The Boulevard Early Learning Centre at Mt Warren Park, located amidst a residential housing area, required an acoustic barrier with a rapid installation to shield residents from playground noise.
In addition, the child care centre consisted of two buildings with separate outdoor play facilities and verandahs for each. Both of which were situated next to busy main roads. Hence, the solution also needed to ensure the children’s safety from adjacent busy roads. Another critical requirement was fast installation so the child care centre could become operational.
With regulation changes, local councils impose strict acoustic guidelines on Child Care Centres across Australia. SlimWall acoustic fencing meets all the criteria for this project. Incorporating AcoustiMax50 panels, SlimWall has proven noise reduction qualities of 20+dB. In addition, the simplicity of design allows for quick and easy construction. Two sections of SlimWall, measuring 1.5 metres high by 52 metres in length and 1.5 metres high by 68 metres in length, were installed in three days.
The proprietary AcoustiMax panel is a core ModularWalls solution and the ideal choice for architects and developers seeking an effective noise barrier and rapid installation. Composed of an EPS core with an external layer of fibre-reinforced cementitious sheets, the AcoustiMax panel is aesthetically versatile and economical. The lightweight, impact-resistant modular wall panel possesses outstanding acoustic properties and a smooth designer finish.
