Christ Community Church

With this soaring 40ā€™ ceiling, the architectural firm of Trapani & Associates knew there would be a focal point that would make sermons almost impossible to hear due to echo. The SonaSpray ā€œfcā€, applied at a 1ā€ thickness, not only removed their concerns but provided an attractive finish against the contrasting massive beams that support the structure.

Can one provide thermal performance, acoustical control, light reflectivity and look beautiful all in one application? Ask the parishioners at St. Athanasius. Following the asbestos removal, K-13 was selected as the replacement due to its ability to provide the multi functioning requirements of this application. The application is also concealing over 500 feet of conduit which is surface mounted to the concrete roof deck.

The true test of any acoustical control material is the ability to perform without being the center of attention. This latest application of SonaSpray "fc" is the perfect example of being heard and not seen. The ability of SonaSpray "fc" to conform to any shape and substrate made it the perfect choice. The economical spray application allows the true architectural design of the space to shine through without any visual distractions.

How do you provide acoustical enhancement along with thermal performance in a saddleback structure? This 2.76” application of K-13 not only fit the bill, but also looks fantastic. The application, which was retrofitted into the space, concealed the maze of conduit and miscellaneous ceiling mounted wiring for what appears to be a seamless transition. As a finishing touch, the material was tamped to ensure long term aesthetics.

Sharp clean lines are what come to mind in the review of this recently completed application of SonaKrete at the new South Shore Baptist Church in Hingham Massachusetts. Troweled several times during application, SonaKrete offers unparalleled Noise Reduction Coefficients while maintaining a texture that is barely visible from the floor. Finally there is a high performance spray-on product that does not sacrifice architectural appearance for true acoustical control.

Christian Life Church

Nothing is more difficult than to control reverberation in a geodesic dome. This application of SonaSpray “fc” is not the first, however, for the Christian Life Assembly of God Church. The original application, which was completed in 1994, was destroyed by a storm which damaged the roof and structural members. The owners demanded that SonaSpray “fc” become part of the rebuild. The 9,000 square foot application provides the church with an NRC of .75 creating just the right amount of acoustical control.

Dramatic appearance and fantastic acoustics were the final results of this extremely difficult application of Dark Red K-13. The acoustical material was applied at 2.2" between 16" on-center wood roof rafters, and the remainder of the wood was painted to match. The slates, which give an appearance of depth, were added following the application. The versatility of K-13 in conforming to a multitude of angles and pitches along with custom color made it the first choice in this application

This spectacular before and after is thanks to 3 special colors of K-13"fc" and magnificent 150 year old architecture. Following an asbestos removal procedure, K-13"fc" was selected for its ability to be manufactured in any color. The color matching of the historic colors was completed in approximately 2 weeks with the custom material delivered to the job site ready for application. Due to the irregular substrate, the K-13"fc" was rolled and over sprayed to ensure an even layer of acoustical material. The 4 week operation, including scaffolding removal, was completed on time 3 days before a scheduled wedding.

This simple but effective application of SonaSpray"fc" was retrofitted over a three day period without alterations to lighting or electrical fixtures. Unfortunately during construction of this new facility, acoustics were not a major concern, it was not until the sound system was tested did designers realize the severity of the problem. Applied at .5", Noise Reduction Coefficient of .65, the SonaSpray has lowered the reverberation time and made gatherings an enjoyable experience for the parishioners of the United Methodist Church. Once again the application was than 30% more costly due to the retrofit application.
