Noise plank

Noise is a growing problem as more and more roads and residential areas are built. A correctly mounted noise barrier can provide peace and quiet, but also reduced transparency.

Many people are bothered by noise and noise. By fitting a noise protection in the right way, you can make it both calmer and quieter and achieve a reduced stress level. At the same time, you also reduce the visibility of your plot. We guide you on how to proceed when installing a noise barrier!


A good noise barrier should of course be sound-absorbing and privacy-protecting as much as possible. The most important thing for a noise protection to be effective is that it should be tight and placed in the right place. There are several different models on the market, both absorbent and reflective noise protection. Ask an expert and explain your situation to achieve the best possible results.


Regardless of whether you are going to build a plank to protect yourself from visibility from the neighbor or install a larger protection against noise, it is important to check that everything is done correctly. This is because in principle all planks are subject to a building permit. Therefore, contact your municipality and check what exactly applies to you and your noise barrier. Then you need to think about what kind of protection you want. It is possible to buy ready-made modules on the market as well as to build one yourself from loose timber.

A stable foundation is a must for the fence to withstand weather and wind and to be completely tight. The smallest crack in the noise protection makes a big difference in how sound is perceived on the other side of the fence. Keep in mind that noise protection should be designed to fit into the environment as a whole, taking into account, for example, the height of the road. Wood is therefore a suitable material because it is also light, strong and malleable.


Depending on how much you want to do yourself and how advanced gazebo you want, you have the opportunity to influence time and cost. If you do not want to build everything yourself, there are many different kits to choose from, with different degrees of difficulty. Another alternative is to take in professional help, but keep in mind that you are not entitled to a RUT deduction as a gazebo does not count as an extension to the residential building.
