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.
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 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.
