ASC's SoundFence for Industrial Noise Abatement

ASC SoundFence is a cost effective outdoor noise barrier and absorber ideally suited for surrounding noisy equipment. If you have outdoor compressors, transformers or HVAC equipment in close proximity to residential areas, odds are good that you need an ASC SoundFence. There are many types of noise barriers available, but none of them absorb noise like the SoundFence. They also share a common theme: high cost. The SoundFence gets the job done better while costing a fraction of comparable barrier systems.

This Noise Stopper Works 24-7
The pictures shown here are a cell phone repeater station, located next to a residential neighborhood. Without any noise control, the noise generated by the outdoor mechanicals is deafening, extending out many hundreds of feet in each direction.

The only sure-fire way to deal with noise is to eradicate it permanently whenever it shows up, 24-7, 365 days a year, year in and year out. This what the ASC SoundFence does so well, making it one of the only solutions of its kind. And the basic design is extremely adaptable to fit your specific needs.

Turns Noise into Heat Energy
A typical block wall will bounce sound upward where it can recurve back to ground level a short distance away. The block wall can also tend to amplify the sound as well. The SoundFence is different. As noise hits the SoundFence absorption panels, it enters the medium density fiberglass mesh where it is permanently dissipated in the form of heat. Instead of bouncing off the surface, it goes away and is not heard from again.

ASC manufactures the patented 3” thick, panelized noise stopping unit that typically has a fiber-cement barrier on one side and 2" of sound absorption on the other side. The weatherproof panels can also be mounted to an existing cement block wall as long as the top is protected from direct exposure. SoundFence panels can be used as a standalone fence, with posts only. A 2 x 6 header across the top and 6 x 6 pressure treated base is all that is required. Custom sizes are available to accommodate fences from 3’ to 8’ tall.

ASC Engineering will review your project to determine the most effective use of the SoundFence for your noise control needs. To do that, we may ask for photos, drawings, and possibly a sound test. We'll work with your team to design a package, and generate a quote. Upon approval, the ASC factory will build your SoundFence Panels and ship them to your location. The design process entails a small fee which is applied to your SoundFence purchase.

In many cases, we can adapt the SoundFence to fit your existing plant structures, saving you considerable expense.
