Rapid Deployment

Echo Barrier’s modular system is quick to deploy on any site: the innovative noise-absorbing panels are effective and durable, while remaining compact and lightweight. Easy and safe to manoeuvre and transport, they can be handled by a sole operative.
The acoustic panels are readily fitted onto any structure – typically solid or mesh fencing or scaffolding. They can be configured, combined and layered to create barriers that respond to specific conditions and challenges. To create a large acoustic wall, they can be linked both vertically and laterally.
For transportation or storage, the lightweight, flexible panels can be rolled up and secured using the integrated buckle clip.

Waterproof

Independent tests prove that Echo Barrier acoustic panels do not absorb water when exposed to heavy rain or when jet-washed. They are designated as waterproof (BSEN 60529:1992 IPX6 / IPX9 standards).
Built around an innovative sound-absorbing composite, Echo Barrier panels perform to full effect, whatever the weather.

Corporate image

Beyond their outstanding performance – acoustic, physical and environmental – Echo Barrier’s panels offer aesthetic benefits. Designed to carry corporate branding, they are built to maintain their appearance over time, so they consistently convey a positive message.
When it comes to projecting a professional, responsible image in the field, Echo Barrier proves an asset. The panels are hand-finished for both outstanding durability and impressive visual presentation they can be printed with logos and community care messages to enhance communication and brand. Their Class 5 PVC exterior is resistant to fading from exposure to sunlight, while jet-washing will safely keep them immaculate.

Built to last

Hand-finished and made from high-quality, high-tech materials, Echo Barrier’s acoustic panels offer long-term high performance. Typically, they last up to five times longer than conventional barriers and sound blankets, and in certain circumstances can have a lifespan of more than 10 years.
The panels are waterproof, so their performance is not affected by dampness and rain, and they are resistant to extremes of temperature (from minus 40 up to 70 degrees Centigrade).

Exceptional acoustic performance

With its award-winning system of acoustic panels, Echo Barrier offers world-leading intelligent noise management
At its heart is a hi-tech composite which cushions and absorbs noise – 100% at certain frequencies. In particular, the composite vastly outperforms conventional noise-absorbing materials when it comes to low frequencies.
Moreover, Echo Barrier’s acoustic panels are compact and lightweight, so they are easy to configure and reconfigure in the course of a project, as circumstances and requirements change. They can also be linked both vertically and laterally to create an acoustic curtain or wall, and doubled up in thickness for increased noise attenuation.
Whatever the noise-management challenge, Echo Barrier’s consistent aim is to offer unbeatable overall performance.

Our Story

Echo Barrier was founded by acoustics expert Peter Wilson, BSc, MSc. Drawing on more than 30 years’ experience in acoustic engineering, Peter addressed the challenges of noise pollution caused by worksites and live events.
Echo Barrier’s innovative noise management products, built around a hi-tech composite, came onto the market in 2010. Since then, offering an unbeatable combination of performance and practicality, Echo Barrier has been successful in improving life for operatives in the field and for local communities around the world.

The company has gone from strength to strength, securing major contracts in such fields as construction, road & rail, power, oil & gas, mining and events. High-profile projects have included the One World Trade Center in New York, London 2012 Olympics and the Sydney Light Railway.

Echo Barrier continues to research and innovate, furthering its commitment to combating noise pollution – and to enhancing the sustainability of projects and businesses – through the practical application of acoustic technology.

Health and the environment

By enabling intelligent noise management, Echo Barrier plays an increasingly important role in protecting the health and well-being of operatives and communities.
As the World Health Organization wrote in 2011: “Noise pollution is considered not only an environmental nuisance but also a threat to public health.” It is estimated that more than 30% of the population is regularly exposed to noise that has a negative impact on well-being, with stress and cardio-vascular disease among the associated risks.
Echo Barrier also takes its environmental responsibilities seriously, manufacturing products that contain no hazardous substances and which make substantial use of recycled materials.
Waste is minimised through Echo Barrier’s buy-back scheme: any acoustic panels that are returned at the end of their life are sent for recycling or disposal in accordance with strict guidelines from the Carbon Trust.
Echo Barrier has been awarded a 5-star rating for its carbon footprint and is well on track for the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
