ACRYLITE® Soundstop Ready Fit Panels Technical Information

Fully Fabricated Frame-and-Panel Assemblies, Adaptable to any Ground-Mounted Noise Barrier System

Product

ACRYLITE® Soundstop Ready Fit Panels are fully fabricated frame-and-panel assemblies, adaptable to any ground-mounted noise barrier system. They are used to mitigate noise along roadways, rail lines, walkways, and for industrial applications. Ready Fit Panels are easily installed with steel or concrete posts and combine seamlessly with precast concrete, absorptive, or other panel types to form an attractive and effective noise barrier. Individual panels are available in virtually any size up to 20’ wide x 8’ high panels. Aluminum or Steel Ready Fit Frames may be stacked to achieve greater heights. The example below and to the right shows two Ready Fit Panels each 20’ wide x 8’ high stacked atop a 4’ concrete base panel for a total wall height of 20’.
