Highway Sound Barriers & Precast Concrete Noise Barriers

Usually funded by a governmental entity, either reflective or absorptive precast concrete highway sound barriers are used to protect neighborhoods along highways from constant traffic noise. Reflective panels are used to reflect noise into the environment off the face of the wall, while absorptive panels can absorb noise up to or beyond an NRC 0.9 rating. Noise barriers are most commonly manufactured with texture on both sides supported by steel columns. Our team of engineers can design highway sound barriers to fit the unique needs of your project.
