Noise control is gaining importance

Transportation of goods and passengers, both by road and by rail, is an indispensable part of economic progress. But the rising volume of traffic also has negative impacts, such as higher noise levels. Sound reduction measures include the installation of noise control barriers and embankments. But embankments that are integrated into the landscape and usually planted, take up a lot of space. That is why noise control barriers are the preferred structures in many metropolitan areas. Owing to the increasing proximity of buildings to traffic routes, these barriers not only have to be functional, but also look attractive.

Noise control barriers with transparent elements prevent the tunnel effect that is tiring for drivers, and provide a better view of the road, without casting shadows on the highway or neighboring plots. Noise control barriers made with PLEXIGLAS® Soundstop combine functionality and good looks with protection for nearby residents.
