"H-Block" low noise barrier system

The H-Block low noise barrier system is a pre-cast concrete construction with integrated aerated concrete absorbers. As the most recent development by Hering in the field of noise protection, the H-Block obtained its approval from the German Federal Railway Organisation in December 2016.

Product description:

  • High sound absorption values thanks to aerated concrete absorbers
  • Noise absorption as close as possible to where it emerges (contact to wheels/tracks)
  • Unobstructed view for travellers and residents thanks to low construction height (up to 76 cm above top of tracks)
  • Fast and simple assembly during short intervals between trains
  • Shallow foundation as heavy-duty wall (no need for pile-driving or drilling)
  • No grounding necessary thanks to textile fibre reinforcement
  • Components can be walked over when trains are unintentionally stopped
  • Can be displaced during mechanical ballast cleaning
  • Individual components can be removed or replaced whenever necessary
  • Culverts for small animals can be integrated
  • Escape exits and surmounting aids can be integrated
  • Cable duct can be integrated in the system
  • Durable, low-maintenance and easy to disassemble
  • Appealing design to look at
Noise protection by Hering

In the area of noise protection, Hering employees have been planning, building and assembling both noise-protection walls as well as innovative low-noise protection walls and rail web dampers.
