PARAFON Direct

Parafon Direct Open Ceiling Edge A
PARAFON Direct is an acoustic tile specially designed for the best sound absorption and function with direct installation on suspended ceilings using adhesive. The surface is covered with Classic coloured glass-fibre fabric and the straight edges are painted and can be left visible if desired. PARAFON Direct allows quick improvement of sound absorption in problematic acoustic environments such as e.g. stairwells, laundry rooms, assembly halls and canteens. Direct offers the highest fire classification – A1 – in accordance with EN 13501-1 and has a core of non-combustible mineral wool that remains dimensionally stable even at very high temperatures in the event of a fire.
