Leading Noise Combo Solution Required For Meat Supplier
Arcadian Organic & Natural Meat Co is Australia’s leading supplier of quality certified organic and natural meat. Their best-practice approach saw them act swiftly when Local Council brought to their attention complaints by neighbouring residents from noise being emitted from early morning delivery trucks and forklift activity. This in-turn required Arcadian Organic & Natural Meat Co to engage an acoustic engineer.
Any sound mitigating solution had to meet the mandatory requirements specified by the acoustic engineer. A small creek located along the southern boundary of the property meant special consideration needed to be given to the wall installation. Finally, an additional requirement of the noise barrier was to blend seamlessly in with the properties rural vegetation and flora with minimal disruption to the surroundings.
The GuardianWall system with its strength of offering height up to 9m and utilising galvanised UB support columns was deemed most suitable for this project that spanned 70 metres long x 6 metres high. The ingenious noise mitigating solution designed by ModularWalls combined 19 bays of sound reflecting AcoustiMax75 panels creating a noise reduction of almost 30dBa and 6 bays of leading-edge sound absorbing wall, AcoustiSorb in the most challenging of sections (the only sound absorbing panel available in the market). Given the soil conditions encountered near the neighbouring creek were outside typical parameters, deeper footings were made to ensure sufficient soil capacity wall stability. The pre-finish panels meant the fence didn’t require painting following installation, and the green eculypt colour blended perfectly with surrounding vegetation and flora. The end result saw compliance given by local council and a very satisfied customer. ModularWalls provided a turnkey solution from concept drawings, detailed design and engineering through to installation.
