Effectively reducing noise pollution from temporary construction sites

The Heras Noise Control Barriers are specially created for temporary construction sites. They’re a simple but effective solution for reducing noise pollution and creating a healthier workplace.

Less pollution, fewer complaints

Complaints from people living around your construction site can result in the suspension of your project by the local authorities. This can cause a massive delay, which doesn’t benefit your project or your reputation. 

Heras Noise Control Barriers help you reduce noise from the construction site by at least 17 percent. The noise is absorbed by our temporary acoustic fences, which actively help you reduce complaints and save costs.

Creating a healthier work environment

By law, employees are not allowed to be exposed to more than 80 decibels for more than eight hours. Proper protection must be used for noise over 85 decibels and employees should never be exposed to more than 87 decibels. This limit is often exceeded at construction sites.

Noise is one of the main health risks of construction workers. Firstly, it can severely damage the auditory system, and secondly, it can cause stress that negatively influences workers’ productivity. The Heras Noise Control Barriers absorb the noise created on the construction site, which helps you effectively create a safer work environment.

Soundproof walls used as hearing protection around construction sites

Soundproof walls used as hearing protection around construction sites

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.

Toning noise down with acoustic barriers

Toning noise down with acoustic barriers

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.
