Prevent delay, reduce noise nuisance

More and more attention is being paid to noise pollution from construction works and the disruption it can cause. Complaints from local residents and non-compliance with regulations and legislation can result in building projects coming to a standstill. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 is reducing sound nuisance from construction works and avoids complaints from local residents.

The new design of the Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 reduces the amount of noise that can be heard from your building works. The maximum noise reduction is as much as 32,8 dB in contrast to 26,1 dB for the first version. You can isolate sources of noise by strategically placing these barriers to ensure the sound does not travel to surrounding areas. The product’s versatile application makes it extremely suitable for use in any construction project.

On-site test

To guarantee claims about its application, we’ve tested the sound-reduction capacity of the first Noise Control Barrier and the new Noise Control Barrier 2.0. The test was performed on-site in a ‘square’ installation (fully closed), a 'C’ installation (closed on 3 sides) and a ‘linear’ installation. The comparison was made by taking two measurements: at the noise source, and on the other side of the barrier. The result: The Noise Control Barrier 2.0 can reduce an extra 6 dB of noise.

We’re proud to make the detailed results from this on-site test available.

Reduce noise nuisance for the surrounding area and employees

Your responsibility as project manager goes further than just the progress of the project. Employees can experience direct and indirect effects of noise levels that are too high, and the hearing damage this can cause. We’re learning more and more about the indirect consequences. That’s why it’s so important to protect your employees against noise as much as possible. Noise is after all still one of the biggest health risks in construction. 

Construction noise coming from aggregates, grinders, pumps and demolition works elsewhere on the building site can easily be limited with the correct installations. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 is a fire-resistant canvas in a handy size of 1.2 x 2.0 meters, which reduces noise by up to 32,8 dB.  Isolating aggregates in a square installation, for example, limits noise nuisance not just for the surrounding area but also for your employees.

Noise barrier for limiting noise nuisance from construction works. variants & specifications

Heras Noise Control Barrier

Noise can be a nuisance. And noise pollution can seriously disrupt a building project. Heras Mobile Fencing has a temporary noise barrier solution that prevents complaints from local residents and minimizes the risk that the process becomes delayed due to local authorities intervening. A solution that keeps sound waves confined to the building site, and that is as simple as it is effective. The Heras Noise Control Barrier is a high-tech panel, featuring special sound-absorbing fibres. It absorbs building noise and prevents sound from being reflected. The panel is robust, compact and light weight. It only takes one fitter to install the screens very quickly. The temporary sound barriers can also be applied to scaffolding. The Noise Control Barrier, developed by Heras Mobile in conjunction with a partner that specializes in noise reduction, is already used successfully in several European markets.
