If you’re installing DIY fencing at your place of residence, it’s wise to work with materials that match your home’s aesthetic. I mean, let’s be honest, nobody should have to look at an ugly fence while sipping their morning coffee. If you work with Wallmark’s range of panel fencing, you won’t have to.
Thanks to their smooth exterior, all Wallmark panels can be sprayed and painted with rollers and brushes, allowing you to tailor your walls and fencing to suit your taste. You’ll be hard-pressed to find alternate wall and fencing options that are multi-functional, fit-for-purpose and accommodating of your DIY designs.
Learn the difference between absorptive and reflective acoustic walls
Not all noise walls are created equal, so it’s important to make the right choice when you tackle the task of DIY fencing. Simply put, there are two main types of sound walls: absorptive and reflective.
What are absorptive sound walls?
In a nutshell, absorptive sound walls take in sound energy, essentially diffusing sound inside their panels so that little to no noise is reflected off the barrier itself. Much like a sponge absorbs water, an absorptive sound wall absorbs, you guessed it— sound.
What are reflective sound walls?
Reflective sound walls push sound energy back across the source (away from the receiver) and into the atmosphere. The sound is thus to the reflective wall what the body is to a trampoline, an entity that is ricocheted away, in this instance from the noise-reduction fencing.
Make sure your modular fencing is made to make a difference
Not all acoustic fencing is created equal, so it’s important to be discerning when choosing your design. Whether you’re looking to protect your property from neighbouring noise pollution this season, or contain the sounds radiating from your own patio party, you’ll need modular panels that are acoustically designed to do more than just look pretty.
In a nutshell, your boundary wall system should be composed of acoustically rated, reinforced panels that can be custom-made and tailored to your specific sound retention, or reflection, needs. At Wallmark we understand this all too well, which is why we love helping our clients to transform their backyards into sound-proofed sanctuaries.
So, what’s the Wallmark difference?
Not only have our products been approved by the National Association of Testing Authorities (NATA), our reflective noise walls also boast an acoustic rating of RW28 and our absorptive walls an NRC rating of 0.95. It sounds technical, we know. But basically our boundary walls and acoustic fencing cut the mustard, and we’ve got the certification to prove it.
