Acoustic absorption success for bakery

ModularWalls designed a custom dual-panel sound absorption solution following the removal of a redundant warehouse located north of The Goodman Fielder Bakery warehouse site, neighbouring residential property owners were exposed to endless noise.

This is an area where reject and return bread is disposed of via skip-bins; the constant drone and vibration from forklifts, dump trucks, skip bin removal and replacement activity in and around the bakeries bread return area was overwhelming for residents. Goodman Fielder, being an environmentally conscious asset owner, wanted to act quickly in resolving the multitude of neighbour complaints. They engaged an acoustic engineer who in-turn contacted ModularWalls for a noise absorption solution.

AcosutiSorb Sound Barrier

The end result was twofold. A 30m long x 5.1 High GuardianWall was constructed at the coalface of the noise source. Proprietary AcoustiMax75 panels provided outstanding noise abatement, with clear Plexiglas windows incorporated within the wall panel for operations safety.

A secondary wall was constructed along the grain silo loading area and adjacent to the main bakery building. The close proximity between the two structures meant a sound absorbing solution was required. This wall was a 40 metre long x 4.1 metre high BarrierWall incorporating our proprietary composite sound absorbing panel — AcoustiSorb75. These panels absorb over 90% of the airborne sound meaning there is no reverberation whilst maintaining a high transmission loss.
