SlimWall keeps traffic noise at a minimum for childcare centre on busy road
28 April 2017
A new childcare centre being built near a busy road required an acoustic fence as specified by the Council. The Council’s purpose was to keep the noise of the kids in but in reality, due to the Childcare centre’s close proximity to a busy road, it also acted as a barrier for the centre to keep the traffic noise out.
ModularWalls installed a SlimWall acoustic fence to the perimeter of the centres new playground at a height of 2.1m. To maintain access and aesthetic continuity a Modular composite gate was also installed at one end. Our Modular gates provide the same look and feel as well as acoustic protection to any wall style and can accept varying lock and latch requirements. The final wall was painted by the centre themselves in bright and vibrant colours to enhance the look and feel for the kids. One section was also painted with a Dulux Blackboard paint which meant the kids could scribble away on a full-size blackboard!
