When you want to provide long stretches of acoustic fencing – fast – the Echo barrier H8 acoustic barrier is the ideal option. At 3.5 metres long, it is about three times the length of the Echo Barrier H10 – yet it’s still lightweight – coming in at just 9kg. It’s also waterproof, weatherproof, fire resistant, and has a five-year lifespan.
In practice, this means very rapid fitting and removal (by one man), simplified transport and storage, and an acoustic screen performance that is without equal. As a result, the Echo Barrier H8 is a key part of current best practice for site and event noise management.
In addition to its acoustic qualities, the H8 has been designed to look good in prominent and highly visible locations. Furthermore, clients can take the opportunity to advertise their brand name or services on the noise barrier itself.

The Echo Barrier H8 is typically mounted onto existing fencing or scaffolding. Care should be taken during installation so that the acoustic barrier is positioned as close to the noise source as possible in order to maximise the performance of the noise barrier.
The acoustic elements of the Echo Barrier H8 Noise Barrier comprise a mass layer and a carefully designed acoustic absorbent layer. These not only attenuate the direct transmission of sound, but also absorb it, thereby reducing the sound reflected back towards the source and overall performance.
