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.
Through a rigorous process of research and development, Echo Barrier applies acoustic science, innovative technology and practical thinking to create durable, sustainable high-quality products that offer world-leading performance and represent a sound business investment. We believe in excellence in the lab and in the field, creating products that endure and perform in the toughest conditions. Hand-finished, high-spec, weather and waterproof.

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.
