Toning noise down with acoustic barriers

When you’re building in highly populated areas you have to reduce the noise to a minimum. People hate noise and immediately start to complain when they hear sounds from your construction site. Acoustic barriers help you reduce the noise and protect the hearing of your employees too.

An acoustic barrier reduces the noise from the building or construction site with 32,8 decibel. That’s a lot. Because of the noise reduction people outside the site can live their lives and don’t be disturbed by annoying sounds. Your employees can pick up the pace and finish their work in time. Because you work without causing noise people don’t call the police to shut the workplace down.

Event security; a matter for experts

Heras Mobile, a specialist in event security, has a clear mission: to give festival visitors the ultimate feeling of freedom. That’s a true art given the modern-day risks. Yves Spooren, expert in event security, explains how you can set up a problem-free event.

Events, whether these are sporting events or festivals, are becoming bigger, more creative, more impressive, and more compelling. Beautiful names, good line-ups, athletic heavyweights, exciting decors; more and more people are diving into the fray to make a lasting impression. Security, on the other hand, often remains in the background, and according to Yves, that is exactly what good security should do. The best and least obtrusive safety measures ensure that visitors enter a terrain feeling calm and then experience an event as it meant to be experienced… as relaxing entertainment.

The Fence Lifting Tool: the most convenient tool for fences

The paperclip. Velcro. The Post-It Note. All ‘accidental’, simple inventions about which everyone thought at the time of their introduction, why didn’t we think of this before… Think of those seemingly simple solutions that really make life easier. Heras Mobile has added a tool to this category: the Fence Lifting Tool. Justifiably the most convenient tool for temporary fences.

A safe sporting event with crowd control barriers

Every year, many sporting events take place in every country, outside the regular sports competitions. These include the big crowd-pullers like the Berlin or New York Marathon, European Championship, or World Cup Football, or even the Olympic Games. But smaller, national events are often also well attended. Organizing such a sporting event involves a lot of work. What should not be missing is the determination of the objective, target group, catering, and budget. Also bear in mind that crowd control barriers are needed to steer the sporting event in the right direction. There is a lot of work to be done to ensure the safety of both visitors and athletes. How do you steer this in the right direction?

Crowd control barriers corral large crowds at food truck festivals

Food truck festivals are a new kind of festival which have been experiencing overwhelming numbers of visitors in recent years. In short, food rocks! The trucks and their culinary delights, contemporary entertainment, musical entertainment, and entourage deserve the credits for this. But don’t forget the backstage roles as well, like the function of crowd control barriers. All of these festivals use crowd control barriers to ensure the safety of visitors. By hiring crowd control barriers, you make sure that all that food goes down smoothly.

Noise Control Barrier: How less noise will yield more for you!

Heras Mobile’s Noise Control Barrier not only reduces noise pollution for local residents. When you use this sound-proof fencing, you also meet the requirements for obtaining a permit, preventing absenteeism due to illness, or can create low-noise sections where necessary. For example at First Aid stations, backstage, VIP rooms, or in catering areas, or when noise reduction is required on the construction site when jackhammers or generators are used. The Noise Control Barrier is easily and quickly installed close to a sound source, reducing noise by approximately 17 dB.

Noise Control Barriers optimise the success of your event or festival

The locals are happy to wish the organisers of an event or festival good luck. But do you, as an organiser, grant them their relative peace and refrain from intentionally forcing your music or other sounds on them? The installation of sound barriers in noise-sensitive areas helps in this respect.

In this blog post, we would like to tell you how noise pollution can completely overshadow an event or festival for those living in the vicinity. But even more, we want to explain how these complaints, which can weigh heavily on the success of an event, can be prevented easily by using Noise Control Barrier fencing.
