Sound barrier sheets, also known as noise reduction nets, are sheets made of specially-designed material such as polyvinyl chloride (PVC) that allows for good sound transmission loss. They are acoustic screens that are mounted around a fence or scaffolding units to help reduce the travel of sound.
Mitigating noise can be tricky. You cannot just reach for the source of the sound and turn it off, since noise is composed of various sounds coming from different places happening simultaneously.
However, this doesn’t mean that you just have to make do with the noise surrounding you. There are instances when you may not be in control of the source, but you have the capacity to handle the bigger picture in which noise takes place. In these situations, you may have to install a sound barrier sheet.
Why install a sound barrier sheet?
1. You are managing activities that generate outdoor noise.
If you happen to be managing activities that generate outdoor noise on almost a daily basis, then installing sound barrier sheets is definitely a must. Doing this helps you prevent causing issues to your neighbours, especially when your activities take place in an area where other establishments or structures are located.
Sound barriers are common in construction sites. If you are currently looking after a construction project in a suburban area, a sound barrier sheet helps a lot in reducing the noise from the construction activities and prevent it from reaching the homes nearby.
2. You have activities that can be disruptive during ungodly hours.
Another situation in which sound barrier sheets are useful are outdoor events. These include concerts, bazaars, and carnivals, among others. These events usually last for a few days, but they pump up the volume after the sun sets.
While they are usually situated in areas far from commercial complexes and residential areas, they can still be disturbing when heard. Installing sound barriers on the perimeter fences help reduce the impact of noise coming from these events, as their sound waves are prevented from traveling far from their sources.
3. Your projects may last for up to 5 years.
Some temporary outdoor activities may last for several months, and even up to a few years. These include highway and other types of construction projects, since such structures are not built overnight.
If you happen to be managing an outdoor project that lasts for a longer period of time (up to a few years), then surrounding the area with sound barrier sheets proves to be helpful in mitigating the sound.
People in these areas are exposed to the noise coming from your project for extended periods of time. The least you can do to make it easier for them to adjust with your project is by reducing the noise that affects their wellbeing using sound barrier sheets.
Sound barrier sheets last for up to five years, making them suitable for construction projects and other short-term outdoor activities.
4. You are able to improve the quality of sound within your premises.
Sound barrier sheets have reflective and absorptive properties, which help improve the quality of sound. This is important when you are handling outdoor events such as concerts; not only are the sounds prevented from reaching areas that may perceive them as distracting, but they are kept within the premises of the source. People in the concert on the other hand get to enjoy the acoustics better, from loudness to echo and reverb.
