Small and effective: positioned directly adjacent to the track, Hering's low noise barriers ensure an effective reduction in the level of noise produced by rail traffic. Thanks to their low height and their appearance, the low barriers blend harmoniously into the surrounding landscape.
As part of the Economic Stimulus Package II, Hering implemented four pilot measures back in 2011 and built low noise barriers of the two systems on four very busy test lines. DB Netz AG recommends that both systems should be incorporated into the new "Schall 03" German guideline for railway noise emissions.
Constructed immediately adjacent to the track, the low Gabione barrier delivers an effective reduction in the amount of noise from trains travelling past.
The height of the Zbloc low noise protection system is comparable to that of the edge of a platform and the system is installed directly on the railway embankment.
The "H-Block" low noise barrier system is a pre-cast concrete construction with integrated aerated concrete absorbers.
