A childcare in Maroubra, NSW, needed an acoustic barrier with retaining wall capabilities to screen the playground from a busy main road. The barrier wall’s purpose was twofold. Firstly, to reduce traffic noise and secondly, to ensure the safety of the children.

The wall needed to be quickly installed, aesthetically pleasing and provide a secure boundary that kept the children safe and didn’t permit climbing. Restricted site access posed a challenge, limiting any construction involving plant use.

For these reasons, SlimWall provided the perfect solution. The barrier wall measures 2.1m high and runs approx 100m, with the AcoustiMax panels providing noise attenuation and security to the playground. Also, manual post-hole digging and hand-mixing concrete meant restricted site access did not impede installation. As a result, the wall was completed in under a week.

With lightweight composite posts and panels, SlimWall offers a sleek and modern design that can match existing architecture. As Australia’s fastest growing fencing product, SlimWall can transform any space into an oasis.
