Noise walls (also known as acoustic, sound or noise barriers) are precast concrete elements that are designed to inhibit the transmission of sound waves. There are 3 basic types (all of which can be manufactured with a variety of finishes).
Generally are placed at the road edge to reflect traffic noise. Some sound still passes over the barrier but there is a reduction in overall noise level behind the barrier. Reflective barriers are typically higher than other types.
These disperse the noise upwards and/or downwards due to their inclination and surface pattern. They are often considered to be a variation of the reflective barrier.
Sound is absorbed and dissipated by sound wave pressure moving through a carefully designed membrane or passage. These barriers generally use a propriety system for the sound absorption. Generally they are not effective for wide easements.
