The noise barrier (also called "acoustic barrier" or "highway sound barrier"), is designed to protect people from noise pollution. It is built onsides of the high way, subway station, train station. The acoustic barrier materials are wood, acrylic, steel, polycarbonate, cotton. Now, more and more creative designers are willing to choose polycarbonate sheets as the main material, and why?
1. Excellent impact resistance
Polycarbonate offers really high impact resistance, it is 300 times stronger than glass, 25 times stronger acrylic. It can withstand heavy snow/rain. Normally, 6mm, 8mm,10mm flat polycarbonate sheets are the suitable thickness for the noise barrier. Otherwise, polycarbonate is the main material of riot shields.
2. Lighter weight
The polycarbonate density is 1.2kg/m³, it is the half weight of glass. It will reduce the cost of the supporting system.
3. Longer lifespan
With co-extruded protective layers, polycarbonate offers outstanding weatherability and excellent performance under strong ultraviolet rays. The lifespan is more than 10 years.
4. Easy to cut
It is easy for polycarbonate to cut to size by the common tools.
