Outdoor soundproofing usually involves blocking noise from highway construction, traffic or mechanical equipment (air conditioners, chillers, etc.). In most states, when they are doing highway construction they put up sound barrier walls to shield or block noise from reaching the residential neighborhoods nearby.
Highway noise has been a problem for many communities for years. With increased residential development and urbanization, it’s only been natural that our roads generate more noise. One of the effective ways to reduce unwanted highway noise is the use of noise blocking acoustical walls and fences.
Highway noise barrier walls are used when busy interstates and highways are built near highly populated residential areas. When outdoor soundproofing is needed from mechanically generated noise, acoustical enclosures and outdoor sound barriers are most often used.

Outdoor sound curtains, or sound curtain noise barrier walls, are a highly economical and effective method of reducing noise generated from noisy equipment or processes that are exposed to the elements. This unique composite material combines a sound absorber with a noise barrier into a flexible and versatile panel.
Soundproofing panels are modular and can be installed on fences, frames, or other support structure, including construction fencing, roof top barriers, by-pass pumps, gas compressors and many others.

Noise Barrier/Sound Absorber Sound Blankets – ANC-AB110-EXT-R-2
ANC-AB110-EXT-R-2 offers the benefits of both a noise barrier and a sound absorber composite in one product. ANC-AB110-EXT-R-2 product consists of an exterior grade, UV resistant heavy-duty faced quilted fiberglass absorber bonded to a one-pound per sq. ft. reinforced loaded vinyl barrier.
Heavy-duty facing is a 10 oz per sq yd vinyl-coated-polyester (VCP) quilted to the sound absorber rather than the standard 4.5 oz facing. Curtain panels are constructed with grommets across the top and bottom and exterior grade Velcro seals along the
Typically used as modular curtain panels in outdoor applications where high abuse resistance or excellent durability as well as maximum longevity and noise reduction is required. Also used as sliding acoustical doors, durable acoustical jacket on fans or valves, as well as a temporary noise barrier on outdoor construction projects. AB110EXT-R2 SOUND CURTAINS
ANC-AB110EXT-R Sound Curtains
ANC- AB110EXT-R offers the benefits of both a noise barrier and a sound absorber composite in one product for outdoor applications. This barrier-backed product consists of an exterior grade, UV resistant heavy-duty faced quilted fiberglass absorber bonded to a one-pound per sq. ft. reinforced loaded vinyl barrier. The heavy-duty facing is a 10 oz per sq yd vinyl-coated-polyester (VCP) quilted to the sound absorber rather than the standard 4.5 oz. facing. Curtain panels are constructed with grommets across the top and bottom, exterior grade Velcro seals along the vertical edges, and are sewn with Gore Tenara exterior grade thread.
Typically used as modular curtain panels on long-term construction projects or permanent outdoor applications such as enclosing HVAC equipment, dust collectors or similar machinery behind a manufacturing plant where UV and abuse resistance as well as maximum durability, longevity and noise reduction is required. Also available with a one-inch thick quilted fiberglass absorber, or with a two-pound per sq. ft. reinforced barrier. AB110EXT-R Sound Curtain Data

Outdoor Manufacturing Noise
Excessive outdoor noise in industrial and manufacturing areas from blowers, engines, chillers, cooling towers, large dust collection systems, and other mechanical noise can often times become a concern for neighboring residential areas.
To quiet down loud Industrial Noise Using industrial acoustical treatments such as noise barrier enclosures or soundproofing treatments can greatly reduce this risk.
