Echo Barrier was founded by Peter Wilson, an acoustics expert with over 30 years direct experience in acoustic engineering. Peter had seen first hand the problems caused by noise pollution, and understood that fresh solutions were needed to improve conditions at both worksites and live events.
With a pioneering approach and deep commitment to innovation and R&D he launched his temporary acoustic barriers in 2010, and the subsequent pick-up from the market has proved remarkable. Echo Barrier have been improving conditions for manpower and communities ever since.Echo Barrier’s commitment to quality made us an industry leader, with contacts in fields such as construction, roadwork, rail, energy, power, mining, and event planning.Echo Barrier products were used in the construction of One World Trade Center in New York, the London 2012 Olympics, and the Sydney Light Railway.At Echo Barrier we strive for constant innovation. We aim to lead the world at combating noise pollution while maintaining our commitment to sustainability.
We’ve needed a meticulous approach, rigorous testing, and an overall commitment to quality design to establish the world’s best temporary noise control solutions. That is how our team innovate continually, creating best-in-class products that keep pushing the envelope further—we’ve moved transmission loss and acoustic absorption forward.
We believe in excellence in the lab and in the field, creating products that endure and perform in the toughest conditions. Hand-finished, high-spec, weather and waterproof. Excellence is our watchword.
Our experienced team know our portfolio of products inside out, having tested them extensively to make sure they give you the best results possible. We’re available on the phone 24/7, or will come out to visit you on-site. We’ll talk you through the best way to position, install and take down our barriers, to ensure you get optimum performance.Customer Support
By enabling intelligent noise management, Echo Barrier plays an increasingly important role in protecting the health and well-being of operatives and communities.
As the World Health Organization wrote in 2011: “Noise pollution is considered not only an environmental nuisance but also a threat to public health.” It is estimated that more than 30% of the population is regularly exposed to noise that has a negative impact on well-being, with stress and cardio-vascular disease among the associated risks.
Echo Barrier also takes its environmental responsibilities seriously, manufacturing products that contain no hazardous substances and which make substantial use of recycled materials.
Waste is minimised through Echo Barrier’s buy-back scheme: any acoustic panels that are returned at the end of their life are sent for recycling or disposal in accordance with strict guidelines from the Carbon Trust.
Echo Barrier has been awarded a 5-star rating for its carbon footprint and is well on track for the ISO 14001 Environmental Management Standard.
