SonaSpray consists of recycled, natural plant-based fibres and specialist water-based adhesives.
Eco-friendly acoustic finishes
SonaSpray architectural acoustic finishes are high grade, recycled cellulose paper and specialist water-based adhesives, treated to achieve a Class 0 fire rating and any acoustic performance required. They are Class 0 fire rated to BS476 and achieve a European B – s1, d0 with full fire tests available on request. They also benefit from Stage 4 BIM objects and are included within the very latest NBS software.
The SonaSpray range contributes towards many sustainable design and health certification systems including BREEAM, SKA, Living Building Challenge and adds up to 17 points towards the LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) rating of a project.

WELL Building Standard
SonaSpray contributes towards satisfying many features under the WELL Building Standard®: an international performance-based system for measuring, certifying and monitoring features of the built environment that impact human health and wellbeing, through air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, comfort and mind, with a mission to improve human health and wellbeing through the built environment.
And there is no finer reference for our spray applied products than Delos, the company that founded the WELL Building Standard using SonaSpray fcx throughout their new HQ. The architects Gensler recommended the product to the client’s specification team who were looking for materials with very specific environmental qualities. As you would expect, this building is built to the very highest standard of WELL and to achieve LEED v4 Platinum and Living Building Challenge certification.
Indoor environmental and air quality
SonaSpray finishes are M1 Classified (the best classification possible) as Low Emitting Building Materials, are compliant with CDPH/ CA Section 01350 and are GREENGUARD Gold Certified for Indoor Air Quality. GREENGUARD Gold Products are now confirmed to show compliance with BREEAM rating system HEA Indoor Air Quality and ensure that a product has met some of the world’s most rigorous and comprehensive standards for low emissions of VOC’s into indoor air. The range is also covered by an Environmental Product Declaration in accordance with ISO 14025 and meets the requirements of the Living Building Challenge and LEED.
The SonaSpray range consists of recycled, natural plant-based fibres and specialist water-based adhesives.
Renewable & raw ingredients
Cellulose, the primary raw ingredient of SonaSpray, contains wood, cotton and other rapidly renewable natural resources. These materials can effectively lower the carbon footprint of the building project by sequestering rich stores of carbon for the life of the structure or application.
Product quality and consistency is also of major importance so is under continual development. When using new materials, it is easy to control this but recycled content has to be the priority. In order to control this, SonaSpray is manufactured by ICC to ISO 9001 and is installed using an Oscar Acoustics four stage quality assurance plan.
UK's greenest project case study
The SonaSpray range has been included in some of the UK’s greenest projects, including The Enterprise Centre at the University of East Anglia, which was dubbed by the press as ‘the UK’s Greenest Building’, achieved Passivhaus standard, BREEAM outstanding rating and 31 accolades including RIBA Sustainable Project of The Year, BREEAM Awards Best Education Project and Passivhaus Trust Award.
Oscar Acoustics have architectural acoustic finishes available for all sectors - offices, schools/universities, restaurants, film/television studios, sports arenas, industrial, leisure centres, entertainment venues and much more.
