Being a notoriously higher wind area, a lightweight rooftop noise solution needed to withstand the additional wind loading and elements over time.
With these design requirements in mind, an absorptive PVC noise barrier was recommended for this project to help reduce noise at the source. It could be built to the heights required to clear the large equipment without loosing structural integrity due to the interlocking nature of the panels and the steel posts.
A strong mounting system was needed to secure each support post. It was necessary to secure the posts directly to the building structure. The installer needed to cut into the roof materials to mount the support posts on the concrete base below. Following the post installation, the wall assembly went smoothly much in part due to the straightforward nature of the system and the skill of the installers.
“The roof system designed by Durisol is a great solution and it allowed us to make up for lost time. Once the materials were craned onto the roof and posts were erected, the panels were assembled very quickly. I did not have experience with this style of noise barrier before but will definitely be looking for more solutions like this from Durisol in the future.”
