Acrylic Acoustic Barrier

We manufacture and install Acrylic acoustic barrier

Insametal manufacture, supply and install this type of plexiglass panels. Their advantages are their transparency and better visibility for pedestrians.
The acrylic barrier has a better aesthetic because of their components. These barriers are usually placed in locations that pedestrians can enjoy the view through the transparent plexiglass.

 

These transparent panels, unlike acoustic metal panels, only have the sound insulation feature, not absorb feature. However, like other panels, these are composed of a acrylic or polycarbonate components that will act as an acoustic insulator placed between two beams that support the panel.

Do not you know what mean acoustic and mechanical properties? We explain to you in this short post.
Acrylic barriers stand out for their transparent properties. These panels are mainly made with or without colour. Besides, this material fits into rigid frames as a supporting structure.

 

The panels can receive coloration and ornamental and decorative elements for a better integration into the environment. We can offer a wide variety of RAL colors. The most common colour is ice blue colour.

They are exist three types of treatments:

Hot Galvanized according to UNE in ISO 1461:

The regulation defines the hot galvanized as the formation or zinc coating in steel. Steel is submerged in a 450º molten zinc bath that causes that zinc be stuck on steel surface.

The primary aim of this procedure consists in prevent the steel rusting and corrosion that could be caused by moisture and environment pollution.

Thermo-lacquer according to UNE in 15773:

It is a process that applies a powder covering in thin layers to metal prepared to be placed into an oven and bakes it.

The architectural quality of polyester powder allows giving the better characteristics for a clean process of powdering and provides to good tough with a better aesthetical.

Duplex System (Hot Galvanized + Thermo-lacquer according to UNE in 15773):

We apply both procedures sequentially. Hot galvanized and thermo-lacquer. It is based on apply polyester powder to galvanized surfaces when is required a better result in corrosion proofing or when seeking a better aesthetical.

The purpose of acoustic protection depends on the material that we use. The most common is plexiglass, but the client can choose polycarbonate. We have a table below that we explain these materials.
Metacrilato
The screens fit between HEB/HEA or HEAA steel beams with IPE reinforcement. The quality of the metal is considered S275JR or similar according to EN 10025 regulation. These panels are galvanized and thermo-lacquered according to EN 1461 and EN 15773 regulations.

 

A perimeter frame is designed with EPDM rubber gaskets to get a better rigid structure. This frame is fixed between steel beams, which it is necessary to regulate depending on the height.
