Effectively increasing event safety and reducing risks at World Class Events

Proper use of noise control barriers

The season of street parties, open-air festivals, and parties is the best time of year for many. Long, lingering nights with friends, a delicious drink in hand and live music are simply part of summertime. Of course, noise control should not be missing either, so that there are no complaints from local residents. Besides open-air festivals, construction sites are just as delicate a situation in terms of noise, as they often attract unwanted attention from local residents.

Construction fence in Berlin: This is how you secure your construction fence in the capital of Germany

Berlin - capital, federal state, and most populous city in Germany. Anyone who wants to drive through the city usually gets stuck in traffic. Long waiting times and nerves on edge are not uncommon here. One solution to the congestion problem is to switch to public transport or cycling. Yet, as soon as one problem is solved, a new one appears: Where do you park your bicycle in the crowded capital? To the annoyance of contractors, wheels are often tied to construction fences in Berlin. Naturally, this also causes displeasure and problems in other cities such as Münster, Hanover, Bremen, or Erlangen. This is especially the case if the mobile construction fence is to be relocated.
