Concrete Sound Wall: Noise Reduction

Description:

Noise pollution has been a major concern of health deterioration due to restlessness and sleeplessness. We should not have to compromise our quality of life to bear with our noisy neighbors. Whether you live near a school zone, construction site, high traffic area, or any areas with excessive noise, concrete sound walls are the most effective methods of cutting down the noise!

  • Noise pollution has been a major concern of
    health deterioration due to restlessness and
    sleeplessness. We should not have to compromise
    our quality of life to bear with our noisy
    neighbors. Whether you live near a school zone,
    construction site, high traffic area, or any
    areas with excessive noise, concrete sound walls
    are the most effective methods of cutting down
    the noise! By reading this article you will
    understand what you can do to reduce the level of
    intrusive noise entering your home.

  • To begin, lets understand the nature of sound
    waves. Sound waves are very similar to water, as
    it would bounce off objects and flow through
    holes. For instance, sound waves from cars
    zipping past your home would bounce off your
    driveway and flow through the windows that you
    have opened in your living room. However, unlike
    water, sound waves can also pass through objects
    that are thin and uncompressed. This means, even
    if you had closed your window, sound waves can
    still potentially pass through your drywall and
    enter your home. Noise-Reduction

Depending on object density, sound may still
able to penetrate it!

  • Another rule to remember how sound waves travel
    is the line of sight. If the source creating
    the sound is in your sight, then youll be able
    to hear it! This means if you live on a hill, you
    may want to build a taller wall!
  • An important factor to look at is sound wave
    intensity, which is measured in decibels. The
    loudness of sound generally doubles when sound is
    increased by 10 dB. According to Harvard Medical
    School Health Letter, studies have shown
    prolonged exposure to 85 or more decibels can
    cause permanent hearing loss. More importantly,
    physiological damage can also occur at lower
    levels!
  • In Canada and the United States, general
    permitted noise level exposure in a 80 dB to 90
    dB environment should not exceed 8 hours.

5
  • At 80 dB, heavy city traffic is one of the most
    pervasive unwanted noises transmitted to
    residential homes! When noise pollution hit your
    front lawn, precast concrete sound barriers may
    be an ideal solution for stopping the noises from
    reaching your ears.
  • According to National Precast Concrete
    Association, concretes greater mass reduces
    sound penetrating through a wall by more than 80
    compared with wood or steel frame construction.
    precast concrete sound barriers will provide you
    the peace and quiet that youve been looking for.

6
  • Finally, before you head out to build your
    precast concrete sound barriers you may want to
    consider the following points
  • Understand where most intrusive noise are coming
    from
  • Decide on the level of decibels reduction you
    want your sound barriers to have (not all walls
    provide equal noise reduction)
  • Understand the maximum permissible height that
    you can build your sound barrier (ranges
    differently in each province/state, check with
    your municipality)
  • Determine the thickness of your sound barrier
    (thickness usually equates with price)
  • Determine the design your sound barrier (some
    concrete walls have holes, which would not be
    ideal in reducing noise level)
  • Good luck concrete sound barrier hunting!
