Using our expertise in manufacturing sound-reducing, timber noise barriers for motorways, we have applied the same concepts to develop Soundshield™ acoustic fencing - the affordable and effective domestic acoustic fence panel system. Whether you want to reduce intrusive traffic noise or minimise the impact of noisy neighbours, Soundshield™ reduces noise pollution levels through sound reflection, protecting your garden from the noise source.
Our Soundshield™ design combines sound damping technology within the acoustic fencing's core with a robust surface. This results in a large percentage of the sound source being reflected away. The sound source (unwanted noise) produces sound waves or energy that is blocked by the Soundshield™ acoustic fencing. Behind the Soundshield™ barrier a noise shadow area is created and the direct sound travels above. Remaining sound that is heard is known as indirect or diffracted sound. It is this reduced sound that provides more comfortable sound levels for your garden.
Soundshield™ acoustic fencing has been independently tested in a laboratory to BSEN1793- 2 (2012), achieving a noise reduction of up to 37dB (DLr) and an average reduction of 22 dB (DLr). This performance classes the system as a category B2-rated noise barrier in accordance with Highways Agency specifications for motorways.
