Customised noise abatement solution for New Farm State School
29 April 2016
Following noise complaints New Farm State School contacted the noise abatement leaders, ModularWalls, for a high performance, yet creative solution.
Originally built in 1901, New Farm State School is at the heart of the New Farm area and as such has a sense of responsibility to its surrounding community. The school was very swift to contact noise abatement leaders ModularWalls following complaints by neighbouring residents about the volume of noise being emitted from their premise.
It was important for the noise wall to accentuate the unique and historical features under pinning the school, whilst also being relatively maintenance free. Therefore it was a requirement that the noise wall did not require any painting.
With its ability to offer heights up to 9m and galvanised UB support columns, the ModularWalls GuardianWall was deemed most suitable for this noise abatement project. GuardianWall also has the benefit of offering a more aesthetically pleasing finish as when compared to other commercial noise walls. Measuring 35 metres long by 4.5 metres high using the AcoustiMax75 panels, the wall successfully shielded neighbouring residents from intrusive audible noise.
By cleverly incorporating a customised design that included multi pre-coloured metal skins on the wall surface facing the school meant no painting post-installation was required. This also permitted a unique and dynamic colour scheme that fitted in perfectly with the school and its surrounding area.
