Thanks to a stronger, leathery, fire-resistant canvas
A flexible canvas in a handy size: 1.2 x 2.0 metres. Simple assembly by just one employee.
The fire-resistant material makes the sound reducing canvas extremely suitable for placement around aggregates, for example.
More and more attention is being paid to noise nuisance from construction works and the disruption it can cause. Complaints from local residents and non-compliance with regulations and legislation can result in building projects coming to a standstill. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 helps you reduce noise nuisance from construction works and avoid complaints from local residents.
The new design of the Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 reduces the amount of noise that can be heard from your building works. The maximum noise reduction is as much as 32,8 dB in contrast to 26,1 dB for the first version. You can isolate sources of noise by strategically placing these barriers to ensure the sound does not echo and travel to surrounding areas. The product’s versatile application makes it extremely suitable for use in any construction project.
To guarantee claims about its application, we’ve tested the noise-reduction capacity of the first Noise Control Barrier and the new Noise Control Barrier 2.0. The test was performed on-site in a ‘square’ installation (fully closed), a 'C’ installation (closed on 3 sides) and a ‘linear’ installation. The comparison was made by taking two measurements: at the noise source, and on the other side of the barrier. The result: The Noise Control Barrier 2.0 can reduce an extra 6 dB of noise.
We’re proud to make the detailed results from this on-site test available.
Your responsibility as project manager goes further than just the progress of the project. Employees can experience direct and indirect effects of noise levels that are too high, and the hearing damage this can cause. We’re learning more and more about the indirect consequences. That’s why it’s so important to protect your employees against noise as much as possible. Noise is after all still one of the biggest health risks in construction.
Construction noise coming from aggregates, grinders, pumps and demolition works elsewhere on the building site can easily be limited with the correct installations. The Heras Noise Control Barrier 2.0 is a fire-resistant canvas in a handy size of 1.2 x 2.0 metres, which reduces noise by up to 32,8 dB. Isolating aggregates in a square installation, for example, limits noise nuisance not just for the surrounding area but also for your employees.

It increases the lifespan and makes the product maintenance free. The material is weather, UV and fire-proof. The barriers are flexible and can be used in various situations.
As specialists we can calculate wind resistance for specific sites:
When you’re building in highly populated areas you have to reduce the noise to a minimum. People hate noise and immediately start to complain when they hear sounds from your construction site. Acoustic barriers help you reduce the noise and protect the hearing of your employees too.
An acoustic barrier reduces the noise from the building or construction site with 20 decibel. That’s a lot. Because of the noise reduction people outside the site can live their lives and don’t be disturbed by annoying sounds. Your employees can pick up the pace and finish their work in time. Because you work without causing noise people don’t call the police to shut the workplace down.
Safety comes in many different forms. You use fences to deter thieves and camera systems to keep burglars at bay. To protect your hearing, you use a soundproof fabric. Since work in the Netherlands and Belgium is currently being carried out within the framework of reduced nuisance , the use of soundproof walls is becoming more common. Thanks to the fabric, the noise volume remains within the permitted noise limit, and excessive noise that leads to the construction site being shut down has become a thing of the past.
Older aggregates as well as concrete and stone grinders make a huge amount of noise. Newer versions are quieter, but not every company has one of these. To stay under the permitted noise limit, you can rent a soundproof fabric. The fabric reduces music and noise from machines. Municipalities regularly prescribe and promote this product.
A good fencing plan deals with optimum safety and security, regulating access, enclosing the terrain or road, emergency exit signs, and prevention of a noise nuisance. All of these situations require an event organiser to find a fencing solution. We recommend that you always start by drawing up a fencing plan so you can get a clear understanding of what type of fencing you need and in what quantity. In addition to gaining insight into what you need in terms of fencing, a fencing plan also helps you be cost-efficient. This blog how you arrive at the efficient usage of fencing.
