Glass noise barrier – effective, modern, and timeless

The use of noise barriers significantly reduces noise along busy roads or railway lines. Noise protection measures can be found, for example, in residential areas near major roads or also along the motorway. There are now various solutions in terms of the materials that can be used for construction. RAU offers a wide range of noise barriers made of glass, wood , aluminium , or concrete , which are as sustainable as they are robust and bring with them a high level of sound insulation against noise.

The noise barrier made of glass is considered timeless, elegant and stylish and is therefore popular in residential areas. It blends in perfectly with the surroundings. It is also possible to opt for a green solution. Find out here what positive properties and possibilities a glass noise barrier brings with it!

An overview of the advantages of a glass noise barrier:

Use of laminated safety glass or PMMA (acrylic glass)
Use of acrylic glass, which convinces with its low weight
PMMA is 11 times more break-resistant than typical glass
The acrylic glass used can be 100 % recycled
Laminated safety glass convinces with high weather resistance
Laminated safety glass is easy to clean & graffiti resistant
Laminated safety glass & PMMA are robust thanks to high surface hardness
Light transmission prevents excessive shadow casting

Why a soundproof wall made of glass is a good solution

Not only concrete or wood keep noise and sound away from residents. A glass noise barrier is also an effective noise protection measure. Break-proof and stable laminated safety glass is used in its construction, which makes class B3 airborne sound insulation possible. This means that the walls meet the requirements of the highest noise protection class.

But the advantages of a noise barrier made of glass are even more versatile. For example, you get a product with excellent light transmission. At the same time, the laminated safety glass used is highly weather-resistant. The surface hardness is designed so that even external influences cannot harm the glass sound barrier wall. The pleasing appearance ensures that the glass noise barrier is ideal for use between buildings.

Noise protection made of glass from RAU: structure and properties

The RAU glass noise protection system is based on a deep foundation with foundation piles. Drilled piles or driven casings are used. The stable base is cast from concrete. Depending on your wishes, you have the option of having visual axes integrated. The use of large-format noise barrier components significantly reduces the proportion of elements based on steel construction. By using large panes, the transparency of our glass noise barriers is increased, which has a positive effect on the appearance and minimises shadow casting.

At the same time, RAU offers a choice of different transparent colours. The integration of the appropriate colour into the environment has a positive effect on the perception of the noise barriers. In addition to the loudness that can be reduced by a sound wall, the visual appearance also plays a significant role for the people who live next to them or have their gardens there.

Glass noise barrier: versatile expandability

At RAU, the construction elements are manufactured in our own production facility. In this way, we enable you to design your noise protection flexibly. The glass elements can be excellently combined with wood and aluminium in the space between the panes. Regardless of the combination, you receive certified and tested systems from us. This ensures that each system meets the high requirements for absorption as well as sound insulation values.

It should also be mentioned that the glass noise barrier can be built as a greenable variant. In this way, you create new habitats for insects and birds in addition to effective sound insulation. With an integrated bird screen, you reduce the risk of animals injuring themselves on the glass. Depending on the design you choose, the cost of the glass noise barrier will vary.
