The Boulevarde early learning centre
28 July 2016
The Boulevard Early Learning Centre at Mt Warren Park, located amidst a residential housing area, required an acoustic barrier to shield local residents from the playground noise, but needed a solution with rapid installation.
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 the surrounding busy roads. Another key requirement was fast installation so that the child care centre could become operational.
With changes in regulations, local councils are imposing strict acoustic guidelines on Child Care Centres across Australia. SlimWall acoustic fencing met all the criteria for this project. Incorporating the AcoustiMax50 panels, SlimWall has proven noise reduction qualities of 16+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 length and 1.5 metres high by 68 metres in length, were installed in just 3 days.
The proprietary AcoustiMax panel is our core modular wall solution, and the ideal choice for architects and developers seeking an effective noise barrier that’s aesthetically versatile as well as economical. Composed of an EPS core with an external layer of fibre-reinforced cementitious sheets, the AcoustiMax panel is a lightweight, impact resistant modular wall panel that possesses outstanding acoustic properties and a smooth designer finish.
