Sound insulation

Acoustic fencing is a specialist fencing system, commonly used as a noise barrier between residential developments and dual carriage ways or railway lines. Also this fencing system is aesthetically pleasing and looks the same on both sides, so is ideal for use in domestic settings where noise is an issue. 

As with all acoustic / noise barriers, they work on the principal of providing as large as an acoustic shadow as possible. So to get the  maximum noise reduction, barriers should therefore be as long, as high and as close to the noise source or receiver as possible.

We offer two types of acoustic fencing – reflective or absorbent and heights range from 2m to 6m.

Constructed using tongue and groove boards slotted into tuning fork timber posts. For heights above 2m up to 4m galvanised, steel spurs are added for reinforcement. This solid fencing system is designed with no gaps to prevent noise and sound from coming through.

The acoustic fencing options

  • The reflective system – does exactly as it stated, reflects noise. This system is available in ‘Light barrier’ or the heavier ‘Reflective’ the latter being certified to reduce noise up to 28dB.
  • The absorptive system – this has an extra layer of absorptive material covered with a protective membrane, fitted to one side of the boards which absorbs the sound waves. This is normally used where the noise levels are in excess of the capacity of a reflective system. Certified to reduce noise up to 23dB.
