Sonaspray:

Seamless acoustic treatment and thermal finish.

SonaSpray®  is highly decorative spray-on seamless acoustic and thermal treatment. Made from recycled cellulose fiber, Sonaspray can be applied on almost any surface type and contour. It has a lightly textured finish, but is also available in a smooth finish for an even more inconspicuous look.

Boasting excellent sound absorption capabilities, great environmental credentials, a solid fire rating, and significant reductions in program time, Sonaspray® is winning favour among Ireland’s top architects and contactors.

Thermal Solution

Sonaspray is an excellent thermal insulater as it is totally seamless. The patented adhesive fills cracks, voids, and seams in the substrate and stops unnecessary leakage. 

In addition to this, Sonaspray’s fiberous composition create a dead air space in between the fibres to it an R-Value of 3.75 per inch, contributing to very low heat-loss characteristics.

Acoustic Control

 

Sound control is an issue the we are becoming more aware of in modern building design. Sonaspray absorbs (rather than reflects) excessive noise through it fibres.

Tests have been performed on Sonaspray in various thicknesses in accordance with ASTM c 423, which produces a NRC rating. (Noise reduction coefficient)

Custom colours and textures

Sonaspray is available in 7 standard colours. Custom colours are available at an extra cost. 

Textures: 

There is a wide variety of textures available. Sonaprays superior composition coupled with our 20 years of experience installing sonaspray allows for smooth, plaster-like finishes if required.

Environmental 

Sonaspray is composed of 80% recycled cellulose fibre. The production requires less embodied energy than other comparable building materials. Sonaspray is UL GREENGUARD GOLD certified and manufactured under the ISO 9001:2015 quality management system. Sonaspray contains no hazardous or harmful chemicals and contributes to LEED v4 credits.

Testimonials

We engaged Absolute Acoustics to install Sonaspray for one of our clients. Neal and the team provided excellent service with great technical backup. I would highly recommend Absolute Acoustics and will certainly be working with them in the future.

Michael - MAC Interiors (April, 2019)

We had the Absolute Acoustics on a recent project for one of our blue chip clients and from start to finish the service provided was that of a tier one contractor. The product supplied arrived to site on time and as agreed the staff completing the install are a credit to the service provided by Absolute Acoustics. From tender stage all the way to completion of install they were on top of their game, I look forward to a strong working relationship for many years to come.
