SonaSpray & SoundBlox are commercially unbeatable when addressing industrial noise control problems

SonaSpray spray-on decorative acoustic finish is commercially unbeatable when addressing industrial noise control problems.  It can be quickly and effectively applied to most prepared surfaces and construction configurations.  This allows minimum working down time in existing structures and the ability to meet critical deadlines in new construction.  

An empty factory shell with hard walls, floors and ceilings will always be a reverberation chamber magnifying noise if it isn't treated acoustically.  SonaSpray applied to the ceiling and walls at high level absorbs sound instead of reflecting it back into the factory.  The result is reduced reverberation times and noise levels and therefore a much safer working space.

Industrial Noise Control

Industrial noise control for new and existing builds

Industrial Noise Control

When noise is generated by machinery/manufacturing operations and reflected from hard surfaces it can increase noise levels in the area by up to 15dBA.  This is no longer a problem once SonaSpray is applied as the noise and reverberation is absorbed by the acoustic treatment. 

Industrial noise control becomes a much more manageable problem, simple screens become very effective in protecting operators from direct machine noise and noise levels in the adjoining offices are significantly lower.  Better all round building acoustics provided with the application of SonaSpray.

H V Wooding took this approach for their new factory extension at Hythe in Kent and are very pleased with the results.  An acoustic consultant calculated a predicted reverberation time of over 2 seconds prior to the build but with the inclusion of our absorptive construction materials this was reduced to 0.6 seconds.  This is a huge benefit when dealing with industrial noise control in the workplace.

Acoustic building materials for ultimate industrial noise control 

SonaSpray K-13 Special - Decorative acoustic ceiling and wall spray

SonaSpray K-13 Special sprayed onto a ceiling in a single 35mm decorative coating absorbs 100% of noise at the mid band frequencies of 500Hz – 2KHz lightweight and fire rated class 0 to BS476 part 6.  

The features & benefits of SonaSpray K-13 Special industrial acoustic insulation:

  • For Building Materials emissions this industrial acoustic insulation achieves M1 certification.
  • Offers ultimate industrial noise control in factories and warehouses by absorbing sound energy instead of reflecting it, thereby reducing reverberation times and overall noise levels.
  • Industrial sound insulation: Insulates by creating dead air macroscopic spaces between and within the hollow cellulose fibres.
  • Contributes to humidity and condensation control by absorbing large amounts of water vapour and releasing it when the humidity levels drop.  This helps to provide a healthy and well balanced working environment.
  • Can contribute up to 17 points to the overall LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating of a project.
  • Can be spray applied to almost any configuration of substrate.
  • Thermal noise reduction insulation and condensation control.
  • A total system with in-built treatment for fire and mould resistance.

SonaSpray is used in hundreds of locations across the UK including schools, community halls, atriums, offices, factory industrial noise control; almost any interior space with a reverberation problem.

SoundBlox - Acoustic masonry building sound blocks

These acoustic building blocks absorb noise by using Helmholst resonator principles and perform well at the difficult lower frequencies; 98% absorption is possible at 125Hz!  A standard building block will absorb about 4%.  SoundBlox are laid along with standard masonry blocks, applications: Industrial noise control for factorires, warehouses, manufacturing, workshops, sports halls, exhibition halls, road/rail acoustic barriers and more.
