Soundex Acoustic Barriers at The Shard London

The Shard

Location: London, England | Industry: Construction

Project Information

During the three years of construction of this very prestigious project the principle contractor purchased the SOUNDEX® C1/2 Performance Acoustic Curtains to effectively screen around semi-permanent machinery that was in consistent use throughout the construction phase. Over and above the excellent acoustic performance of these noise barriers the inherent fire resistant properties meant that they could be used in close proximity to machinery with high heat output without raising any health and safety concerns.

  • Matt Hadden Section Engineer,

    The whole site team were amazed on the effectiveness in the reduction in the sound following the SOUNDEX® curtains being placed around our generator. Using these curtains to reduce the noise gave us the opportunity to increase the running times late into the night without causing any issues with the local residents regarding noise pollution. I would recommend SOUNDEX® and would not hesitate to use them again in the future should the need arise and we appreciate the advice we were given.
