Jakoustic® Plus fencing was chosen to help reduce noise at Tennis World in Middlesbrough, a club with over 300 members and visitors who regularly use the three outdoor and six indoor courts.
Adjacent to the Tennis World complex and within a very close proximity to some of the modern outdoor tennis courts and a neighbouring skate park is a large electrical power substation. The substation was observed to be causing an audible continuous humming, causing annoyance for users of the nearby courts, as well as creating an eyesore visible from courts.
To protect and mitigate noise created by the substation, Jacksons supplied 93 metres of 6.5m high Jakoustic® Plus fencing to enclose the area.
Jakoustic® Plus was ideally suited to the project, as its mineral Rockwool fibre and protective membrane is designed for applications where a noise source is in a tight or confined area like the substation. The absorptive layer ensures that noise is reduced on the tennis courts by trapping and breaking down sound frequency, diffusing sound waves completely rather than reflecting it in a different direction.
The installation means that the unsightly substation is hidden from view, and protected by the flat timber profile of Jakoustic® Plus, which is extremely difficult to scale. Our acoustic barriers come with our 25 year Jakcure® guarantee, ensuring greater lifetime cost.
