All PLEXIGLAS® Soundstop noise barrier sheets can be provided with various functional surfaces for specific applications, such as Birdguard.

For bridges and overpasses, PLEXIGLAS® Soundstop GS CC noise barrier sheet incorporates polyamide filaments that hold broken sheet if impacted by a vehicle, preventing fragments from falling below.

PLEXIGLAS® Soundstop noise barrier is an acrylic product that was specially developed for use in noise control barriers. It is available in different grades to meet a variety of requirements, for example in extremely large sizes, various thickness and colours, with an integrated fragment retention system.
