When Brisbane City Council received noise complaints from residents adjacent to the Indooroopilly Riverwalk, it was determined that a sound absorbing noise wall was the solution. AcoustiSorb noise wall offers superior noise absorption with a modern aesthetic, which met all Brisbane City Council requirements.

The Indooroopilly Riverwalk proves popular with pedestrians and cyclists  

The Indooroopilly Riverwalk was a significant project undertaken by the Brisbane City Council. The Riverwalk is a five-metre wide, 790 metre long, two-way pedestrian and cyclist track along the Brisbane River. The walkway provides locals with a fast and safe way to reach the Indooroopilly Rail Station and other additional connections.

Sound absorbing noise wall was the perfect solution

To combat the increasing noise, residents contacted Brisbane City Council for a solution. Consequently, Brisbane City Council liaised and contracted QLD Commercial Walls to deliver a sound absorbing noise wall. The primary objective was to significantly reduce noise while offering a modern aesthetic, therefore the AcoutiSorb noise wall was the perfect solution.

AcoustiSorb® noise wall for superior performance

Overall, the AcoustiSorb noise wall met all Brisbane City Council requirements. Unlike traditional acoustic barriers that reflect sound, AcoustiSorb absorbs sound waves within its eco-friendly core. As a result, AcoustiSorb achieves an NRC rating of >0.9, meaning 90%+ of the sound is being absorbed and not reflected away. In addition, to meet the aesthetic requirements, the AcoustiSorb panels were supplied pre-finished in the colour, Monument to blend with the surrounding residential environment.
