Acoustic barriers are perfect for mitigating noise at major construction sites and on demolition projects. They are also an effective solution for large music events and festivals. However, in some cases, one row of the 12-foot sound-reducing panels is not tall enough to produce the desired results. That’s why Echo Barriers are designed to be easily installed vertically in an overlapping system that can create a wall or curtain of barriers, assuming no external loads, up to 20 times the height of one panel. The structure must be stable enough to support the extra wind and weight loads, but the vertical installation allows contractors to construct tall acoustic barrier curtains that can provide flexibility for noise control.
Event organizers can mitigate the noise levels by building large walls of sophisticated acoustic noise-reducing barriers that can be as high as needed as long as the barriers are attached to the support structure as well as each other and all loading considerations are accounted for. These curtains of advanced technology panels interlinked to one another can provide up to 26db reduction in the field or more in controlled scenarios, at certain frequencies the barriers can absorb more than 90% of excess noise.Read more →
