Full of heavy machinery, trucks, cranes, ships, and movement, the logistics industry is a hotspot for dangerous levels of environmental noise. This not only threatens the hearing and health of workers, but it also exposes companies to complaints from communities and legal action being taken by action local authorities. There are a number of ways noise can be managed and mitigated in logistics, reducing the likelihood of both health and legal problems arising, and operations being stifled.Read more →
Echo Barriers are implemented across a range of worksites, events, and other loud commercial environments in places all around the world, mitigating the impact of noise. These portable noise barriers are unique in their ability to both significantly reduce noise and its subsequent harmful effects and be highly manageable in mounting, rearranging, and uninstalling. They are also uniquely durable, withstanding exposure to weather, the outdoors, and tough work environments. Correct storage of Echo Barriers not only facilitates their re-deployment but also ensures their longevity, extending their effective usability well beyond the point of profitability and cost-effectiveness.
During a live event that will produce high noise levels, the noise management must be proactive and conducted by a professional consultant along with the production team, sound engineers, and the venue management.Read more →
Choosing the right material for a noise barrier is harder than it may seem. There are a number of considerations beyond "does it eliminate noise?" that may not be obvious. For example, some materials absorb sound while some simply reflect it, often worsening the issue. Some materials are easy to work with while some require careful craftsmanship to use effectively.Read more →

Echo Barrier's noise control system provides mitigation of noise around a site perimeter, preventing it from spilling into the public and wider community.
But what about from smaller, more isolated tasks? Maybe your site covers only a limited surface area, or your team's work stations are emitting noise across the entire jobsite, placing everyone at risk of prolonged noise exposure. In this case, erecting temporary fencing and deploying barriers around the entire perimeter, might be excessive.
