Increasing demand for acoustic barriers
Acoustic barriers are used to minimize noise pollution from one place to another. Regulations to minimise the environmental impact of the noise and visual pollution created by infrastructure and industrial works in residential areas has generated a growing demand for acoustic barriers and visual screening. Such barriers should have;
- Minimal impact on the urban landscape
- Even high structures must have a small “footprint”
Maccaferri solutions combine both these attributes, with ease of construction and cost-effectiveness.
Many acoustic bunds feature our soil reinforcement technology using our MacGrid and ParaGrid geogrids and gabions. Combining solutions enables us to successfully accommodate client demands of aesthetics, space and value. Our unique ParaDrain geogrids often also enable to reuse of poor quality fills as structural backfill particularly within acoustic bunds; further reducing environmental impact and carbon footprint.
