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.

On-site and laboratory test: 6 dB more noise reduction

To guarantee claims about its application, we’ve tested the noise-reduction capacity of the Noise Control Barriers.

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 here.

The Noise Control Barrier 2.0 has also been subjected to extensive laboratory testing by the independent SRL. You can download this report here.

Reduce noise nuisance for the surrounding area and employees

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.
