Installation of an acoustic fence was required for development consent to be successfully sought for an existing Tavern and construction of a new Dan Murphy’s Liquor store. The acoustic fence required installation along the boundary of a new car park to shield adjoining residential properties from noise generated during the standard operation of the new commercial facility.
Space limitations due to the construction of a new retaining wall inside the site boundary meant Rohrig Constructions required an all-encompassing fence solution that could be:
- Mounted to the top of the new and existing retaining wall;
- Was of the highest acoustic integrity, shielding residential properties; and
- Offered premium aesthetics, and blended into the landscape.
Modular Wall Systems provided a structurally certified solution utilising their acoustically rated, next generation fence – SlimWall. The unique, patented high tensile steel post system enabled installation into the retaining wall via core-drilling holes and fixing the posts in place using non-shrink grout. The remaining run of wall was installed into the ground using concrete pile foundation in a narrow space between the kerb and the site boundary.
SlimWall next generation fencing uses the AcoustiMaxTM 50mm panels, which has a surface density of 14.5kg/m2 and rated at RW25, and is completely continuous with no gaps or openings enabling maximum acoustic integrity for the life of the product. The SlimWall fencing solution was painted upon completion of installation to complement the overall aesthetic of the building design for a fully integrated next generation finish.
