­tion of Chicago Metal­lic.

Acous­tic ceil­ings made of stone wool are Rock­fon’s hall­mark. But what is stone wool?

Stone wool is a nat­u­ral byprod­uct of vol­canic ac­tiv­ity, mak­ing it a re­new­able and plen­ti­ful re­source. It’s made from basalt, and by re­cy­cling waste ma­te­rial from the steel in­dus­try. Rock­fon’s par­ent company, the ROCK­WOOL Group of Den­mark, has spent more than 70 years im­prov­ing the pro­duc­tion process and re­search­ing new ap­pli­ca­tions, such as acous­tic ceil­ing sys­tems.

Stone wool ceil­ing pan­els are avail­able in 34 dif­fer­ent colours and var­i­ous fin­ishes, sizes and edges, with in­stal­la­tion op­tions that in­clude di­rect mount and con­cealed grid.

Rock­fon’s di­verse prod­uct line can fit any project, from of­fice ren­o­va­tions on a bud­get, to the most de­mand­ing hy­giene and con­tain­ment re­quire­ments of med­i­cal fa­cil­i­ties.


But stone wool is much more than just good looks. Rock­fon’s acous­ti­cal ceil­ings:

• Are non-com­bustible. They do not con­trib­ute to the spread of fire, and can with­stand tem­per­a­tures up to 2,150 F. Pro­vide ex­cel­lent in­su­la­tion, and re­flect 83-85 per cent of avail­able light to dif­fuse hot spots and glare. This im­proves en­ergy ef­fi­ciency and eases eye strain. Are easy to clean, low par­ti­cle-emit­ting and low VOC.

• Do not support the growth or spread of harm­ful micro­organ­isms. Are light­weight and im­pact and hu­mid­ity resistant. Pro­vide su­pe­rior acous­tic per­for­mance for speech in­tel­li­gi­bil­ity and pri­vacy that out­per­forms ri­val prod­ucts in ev­ery price cat­e­gory. And it of­fers this with a smooth fin­ish, un­like the un­sightly per­fo­ra­tions typ­i­cal of ri­val prod­ucts that make de­sign­ers cringe.

“Stone wool ceil­ings are a fast and sim­ple way to cre­ate beau­ti­ful, com­fort­able and safe spa­ces,” said Scott Deben­ham, Rock­fon’s Area Sales Man­ager for On­tario. “They’re easy to in­stall and durable, they pro­tect peo­ple from noise and the spread of fire. It is Rock­fon’s way of mak­ing a con­struc­tive con­tri­bu­tion to­wards a sus­tain­able fu­ture.”
