Transparent noise abatement with maximum effectiveness
The Urban Protection Shield® system consists of a steel structure in combination with transparent noise abatement elements. It can be installed as a suspended façade between existing building walls or as a free-standing steel structure. The overall structure is tested according to DIN EN 1793 Part 2 | (HS+ DIN EN 1793-1) and DIN EN 1794 Part 1. Each element has a sound reduction index of DLR = 33 dB and, only with the use of an inward-absorbing aluminium frame, sound absorption of DLα = 4 dB.
Photovoltaic modules in a transparent noise abatement façade
The construction industry, its products and structures account for a significant share of worldwide climate-damaging emissions, resource consumption, the generation of waste and the loss of biodiversity. Fortunately more and more companies are recognising this and paying attention to environmental protection in product development and manufacturing. They are attempting to offset their impact in other ways, such as generating electricity with photovoltaic modules. Integrating panes with photovoltaic modules in our Urban Protection Shield® is no problem. The glass-glass solar modules, also called double glass modules, are more durable and last longer than conventional solar modules. With a glass pane on the front and rear of the solar module, they provide better protection for the solar cells, extending the service life of the photovoltaic system as a whole.
Urban Protection Shield® scores triple points in terms of sustainability and environmental protection: In addition to photovoltaic module integration, the panes are printed to prevent bird strikes. The system can be fully disassembled as well and the materials can be recycled.
