Urban Protection Shield® - the transparent noise-abatement façade

Modular, functional and aesthetic noise barrier

Greater demands on effective sound and noise abatement that are currently being made by directives, people and the environment require solutions that strengthen the environment and the quality of life today and in the future. The transparent Urban Protection Shield® noise-barrier façade is the result of HERING’s collaboration with R. KOHLHAUER® that it entered into with the aim of developing a coherent overall concept that integrates effectively and aesthetically into residential areas, industrial zones and public spaces.

One-stop noise-abatement façade

Be it as a façade suspended between elements within existing buildings or a self-supporting steel structure for shielding the interior from the effects of outside noise, sound-reflecting or -absorbing, with building-integrated photovoltaic modules, modular and freely designable in terms of colour, our comprehensive glazed system provides the optimum sound insulation for urban spaces – from urban housing to industry.

At HERING, we think and act in terms of solutions and will realise your individual requirements efficiently and cost-effectively from a single source!

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.
