Smart idea: Noise-reducing barriers

Are noise complaints a potential challenge for your event? Temporary acoustic barriers might provide the answer.

Echo Barrier is a noise reduction system that has been used successfully at high-profile international events – including the 2012 London Olympics – in reducing the impact of sound on the local environment. With noise restrictions presenting a real obstacle in Sydney, this technology could be a game-changer for event organisers.

Director of Echo Barrier Australia Ray Lee said, “Councils or event organisers can purchase them for use throughout the year, or they can hire them on an as-needed basis. The barriers do not absorb water, so they are ideal for outside use and durable enough to be left up throughout the life of a festival. Also, they are flexible and light enough that one person can set up and break them down easily.”
