Can you use shipping containers as an acoustic barrier?

Shipping Containers can be used as an acoustic barrier and offer excellent sound protection. You will want to ensure that the area you a want to shield from any noise has its line of site to any potential noise source entirely blocked by any shipping container wall you wanted to install.

Please feel free to check out our news article where we supplied 33x 40ft shipping containers to Tottenham Hotspur as part of their ongoing stadium redevelopment. The shipping containers were used to protect local residents from the dust and noise coming from site.

The corrugated sides help deflect noise away, and the price of shipping containers make this a very effective and attractive option versus other means.

We have also supplied shipping containers in the past to help farmers protect local residents from noise and dust coming from grain silos. There are a lot of potential applications for this sort of use.
