DONCHAMP® NoiseGuard Transparent Acrylic Noise Barriers

Allplastics Engineering are proud to have been chosen as a distributor of the DONCHAMP® range of Acrylics which includes the DONCHAMP® NoiseGuard noise barrier transparent acrylic panel range, within Australia.

The exponential growth in highway and bridge infrastructure projects across the Australian continent has resulted in tremendous demand for noise abatement solutions. In today's urban environment noise abatement and mitigation are indispensable requirements for motorways, tunnels, and bridges, which are in close proximity to residential and commercial precincts. Traditional timber and concrete noise barriers often have unfavorable visual impact, both for residents and road users, who may experience a "tunnel" effect.

In Australia, various road and transport authorities are proposing the use of clear or tinted coloured transparent noise barriers for key projects.

Shatter resistant options are available by the embedding of a filament within the DONCHAMP® NoiseGuard (FSR - Filament Shard Retention) transparent panel, with the further additional benefit of preventing bird strikes.

DONCHAMP® NoiseGuard cast acrylic is a specially designed & developed acrylic grade, which is highly weather resistant (30-year Clear limited manufacturer's warranty), excellent clarity & optical properties, exceptional mechanical properties & rigidity, simple to fabricate (cut, bend, & polish), whilst reducing the environmental noise pollution levels & hazardous high winds from roads, highways, bridges, & rails.
