Many old buildings have asbestos coatings on the ceiling to control noise reverberation and give thermal acoustic insulation.  When the decision is taken for specialist contractors to remove it, an asbestos replacement is needed.

Asbestos replacement case study

St Thomas the Apostle Church, London

“This is Edward Maufe’s finest church”, a comment by Elain Harwood in her listing report to English Hertitage. 

A recent major refurbishment to this grade II* listed building included the removal of asbestos from the Chancel, Nave and Sedilia followed by the installation of an asbestos replacement maintaining the flowing lines of the magnificent arches.  After research by acoustic consultants Peninsular Acoustics an acoustic decorative coating of SonaSpray fc in off white was proposed at 25mm thick as the asbestos replacement.  The proposal was studied and approved by English Heritage.

Following the work carried out by Oscar Acoustics, the church's vicar was extremely pleased with the improvements to the church acoustics.  Building acoustic tests were carried out by Peninsular Acoustics that confirmed the required church acoustic conditions had been achieved.  

SonaSpray the ideal asbestos replacement for any building project

For any type of public building space you want visitors to enjoy their time there in an inviting, warm and comfortable space.  If the space has poor building acoustics people will struggle to hear any part of the service and will find it a stressful and unpleasant environment to be in.  The solutions are good structural design and an acoustic treatment such as one of our SonaSpray ranges.  The ideal asbestos replacement.
