Safe and sound with SonaSpray asbestos replacement

If you're looking to remove asbestos from a building, more often than not you're going to need to find something to replace it with.  Our SonaSpray range of recycled, acoustic decorative finishes offer a safe asbestos replacement for any space.

SonaSpray is manufactured from non-hazardous, recycled materials and is available in a range of colours and textures to suit all projects and budgets.  SonaSpray can be applied to ceilings or walls between 6mm and 100mm thick, in one quick and easy application. 

SonaSpray's Class 0 to BS476 and B-s1,d0 fire rating provides significant benefits over the new Approved Document B requirements by providing little to no smoke and absolutely no droplets, assisting in the safe escape of occupants.  This makes it the ideal asbestos replacement.

Asbestos replacement case study

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, a safe asbestos replacement is needed.

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 major refurbishment to this grade II* listed building needed to include the removal of asbestos from the Chancel, Nave and Sedilia.  It then needed a safe asbestos replacement which could both control noise and maintain the flowing lines of the magnificent arches.  After research by acoustic consultants Peninsular Acoustics, our SonaSpray fc in off-white was chosen at 25mm thick as the asbestos replacement.  The proposal was studied and approved by English Heritage.

Following the work carried out by Oscar Acoustics specialist installers, the church's vicar was over the moon with the improvements to the church acoustics.  Tests were carried out by Peninsular Acoustics that confirmed the required acoustic conditions had been achieved with this safe asbestos replacement.
