Highway Sound Wall Barriers, also known as Sound Walls and Traffic Noise Barriers, are designed to have a high sound transmission loss value, thereby protecting the public against noise pollution, which can lead to hearing loss, stress, increased blood pressure and sleep disturbance.
Most municipal or Department of Transportation highway sound walls have two primary objectives. Transportation engineers, civil engineers and planners specify that:
Highway Sound Walls cast using AFTEC Precast Concrete Sound Wall Forming Equipment meet both of the preceding traffic noise mitigation and aesthetic criteria desired by Department of Transportation engineers and specifiers. Sound wall barriers manufactured with AFTEC Precast Concrete Sound Wall Forms have the following advantages:
