Noise walls may also be known as acoustic, sound or noise barriers. They are precast concrete elements, often a modular system with steel posts, designed to inhibit the transmission of sound waves.
They protect inhabitants of sensitive land use areas from noise pollution.

“Often we work as a subcontractor to the main contractor, working in partnership to help deflect and lessen noise which otherwise might be troublesome to those in close vicinity to where it is created.”
