Unlike wood fences or landscaping (which do very little to block sound), the Acoustifence does extraordinarily well in not only blocking sound but also producing far less reflective sound than solid walls do. It is easily installed or removed in less than one hour. Totally NON-mold and UV tolerant, this material is virtually indestructible and does a wonderful job as a sound barrier.
Independent lab tests of the Acoustifence material shows an STC of 28, which represents to the human ear approximately an 85% reduction in sound. However, results will vary, relative to surrounding sound reflective objects, i.e., buildings, and how much of the fence is installed.
The manufacturer suggests you consider your noise source as a bright light bulb on a very dark night. To reduce that light the first step is to put a barrier (Acoustifence) between it and you, blocking the direct light. Other objects in the area not blocked by the Acoustifence, will of course reflect an amount of reduced light to you. Sound will act in the same manner.
As Acoustiblok® is concerned about all pollution, the Acoustifence is 100% recyclable and comprised of over 64% recycled materials, the remainder being inert minerals.
