Consultancy & advice
New rail projects and planned maintenance works often take place over vacation periods, weekend, and late nights, so as to avoid disruption. This makes these projects hugely time sensitive, with pressures heaped upon contractors to meet tight deadlines. Echo Barrier’s temporary sound barriers can be deployed quickly, keeping efficiency optimised, and also removed promptly once the works are complete.
Our temporary acoustic solutions reduce noise from rail projects by up to 97%. The benefits of this are twofold – environmental health is improved for both workforce and communities as nuisance noise and noise pollution are eliminated. Productivity is driven further still as operating hours are increased. With just one man able to deploy and remove Echo Barrier’s products by himself, our solutions offer exceptional value for rail projects, with their specific requirements taken into full consideration.
Echo Barrier products are waterproof front and back, and totally UV resistant, meaning they perform and maintain appearance no matter what weather the Western Pacific regions throws at them.
Echo Barrier partner with site and project managers from planning onwards, to ensure the most cost effective project management takes place. We also intervene once noise pollution issues become clear, and are able to respond quickly and effectively to eliminate nuisance noise.
Quick to assemble and so lightweight, our sound barriers optimise on project workforce productivity.
Our product range carries models designed with rail repair projects in mind. This allows planner and repair schedulers to facilitate all-night projects with confidence, which keep complaints to a minimum, and the trains running to timetable.

The Track Partnership deployed Echo Barrier’s temporary acoustic curtains, with tents, to diminish noise and dust. As a result the project finished on time, and there was not even one complaint. Read more
