UKCA marked timber noise barrier
Jakoustic® Commercial and Highway | Acoustic Fencing
Our Jakoustic® system has been designed for commercial and highway applications, providing the same level of noise protection as the original Jakoustic® barrier and available in both reflective and absorptive variants.
Jakoustic® ‘V’ boards are affixed to galvanised steel I-beam posts for additional strength and rigidity, meeting not only the stringent standards BS EN 1794-1 and 2, but also ideally suited for application in exposed locations subject to high wind loading. The system can also be offered with capping and counter rails to further enhance its appearance.
Jacksons Fencing is the first UK manufacturer of timber acoustic barriers that can UKCA mark both its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highway Reflective system and its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highway Absorptive system as compliant with the requirements of BS EN 14388:2005 relating to traffic noise reducing devices.
Jakoustic® Commercial and Highway can be supplied and installed in compliance with Highways Sector Scheme 2C for the supply, installation and repair of environmental barriers for infrastructure works and Scheme 4 for preservative treatment of timber.

Jakoustic COmmercial and Highway Specification
Jakoustic® Commercial and Highway acoustic barriers are available in heights up to 12m and are constructed on steel I beam posts. Acoustic barriers can be reflective or absorptive to suit the application. Galvanised steel I-beams have nailing battens to be bolted to the front of the posts. 4.8m long interlocking ‘V’ boards are then nailed and also fixed with heavy duty screws through the timber boards into the nailing battens. Cover boards are required on every steel posted installation.
To really benefit from a noise reducing solution, any gates that are required should match the specification of the acoustic barrier. We manufacture swing and sliding gates with manual and automated operating options to match this product.Acoustic Gates
Base plated galvanised steel I-beam posts to bolt down to concrete base foundations.
