An Introduction to Sound Proof Fencing
There is mounting evidence that noise pollution can have serious impacts on the health and wellbeing of those living close to excessive noise. In fact, the World Health Organisation suggest traffic noise alone is harmful to the health of almost every third person in Europe, with one in five regularly exposed to sound levels at night that could significantly damage their health.
As this issue of noise pollution becomes an increasingly prominent problem in densely populated modern environments, acoustic sound barriers are seen and been proven to be the most effective solution to reduce excessive and unwanted noise.
The systems are both flexible and bespoke, meaning they can be adapted to design requirements and supplied in varying heights and widths to suit the project requirements. Furthermore, they are suitable for uneven or sloping ground.
Most importantly, our acoustic fencing and barriers provide up to 32 Db attenuation. They are specially designed to satisfy stringent highway performance standards and are tested and compliant with BS EN 1794-1 and BS EN 1794-2.

Our experienced installation teams have worked throughout the UK on a wide range of acoustic projects.
A recently completed acoustic barrier in Southampton is believed to be one of the, if not the tallest fence in the UK. The 12m high timber fencing will not only reduce environmental noise but is the ideal solution when it comes to sustainability and security.
Recently, we have worked with schools to supply and install complimentary security and access solutions, a distribution centre for the UK’s largest builders’ merchants, and the BBC Roath Lock television studio in Cardiff that houses productions including Doctor Who and Casualty.
The project brief on this project was to create a visual and sound screening and involved the installation of 7m high acoustic screening, plus seven automated gates and pedestrian turnstiles.
“We are particularly pleased with the bespoke design and effectiveness of the acoustic screen at the studio. We have been able to film without external noise pollution affecting filming. Great job, and looks beautiful too!”
