Context

A housing estate in North London has been redeveloped to provide more houses and flats to cope with the growing property demand in the capital. The project provided an additional 80 homes on the site, with 20% of the new properties being ‘affordable’ homes.

Challenge

The estate is near to a busy road and behind many shops, restaurants and light industrial properties, and an acoustic barrier was required to mitigate the noise of deliveries, traffic and general day-to-day noise.

Solution

To achieve the desired reduction in noise, Jacksons Fencing supplied 135m of 6m-high Jakoustic® Reflective fencing to run alongside the estate behind the adjacent commercial properties.

Jakoustic® Reflective barriers are designed to reflect noise away from both faces and are manufactured using substantial, Jakcure® vacuum pressure-treated planed timber boards featuring a specially developed interlocking profile that eliminates gaps that sound can travel through to provide up to 28dB in noise reduction. The tall height of the barrier means that as well as mitigating noise, it also provides a more attractive view and increased privacy for residents overlooking the commercial buildings.

The natural timber facade of the fence gives the appearance of a regular garden fence, so maintains a residential feel but with the added benefits of providing an effective acoustic barrier. To enhance visual appeal further, the fence was designed to a custom specification with timber cover boards to the sides. Additionally, the galvanised steel I-beam posts were clad with matching timber to soften their appearance.

Outcome

As well as providing a reduction in noise, the Jakoustic® barrier provides residents with increased security due its anti-climb properties and 6m height.

The barrier is backed by a 25-year guarantee with Jacksons' timber treatment process, which will benefit the developers and residents with lower lifetime costs.
