Rail Barriers

Noise control to keep rail works on track

Rail projects are renowned for being time sensitive. Repairs often take place at night when noise control is at a premium and new construction projects are often in busy neighborhoods. We’ve been helping rail contractors overcome noise control challenges for more than three decades. Our lightweight panels are easy to assemble and quick to transport, and keep performing in any weather. We are your noise control partners in rail projects.

Consultancy & advice

Frequent exposure to loud noise can permanently damage a person’s hearing. Excessive noise from equipment is a particular problem for demolition workers—especially as surrounding materials like brick, concrete and tile structures exacerbate the situation. Our acoustic engineers will work with you to find an effective way to protect your workers and neighboring communities from the harmful effects of noise pollution and dust.
We can advise you on the products you need to prevent sound bouncing off ceilings and walls when working inside buildings and next to high-rise structures. And we can help you find a mobile solution that ensures your temporary acoustic barriers can be moved close to the source of noise, no matter where it is on the site.

Project Managers

We work alongside Project Managers at every stage of rail projects. With early response we work with you during planning to develop a noise reduction strategy that can be rapidly deployed. When working on existing new builds or maintenance we come on board to reduce complaints and extend working hours through market leading noise control. Our rail barriers are designed to work in all weathers in tight spaces, and can be assembled and moved easily by just 1 person.

Rail Planners

We will work with rail planners from inception, to ensure your contractor is fully briefed and compliant, to help your project be delivered on time and budget. We understand the varied regulatory frameworks and ensure you meet requirements, keeping complaints to a minimum. Our products are extremely lightweight, making them ideal for lower logistics and transportation costs, integrating with a lean methodology.

Health & Safety Specialists

We enjoy enduring partnerships with health and safety managers. With rail projects often operating in multiple regulatory jurisdictions it is vital to ensure full compliance. Our products reduce noise on rail projects by up to 90%, improving community relations and workforce welfare.

Noise control to keep rail works on track

Case study

Earl's Court Station, London UK

"Echo Barrier once again provided us with a solution that really works"
Amir Rashid, Track Partnership

To expedite time consuming track improvement works at the busy Earl’s Court subway station, London, the station was closed for just 12 days over the Christmas period. Noise control was integral to ensuring longer operating hours and project success.


The Track Partnership installed our temporary acoustic barriers and tents to reduce noise and dust pollution. With great planning and swift deployment the project was completed on time, within budget, and with zero complaints.

Key Details
The noise problem
Closing a busy station can never been taken lightly but vital track improvement works were causing great inconvenience and delays over a protracted period. The Track Partnership decided on an intensive course of action and to close the station over the Christmas period to accelerate operations.
Our solution
Using Echo Barrier temporary acoustic barriers and tents, The Track Partnership created a sound buffer between operations and active stations. This protected commuters, tourists, and staff from nuisance noise, as well as dust and welding arcs.
The results
Swift deployment of Echo Barrier solutions ensured the work met all regulatory requirements and started promptly. The project then ran 24 hours a day until completion as planned. The Track Partnership were delighted with the outcome, and received zero complaints over the course of the project. Echo Barrier have since been re-engaged for subsequent works.
