Noisy Restaurants Quietened by Acoustic Decorative Finish.
A visually beautiful restaurant may not be a pleasurable place to spend time due to poor restaurant acoustics. Hard flat surfaces such as timber floors and plastered walls reflect sound thereby increasing and amplifying noise levels within the space. Poor restaurant acoustics distort and increase noise levels; for many this can spoil the dining experience.
Black Tiles Restaurant
Following a refurbishment using fashionable hard materials, Black Tiles too suffered from poor restaurant acoustics. Owner Tim Yoe contacted Oscar Acoustics and following a free acoustic appraisal 12mm of SonaSpray trowelled fcx was chosen as the acoustic decorative wall and ceiling finish.
“Simply Awesome! It’s created a totally different dining environment. Speech and music are clear and all background clutter noise has gone. The restaurant feels comfortable and somehow warmer.”
Comments from Black Tiles Restaurant owner Tim Yoe.

When designing Nopi, the owner Noam Bar had a clear vision: plaster smooth ceilings, painted brick and tiled walls, hard table tops and marble floors; poor restaurant acoustics were a certainly.
Whilst wanting Nopi customers to be able to have relaxed, effortless conversations, he also wanted the restaurant acoustics to retain an atmospheric buzz. To achieve this, Oscar Acoustics was able to reduce the depth of the standard finish by half.
Items in favour of Oscar Elite over other systems were:
• installed by fully trained Oscar operatives
• speed and ease of installation
• ease of local repairs
• application from mobile towers & not a birdcage scaffold
• smooth finish
The result was exactly as stated in the brief. Clear and effortless speech whist retaining an atmospheric buzz.
The owner has since expressed his delight with the restaurant acoustics and the appearance.
Tapanco Restaurant, Wimbledon
SonaSpray fcx was applied to walls of the Wimbledon restaurant Tapanco, the colour finished with beige emulsion paint for an attractive decorative finish and a comfortable acoustic environment. For improved restaurant acoustics SonaSpray fcx is applied by experienced Oscar Acoustics installers, trained by International Cellulose Corporation, using authorised equipment, fibres and adhesive. SonaSpray acoustic decorative finish can be used for any indoor space with a noise problem needing a sound absorber.
Oscar Acoustics has the solution to poor restaurant building acoustics.
