Reducing neighbourhood noise

With such tight boundaries, noise reduction fencing creates a protected living oasis and ensures acoustic privacy from neighbours. As ModularWalls reach up to 3m* high, you can easily create an acoustic dividing fence and visual screen with an average 20-25dB noise reduction. In layperson’s terms, that’s a fourfold reduction in audible noise.

Acoustic fences offer a modern, render-like aesthetic with various finishing options. As a result, you can design a fence that enhances the design and architectural aesthetic, further adding value to your property. Plus, the design possibilities are endless with the option to incorporate lighting, integrated retaining, security systems or surround sound. Not to mention studies have shown that a well-designed outdoor area can indeed boost property value.

Reducing environmental noise

Surrounding noise pollution is also a concerning factor when deciding where to live. For instance, prospective buyers may want easy access to freeways and main roads but aren’t willing to tolerate traffic noise.

Therefore Acoustic fencing is a fantastic solution. It acts as a reflective noise barrier, deflecting the noise emitted from motor vehicles away from the property. Investing in acoustically-rated fencing around your property will make your home more desirable in any property market.

Residential dwellings continue to collide with commercial and industrial spaces. As a result, noise pollution is fast becoming a major environmental concern for homeowners. In addition, acoustic fencing can help reduce health impacts attributed to extended noise exposure, such as sleep disturbance, hearing impairment, hypertension, and stress.

Preserving acoustic privacy

By investing in acoustic fencing, you are investing in acoustic privacy; and thus, to prospective buyers, investing in their future. Which ultimately gives you the unique competitive edge in a market flooded with potential homes.
