Hi,

I found this form via a youtube video. I’m trying to reduce the amount of traffic noise that gets to my house, is this the right forum you are more focused on musicians?
Thanks!

G, Noise must be qualified and quantified. You must measure frequency and amplitude over a week time period to see the high and low-pressure areas. We have a noise design service where you take the measurements and then we design the barrier for you based on your measurement data. We provide you build drawings so you can build your own barrier. The design fee for this service is 1,500.00 USD.

Hi Dennis,

I might be interested. Do you have a document that describes how those measurements should be taken?

Thanks

This is a very helpful video about traffic noise and I see this full video where I get the general knowledge of traffic noise and how to reduce traffic noise and where can I get more information about traffic noise reduction.

R, You must measure the frequency and amplitude of the noise you are dealing with. All noise is different. Traffic noise is different than machine noise, machine noise is different than other types. It all must be measured. Once we know the noise rates and levels, we can then build the correct barrier. Without measurements, we are just guessing and that is fatal with noise.

I am a victim of noise pollution from the highway beside my apartment, definitely not an ideal apartment location but I had to make a compromise for a cheap price. Anyways, the traffic noise was becoming really disturbing, I seeked help from my neighbours and they recommended this noise screen which helped cancelled out noise. The screen is flexible and aesthetically pleasing, I was skeptical at first, but it worked perfectly, and reduced the traffic noise.

For this type of circumstances, it is good to resort to a service. For acoustic insulation, barrier fence or outdoor acoustic panels I recommend https://www.acousticbarrierfactory.com/
