Jacksons - Acoustic Security Fencing Barriers
Our timber acoustic barriers can reduce noise levels by as much as 32 decibels in laboratory conditions. They have been successfully installed for a wide range of applications, from highways and trunk roads to railways, housing and schools.
The growing impact of noise on people, planning and architecture has increased demand for acoustic fencing solutions across a wide variety of applications from housing and schools, to transport and retail.
Evidence from studies increasingly suggests that noise pollution can have a detrimental impact on modern living, from house prices to physical health and well being. The impact of noise is often felt most in busy urban areas or industrial sites, however, there’s a solution to limiting noise and the damage it can cause to physical and mental well being.
Our Jakoustic® fencing and gate systems were specifically designed to deliver good noise reduction performance, sustainability and security and importantly, to blend in with the surrounding environment.
The proven and flexible Jakoustic® timber acoustic barrier system first introduced in 2004 that features our unique ‘tuning-fork’ posts (Steel I-beam posts for heights over 5 metres) and is available in a number of versions to provide solutions to a wide variety of noise problems.
We are the first UK manufacturer of timber acoustic barriers which can CE mark both its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highways Reflective system and Jakoustic® Plus Commercial & Highways Absorptive system as compliant with the requirements of EN 14388:2005 relating to Road traffic noise reducing devices. This follows the successful type testing and validation of both systems, including posts, reflective and absorptive surfaces, fixings and installation method carried out by BSI and detailed in its report number 8765852 dated 8th March 2019.
This landmark achievement allows us to make an appropriate Declaration of Performance in relation to a number of characteristics defined in the ZA annex of EN 14388:2005, in support of the CE marking of its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highways barriers as road noise reducing products under the EU Construction Products Directive and Regulation 305/2011.
