Acoustic fencing has increased in popularity in recent years. As towns and villages throughout the UK become more densely populated, noise levels rise. For some people, this means you are not able to enjoy the peace and quiet you’d hoped your garden sanctuary would bring.
Whilst acoustic fencing is highly effective at minimising noise pollution levels, there is more to it than simply installing noise barriers. The right solution for you must take into account the type of noise that you want to absorb, where it’s coming from and the dimensions that are needed to provide an effective solution.
The knowledgable team at Creative Fencing have more than 20 years of experience in installing noise barriers in residential homes, schools, sports centres and business in and around Kent. We have installed hundreds of acoustic fences and can help to ensure you install the right acoustic fencing solution for your needs.
Acoustic fencing is only effective at minimising noise pollution if the barriers you install have the right height, mass and density. Noise barriers deflect sound vibrations that resonate in the air, so you need to know the origins in order to muffle the sound.
It’s worth pointing out that acoustic fencing does not create a soundless cocoon for your garden. The aim is to create a “Shadow Zone” which effectively reduces noise or cancels it out altogether. Your expectation should be to create the most peaceful environment possible for the location you are in.
For example, homeowners that live close to a motorway can effectively drown out the sound of rushing traffic. However, you won’t be able to prevent the sound of children playing with the same fencing solution. You will need a higher fence to prevent noise from coming over the top.
You should also bear in mind that residential properties may be subject to height restrictions. Our knowledgeable experts will be able to advise you whether you will need planning permission from the council to erect an acoustic fence.
Whilst acoustic fencing is typically viewed as a measure for preventing sound from getting in, there are some customers that should consider reducing the amount of noise from escaping your premises.
Noise pollution laws in the UK define the maximum amount of “noise nuisance” that is permitted to be discharged from private homes and business premises. For example, school fields and sports centres that are in the proximity of built-up residential areas are legally bound to control noise levels. Acoustic fencing can reduce sound levels by 30 decibels.
For businesses with a large perimeter, installing acoustic barriers can be expensive. The type of noise barriers you install not only have to be effective at reducing noise but should also be manufactured from cost-effective materials that last a long time.
Our knowledgeable experts will be able to explain the best type of materials to use for your business needs and your budget. Acoustic fencing is available in a wide range of aesthetics and prices. Although we don’t supply acoustic fencing, our dedicated customer service team will be happy to offer advice and perform a site inspection before you invest in noise barriers.
