Daiken Excel-Tone MR offers high-quality acoustic mineral fibre ceiling tiles at competitive prices.
Ceiling and partition system distributor, Capco, offers a comprehensive range of ceiling systems sourced from quality international and local manufacturers. The ceiling system includes unique designer trims that allow architects, designers and contractors to create distinctive individual ceiling designs that add aesthetic value to an area.
One of their flagship products, Daiken Excel-Tone MR, is a 99% RH-resistant, pre-painted, white, acoustic mineral fibre ceiling tile system. The tiles are made from rockwool fibres and special moisture-resistant binders. The mineral fibres are uniformly interwoven by a unique wet-felting process to form rigid board and tiles that are fire-resistant.
The benefits of Daiken Excel-Tone MR include superior sound absorption, effective thermal insulation, outstanding fire resistance as well as a ten-year guarantee on the product.
Superior sound absorption
The sound absorption and insulation characteristics are ideal for environments such as schools, hospitals and offices, where comfortable and quiet rooms are needed. The percentage of airborne sound absorbed by the ceiling within a room is 55 to 60%. The level of sound in decibels that will be stopped by the ceiling tile from room to room is 36db.
Thermal insulation and Relative Humidity Resistance
Clients will be able to save on cooling and heating costs thanks to the effective thermal insulation properties. The amount of relative humidity that the tile will resist to a maximum temperature is 99% at 50°C. Normally with mineral fibre tiles binders deteriorate, causing tiles to sag. At 100%, RH precipitation occurs so 99% RH resistant is excellent. The product can even be used without air conditioning.
The ten-year guarantee of Daiken Excel-Tone MR is valid if the relative humidity is kept below 99% and the temperature below 50°C. The maximum allowable sag is L/360. A person will also be able to maximise natural lighting, seeing as 75% of the light in the room will be reflected from the ceiling tile.
Sustainable ceiling products
A total of 76% of the material content in the ceiling tile is post-industrial and post-consumer (that is recycled material), making it an environmentally-friendly option for the next project.
Thermal resistance is now legislated in South Africa for Climatic zones 1 -6. The thermal resistance (R-value) of Daiken Excel-Tone MR is 0,334m²k/w, so it will contribute to R-values when combined with the appropriate insulation, correct void and roof construction to reach the appropriate value for the following climate zones.
Easy to integrate and competitive prices
The ceiling tiles can be easily integrated with all other service needs of the building, including conditioning, lighting including spot lights, sprinklers, audio systems and CO2 detection together with the ceiling grid. The ceiling tiles are durable, easy to clean and washable, paintable (with non-bridging PVA paint), and Capco has replacement parts as well as back-up service options when needed.
When it comes to investing in a ceiling solution that offers all the acoustic, humidity resistance and integration benefits that an architect needs, Daiken Excel Tone MR offers value for money. Daiken is one of the most competitive mineral fibre tiles of this high quality in the world. For more information, contact Capco today.
