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.

  • available with black or clear filaments
  • up to a 94% reduction of bird collisions versus clear glass panels
  • highly transparent grade of cast acrylic with embedded polyamide filaments

Features & benefits

ACRYLITE® Soundstop GS CC is approved for use on bridges around the globe, without additional metal netting. This makes this product much more attractive than the systems with add-on or supplemental fragment retention systems. All of this gives architects greater freedom of design and allows bridges to fit into the landscape more harmoniously. Finally, the material is extremely weather-resistant and withstands the extreme wind pressures that frequently prevail on high bridges.
