Rapid
deployment

Echo Barrier's modular systems are designed to be easily and quickly deployed anywhere. They can be moved by one person, and attached to almost any structure. They can be easily modified fit any work environment. They are durable, weatherproof, and waterproof. Most importantly, they are tremendously effective at reducing noise.

Weatherproof

Our full range of acoustic barriers are officially certified as 100% weatherproof to IPX6 and IPX9 - BS EN 60529:1992. We put our finished products to the test, and they are certified waterproof. Even in a downpour, they don't absorb water.
Our panels use a special sound-absorbing composite material which allows them to work to full effect in all weather conditions.

Corporate image

Echo Barrier panels deliver more than just outstanding performance. They're a great way to improve and spread your company's image too. Our panels are designed to carry corporate branding; they're like multi-purpose billboards that always look like new, conveying a positive message for your company. The panels are hand-finished for outstanding durability and visual flair. They can be printed with logos, community care messages, and more. Their Class 5 PVC exterior won't fade in the sunlight, and can be jet-washed.

Market-leading durability

Echo Barrier's hand-finished products are made from the highest quality, most advanced materials. Our barriers last up to five times longer than our competitors' products, and can have a lifespan of more than 10 years. Because our barriers are waterproof, their performance doesn't diminish in damp or rainy conditions, and they are resistant to extreme temperatures (from -40° F to 158° F)

Exceptional acoustic performance

With its award-winning system of acoustic panels, Echo Barrier offers world-leading intelligent noise management. Our products are so effective thanks to our high-tech composite, which cushions and absorbs noise by up to 100% at certain frequencies. At low frequencies, our composite vastly outperforms conventional noise-absorbing materials. Echo Barrier's noise reduction barriers are lightweight and easy to transport. They're designed to adapt to changes in requirements and circumstances. They can be linked vertically and laterally to create an acoustic curtain or wall, and they can be doubled up to make a thicker barrier with increased noise attenuation.
Echo Barrier aims to offer you unbeatable performance no matter your noise-management challenge.

Our Story

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.
