More and more attention is being paid to noise nuisance from construction works and the disruption it can cause. Complaints from local residents and non-compliance with regulations and legislation can result in building projects coming to a standstill. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 helps you reduce noise nuisance from construction works and avoid complaints from local residents.
The new design of the Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 reduces the amount of noise that can be heard from your building works. The maximum noise reduction is as much as 32,8 dB in contrast to 26,1 dB for the first version. You can isolate sources of noise by strategically placing these barriers to ensure the sound does not travel to surrounding areas. The product’s versatile application makes it extremely suitable for use in any construction project.
To guarantee claims about its application, we’ve tested the noise-reduction capacity of the first Noise Control Barrier and the new Noise Control Barrier 2.0. The test was performed on-site in a ‘square’ installation (fully closed), a 'C’ installation (closed on 3 sides) and a ‘linear’ installation. The comparison was made by taking two measurements: at the noise source, and on the other side of the barrier. The result: The Noise Control Barrier 2.0 can reduce an extra 6 dB of noise.
We’re proud to make the detailed results from this on-site test available.
Your responsibility as project manager goes further than just the progress of the project. Employees can experience direct and indirect effects of noise levels that are too high, and the hearing damage this can cause. We’re learning more and more about the indirect consequences. That’s why it’s so important to protect your employees against noise as much as possible. Noise is after all still one of the biggest health risks in construction.
Construction noise coming from aggregates, grinders, pumps and demolition works elsewhere on the building site can easily be limited with the correct installations. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 is a fire-resistant canvas in a handy size of 1.2 x 2.0 metres, which reduces noise by up to 32,8 dB. Isolating aggregates in a square installation, for example, limits noise nuisance not just for the surrounding area but also for your employees.

Noise can be a nuisance. And noise pollution can seriously disrupt a building project. Heras Mobile Fencing has a temporary noise barrier solution that prevents complaints from local residents and minimizes the risk that the process becomes delayed due to local authorities intervening. A solution that keeps sound waves confined to the building site, and that is as simple as it is effective. The Heras Noise Control Barrier is a high-tech panel, featuring special sound-absorbing fibres. It absorbs building noise and prevents sound from being reflected. The panel is robust, compact and light weight. It only takes one fitter to install the screens very quickly. The temporary sound barriers can also be applied to scaffolding. The Noise Control Barrier, developed by Heras Mobile in conjunction with a partner that specializes in noise reduction, is already used successfully in several European markets.

By controlling noise on your construction site, you respond to the wishes of all those involved. You maximise living enjoyment for local residents and minimise hearing damage to employees on the construction site. Read here about how you can easily reduce noise by 17 dB(A)* and thus prevent direct noise pollution.Read more
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. In this blog article about noise control and noise control barriers, Heras Mobile Fencing explains how and when to reduce noise.
Heras Mobile’s Noise Control Barrier not only reduces noise pollution for local residents. When you use this sound-proof fencing, you also meet the requirements for obtaining a permit, preventing absenteeism due to illness, or can create low-noise sections where necessary. For example at First Aid stations, backstage, VIP rooms, or in catering areas, or when noise reduction is required on the construction site when jackhammers or generators are used. The Noise Control Barrier is easily and quickly installed close to a sound source, reducing noise by approximately 17 dB.
