Location is the prime driver in construction projects. But prime locations in residential or commercial districts run the risk of complaints, delays, over runs, fines, and dents in productivity. This is where Echo Barrier come in. Our expert team understand differing state and territory noise pollution frameworks, and will work with you at any stage of the project to deliver noise control solutions that optimise environmental health and maintain productivity.
Echo Barrier work with you at all stages of a project to develop effective noise reduction strategies. We can partner with you at planning stage, or join projects at any phase as problems occur. Our acoustic barriers are lightweight, portable, and easy to assemble, keeping transportation and storage costs right down. Just one labourer can move barriers into place, keeping associated labour costs to a minimum too.
The acoustic barriers can be deployed directly around the source of noise pollution, such as plant, or used as fencing to give high performance protection to the surrounding community. Our solutions protect against dust, debris, and emissions.
Australia and New Zealand have some extreme weather. UV resistant and totally waterproof front and back, our products keep performing in any conditions. And with a shelf life of over 5 years our noise barriers are the most long-lasting, representing unparalleled lifetime value.
We partner with health and safety professionals to enable construction projects to meet legislative requirements, raising the bar in environmental health and community relations. Quick to assemble, and the most effective solution on the market, our products reduce complaints and noise pollution immediately.
Whether there are fixed state regulations on acceptable acoustic levels, or enforcement is subject to the discrepancy of local officers, we ensure your construction site is within remit. Our products are built with compliance in mind. We are proud of our partnerships with the health and safety profession, and will work with you across the project lifecycle to ensure project success with no compromise on safety standards.
