As the name suggests, sound absorbers work by absorbing any sound waves that are projected onto them. This is achieved by converting some of the sound wave energy into very small amounts of heat energy. The rest of the sound is either reflected or passed through.
All materials perform this function to some degree, but only specialised sound absorbers have high enough levels of absorption to make a noticeable difference to sound levels. Their biggest advantage lies in the reduction of reflected noise, minimising echoes.
Sound barriers, commonly referred to as noise barriers, work by blocking the direct path of sound waves, forcing them to travel over or around the barrier. As they pass over the barrier, sound waves will “bend back” towards the receiver. That’s why the placement of the barrier is crucial to providing maximum noise reduction.
Noise barriers are an excellent solution for reducing noise from roads, railways and industrial sources. Building an acoustic fence as close to the source of the sound as possible, generally along a property boundary, is an ideal position. However, for long boundaries, this can become quite costly. A simple alternative is to use an Acoustic Fence Wrap which can be added to existing fencing to provide an effective, less expensive noise barrier.
