  • To ensure maximum sound reduction, please ensure sound waves don’t bounce off other hard surfaces and back into your yard.
  • Overall, our acoustic fence panels can be more expensive than timber or metal fences.
  • For noise from pool pumps or air-conditioner units, you will need a sound-absorbing solution such as AcoustiSorb to reduce these noise issues effectively.
