Our timber acoustic barriers can reduce noise levels by as much as 32 decibels in laboratory conditions. They have been successfully installed for a wide range of applications, from highways and trunk roads to railways, housing and schools.

The growing impact of noise on people, planning and architecture has increased demand for acoustic barriers and fencing across a wide variety of applications from housing and schools, to transport and retail. 

Evidence from studies increasingly suggests that noise pollution can have a detrimental impact on modern living, from house prices, to physical health and well being. The impact of noise is often felt most in busy urban areas or industrial sites, however, there’s a solution to limiting noise and the damage it can cause to physical and mental well being.

Our Jakoustic® acoustic barriers and acoustic gates were specifically designed to deliver good noise reduction performance, sustainability and security and importantly, to blend in with the surrounding environment. 

The original Jakoustic® timber acoustic barrier system was first introduced in 2004, featuring our unique ‘tuning-fork’ posts. This design has been adapted and evolved to suit different applications and is available in a number of versions to provide solutions for a wide variety of noise problems.

We are the first UK manufacturer of timber acoustic barriers which can CE mark both its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highways Reflective system and Jakoustic® Plus Commercial & Highways Absorptive system as compliant with the requirements of EN 14388:2005 relating to Road traffic noise reducing devices. This follows the successful type testing and validation of both systems, including posts, reflective and absorptive surfaces, fixings and installation method carried out by BSI and detailed in its report number 8765852 dated 8th March 2019.  This landmark achievement allows us to make an appropriate Declaration of Performance in relation to a number of characteristics defined in the ZA annex of EN 14388:2005, in support of the CE marking of its Jakoustic® Commercial & Highways barriers as road noise reducing products under the EU Construction Products Directive and Regulation 305/2011. To request a copy of the Declaration of Performance, please contact our sales team.

When considering acoustic fencing you should take in account:

The location of noise source

The intensity and frequency of the source

The distance from the source to the acoustic barrier

The location of the position or areas to be screened

The density, height and degree of reflection/absorption required the barrier

In addition, our in-house design team will prepare detailed specification drawings and wind loading calculations when required.

Jacksons has achieved certification under the environmental chain-of-custody schemes of both the FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) and the PEFCTM (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification TM).

Whether you require supply of Jakoustic materials or a full design, manufacture and installation service, our team of experts can offer flexible solutions tailored to meet your needs.

We manufacture acoustic barriers for different applications, including reflective and absorptive barriers, lightweight acoustic barriers, or acoustic barriers specifically for mitigating road noise that can also be CE marked. To help you work out which acoustic barrier you need for your project, we've created a tool so you can easily compare applications, features, and heights of each barrier type.

Acoustic barriers work by disrupting the path of sound waves travelling from a noise source. This is done either by sound being reflected off the surface of the acoustic barrier, or being absorbed by the acoustic barrier. The height and location of the acoustic barrier will make a difference to the level of noise reduction and should be decided by a qualified sound engineer or acoustic consultant. Read more about this here.

Acoustic barriers are effective as long as they meet the requirements for material density, barrier construction, height, and distance between the noise source and receiver. They must be installed correctly with no gaps in the barrier. Timber acoustic barriers have been independently tested and proven to reduce noise by up to 32dB.

Acoustic barriers are structures that are installed to reduce noise. They are used internally and externally. Jacksons Fencing manufactures a range of external timber acoustic barriers which reduce noise either through reflection or absorption.

There are many types of noise barrier including timber, concrete, metal, brick, acrylic/Perspex, gabion walls, and earth bunds. When choosing a type of noise barrier you should consider the aesthetics, footprint, sustainability, and quality of the barrier in relation to cost.

We have an extensive library of content covering the top queries about acoustic fencing, including an in depth explanation about the different types of acoustic fencing, and what the difference is between an acoustic fence and a normal fence.
