Most modern buildings use rooftop space to house plant and equipment such as chillers, air-conditioning units, pumps, blowers, compressors and generators.

In most cases this means the requirement of some type of noise control barrier to protect local residents and business.

Project specifics:

A petrol station, convenience store and drive through takeaway facility were being built amongst residential properties.

The roof was to house the air-conditioning unit, chillers and HVAC equipment needed for the operation of the centre.

Acoustic modelling was taken which showed a noise control barrier would be needed on the rooftop plant to bring the noise levels down to an acceptable night time level for nearby houses.

Flexshield solution:

Flexshield designed, manufactured and installed acoustic screens around the HVAC equipment.

The noise control screens were manufactured in a modular-clip-together style which meant installation could be done very simply needing no heavy lift equipment.

Also being pre-painted and galvanised allowed for an instant visual fix by hiding the equipment from the neighbour's view.

Flexshield manufactures a complete range of noise control solutions.
