Carsonite offers the AcoustaShield™ Sound Barrier System, which cost-effectively shields communities from the noises of highways, mass transit lines, crowded residential roads and other sources. This weather- and fire-resistant barrier dramatically exceeds American Association of State Highway and Transportation Officials (AASHTO) and Department of Transportation (DOT) specifications, and is more effective than concrete, metal, or wood.
The modular, lightweight sections - weighing only 7.5 pounds per square foot - install using a simple post and foundation design. Installation is faster and less expensive than other systems because the AcoustaShield Sound Barrier System requires no heavy lifting equipment, and can be installed more quickly and with fewer workers.
The AcoustaShield Sound Barrier System uses unwanted scrap waste as filler for fiberglass-reinforced polymer composite tongue-and-groove modular sections.
AcoustaShield is available in heights up to 28 feet (8.5 m) in virtually any color or color combination.
