Designing and implementing acoustic fencing with noise reduction properties

 

Designing and implementing acoustic fencing with noise lowering properties.

The challenge:

To enhance the living experience at the select Orchard Gate development, Millwood Designer Homes was committed to minimising the impact of noise ingress from a nearby dual carriageway and sought a fencing solution which would combine effective noise reduction with perimeter protection while preserving the aesthetic charm of the development.


The 260m long run of fencing was to sit atop of a 1.5m high soil bund and called for a staggered approach to the works. The siting of the noise barrier presented an engineering challenge given the potential exposure to high winds.


Solution

The Jakoustic® Highway Reflective acoustic barrier selected reflects noise away from the development and employs a special profile that has been specifically developed to locate the timber boards in such a way that eliminates gaps through which sound can easily travel.  The design comprises a unique timber ‘tuning fork’ type post and solid 125 mm boards featuring an interlocking ‘vee’ coupled with a tongue and groove.  Galvanised steel “I” beam posts provide the barrier with the added stability and support to deal with high wind loading situations. The anti-climb and scale design with a totally flat attack face ensures security while Jacksons 25-year Jakcure timber treatment process provides the longevity and sustainability demanded from forward-thinking housing developments.
