Noise pollution, is often viewed as a nuisance than a true problem. Yet evidence suggests that overexposure to loud noise can impact human and wildlife health. Noise has been cited as a causal factor in certain ailments from sleep disturbance to hypertension. In the U.S. , laws regulate the levels of permissible highway noise. If noise levels exceed certain thresholds, noise abatement measures must be taken.
Paragon Noise Barriers, Inc. has designed, developed and currently manufactures a revolutionary noise barrier product called Noise D-Fence™. Although concrete walls can be utilized as sound barriers along highways, they do nothing to absorb sound. Sound reflects off the concrete and continues to bounce off of all other non-absorbing material. Noise D-Fence™ reduces sound by 75%. Noise D Fence with 40% of the product made from recycled materials also has a light weight construction, resulting in lower transportation costs. Both these factors, not only result in less noise pollution but a lower
environmental impact. More about noise barriers at at http://paragonnoisebarriers.com/index.cfm.
