Noise barriers are the perfect solution to frustrating noise problem due to traffic, engines, compressors, motors, equipment and other sources. The primary benefits of a noise barrier are the acoustical qualities and traits which directly relate to the barrier's ability to absorb and eliminate noise once installation is complete.
Noise Barrier Wall Applications
Absorptive vs Reflective
Absorptive sound barriers diffuse sound inside its panels with little to no noise reflected off the barrier. Reflective walls merely bounce the sound back or deflect it inadequately.
“All else being equal, it’s better to use absorption than not. And use of reflective materials might be worse than using nothing at all in some situations.” K. Polcak (MD SHA) & R.J. Peppin (Scantek, Inc.)
