Learn more about timber acoustic fencing and its benefits in this blog.

What is Acoustic Fencing?

Timber acoustic fencing, also referred to as sound barriers, acoustic barriers, or sound-proof fencing, is a unique fencing solution crafted to alleviate noise pollution while enhancing visual appeal.

Constructed from solid timber panels, this fencing uses specialist design elements to eliminate noise from sources like traffic, neighbouring properties, or other environmental factors.

What are the benefits of using Timber Acoustic Fencing?

Noise Reduction

One of the main benefits of acoustic fencing is the ability to reduce noise pollution. Whether you live near a busy road, railway, or commercial area, unwanted noise can be a constant source of irritation, especially as we enter the Spring and Summer months.

Acting as a barrier, sound-proof fencing can absorb and deflect sound waves, creating a quieter and more peaceful environment within your property.

Privacy Enhancement

In addition to noise reduction, acoustic barriers also act as an effective privacy barrier. The construction of the timber panels ensure that no one can see in.

Whether you’re relaxing in your garden, or whether this is guarding tools from a construction site, timber acoustic fencing offers a great level of security.

Aesthetic Appeal

Timber acoustic fencing combines the natural beauty of treated wood with functional design, making it a great addition to any premises.

With a few options available with First Fence, you can choose the design and best fit for your project, whether it be; EchoGroove, EchoReflect or EchoAbsorb.

Environmental Sustainability

As a renewable resource, timber is an environmentally friendly choice for fencing materials. By opting for timber acoustic fencing, you’re selecting a sustainable solution that reduces the reliance on no-renewable resources.

Additionally, responsible forestry practices ensure that timber harvesting is conducted in an environmentally conscious manner, minimising the impact of ecosystems.

Durability and Longevity

Acoustic barriers are built to withstand a range of weather conditions, as they are pressure treated to add to their durability and prolong the lifespan of your fencing investment. With continued maintenance, acoustic fencing can maintain its structural integrity and aesthetic appeal for many years to come.
