Acoustic barrier with retaining wall for Maroubra Childcare

A childcare in Maroubra NSW needed an acoustic barrier with retaining wall capabilities to screen the playground from Anzac Parade, a busy main road that posed traffic noise and safety risks if the children were to breach the security perimeter.

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, as it limited any construction involving plant use.

SlimWall provided the perfect solution. Measuring 2.1m high and running approx. 100m, the AcoustiMax panels provided noise attenuation and security to the playground. Manual post-hole digging and the hand-mixing of concrete meant that installation was not impeded by the restricted site access, and the wall was completed in under a week.

Utilising customisations such as gates and TerraFirm panels for integrated retaining allowed a turnkey solution for the centre, saving them the time, cost and hassle associated with diversity of trades.

With lightweight composite panels and posts, SlimWall has 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.
