Reducing noise pollution at Faversham Linen Services

Project Overview

Faversham Linen Services

Faversham, Kent

Date Complete



Faversham Linen Services is a family owned premium laundry service founded in 1897. It is one of the leading commercial laundry service providers in the South East and recently moved into a 28,000ft2 state of the art factory located in the heart of Faversham.

The factory is responsible for washing over 14 million pieces of linen and garments every year and the company takes great care to minimise its impact on the surrounding environment.

With the disruption caused by industrial sized machines working long hours and heavy goods vehicles going to and from the site throughout the day, Faversham Linen Services chose to install 76m of Jakoustic® Reflective Acoustic Barrier to help minimise the impact of their operations on local residents and wildlife whilst also complementing the aesthetics of the area and complying with their environmental policies.


Following a noise survey and discussions with Jacksons specialist acoustic team, a reflective barrier was recommended as the most effective solution for the site.

76m of 4m high Jakoustic® Reflective fencing was installed on the northern and southern side of the perimeter, running alongside the staff car park and the loading bays to reduce noise coming from the site for nearby residents and a local park.

Additionally, the design and height of the timber noise barrier reduced light pollution from the site and ensured the perimeter fitted in with the aesthetics of adjoining properties so that local residents can continue to enjoy their surroundings.

At the rear of the property a single leaf 1.2m wide gate was installed on site to allow access to the grounds beyond the fence.

Key Jakoustic® Reflective features include:

  • 34mm thick “V” boards which help to reduce noise by up to 28dB*   
  • An attractive timber structure with anti climb design and providing high privacy
  • Jacksons Fencing’s 25 year Jakcure® timber guarantee.
