Low noise barriers
Gabions Silenzio Forte

Silenzio Forte low noise-barrier system using gabions

Noise reduction at the point of contact between wheels and rails

On all railway lines, in listed areas, routes along valley floors – our Silenzio Forte low noise-barrier system features a high-quality absorber core with EBA approval and effectively intercepts sound where it’s generated. The element baskets of the three-chamber gabion system that have been designed in such a way that they can be walked on will fit harmoniously into any landscape. Filled with high-quality as well as sound-absorbing lava and dolomite rock, they absorb the rolling noise generated at the point of contact between wheels and rails by at least 6 db(A) and convince with their durability and flexibility.

HERING sustainability

At HERING, we see ourselves as pioneers in the field of sustainability. As early as 1996, we were the first construction company in Germany to obtain EMAS certification. Every three years, we publish an environmental statement documenting our goals and how we have achieved them. Actually, for the first time, we published a sustainability report with an integrated environmental statement in accordance with EMAS - a logical next step in view of our ecological and social responsibility. It documents how we deal internally and externally with the issues that are essential to our future viability.
