The number of complaints about noise nuisance from building projects is increasing and having a greater impact. Anyone who makes a lot of noise can be sure to receive objections from local residents, which can bring your project to a standstill.
The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 is a flexible, user-friendly, affordable solution for reducing noise nuisance from construction works.
Reduce noise nuisance from machines, tools, other equipment and demolition work. And focus on running your construction project.
Reduce noise pollution by up to 32,8 dB.
The new single-layer material does not absorb any water and retains hardly any dirt.
Thanks to a stronger, leathery, fire-resistant canvas.
A flexible canvas in a handy size: 1.2 x 2.0 m. Simple assembly by just one employee.
The fire-resistant material makes the sound reducing canvas extremely suitable for placement around aggregates, for example.
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.
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.
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.

Simple solution to reduce the effect of noise.
Up to 20 dB less noise. The guidelines of the World Health Organisation (WHO) and CE legislation demonstrate the importance of hearing protection. The Heras acoustic barrier/Acoustic Barrier has proven acoustic qualities. This solution reduces nuisance caused by noise (by up to 20 dB) and creates a healthier working environment. Heras acoustic barriers have been specially developed for construction sites. It is a simple but effective solution to reduce nuisance and create a healthier workplace. The high-tech panel is made with special sound-absorbing fibres. It absorbs construction noise and prevents reflection. The screen is robust, compact and lightweight. A technician can fix the screens in an instant. The temporary noise barriers can also be used on scaffolding constructions.
Maximum noise reduction resulting in less construction noise.
The Heras acoustic barrier 2.0 reduces noise by up to 32.8 dB. The NCB 2.0 has a longer lifespan, is easy to install, and is maintenance-free. Three banners are required for a complete temporary fence. The narrower size makes hanging the sound screens very easy. The size volume of these barriers is low for a very high sound volume reduction, which means minimal storage capacity is required. The acoustic barrier 2.0 consists simply of a special, patented durable banner that is 2 mm thick. This increases the lifespan and makes the product maintenance-free. The material is resistant to weather, UV and fire.
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.
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.
