Sound-absorbing Wall in Debrecen

January 2018

The main purpose of this sound-absorbing gabion wall is the separation of the manufacturing plant from the neighbouring residential area. Its role is to block out the operational noise. The steel structure is 4 m high and 40 cm thick. The height of the footing is 40 cm on average.

  • The wire fencing panels were of 5 mm wire thickness and with 5x5 cm aperture size.
  • The centre-to-centre distance of the supporting structure spacing is 1.970 mm.
  • Braced grider measurements:
    main grider: 60 x 80 x 3 mm hollow section;
    bracing: 40 x 40 x 2 mm hollow section.
  • Surface treatment: subsequent hot-dip galvanizing.

The sound-absorbing gabion wall was executed in stepped disposition adapted to the slope of the terrain.
