Any construction that takes place in an already-developed area runs the risk of causing issues for surrounding residents and businesses. The noise produced by power tools, diggers, generators, pneumatic devices, and other machinery can produce constant noise reading 90 dB or higher, often resulting in displeasure from neighbors, with subsequent noise complaints.
Echo Barrier is most frequently utilized in construction environments where a whole series of loud procedures are taking place all at one time. The barriers’ ability to be installed and adjusted with ease, while achieving noise reductions of 10-22 dB at the same time, makes them the ideal temporary noise mitigation tool for construction.
Take for example this site for an apartment development, a sensitive location where proximity to housing augmented the importance of noise mitigation for the contractor. Echo Barrier helped keep noise levels below the required council and consent requirements, while more than 100 piles were driven into solid rock on the site without a single formal noise complaint.
Watch the video below to see for yourself how the contractor applied Echo Barrier to achieve this:
