The Sturgis Iron and Metal sound barrier wall

  • sheet metal bending The stainless steel welding sound barrier wall needed to incorporate two gates to allow access by tractor-trailers and rail cars.

    Acoustical Solutions recommended the SoundScape Wall System to meet the Sturgis Iron and Metal project requirements.The Sturgis facility is located in Elkhart, Indiana where environmental conditions can be particularly harsh at times.

    Sturgis Iron and Metals engineering demands were also met with the SoundScape Wall. Sturgis also requested the ability to retrofit the sound wall to raise its height for future sight growth. The SoundScape Wall system can be easily modified in the field to meet expansion demands. Many consultants, engineers and architects now demand advanced technology and materials in the construction of sound barrier walls.

    The Sturgis Iron and Metal sound barrier wall was completed in January 2007, making the industrial site a quieter neighbor for the residential communities nearby. Acoustical Solutions was asked to provide a sound barrier wall that could withstand decades of freeze-thaw conditions while remaining architecturally appealing to the surrounding neighbors. New materials are being sought out that virtually eliminate any maintenance after the acoustical wall has been installed. In severe environmental conditions metal tends to rust and stain while concrete cracks easily in freeze-thaw conditions. For more information please contact Tim White at 800-782-5742, ext. It is lightweight and requires no heavy craning. Erecting a metal or concrete sound barrier wall requires the use of heavy machinery, another cause of apprehension at Sturgis. Unlike conventional sound wall systems, SoundScape Walls are extremely low maintenance. 32. Acoustical Solutions offers several advanced sound wall systems that are built for demanding hyper construction. The SoundScape Wall is designed to be a hyper construction sound wall (includes advanced focus and automatic capability on a single project). Graffiti removal was also a concern with these types of walls. Sturgis Iron and Metal did not want to use a standard metal or concrete wall with the demanding conditions
