Noise Barriers – Scaffold

Construction Noise Barriers for Scaffolding

If you need to reduce noise pollution from construction work dBarrier® has been engineered to provide the most effective temporary barrier against construction noise available with a noise reduction of up to 46.7dB (average noise reduction in excess of 21,2 dB).

Sound Absorbing Scaffold Cladding

Manufactured in Sweden, dBarrier is constructed from flame retardant PVC which sandwiches a 40mm thick slab of sound absorbent foam. All panels are flame retardant as standard and UV stabilised to provide a long lifespan in even the most challenging environments.

dBarrier is unique amongst temporary noise barriers because it has been designed especially for attaching to scaffolding. The FASTener® attachment, made of stainless steel, allows for fast and efficient fixing and removal and contains no loose components. This attachment also allows a security wire or a padlock to be fitted preventing unauthorised removal.

Key facts

  • Noise absorption: Average 21.2dB, Max 46.7dB (according to ISO 140-3)
  • Noise reduction: Class D according to ISO354 & ISO 11654
  • Weight: approx. 5.8Kg/m2
  • Wind tunnel tested: Withstands wind bursts of at least 137 km/h (38m/s, Beaufort 12).
  • Size: Available in 1m and 2m heights with panel lengths ranging from 0.73m to 3.07m.

Sound Absorbing Barrier for Temporary Fencing

dFence® is typically used for;

  • Rail Maintenance Projects – To reduce noise disruption to residents living adjacent to track works
  • Civil Contracting – Reducing the impact of street works and repairs
  • Events – Minimising nuisance noise from large concerts, festivals and events
  • Construction – Reducing the noise generated from construction sites

Like dBarrier, dFence is constructed from flame retardant PVC which sandwiches a 40mm thick slab of sound absorbent foam. All panels are flame retardant as standard and UV stabilised to provide a long lifespan in even the most challenging environments.

They key difference dBarrier and dFence is that whilst dBarrier has fittings specifically designed to allow it to be attached to scaffolding, dFence is supplied with reinforced eyelets around the perimeter of each panel. Although dFence is typically attached to temporary fence panels which are used to surround and screen the construction work, dFence can be attached to anything.

Key facts

  • Noise absorption: Average 21.2dB, Max 46.7dB (according to ISO 140-3)
  • Noise reduction: Class D according to ISO354 & ISO 11654
  • Weight: approx. 5.8Kg/m2
  • Size: Available as 2m high panel with panel lengths ranging from 1.4m to 2.2m.

 Advice from our shrink wrap installation team:

“Always riggers gloves to protect your hands when installing dBarrier. The fixings are strong and take some force to fully tighten.”
