Echo Barrier

World-leading temporary acoustic barriers

  • Quick to install and easy to move
  • Fire-resistant, waterproof and frost resistant
  • Lightweight and highly durable
  • Reduces noise by up to 43.4 dB

Echo Barrier is a tested and proven noise barrier system that reduces noise by up to 42 dB. It works by treating sound at its source, rather than simply enclosing your perimeter. In addition to being lightweight and waterproof, they can be used in all kinds of conditions. Company logos can be incorporated into these acoustic barriers.

For Superior Workplace Sound Protection

Eco-optimised, high-performance attenuation for industrial applications.

Easy to install
Echo barriers are lightweight and can be installed in seconds without the need for permanent fixings, using the easy hook system. It is portable, durable, and easy to adjust to fit your needs.

Built for performance
The Echo H10 is designed to work in extreme weather conditions. It is weatherproof, frost-resistant and certified fire-resistant. They can be used in rainy and humid environments.

Unrivalled noise absorption
The Echo H10 can’t be beaten when it comes to effective sound absorption. Independent lab tests provide it reduces noise by up to 43.4dB.

Why Echo Barrier?

What makes our acoustic barriers so effective?

Our cutting edge acoustic barriers are used worldwide, tested and proven to give up to 43.4 dB noise control.

1. Front facing outer layer
Thanks to extra-durable, waterproof PVC, these acoustic barriers are easy to clean and look professional.

2. Noise-absorbent composite
Sound is prevented from reflecting off of the barrier by a lightweight, acoustic absorbent made from recycled materials.

3. Waterproof breathable membrane
Absorbs sound, not water.

4. Durable reinforced mesh
Extends product life to retain acoustic performance in harsh working environments.

Identifying Hazards and Managing Risk

Workers on-site will often be wearing hearing protection to perform their tasks. If the only thing separating the public from the work site is a site fence, then it is possible that the public will also need to protect their ears as they walk past.

Safety professionals refer to this as a walk by hazard. While the safety act encourages employers to identify hazards and manage risk, the onus is on the designer to plan ahead for hazards at each stage of a construction project.

Echo Barrier is simply the best product on the market for protection against noise hazards and construction site dust.

Decibels, Noise Attenuation and The Human Ear

Noise levels are measured in decibels (dB). Since the decibel is a logarithmic (non-linear) unit of measurement, noise attenuation of ‘just’ 3dB is equivalent to a substantial reduction in noise energy, i.e. 50% yet that reduction is only just perceptible to the human ear. If noise attenuation increases to 10dB, it equates to a reduction in noise energy of 90%; the human ear senses that as a noise reduction of 50%.

The chart below places this in the context of the performance of Echo Barrier’s H Series of acoustic panels. Taking this further, the chart makes clear why, in the field (on-site), it becomes difficult to attenuate noise by more than 20dB. What is especially important is that noise reduction of 20dB equates to an energy reduction of 99%, yet the remaining 1% of energy represents 25% of the noise level perceived by the human ear.

Decibel Reduction (dB) Energy Reduction (%) Noise reduction as perceived by the human ear
10 90 Sounds 50% as loud (Reduction of 50%)
20 99 Sounds 25% as loud (Reduction of 75%)
30 99.9 Sounds 12.5% as loud (Reduction of 87.5%)
40 99.99 Sounds 6.5% as loud (Reduction of 93.75%)

Key Factors in Successful Noise Attenuation

The position of the barrier in relation to the noise source.
The degree to which the barrier absorbs sound, rather than simply reflecting it. When noise is reflected, it can reverberate, aggravating noise pollution.
Greater mass offers greater noise attenuation (i.e. results in greater transmission loss), but for the sake of practicality, a barrier also needs to remain manageable in terms of its size and weight, especially if it is to be portable.

If barriers are manufactured to a high standard and present a professional image, the perceptions of their performance can be considerably enhanced.
