Acoustic Barrier Technology

Acoustic technology,
award winning science

Echo Barrier’s award-winning products are the result of our rigorous application of science and technology. Our products are the highest quality on the market, and deliver unmatched noise reduction at a great value.

Our modular acoustic barriers are designed to be quick and easy to deploy, while still delivering the best noise absorption you will find.

Outstanding performance

Echo Barrier products undergo thorough laboratory and field testing, to ensure that you get the best possible performance every time you use them.

Echo Barrior products are unrivalled at reducing sound pollution, but are light enough for one person to install them. Despite being thinner and lighter than our competitors’ products, our barriers are more effective.

Our products excel in the six areas most essential for noise reduction products:

Echo Barrier products are made with a special high-tech composite material that absorbs noise and suppresses noise reflection. At frequencies of 300Hz-1khz, it absorbs up to 100% of sound.

Echo Barrier products are fully waterproof to industry standards, IPx 6/9. They are effective in heavy rain and can be jet-washed.

Traditional acoustic blankets and noise barriers are often made of water-absorbent materials (such as fibreglass and Rockwool). When these materials get waterlogged, they weigh the barriers down and cut their noise reduction in half.

Extensive testing has proved that Echo Barrier's products provide unrivalled noise attenuation in the field. Laboratory tests have shown that our barriers reduce noise by up to 40dB. Even though our barriers are 50% lighter than conventional acoustic barriers, they are more effective. Echo Barrier's modular system of acoustic barriers are perfectly balanced in size and weight. They easily be linked and reconfigured to customize your barriers to for your work environment.

Echo Barrier's modular system of acoustic barriers are easy to move, deploy, and reconfigure for any situations.
If you need to create an acoustic wall or curtain, you can link the barriers vertically or horizontally. If you need extra noise reduction, they can be doubled up easily.
Echo Barrier's acoustic products can be positioned and modified to to meet your needs in almost any situation.

The geometry of noise mitigation concerns the relative positions of:
* i) any barrier;
* ii) the source of noise it is intended to mitigate;
* iii) the noise receiver (in this case, the human ear).

The closer the barrier is placed to the noise source -making its "acoustic shadow" larger- the greater the noise attenuation. A barrier can also reduce more sound if it is made taller, or by using fence extentions

As Echo Barrier products are lightweight and portable, they can be moved to cast the optimum acoustic shadow, and maintain the perfect site geometry as the project progresses.

The critical range in noise control is 300Hz-1000Hz. A noise control barrier must absorb as much sound as possible over this range if it is to be considered effective. Tested in the field, our barriers average a remarkable 77% efficiency over the crucial range. Considering our products are half the thickness and much lighter in weight than alternatives our competitive advantage becomes clear.

All Echo Barriers are designed with the end user in mind, they are easy to store, transport and install making for maximum site efficiency

What makes our acoustic barriers so effective?

The best way to understand how our temporary noise control barriers deliver market-leading performance at minimum weight is to take a look inside.

Rigorous testing

There are two key measurements to consider when testing an acoustic barrier’s performance:

  • Transmission loss: The decrease in noise level (measured in decibels) that results when sound passes through a solid barrier;
  • Efficiency: The ability of a barrier to prevent sound reflection and its consequent increase in noise.


By concentrating on one of these measures it is relatively easy for some barriers to perform well in the lab alone, but it is performance in the field that is vital.

Both in the lab and on worksites, Echo Barrier’s products achieve world-leading performance for both transmission loss and efficiency of sound absorption.

In some circumstances, Echo Barrier’s products perform better in the field than in a lab. The chart below shows the results of independent tests using a diesel-powered trenchless excavation drill.

When compared with their performance in the laboratory, Echo Barrier panels deployed on-site achieved an additional 5 dB in noise reduction at certain frequencies.
