Timber noise barrier

Jakoustic® Absorptive | Acoustic Fencing

Jakoustic® Absorptive takes the proven Jakoustic® Reflective design of heavy section planed timber boards with deep interlocking ‘v’ tongue and groove joint, coupled to tuning fork posts and adds an absorptive layer of a mineral Rockwool fibre and protective membrane to one side of the barrier.

The Jakoustic® Absorptive barrier is designed specifically to keep noise within a contained space and is typically used around continuous power supply generators, air conditioner compressors, waste compactors and goods loading areas.
