Whether a construction project affects shoppers, commuters, traffic or local residents, a local council has a duty of care to make sure the environment remains peaceful.
A noisy project in a city or town centre can lead to several damaging factors for the local government and contractor involved. These include:
> Noise complaints which can delay the work or put it on hold
> Negative impact on footfall in local businesses
> Restricted operating times
> Higher costs due to more days’ wages being paid thanks to restricted operating times
> Health implications of noise on heart health and stress levels.
In some locations, restrictions on a contractor can be set by the local authority. This makes finding noise mitigating solutions a must in order to reduce the disruption caused by the project. This is where Noise Defender comes in.
Our range of noise defence products can offer a practical solution for both the contractor and the local government. Erecting barriers around the worksite can significantly reduce the noise level for the local community, giving local authorities a safe, cost effective and aesthetically pleasing method for eradicating noise pollution and getting the job done.
Reduce the noise level
Here at Noise Defender, we employ leading engineers dedicated to researching and developing our products. This ensures we remain ahead of the curve when it comes to acoustic barrier technology.
We are proud to provide only accurate and realistic advice and information regarding the benefits of sound absorbing barriers. We never sell for the sake of selling — instead we take your needs on board and find the perfect solution. Be aware that certain suppliers often provide information based on ‘ideal lab’ conditions rather than ‘real life’ conditions.
What makes a good performance?
In order to achieve the maximum acoustic performance every time, we take these three key factors into account with every client:
The barrier must be placed as close to the source of the noise as possible in order to maximise the ‘acoustic shadow
The mass of the impermeable material used in the barrier determines the noise attenuation, but only if the barrier is infinitely large. Because this isn’t very practical, there is an optimum weight and size we must determine and then use in order to achieve optimum noise reduction and handling ability
A high quality barrier must incorporate materials which can absorb the noise rather than reflect it. The material is also important for safe handling and water resistance, so we always consider it carefully and use the best
