Noise Reduction

Tested by the National Acoustic Laboratory of Australia, ModularWalls’ range of residential and commercial acoustic fences and noise barriers have been specifically engineered to provide superior noise reduction.

Using composite panel technology, ModularWalls is the ideal product for residential and commercial customers requiring more than just a visual barrier. Our acoustic fencing and noise wall solutions typically reduce the transmission of noise by up to 20+dB, or reducing noise up to 4 to 5 times.

The Human Perception of Sound Reduction is shown in the table below:
