Flexshield noise barriers to quieten night works

Temporary Noise Curtains for Nightworks

Builders and contractors working on city construction/ demolition sites face...

Builders and contractors working on city construction/ demolition sites face a dilemma.

On the one hand, they are pressured by developers to deliver the completed project on time or risk penalties.

On the other hand, they must comply with stringent noise restrictions or face steep fines.

It’s a real ‘lose-lose’ situation, and it is made worse by the fact that most city councils do not allow any audible noise between 6.30 pm and 6.30 am on weekdays and Saturday (unless a pre-arranged development approval.) The exception, of course, is where the ongoing site works may cause a significant traffic hazard or in situations that involve continuous work, such as a concrete pour.

Our temporary noise curtains allow night works to continue without impacting on neighbouring businesses and the broader community or incurring Direction Notices or fines.

Ideal as hoardings encompassing the entire site, or around mobile, fixed plant such as site generators, and specific projects like drilling operations and jackhammering, they have been designed to contain a wide range of noise frequencies.


Benefits of our Customised Noise Curtains

Also known as Sonic Curtains, our temporary noise curtains tick all the right boxes.

They not only form a sound barrier, but they also absorb the noise and have been NATA lab-tested (AS ISO 354-2006) to provide 26dB reduction at 1000Hz.

And the benefits keep coming. Flexshield’s Australian-made temporary noise curtains are:

  • Light
  • Fully transportable
  • Available in a range of sizes
  • Quickly and easily erected
  • Environmentally friendly
  • Fire and weatherproof
  • Economical
  • Safe


On top of that, they also help control the spread of dust and fumes.

The ultimate in customised soundproofing, our noise barriers are perfect for long or short-term applications (making them ideal for purchase or for hiring as and when needed).

You can specify vision panels, access doors or whatever suits your requirements, and at the end of the project, pack them up and send them back to Flexshield or take them on to the next job.

So if you want to soundproof your construction site and get on with the job after hours, plus improve efficiencies and meet your deadline – without infringing government legislation and incurring huge fines – choose Flexshield’s temporary noise curtain, and you’ll be ‘right on the night’.
