ACRYLITE® Soundstop SilentView

Product

ACRYLITE® Soundstop SilentView is a transparent noise absorbing system consisting of an aluminum frame and a 30º angled transparent ACRYLITE® Soundstop sheet. This innovative design allows incoming noise to be reflected upward towards the horizontal noise absorbing part of the element. ACRYLITE® Soundstop SilentView is suitable for highways, high speed railways, and any other noise barrier installation.

This newly developed system perfectly combines the desired transparency with the absorbing properties of a noise protection element. ACRYLITE® Soundstop SilentView is the only element worldwide which also complies with the new acoustic standards outlined in EN 1793-5 and EN 1793-6 “Road Traffic Noise reducing devices – test method for determining the acoustic performance using in situ values of sound reflection (1793-5) and airborne sound insulation (1793-6) under direct sound field conditions.”

While focused on new Noise Barrier installations, ACRYLITE® Soundstop SilentView is ideal for replacing old, unsightly, or defective elements quite easily. The existing infrastructure, including posts, can be re-used in various dimensions and distances so that no additional construction costs are incurred.
