Challenge

Lend Lease, in conjunction with Abi Group, required a noise attenuation wall for The Northern Road upgrade project.

The project needed to meet strict specifications, including extended design life and impact resistance. Together with high acoustic performance, a key aspect was to maintain a superior aesthetic look.

Modular Wall Systems worked to present a high-performing and cost-effective solution.

Solution

The solution was a GuardianWall™ system incorporating AcoustiMax 75™ panels. The system comfortably exceeds the required Rw (Weighted Sound Reduction Index) of over 31dB, ensuring effective noise abatement.

The customised design included a simple, singular beam footing that integrated with the existing retaining wall.

A unique characteristic of the panels was a ‘fit for purpose’ universal beam infill that ensured a like finish on both sides, eliminating the inferior, yet common trait, of having a ‘good’ and ‘bad’ side.

GuardianWall™ is lightweight and requires no heavy lifting equipment at time of installation, allowing contractors to install it with ease and within a very short time-frame.
