Soundproofed Urban Fences

Living in urban areas is often accompanied by noise from busy streets. The sound of horns, passing vehicles, and noises from other activities can disturb the peace and tranquility of your home. However, there is an effective solution to reduce the noise, that is by building a house fence specifically designed to reduce noise from the street.

First of all, choosing the right material is very important in dampening noise from the street. Choose a material that has good sound absorbing capabilities, such as thick wood, concrete, or solid brick. Thick wood can absorb and reduce sound vibrations coming from the road. Solid concrete and brick also have good soundproofing properties. Avoid using lightweight or transparent materials, such as wire fences or metal panels, as these materials are clearly not effective at dampening sound.

In addition to material selection, fence design also plays an important role in reducing road noise. Consider a design with solid or solid panels without gaps. Gaps in the fence can allow street noise into your yard. Opt for a tight, gapless design for maximum sound barrier. You can also consider acoustic panels, which are specially designed to dampen sound by using sound-absorbing materials.

The height of the fence is also an important factor in reducing road noise. Higher fences have a better ability to block direct sound from the street. Commonly used height ranges from 1.8 to 2.4 meters. However, it is also important to pay attention to local ordinances or residential neighborhood regulations regarding the maximum allowed height.


In addition, there are some additional steps you can take to increase the effectiveness of the fence at dampening street noise. You can add a layer of sound insulation to the inside of the fence to improve soundproofing. You can also plant dense greenery around the fence to help absorb sound and create an additional layer of natural sound barrier.

While you’re at it, why not also combine some laser cutting decorative elements to decorate your fence, hiding soundproofing elements such as rockwool or others.

Hope you find this useful!
