Suppress highway noise with an earth-friendly barrier wall
Erect Sound Barrier System to reduce noise and light pollution along highways, mass-transit lines, crowded residential roads or scenic areas where vehicle noise is a problem. Made with scrap rubber from discarded tires. The rubber serves as filler for tongue and groove boards, which consist of fiberglass-reinforced polymer composite. Every mile of Sound Barrier constructed recycles more than 21,000 scrap tires to save landfill space and protect the environment. Modular, lightweight design (only 7.5 lbs. per sq. ft.) requires no crane or other heavy lifting equipment to install. According to the company, Sound Barrier delivers more noise reduction per sq. ft. and installs four times faster than sound walls made of concrete, wood or metal. Heavy-duty construction resists fire, harsh weather and corrosive elements. Comes in heights up to 28 ft. If barrier sections become damaged by an errant vehicle, two workers with step ladders and manual tools can make repairs within minutes. Available in a wide range of colors. Customer also can select more than one color to create walls with striped designs. Carsonite Composites, Early Branch, S.C.
