One of the most common problems that the environment faces from the operation of a road project is the disturbance from the produced noise of traffic. The road noise, which is conceived as an unwanted sound that causes an unpleasant feeling, not only disturbs the people located close by the road, but also in extended time, diminishes the quality of life for both human and any kind of ecosystem alongside the road.

In order to deal with the problem, various tactics can be followed for decreasing noise, which can be produced either by drive by vehicles, the geometry and the road construction materials, either by even the configuration of the surrounding area. However one of the most common, and many times without an alternative solution, measures of treatment is the application alongside the road of noise barriers.

Noise barriers

What are noise barriers?

The noise barriers are placed as a barrier in distribution of unwanted noises in industrial urban or semi-urban areas, as well as and in applications for environmental soundproof.

The noise barriers are being used for the aesthetic and soundproofing protection from various sources of noise, that mainly are produced in:

  • Highways

  • Airports

  • Railroads

  • Quarries

  • Industries

  • Bar

  • And in general in all kinds of outdoor sources of noise.

Construction Material

The Noise barriers are consisted by panels that are produced by galvanized prefabricated steel sheets, solid and stencil with multiple “V” shape neuroses for stiffness.

They are filled with mixed noncombustible, aseptic fiber sound absorbing and soundproofing materials of high quality and are mounted upon proper frames.

Depending on the needs, the panels are possible to come unpainted or painted in RAL colors, plasticized, electrostatic colored, from aluminum sheets etc.

Frames are fabricated by commercial metallic profiles or by profile of special design.

Other types of panels are made from see-through Plexi-Glass, wooden aseptic elements, recycled materials, sturdy building materials, composited constructions etc.

Types of Panel

Heavy, Reinforced or light type Bilateral or Unilateral:

  • Soundproof type
  • Sound absorb type
  • Resonant type
  • Reflective type

With goal to optimize the acoustic result, we have the ability of drafting special acoustic studies for prediction and evaluation for the choice of the appropriate sound barrier for each application.

Depending on the application, the appropriate type it is chosen. The types are dependable upon the choice of materials and their proper layering.
