ACRYLITE® Soundstop

ACRYLITE® Soundstop offers effective noise control and wind protection. The sheets are sound-reflecting, impact-resistant, highly transparent and may contain embedded polyamide threads for sliver retention. They are also available with bird-deterrent stripes.

Noise control barriers with transparent elements prevent the tunnel effect that is tiring for drivers, and provide a better view of the road, without casting shadows on the highway or neighboring areas. Noise control barriers made with ACRYLITE® Soundstop combine functionality and good looks with protection for nearby residents.

Our TL-4 system is approved by the US Federal Highway Authority (FHWA) for use on the National Highway system as an attachment to crash rated concrete barriers.

When noise control barriers and wind screens are installed on bridges, they should not constitute a danger to people underneath the bridge: any fragments caused by an accident must not fall down. Directives such as EN 1794 call for corresponding restraint systems. ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS CC meets these requirements for fragment retention. It does so by means of the polyamide threads that are embedded in the acrylic sheets. In the event of damage to the sheets, these threads retain any fragments and prevent them from falling.

ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS

ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS sheet offers a number of special features. The transparent sheet prevents drivers feeling they are driving through a “tunnel.”  ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS is classed in the highest airborne sound reduction category (B3) of EN 1793-2, EN 1793-6, EN 16272-3-2, and also meets all requirements of EN 1794-1,2,3.  Large noise barrier elements reduce the need for steel supporting structures therefore enhance the transparency of the noise barrier.  ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS is available in transparent colors.
